Learning about using time.sleep() to make your program wait

Use 'import time' to import time function. Then when u need to use it use the line 'time.sleep()' to make the program to wait for specific amount of time. For example:
import time
print("Make sure that you add a number of seconds to make it actually wait!")


Time.sleep is good, but it is bad to use in any web application, since it freezes the entire application instead of a single task. asyncio.sleep pauses a single task only, making it useful (on certain occasions) in web applications.


I should need this app to control my sleep. Managing your sleep could improve our productivity. For instance, for me is a must to sleep 8 hours per night. If not, I feel dopey even after one espresso. So, sleep is a good ingredient for a healthy brain, first of all. Unfortunately, in the past few weeks, it wasn't possible at all. When I went to Florida for a new project with my Girls from GoIT, I lived in a hotel room with one girl. She snored terribly! I couldn't support her snore at all! My mom warned me about that and prepared me some two snore devices from https://www.chron.com/market/article/best-anti-snoring-devices-16048031.php I was kidding when I took them. I could not predict such things, but she did. My mom is the best!
