Have only what you need.

I am using a laptop on the floor of the living room and I am watching Pickle sniff curiously at my computer. He will never be able to use a computer or understand what it is. He has everything he needs. He's completely satisfied with food, water, a home, and love.
How come we as people have to have everything. We need a computer, a good cup of coffee every morning, nice clothes, cars, and decorations for our houses. We have come to the point where all we can think about is what we want to have, instead of what we need to have. We become so concerned and dependent on these material things. Do these things really matter? Or can we survive with out them?
Could we live like Pickle?

Sleep-- What is the ideal amount

Sleep- the natural periodic suspension of consciousness during which the powers of the body are restored (Webster). With our well packed lifestyles, I am not too sure if we are even allowing our selves that periodic suspension of consciousness. I would like to think that there is an important thing about sleep than how long we sleep, but how well we sleep, do we fall right into sleep and when we wake up do we feel that we need more sleep? I think even if we get less 6 hours of sleep if we can convince our selves that it is enough, we will realize that we could live with less sleep, I think if we tire our selves during the day we should sleep well that night. Does running around make us tired or do we tired working with our minds, which part of the body needs rest, its different for different people but I think if we spend time to understand how we want to rest, I think we would sleep better over time.

Are you Sleeping?

How much sleep does an adult need to maintain an active healthy lifestyle? Do you think sleeping is mostly mental... like if you know you aren't getting 8 hours you 'think' you are tired but it's only because you usually get more? What do you think Dr Weirdo, PhD?

Here it is. #1

I think that blogging could definitely cause me to go mental.

thanks for getting me started. I will post more as I go. We can write ideas down here to start our book. What do you think?

Most of these will probably take place at work due to my lack of work. Hopefully I will come up with something good.
