Sleep Is Not The Most Important Thing – Martha Stewart
“I find that when you have a real interest in life and a curious life, that sleep is not the most important thing.”
– Martha Stewart
Do not pity the overworked, because for a lucky subsect of the workforce, there are people who are happy to keep their nose to the grindstone, to sacrifice some of the things that health and wellness, better-living blogs insist are integral to your life (like sleep, labored homemade dinners, meditation, and a rigorous fitness routine) for the work that they do and the interests they harbour. Martha Stewart will be fine, even though she sleeps a reported four hours a night. After all, why would anybody who leads such a charmed life during her waking hours – filled with supportive people, immense success, an exciting career, a house in the Hamptons and a lifestyle that is founded upon the creation of beautiful things – want to spend any more time than the doctor-recommended minimum being unconscious? And, of course, you don’t need to be Martha Stewart to find your real life more engrossing than the lulls of sleep: you just need to find passion, curiosity, and career that continues to motivate you and satisfy you. Forget the sleep deprivation, that’s the hard part.
