Summer; Tsetse and me

heat wave started and sleeping waves started and from the very first days of it I feel like if tsetse kissed me the kiss of sleep;


Napoleon advocated 'six hours of sleep for a man, seven for a woman and eight for a fool'


but really Why do we sleep longer in summer?

I wonder why we sleep longer in summer especially when heat waves strike us; I sleep 8 hours only usually but in summer I sleep 8 hours at night but with three or four naps during the day and if I don't have work I just sleep all the day and wake up feeling I weight like elephant

I don't now if I feel normal or not but when I decid to stay awake I can do it with ease but I always prefer to sleep more in summer.

is it because we stay more active in summer so we get tired? but I have same work schedule the only thing I decided to alter is not to work after six pm and stay away from computer after working hours just to enjoy the summer social activities.

  2. You're just Lazy :)
    who wouldn't prefer napping to working ... I would!
    In Mexico they promote something called a "Power Nap" where they would take a 15 to 30 minutes nap in the afternoon. I tried it couple of times and the results were not bad!

  3. I think it's a natural reaction by your body to cool you down when not moving
    Feel sleepy --> sleep --> less movement --> less heat
