“3 of the 4 engineers responsible for the "O-ring failure" had received less than 4 hours' sleep the three nights prior to the launch, if my memory serves me right.”

hsenpfeffer on Dec 5, 2013 at 12:55:01

“The engineers involved recommended not launching. They were overruled by managers making a "business" decision which the engineers were excluded from. The project was behind schedule and Thiokol management was afraid of the black eye another launch delay would give them. This is from the official Air Force investigation. The decision had nothing to do with sleep deprivation and everything to do with private enterprise business decision making overriding quality, technical expertise or common sense.”

“Agree. Studies have shown improved alertness of 150 minutes after a nap of 15 minutes. Most, if not all, Mammalians have two sleep periods; one at night and another one at mid-afternoon.”

“Thanks for the tips. I do have a question about the first one. Acharya Pattanjali recommended Vairagya (detachment) as a prerequisite for meditation. Will "setting up your intention" go against that?”

“Sri Patel, thanks for your question. The answer is in the Gita. Commit to your practice whole-heartedly, but don't be attached to the results. Best, Mirabai (www.mirabaibush.com)”

Sleep Better While Sick With A Cold Or The Flu

Commented Jan 18, 2013 at 11:35:03 in Healthy Living

“These tips will help you sleep better when suffering from flu; 1. Taking over the counter nasal decongestant spray (Afrin) as needed will keep your nose open and help you get sleep. Use it only for a short period of time (less than 1 week.) Do not take it if you high blood pressure. 2. Using saline nasal spray, or better, saline wash will clear out some of the sticky secretions and help reduce the postnasal drip and the cough. 3. Gargling with hot salt water just before bedtime will act as a decongestant and will help you breath through your nose for several hours. You can repeat it as needed at night. 4. A sip or two (sorry guys) of brandy before bedtime will sterilize your pharynx and will make your throat feel better. 5. Keep a humidifier running next to your bed to soothe your dry airways.”

“These are the tips I share with my patients to help them get ready for school. 1. Stop late night activities a week before the start date. 2. Start waking up earlier by 30 to 60 minutes each day the week prior so that on the first day of school, you wake up at 6 am. 3. Turn off TV and your phone at 9 pm. 4. Be careful driving to and from the school as you are at increased risk for drowsy driving related accidents in the first week. 5. Take a PREM power nap in your study hall to recharge your brain. And the most important tip, have fun studying! God bless you all.”

“Sleep deprivation also impairs our judgement and self-control such that we end up eating unhealthy food in unusually large quantities. In addition, it also makes us lethargic and physically inactive, which reduces our calorie consumption.”

“There was a recent study, Patty, from Australia proving that infants got less sleep when both parents were working compared to those infants whose only one parent worked!
The biological reason behind their bullying behavior may be secondary to overactive Amygdala (our fear center.) We as parents have failed to lead by example as you mentioned. Great article and equally good discussion.”

“I agree with you. As a two-income family, it is difficult to pick up our child after our work day, make a home-cooked and healthy meal, do homework, bath, etc. -- and then it's bedtime. Really hard to fit in anything else before our 6 yo's bedtime of 8 p.m. and we don't for just that reason. Quality sleep takes precedence over any other activities in our house.”

“It will be nice if one can develop an iPhone app which would give you dual alarms; you set up wake up alarm and it automatically sets up "go to bed" alarm! It can also give you a choice of number of sleep cycles you prefer 4, 5 or 6 perhaps if you are trying to pay up your sleep debt.

Very practical advice on an important issue, Doc. Loved the "counting back" advice very much. Good job. Keep blogging!”

Jen0141 on May 29, 2011 at 22:46:09

“I know there's an iphone app that you can use to automatically wake you up at the best time in your circadian rhythm - you lay it on your bed near your pillow and it measures your movement throughout the night, and wakes you up when you are not in a deep sleep. I don't know what it's called, my brother had it on his phone.”

“To maximize productivity and life in the morning, I find "Bed to Bike" extremely helpful. As soon as alarm goes off, I jump from bed to stationary bike and start paddling. Using laptop on AirDesk, I browse emails, read posts, and get ready for my day. The other techniques discussed above are extremely helpful too. Bright light exposure can help too especially for those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. A simple way of achieving it is to look at bright lamps in the bathroom. You can also buy a sunrise simulator alarm clock from Phillips from Amazon.com (Philips Hf3485 Wake-up Light Plus.) The other technique I find helpful is a nice cup of coffee or in my case, cardamom tea! Hot shower followed by mindful meditation works great too. I Agree completely with good sleep hygiene as a necessary starting point. Great article. Congrats.”
