I often reminisce about the good old days when people would enjoy a good night’s sleep. Interestingly, people in other countries look towards the future for a better and more facilitated life while we look back to fondly remember the better days. As a matter of fact, pessimism and cynicism are the two natural responses to the way things are unfolding here. We rarely hear people say ‘I slept like a log’. All that we hear is how they stayed up during the night or how they got up many times to switch on and off their power generators. People no longer look forward to the onset of night to rest their weary limbs and reinvigorate themselves for the following working day. Nights are no longer welcomed.
