Good Night Sweet Dreams Take Care #gnsdtc

Night is a special time. A time to recharge (not just) your (phone) batteries. A time to reflect on the day that has gone by. And a time to let go of the past and get ready for the future. If you have read this post before, here’s wishing you a good night’s sleep. If you haven’t or if you wish to remind yourself of what’s important, read on. And then read no more, until it’s dawn. 24 hours every day, that is what we get, and sometimes 24 hours seem woefully inadequate. Borrowing a few hours of time from your sleep time feels like the right thing to do, the smart thing to do. Until it doesn’t. Bad sleep habits become life-long bad habits. Here are some of the things that you should do: If it’s bed time already, do not read this post, go sleep. If it’s bed time and you do read this post, do not read or listen to or watch anything after this post. Lock your phone and close your eyes. Don’t steal time from sleep. If you think you can make do with less sleep, you might be wrong.

Benefits of a Sleep Schedule

 

Having a sleep cycle works out these issues. You will have a natural routine and your stress of falling asleep at night will turn into an anticipated ritual where you fall asleep quickly and easily. You’ll also have the benefit of your body being ready to wake up at the same time every day, so your body won’t fight you; it knows the routine.

These benefits also extend to when you’re awake during the day. Since your body anticipates the consistency of your sleep schedule, you won’t be tired or distracted during the day. Your body will know when it gets to sleep and when it needs to stay awake.

Too many people followed strict bedtime rules as children but then gave them up as adults. Turns out, it’s just as important now to follow a strict pattern of waking up and going to bed. Try it for a few days and get on a constant sleep schedule; your body will thank you.
