How often have you heard the expression, “I need to get my beauty sleep”? That’s no joke! To be truly healthy – mentally and physically – we need regular, deep sleep and we never truly “make up for” the sleep that we’ve lost.

Just like children get cranky when they are tired, I notice how bleak life seems when I’m suffering from sleep deprivation. Everything takes more time to accomplish and life loses its lustre. I look at everything around me and just think, “Yuck”!

Go forth and sleep more this week!!
