KUALA LUMPUR: Singapore-born actor Erwin Dawson has always struggled with severe sleep deprivation ever since he was a teenager.
“When I was in school, I’d stay up to study or play games. Turning in late had never been an issue.
While he never viewed it as a problem when he was younger, it is a different ball game now.
“With age come responsibilities and having to wake up early the next morning for filming or attending to other commitments is becoming more difficult when I am not getting sufficient rest,” said Erwin when met at the press conference of the upcoming Anugerah Skrin 2018 (ASK 2018) held at Alya in Bukit Kiara here, yesterday.
The 29-year-old Pulang star said that he would be lucky and thankful if he could go to bed slightly past midnight.
“On some days, I don’t get to sleep at all,” he said.
But that is in the past now that he has started practising yoga.
“Ever since I started yoga, I’ve achieved a more normal sleeping pattern,” said the artiste whose drama and films he starred in are nominated at ASK 2018.
