Sleeping well, and enough, is important. There’s plenty of research to back that up, and I believe it’s one of those universal truths. How much sleep you need, what constitutes as “sleeping well”, is individual though. We touched that subject last night, when I had dinner with a good friend and his new girlfriend. She’s like me, she sees sleep as something that steals your time, your opportunities, your life. Which is obviously not the case, said life would be flatlining in every possible way up until the end if we didn’t sleep.

I’ve been struggling with sleep all my life. I don’t need much to feel good and rested, but with age I’ve come to realize that I always need a touch more than I think. It adds up, the neglected hours of sleep. Dampens the spirit.

I hope you slept well, and that you’ll sleep tight tonight. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
