Oh friends! I just had a great bloggy break!!! One of the things I did a whole bunch of (besides spring cleaning) - is sleep! lol!!! Oh ya – I’m talking about sleeping in - power naps – and I even went to bed crazy early the one night – it felt SO good! I was LONG overdue for some good long nights of sleep. I’ve been cutting myself short lately and I came to the point where I found myself saying everyday…
“I am SOOOOOO tired.”
Are those words that you think quite commonly? I bet you do – I just know I can’t be alone in this!
I read a crazy statistic that said “In 1850 Americans crawled into bed at a reasonable hour and slept an average of 9.5 hours a night. By 1910, half the country had electricity, but our recent ancestors were still breathing evenly with their eyes closed, on average, nine hours a night. By 1950 an average night’s sleep decreased to 8 hours. And by 2008, Americans, on average, go 6.5 hours of sleep a night.” - Kathy Peel – America’s Family Manager
We are a sleep deprived nation.
I would go out on a limb and say that it is affecting our marriages, parenting and homemaking negatively.
So what do we do?
