I love my sleep. I usually sleep very well. I fact it’s 9 pm and I am writing this from the bed. To bed at 9 and up at 5 is my routine.
Last night I did not sleep well. An unusual occurrence. Crowding in the bed seemed to be the issue. King size bed plus two grown men and 4 little dogs ( the big girl Gilda has her own bed beside ours, she’s the smart one ). For some reason last night they, especially Virgil, wanted to be where I was. It made for a restless night.
Therefore today has been a bit “off”. I think the lack of good sleep has affected me more than I am willing to admit. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good day…..but I was not quite myself.
I value my sleep. I feel it adds not only to my bodily health, but to my emotional, psychological and mental health. So here’s to a good nights sleep tonight, not only for me but for you as well.
UPDATE: It’s 6 am and I had a great nights sleep! Woo hoo! Wishing you a great day ahead! What amount of sleep do you need? What do you do to get it? How does your sleep affect your health?
