Wolfe Counting Sheep ~ My personal sleep 'study'

    I've finally collected a full year's worth of data, crunched the numbers, and written a blog article on the results from my informal, personal year long sleep log exercise

    I should note that I am a mild-moderate PWME and that there are a million and one ways to interpret the results - it may be unsound to draw too many conclusions for other PWME, even those with similar levels of severity of illness

    Highlights include mild exercise enhancing how I felt on subsequent days (more intensive exercise had mixed, and often detrimental, impacts), the benefits of unorthodox front sleeping, and the influence of seasonality

    Sleep duration was detrimentally effected by being awoken or awakening in the night and hyperventilation, and periods of unconsciousness appeared lengthened by back sleeping and multiple awakenings e.g. (early) morning

    Enjoy! :)
