Guidepost # 7 is Rest and Play
Did you find time to play last week?
This week I want to try to rest!
You probably know how you feel when you don’t get enough sleep- but how do you feel when you do? How great do you feel when you actually get a good night’s rest? Contrast that with the long term health effects of too little sleep- some consequences are increased risk for diabetes, depression, weight gain, and heart disease.
Most of us miss sleep becasue we’re just so busy. There’s always another task to complete. Social media and phones in bed also keep us up later than we ever mean to be.
I don’t have great advice here. I’m struggling myself! But tonight let’s see if putting down the phone and the to do list is worth getting a full night’s sleep and feeling great tomorrow.
