Having been frequently sleep deprived, I can speak from experience when I say that nefarious napstealers can attack at any time, especially when you least expect it. An important thing to prevent sleep deprivation is to set a sleeping schedule, but the problem is that things get in the way and as you are working or watching television or just sitting around doing nothing, time seems to get away and before you know it, the napstealers are at it again and you’ve been nefariously distracted again.
To avoid these complications, set a time when you will go to sleep and begin preparing up to an hour beforehand, by avoiding distractions and beginning to relax. Then, when the napstealers present themselves, they will be thwarted by your careful preparation and planning. While this is not a comprehensive list by any means, sleep loss, sleep deprivation and napstealers can wreak havoc on a person who does not have their sleep patterns under control.
I’m sure that there are many other ways which readers can suggest to help set good sleep habits to establish healthy sleep patterns. We would like to hear from you, our dear readers. Submit your ideas for avoiding napstealers and other siesta thieves in our essay contest.
