So, I know a few people who followed my previous blog liked to do the whole Q&A thing, and I have been sitting on these questions for awhile now… I don’t expect a lot of answers because this is a brand spanking new blog, but hey, why not start off with a Q&A?
So here we go. I know some of these are commonly asked, but bear with me…
Do you have a “before bed” ritual that you do, well… before going to bed? If so, how long have you had this ritual? How uncomfortable are you if you cannot, for some reason, perform it?
Does sleeping in someone else’s space make you uneasy? or can you sleep anywhere?
Where is the strangest place you’ve spent the night? How well did you sleep there, if at all?
When you were a child, did you have a preferred blanket or toy you couldn’t sleep without?
If you could build the perfect mattress for you, what would it be made of?
Do you sleep with your bedroom door opened or closed? or does it matter?
What is the longest consecutive period of time time you’ve gone without sleep?
Contrarily, what’s the longest consecutive period of time you’ve slept?
Have you been informed that you snore? or do you sleep with someone who snores? What, if anything, do you do about it?
Everyone dreams, it’s a scientific fact, but do you — in general — remember your dreams?
Do you think that the dreams you remember are significant in any way?
How difficult/easy is it for you to go to sleep once you lie down at night? and/or wake up once you get out of bed?
Have you ever had an episode of sleep paralysis?
Do you wear bedclothes of any kind? or do you prefer to be au naturel when slipping under the covers?
If you have pets — cats, dogs, and the like — do they share your sleeping space or is it a “humans only” area?
When it comes to going to bed and waking up, are you on a schedule (bed by X up at Y) or do you just go with the flow of your body’s rhythms?
Have you ever had hypnagogic hallucinations? They’re very common…
Can you sleep without blankets? or must you have something covering you when you sleep?
Do you need silence to sleep? white noise? or do you fall in the middle, and you can sleep no matter what’s going on in the background?
Do you have any superstitions or taboos regarding the bedroom and/or sleeping? For example, no shoes and/or hats on the bed.
And so there you are… questions! I dunno why. Some people like questions. I like questions. I was lying awake one night and thought, “I should ask some questions on my blog…” and so I did. You’re free to answer them or not. I’m not the boss of you. But I’ll answer them in my next post. Just writing and editing them was enough for me for now. I’ve gotta take a rest. Blah. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed them. I look forward to your answers.
Just for fun… Simon’s Cat.
