We all are losing sleep watching the Beijing 2008 Olympics. With coverage all night long, who can shut their eyes during an exciting team table tennis match? And of course we all watched Michael Phelps break every world record and win 8 gold medals, becoming the best Olympian EVER.
And why would you miss the women’s all-around gymnastic finals, wondering if Nastia Liukin or Shawn Johnson was going to get the gold?
America is a group of insomniacs lately. Dr. Nancy Snyderman has some tips for fellow Olympaholics:
1. Stay hydrated.
2. Tell yourself you only need four hours of sleep – really.
3. Wear sunglasses to hide red eyes.
4. Crank up your iPod and listen to anything Michael Phelps does.
5. Skip work (you’re never going to see an Olympics like this again anyway.)
But remember. If you do fall asleep, you may dream about the beautiful male swimmers. Aaron Peirsol may join me in dreamland any time.
Until tomorrow, signing off.
