Sleep is a Necessity Not a Luxury


I was following a disciplined routine until I was 18 where I use to sleep at 10 in the night & wake up by 6 in the morning…

This all changed when my passion to hack my newly brought Pentium100 during 1998… Buying a system was still a luxury… I use to work the whole night…

Then by 1999 I got internet connection at home & by this time my routine started to collapse… My sleeping hours started to shrink…

By 2000 I started my company and by now my working hours increased to 16 – 18 hours a day… My sleeping hours were between 2 – 3 hours a day… This is the number of hours I slept until 2009… I took pride in telling that I just slept for 2 – 3 hours a day…

But lack of sleep for almost a decade started to take its toll on my health…

For last 2 months I suffered from severe back pain because Muscle Spasm(Muscle Catch)… I was told it is mainly because of lack of sleep…

I was asked to do some stretch exercise & to sleep a lot… For last 2 weeks I’m sleeping for 8 – 10 hours a day… Now I don’t feel any pain in my back…

Today I drove to Bangalore & still feeling comfortable…

Now it is too late I realize the importance of sleep… These are some effects of sleep deprivation on me;

  • Severe indigestion
  • High Body Heat
  • Eye power increase & eye pain
  • Muscle Catch
  • Over eating

I’m struggling to bring in some discipline in my working hours & start taking care of my health as I’m not getting younger…
