I’m a graphs nerd I’ve come to find out. I like to see things rather than read them. I want to see visually how something is changing or not changing rather than just hearing about it. So, I got this thing called a FitBit a while back that does just that. It sort of stalks me. I wear it all the time and it basically tracks all my activity and even sleep. How awesome is that?
So obviously being on the road there are some pretty drastic changes between road sleep and home sleep, but I’ve never actually been able to track it… until FitBit. Check this out. The first chart is bus sleep from the other night. I don’t think I need to explain what’s happening on there. It’s pink and blue… with some numbers… check it out.
And here’s home sleep last night. All of the sudden it makes a lot of sense why there are times when we are all wandering around a venue looking like a deer in headlights. I “woke up” 53 times on the bus and only 12 at home? Now, I’m not sure what this thing classifies as “waking up” but talk about a drastic difference eh?
How’s your sleep?
Flying back from Dallas last week, my flight was at 2:10… in the afternoon…. in the middle of the day… on a Thursday. As I looked around the plane I saw countless people looking exactly like the picture above… at 2:10… in the afternoon… in the middle of the day… on a Thursday.
Now, I’m not saying that taking a little cat nap or something on a plane is a weird thing. But what I will say is that it’s pretty bizarre when it’s the middle of the day and there’s the mouth open, eyes rolling around, snoring, can’t keep your head up type of sleep going on. I mean, seriously, it’s the middle of the day. What would you normally be doing right now? Even if you weren’t on a plane?
Let’s say you’re off work, the yard work is finished but you are home and have some “free time” to just do nothing. Are you thins lethargic and out of it at home?
Maybe it’s me. Maybe it’s something in the air they put on airplanes. Maybe it’s a weird thing. I don’t know. Maybe this is the reason Stats Suck On Sunday. Either way, are you a “plane sleeper”?
