S.A TRIVIA QUESTION
Which legendary South African flyhalf tried out for the Dallas Cowboys in 1983?
Answer: Naas Botha
In September 1752 the Julian calendar was replaced with the Gregorian calendar in Great Britain and its American colonies. The Julian calendar was 11 days behind the Gregorian calendar, so 14 September got to follow 2 September on the day of the change. The result was that between 3 and 13 September, absolutely nothing happened!
How to Determine How Much Sleep You Need
Sleep is essential to life, but how much quality sleep we need varies from person to person. How do you know how much sleep you need?
To truly determine the amount of sleep your body needs, you'll have to be able to enjoy unstructured, uninterrupted, and undisturbed sleep for a few days. Ideally, you'll want to sleep this way for a week, but that's a rare luxury for most people. Two or three days, a weekend or so, will do. Just let everyone around you know that you are not to be disturbed.
Pick a time to go to sleep each night. It is very important that this be the same time every night, regardless of when you woke up, or whatever else you did that day. To determine the amount of sleep you truly need, you'll also need to avoid altering your natural sleep cycle with medications, alcohol, or behavior changes (like giving up caffeine for the weekend). Make sure you are going to SLEEP at the same time each night, so enjoy your other bedroom activities before that scheduled sleep time.
Remove all alarms, lights and other distractions from your bedroom. You do not want your sleep interrupted in any way, and you do not want anything to wake you up in the morning. In a perfect world, we would wake up naturally when our bodies have fully rested and recharged. That's what you'll be trying to replicate in this sleep test.
Record what time you wake up naturally. Do not hit snooze (you shouldn't have an alarm on anyway!), and do not roll over and try to sleep more, even if you're still tired. The first morning can be difficult for some people because you're probably sleep-deprived from your day-to-day life. After a few nights of this sleep test, however, you should notice that your total sleep time becomes consistent, and that you feel much more rested in the morning. Whether you're naturally waking after five hours or nine hours, that's your personal sleep requirement. Strive to get that much sleep each night, and your waking hours will be much healthier and happier.
