This brings me to something I've realized recently: the true value of sleep. I think many Americans - particularly moms - believe that sleep is a luxury. We feel guilty if we get too much, you know, because we could have been really "productive" during that time. Well, with my broken back and darned lousy immune system, I understand that it's not a luxury. Sleep is a necessity that I need to make time for.
So, in the next couple of weeks, I'm working on a couple of things:
- Weaning myself from extraneous TV programs that just keep me up too late. Even with DVR, you have to figure out a time to watch it. But man, I really loves TV.
- Going to bed by 10:30 at least 5 nights per week. I think this is going to be really difficult for me. I don't mind "going to bed", but I usually read or now that I have a new laptop (thank you Targo!), work on interwebs-related things. You know what? I'm just going to have to do that from 9:30 to 10:30.
I'm sure there were more things, but I can't think of them right now.
Any ideas of how to implement this HUGE life change?
