How much sleep does Karachiites get?

8:00 Wake up. Go to work/school.
(Late at work, no big deal, part of the game)
5:30- 6:00 Leave office
(Reach home by 7:30- 8:00, thanks to traffic jams)

Some socializing?
Leave home at 9:00 and back at midnight.

Weekday? Office the other morning?

We Karchiites sleep for only 8 hours?

    only 8 hours? ” ??

    I guess that’s okay and its average. Though 6 hours is normal for me but I know others sleep for 8 or 9 normally. So what’s so strange?. And by the way aren’t we sleeping for 59 years now ?. So wake up Paki’s

    On Sleep, from wikipedia…

    An American study linked life spans with sleep amount and found that those who sleep 4 to 7 hours live the longest, with those sleeping less than 4 or more than 9 hours living shorter lives. The National Sleep Foundation however maintains that 8 hours of sleep is optimal, claiming improved performance in tests, reduced risk of accidents and a better immune system. It is important to mention this does not apply to children and adolescents, particularly children who require as much as 13 hours a night.

    8 hrs of sleep is a luxury
    Wakeup at 6 am , Namaz and than sleep
    Again wake up at 7 am my 4 yr old sleeps at 8pm on the clock and wakes at exactly 7 am and wants to play at that time ( I blame my late hour working for that )
    I again sleep at 7:45 when he goes to his school and again awake at 8:15 , get ready and speed towards my office at exactly 5 to 9 am ( my office is only 3 min from y place and I always take SahahreFaisal )

    Come back home between 8 – 9 pm , Dinner and play with my 1 yr old till 12 am to be awake again at 2 am , 3 am , 4 am and 5 am so my sleep is divided between 4 – 6 hrs

    Any individual working 8 hours a days 5-6 days a week,and working at home as well(women specially)finds it hard to get a satisfied sleep..or any time for own self is a real luxury..only we count on weekends,to give time to our own selves…& that too only when we are finished wth the pending household chores…
    i really wish the working hours would be less…ideally 8-1 or 8-2…or even 8-3 woulld do…..that way we can enjoy daylight atleast…outside the walls/bounderies of our close Offices…everyone needs to enjoy life,and to live to the fullest….

    I see a busy Karachi. Good, I like that. Busy life styles make future of the country. Even though I live in a small town in UK people hardly get 8 hours sleep. Karachi is a hub of Pakistan we should work to make it better.

    It should be “How much sleep do Karachiites

    Basic stuff.

    If somebody is getting 8 hours of sleep thats blessing for him/her. We can have that much of sleep only during weekends.

    I remember that when I use to live in Khi long time ago, I had enough time after coming from job to see my friends, to spend time at home to watch tv and can do lot of things, weekends use to be soo big that after having enough sleep in the afternoon we use to go to Seaview have fun and then have dinner at restaurant,
    but here in US although each and everything is so convenient then also we dont have enough time to do anything, no social life at all, I dont know if its same in Karachi also now-a-days ? Is it because there is no any barakah in time or what ? What do you guys say ?

  12. Aussi_Paki (unregistered) on November 1st, 2006 @ 7:25 pm

    Agree with Khitorpit, the time is never enough here =/ hence no social life at all. Its a matter of making time for social life, which at least my family doesnt make – not good for health.

    8 hours sounds more than enough. Most of us get less than that.

    8 hours of sleep is a blessing. This is how a good weekday goes for me (in Isloo):

    9-10am: Wake up and rush to work
    4pm: Have “breakfast” (usually consists of something quick and healthy, like a bag of chips)
    7pm: Go and meet some friends or find a mechanic still open to fix the car
    10pm: Get back to work
    1:30am: Get called out by friends, maybe have a pizza
    3am: Go home
    4am: Go to sleep

    Don’t even get me started on the bad days.
