I find sleep to be the most important aspect of life. I never get enough. My husband and I often fall asleep in the middle of a conversation and wake up in the middle of a conversation. It is our only way to get through the day. I know this because I am the one who always does it.
I never get enough sleep because I get too caught up in everything and don’t really have any time to myself. I feel as if I have to do everything right or I’ll have nothing. I’m pretty much constantly doing things that are wrong. I never get enough time to myself.
The issue is that our brains are actually designed to shut down at night, because that’s what’s needed to rest and recuperate. However, the problem with our sleep habits is that we spend our entire day doing stuff that is detrimental to our health and wellness. We’re always sitting around and doing things that make us feel bad. No other job in life is as draining as work as being a stay at home mom.
I know this one is a bit personal, but I do know that I can’t do this.
No matter what you do, we all need to get enough rest. Our brains need to be at their peak when we’re young to function properly. That’s because we’re trying to make a lot of connections (and therefore have lots of ideas) at that time. And if we’re not doing that, we’re wasting our time.
The reason that I’m so passionate about sleep is because we actually need it to function. If we did not need the sleep, we would not be able to handle the stress of life. With that said, I do believe that our current state of sleep deprivation has caused us to be somewhat overworked and perhaps a bit less than healthy. Our brains are constantly processing large amounts of information and making new connections. This is why the work is so important.
Sleep deprivation causes people to become depressed and unable to focus on their daily activities. The problem may be caused by a person’s ability to focus while sleeping or by a person’s ability to stay awake. However, the problem does not necessarily mean that our current state is unhealthy.
As a test, I took a nap before getting going for a week. The results were very promising. I was able to rest my mind and my body (as well as my eyes) and not to have to worry about running out of energy for the day. This is a good reminder to be on top of your game and getting all the rest you need.
I am able to sleep well because I am aware of my own body and what it is doing. I don’t have an issue with stress or anxiety, just that I don’t know what my body is doing and whether it’s okay to do so. By being more aware of my own body, I have a better chance of finding out whether or not it is working for me.
I have a great example of this when I was traveling in Thailand. I was in a resort and had a day off that was supposed to be relaxing. During the day I was running around trying to find somewhere to eat, and I was just really tired. I was running around all day and had no idea of the things that were going on. I saw a big tree and it seemed like it was overgrown.
