few woman get enough sleep.
add children... add a career.
no sleep some nights.
when i look back at the past twenty plus years, and...
..."knowing what i know now".
i should have sought more sleeping moments.
lack of sleep is a detriment to one's health.
it's essential for building the immune system and cell repair.
here are a few facts about sleeping.
it is definitely not a waste of time!
Missing even half an hour of sleep every night adds up to an impressive sleep debt of 182.5 hours per year. There’s no short-cut to paying of this debt, nor can you outrun it’s constant and grueling effects on your health. Next time you tell yourself that you can get by, stop and consider just how big your sleep debt is right now. And consider that the nights are dark for a reason, that your body sends you physical and emotional responses to tiredness for a reason. Maybe it’s time to listen to those messages and see just what you’re missing out on.
The good news is that increasing your sleep by as little as half an hour, or even 15 minutes, every night can immediately and drastically improve the way you feel and function. For most of us it’s not possible to drop everything and implement drastic change, but the benefits of sleep don’t have to be a case of ‘all or nothing’. Why not treat yourself to an extra half hour shut eye tonight and start to soak up the health rewards right away?
i remember my grandmother telling me. "Lynne, you must get your beauty sleep!"
i would giggle, thinking, it's just her creative way to get me to go to sleep,
but she was so very wise!
two sleep aids that i keep on the stand next to my bed are a glass of water,
and one of Maria's lavender linen pillows.
the experience of waking after a total rest is so amazing!
