Discussion Summary

Explorer Karen reports to the group on an article based on a book by Roger Ekirch on 'segmented sleep' covered in a recent conversation with the Huffington Post. The group members discuss changes in their sleep patterns. One member describes in detail how she has resigned herself to regularly rising in the middle of the night to accomplish many of her daily tasks, and tells how she compensates during the day.
