Catching some Zzz's

Today’s Tip: Go to sleep!!

Recently I heard of new evidence that back in the day people used to go to sleep when the sun went down, sleep for 4 hours, get up and do things for a while, then go back to sleep for 4 hours. This makes sense when you think about all the people who wake up after 4 hours and can’t go back to sleep for ages – apparently they’re just not programmed to! Me, however, well I decided I would use the time in between sleeps to have a sleep.

I love sleeping. Sleeping and drinking water are my most important beauty secrets. Sleep is really important to ensure your brain is firing, you are happy, healthy, your metabolism is working and you are able to function correctly.

Today’s tip is to listen to your body clock, and go to sleep! Different people need different amounts of sleep a night. I need a lot. When your body clock tells you it’s time to wind down for the day, don’t fight it to get those extra chores in. Your body won’t thank you for it. Listen to it, wind down, relax, and go to sleep!

Your body will thank you.


PS: I realise if you have a baby or a small child, there’s not a lot you can do about whether or not they sleep, but this tip is mainly for those people who think “Oh I’ll just…” when they start to get tired. You know who you are.

    I was about to comment how hilarious I found this post in my current permanently sleep deprived state.
    But then I read your p.s.

      Hehe, had to put that in since it was specifically for the people who fight sleep – not those who have a little someone preventing it :P
