Simply Living: Day 18: Simply Tired
It's a good way to live. I am not complaining. At all.
But tonight is the night that my body reminds me that if there is one way I am still not taking care of it, its the area of enough sleep. Truly healthy people need 7-9 hours of sleep a night --don't say not me, yes you. You need at least 7 hours of sleep. You may be regularly getting less, like I am, but it's showing itself in other little ways in your mental and physical performance for every hour you short yourself. I tend to fall in the seven hours is enough range. But I haven't been getting that lately, either.
I could blame many things: busy schedule, getting some Hunky time after the kids are in bed, reading in bed (hey it's not sleep but it's like sleep, right? WRONG), finishing up house work, writing a 31 days blog..all of these things are culprits and none of them are evil, but they are robbing me of enjoyment during my day because I am combating the lingering effects of sleep shortage now several days running.
So tonight, it's 10:04 and after a fairly (oh let's face it, utterly) uninteresting blog I am off to do the best thing I could possibly do for myself tonight.
Tomorrow may be simply wonderful again. I want to be fully awake for it.
