I thought that I should dedicate today’s post to my one true love, sleep.
I love to sleep, sleeping and having slept. I love the word in all its different variations and I love the act even more. I often hear “you can sleep when you’re dead” from people, which I disagree with. The afterlife has its own agendas. Imagine working hard, skipping sleep all your life and then die and get to the afterlife and you’re told “you should have slept when you’re alive”. I don’t want to die with regrets so I will sleep as much as I can now, whilst I’m still able to. I should enjoy all the gifts of sleep and being tired enough to pass out as soon as my head touches the pillow.
Sleep is not only amazing because I said so, but it has its benefits :
- Sleep improves memory.
- Sleep makes you live longer – study in 2010 showed that women who slept less than 5 hours died at a younger age than those who slept for more than 6 hours per night.
- Sleep helps with creativity.
- Sleep lowers stress.
Sleep does so much for you. So go ahead, get in bed, read some of my blog posts, close your eyes and fall asleep.
Thank you for reading.
