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.
