Sleep is one of those things that you don’t notice until you don’t get enough. Well, today was one of those days where I noticed it. Due to a small family emergency, I had to be up early this morning. I hadn’t planned this, so I ended up getting only six hours of sleep. Days like these remind me how valuable sleep is. When I get enough sleep, I feel like anything is possible. I’m happier, less stressed, and more creative.
When I don’t get enough sleep, it feels like everything is a struggle. Even doing my day to day work takes tons of willpower. And writing well? Forget it. So if this post is a bit incoherent and typo-ridden, I apologize. Take it as an illustration that most of us could stand to get more sleep. Days like this remind me what a false economy it is to trade sleep for extra work time.
Get enough sleep, folks. It will make all the difference.
With that said, I’m going to go rest. I’ll be back tomorrow, hopefully better rested and more composed.
