Sleep, deep sleep

So many of us think sleep is almost dispensable. So many of us think that being able to get by with little sleep is a badge of toughness.

I know people who compromise on sleep so they get their daily workouts- till very recently, I was one of that tribe too. I know people who have almost trained their body to believe it needs less sleep than it does.

And yet, the body needs rest. It needs sleep; uninterrupted, quality sleep. Compromise on your passion, but don't cut back on sleep. Someone I know recently died of lack of sleep.

Natasha - Important topic!!! Research shows that fatigued driving is a greater cause of traffic accidents than drink driving or even using mobiles when driving.

I can't function if I get too tired.

Ugh! I love to sleep but once or twice a week ... sleep eludes me until the wee morning hours. I think at my age they call it *menopause*. I always get a chuckle when I look at that word ... * men o pause *

It really bothers me when I hear of junior doctors being scheduled to work up to 30 hours without sleep in hospitals. The mistakes that are being made must be dreadful, yet no one seems willing to take on those who do the schedules. Some people seem to think sleep is optional, I know I need it!

A Sleep Comfort bed...love it!!
