Without even consciously trying, I've made a wonderful discovery.
Here it is: Getting eight hours of sleep helps me feel great, totally refreshed, and filled with energy.
It helps me function so much better.
Who knew that living on far less sleep could make such a dramatic difference in one's life?
There were years when getting sufficient sleep was impossible and those of you who have children know which years those are!
Countless nights for what seemed like an eternity, I was up with babies----feeding them, burping them, rocking them, cuddling them, taking care of them when they were sick, and just loving them.
There were more sleepless nights comforting foster children, most of them teenagers, who needed time away from their own families for a variety of reasons.
But at this stage of life, at last it is possible to get needed and well deserved shut-eye.
Scrunching under the soft, warm covers at the end of a busy day and evening has got to be one of the best parts of living.
HOW MUCH SLEEP DO YOU REQUIRE?
