Breakfast Babble is ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up (or not) for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.


When we simply don’t want to face the world, there is something that we do to escape. Sleep is such an escape for me. I love sleeping. That’s it. 

I feel upset, I go off to sleep. I don’t understand what to do, I go off to sleep. I feel addled, I go off to sleep. I literally can sleep anywhere, anytime. I can sleep through a catastrophe too. 

Normally, I am a very calm and composed person but don’t you dare wake me up from my sleep, even if I told you to. Once I escape, it takes 10 alarms, switching off the fan by mom and the panic that if I don’t get up now, she might throw me along with my bed out of the house, to wake up. 

Do you know people who set alarms such as 7.00 a.m., 7.05 a.m., 7.10 a.m. up till 7.30 a.m., but still wake up at 8.30? I fit into that category. That’s how much I love this escape route that I do not feel like coming back.

Apart from an escape, sleeping has turned into a hobby for me. I sleep when I get bored too. I know that’s bizarre, and that must be changed too. The pandemic has exacerbated this problem. I realised that I could sleep for more than 12 hours.

I have turned into that type of a person who puts her career at stake, for a five-minute extra sleep in the morning. Have you heard the rap, ‘Apna time aayega’? I think my time has come and gone, thinking that I am dead. But actually, I was deep asleep. 

I heard that sleep is the best escape for overthinkers, and I couldn’t agree more. When you cannot control your mind, cannot get rid of your thoughts and feel scatterbrained, what you can do then and there is sleep. That is probably the worst advice, but somehow, it works for me. 

Not that when you wake up, all your problems are gone, your work is done, and everything falls into place on its own. But I feel so rejuvenated and for me, it’s like starting life afresh. That I can handle stuff now. 

I firmly promote the concept of sleeping for at least 7 hours. Not as a means of escape, but you need it to stay healthy. But on Sundays, I feel that time could be extended. 

People go on vacations to enjoy, discover places, and meet new people. But my concept of an enjoyable vacation is lying on soft, bouncy hotel beds, and sleeping. No, it is not boring. 

Some animals like bears and snails are blessed with ‘hibernation’. I wish that humans should have been gifted with something like that. Life would have been so easy then. 

Do you relate to this stuff? Or are my friends correct, that I am a sloth in the body of a human? Do let me know in the comments below.
