The Importance of Sleep

           There is deep importance within a good night’s rest. This importance gets overlooked by a significant amount of people and thus we have people falling asleep during the day or even worse, experiencing side effect health related issues. There are overwhelming amounts of reasons as to why people don’t get enough sleep, but in the end you are doing yourself a disservice. 

            The human body is a lot like a battery, you need to charge it from time to time in order for it to function as it should. You can’t just do everything and get no rest while assuming that everything is going to be ok and that you will not soon enough crash. 

             People have taken measures to ensure that this phenomenon continues, hell, it’s a fantastic marketing strategy, if you can’t get people to have good rest then just feed their bad habit by providing them with products that will ensure that they stay awake for the whole day, hence the rise of energy drinks, Starbucks, and recently 5 hour energy drink.

            The whole marketing strategy there is simple, you are being unhealthy, don’t stop being unhealthy, no need to while we are around, and Oh yeah, you’ll probably have pretty ridiculous side effects form all our products down the line, but you don’t care, do you? The mentality here is simple, we are a people that care about the now, about what I can get done now, and how that is going to benefit our day.

             From business men and women struggling to meet deadlines to college kids studying for exams, this problem is rampant. But do not fear, for there is a cure for this problem, a cure that was invited by our predecessors, but has been ignored by our general populous, now being brought back by the few, in order for the many to get better.

             Scheduling. I don’t mean live a predetermined life but I do mean creating a to-do list of things that must be accomplished, be it that day, that week or that month, and do it. Organization is the key to success, no one has ever reached success without it. It’s a guiding hand, it is the tool that will allow you to get your work done when it needs to be done and go ahead and get some sleep in the process. 

             By doing this you will not only live a healthier life but you also will be better rested, have better moods, your relationships will become better and grow better, and you will begin to feel a lot happier than before. You also will come to realize how much time you used to waste doing nothing, and therefore go on to truly enjoy your day to its full extent.

         Hope your week has been a good one so far,

  Love from your humble blogger,
