I don't know.
Perhaps paying close attention to the person dying?
To what you can do to make it easy for them?
To what's going on around you?
To the consequences that will follow?

These are actions...not the emotions that are being repressed which was what I was asking for. I don't disagree with your list, but that's not what we were discussing...reveling is what we were discussing.

That's the problem, there is no making the unknown, death, easier or less scary for the person passing.

Emotions are not actions or re-actions. Emotions inspire the will towards actions or re-actions. Emotions are the impetus for human existence upon which all else is built or created. Now back to your other repressed emotions?

When actions are not fully expressed they are experienced as feelings.
When a woman is sexually aroused by a man but she represses it, she experiences it as some kind of tension within the body.
When a man limits the expression of his sexual desire out of respect for some other more important inclination, he experiences it is a deep and pleasant feeling inside his body.
The former is repression, the latter is sublimation.

Everything is based on a feeling, every experience is underlined by an emotion, some are noticeably more powerful than others so as to seem to distract from thoughts/rationality, but they were there all along as a baseline of the operation to live.

An emotion leads to an action, a release of sorts, I agree. Wouldn't that be another form of expression, just not seen as a normal type of communication such as speaking our thoughts? Doesn't what inspires us to move, to be, need the totality of our body, our being to respond? Emotions are that inspiration. Once a person can pinpoint their emotion, it is already too strong to be contained, so yes, it needs to be expressed through an action of release.

The former is repression, the latter is sublimation. If emotions are needs to be dealt with, needs our total selves bring to our attentions in degrees of intensity, how are either repression or sublimation healthy for our being as a whole when the emoted need is not met but unanswered or redirected/avoided?

If I get a job I will barely have 5 hours per day that aren't job-related.
9 hours of sleep.
8 hours of work.
3-4 hours of commute.
Unless I don't sleep.

How can anyone sleep less than 9 hours?

You have to be really good at time management. A lot of time is wasted throughout the day in little chunks; those windows have to be used as much as possible, with little time wasted, so basically you have to plan your whole day. I've been experimenting with sleep also (I often work 12-16 hr shifts). If you need 9 hrs of sleep a day, you can still break it up (like 6+3, or 7+2). The body can hold off and will take what it needs as soon as it can get it. As long as it adds up to 9 (or whatever time your body needs) at the end of the day or soon thereafter, you should be fine. People say you need uninterrupted 9hrs every day, but for me I found it's not necessary. However, if you're short on sleep hours at the end of the day and for a few days, you'll feel it (on super busy days, like after 20 hrs of work my body keeps going but my brain starts to slow down and I know that I'm reaching my limit).
Many people commute by bus and just sleep on the bus, that's + 2-3 hrs of added sleep that your body needs. It may be uncomfortable, but when you have to prioritize this is what may be the best thing to do. I guess my point is that the body will adjust to whatever routine you have as long as its basic needs get met. [Maybe you can invest into an ostrich pillow too. It could come in handy. It's stylish too! ;)]

Public transit is always a risk. Especially for me who has a trouble sticking to a routine. I need flexibility.
If I fall asleep on the bus I'll wake up in another city.
Happened to me once.
My basic needs are already met.
I have food, shelter, etc.
I need a job only because I want to have children.

MA,
A job closer to home with less hours would give you more free time, but is that a possibility?

Long sleep is mandatory for maintaining healthy testosterone levels and proper cognitive and physical functioning. You're clearly deficient in all these areas and a stark example of what happens when sleep is neglected.

We evolved to sleep from sunset to sunrise, but we've been tinkering with our sleep and food ever since we started using fire. Cognitively, I think sleep deprivation affect memory the first (I believe it's short term memory) and there may be some merit to the notion that it affect hormones too. But like I said, we've been adopting to our environments for a long time now. Living in extreme latitudes would be a good example, where there is differing seasonal amounts of sunlight and food available, which should also interfere with sleep cycles. I'm guessing there would have been more sleep deprivation in summer, when the sun stayed up longer, providing more time for food gathering and storage; and the opposite would happen in winter when people tended to stay indoors and conserve energy.

[Man, I can just picture military commanders sending each other time-out notes because their troops didn't get their 8hrs of sleep or 3 square meals a day. *chuckles*.]

Well, I suppose if you live in a country side with no electricity and you do not want to waste your lighting fuel, you might as well go to sleep when it gets dark.
But if you have access to electricity, and it doesn't cost much to you, you can work on extra projects after dark or before it's light out. In my experience, most country dwellers looked favorably to having access to electricity and hot running water, which entailed being able to do things after dark (like going out to see a movie or socialize with others).

Once the availability of electricity spread during the late 1880's on, by 1920's most households had it. Country folks might have had to wait another decade for all the power lines and stations to pop up which would make it four generations worth of a transition to the night light we have today. Hardworking country folks who are on the go since sunrise literally have no energy to stay awake at night. Every time I go camping, long laborious days, I crash at sunset.

Do it, Wendy!

When I was a massive Bowie fanatic I did some bizarre things to get as close as I could to him including dressing up as a cleaner to get into the green room (a tent behind the stage), sneaking into his hotel and pretending to be a guest sunning myself by the rooftop pool or drinking in the guests’ only bar. The only way to pay for drinks was to charge it to your room and, since we didn’t have a room, we made up a number and got smashed night after night on someone else’s account.

I made the mistake of telling a friend who was a large woman with enormous boobs, an ex-prostitute, a ‘card and palm reader’ and an alcoholic. Man, did she get us into trouble? I cringe when I think about it but it was so funny at the same time. She caused scenes with Jeremy Irons (the actor), Dire Straits and Bette Midler. Bowie stayed away from us. :cry: (Another friend snagged him and she wasn't even a Bowie fan... but that's another story).

Some of the funniest -- and most excruciatingly embarrassing -- things happen when you let you let your inner groupie out. Go for it, Wendy!!

These vids were filmed here but ended my Bowie infatuation. He had gone commercial. He had crossed over to the dark side.
