How Much Sleep Are You Getting? [POLL]
I think I know the answer. Not enough, correct? Some mornings it would be great to roll over and go back to sleep for an hour or two. That's what the weekend is for. I mostly sleep in until 5:30.
With all that's going on in our world, and family pulling you in different directions constantly, now more than ever sleep is so important. And not just quantity, but quality. I know sometimes it is not going to happen that you're getting the hours you need in the rack, and you can function. But you'd feel better, and get more accomplished with more sleep.
Does this from The National Sleep Foundation make sense? " While sleep requirements vary slightly from person to person, most healthy adults need between 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best. Children and teens need even more. And despite the notion that our sleep needs decrease with age, most older people still need at least 7 hours of sleep. Since older adults often have trouble sleeping this long at night, daytime naps can help fill in the gap."
Alright everybody. "Lights out". Let's get to sleep. Turn off the screens. Make sure the room is dark, and cool. And count your blessings as you're drifting off, it'll help. The stuff you're worrying about will seem smaller tomorrow with a good night's rest.
