WORLD SLEEP DAY

TL WORLD SLEEP DAY (2ND FRIDAY IN MARCH)

Here’s the slogan for today:

WHEN SLEEP IS SOUND, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS ABOUND!!!

3-13 WHILE THE WORLD IS ASLEEP

I sense a pattern emerging, don’t you?  Daylight Savings time seriously diminishes my ability to stay awake.  It really does take at least a month for me to become fully functional again.  You’ve probably read the same articles I have about how they are going to stop this nonsense with the changing back and forth, but will things ever really change – or rather STOP changing?  Who knows???

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.  – Irish Proverb

It occurred to me today that while I am sleeping, God is wide awake.  What a reassuring thought that I don’t have to worry about anything while I’m in dreamland.  Even when I’m in a nightmare, I know God will not let it get too bad.  He will see to it that I wake up in time.  The big ugly dragon won’t eat me!

Are you a sound sleeper?  I sure am – when I’m asleep, nothing wakes me up!  If you can get a sound 8-9 hours of sleep each night, you should be set for any challenge the next day has to offer.

 O bed! O bed! delicious bed!
That heaven upon earth to the weary head.
– Thomas Hood, Miss Kilmansegg — Her Dream

How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t need to sleep.  I can sleep when I’m dead.”  Well, most of the time, those are the folks who have high blood pressure and drink way too much caffeine.  Look, to get a good night’s sleep is not a waste of time, rather, a gift you give yourself.

WHEN YOU JUST WANT TO GO TO SLEEP

There’s a need for rest.  It’s the way human bodies are made – we eat, we move and then we rest.  If you try to fight sleep for long, you will eventually crash and burn – it’s as simple as that.  Don’t wait until you are tired to go to bed – just GO and sleep your 8 hours and start again the next day.

I know that God will be with me in all circumstances, but there’s just something about being well rested that makes my mind and body so much happier and I want to be my best every day, don’t you?  So…  let’s get some SLEEP, okay???  🙂
