Sounds like an odd question but ever since I’ve known my wife, she seems to get an awful lot of sleep.
I first met her in the UK, we studied at the same uni. After she became my girlfriend she moved in with me, I would find it odd that she’d often have cat-naps during the day. She always went to bed earlier than me at about 11 or 12 and woke up at about 8am. What I didn’t get was why she needed to sleep for an hour after shopping, eating or anything. She’s healthy, slim and young so I don’t really understand why she’s always so tired?
When we got back to Taiwan she was the same, whether she was working hard or not, weekends or weekdays - she’d always be getting her cat-naps in. I go to bed at about 3 or 4am and wake up at 10 or 11 and I never ever feel tired during the day - I just can’t figure out what’s going on.
I always thought it was just my wife, but quite a few Taiwanese girls I know all say they love sleeping, sometimes I ask them what they did over their weekends - and quite frequently they’ll say they were just sleeping.
Has anyone else noticed this or does anyone have any idea what’s going on? Is it the result of a diet based on white rice? Is there something funny in the water???
