Are you getting a good night’s sleep?

Maybe it has nothing to do with how much caffeine you’re ingesting after 2pm.  Maybe it has nothing to do with eating sweets after dinner.  Maybe you don’t have to worry about too much exercise after 6p giving your body too much adreneline.

Maybe it’s something much more basic than all that.

We all know the common diet theory of drinking eight glasses of water a day. (We’ve heard variations on this that say that eight glasses is a misnomer, and you need to take your weight and divide that by 2 to give you the number of ounces of water to drink a day).

Do you – or someone you know – suffer from SYNESTHESIA?

That’s the neurological condition where someone experiences one sense at the same time (or in place of) experiencing it in the traditional way.

One of Web Watch’s friends has this condition, and when they hear specific words, they also end up visualizing that word in front of them at the same time.  Some people see colors by smell, or can hear what tree bark sounds like by touching it.

Look, we know that the above isn’t the best explanation about what’s going on in some people’s heads, but the point is that some people just are better at visualizing things in a manner that the rest of us could just never understand.
