Sleep Challenge

Saturday, February 28, 2009


I have posted a link to the sleep foundation below because it's so important to everyday health. You all know how much better you feel when you have enough sleep. I'm a full-time counselor for nursing students and I'm a writer, wife, and mom. If I don't get enough sleep I don't function to the best of my ability in any of these roles.

It seems that many are sleep deprived today and that's why I want to challenge you to study up on the importance of sleep and encourage you families to get enough rest.

Click on the link on this site and read up on sleep aware awareness. Then challenge youself and your family to get the right amount of sleep this week. Make it a game. Whoever comes closest to getting the necessary sleep hours in gets something special for the week, you decide what. It will be fun.

The time will be changing again soon and it can be difficult to make the adjustment. Remember, we are going to lose an hour but we get the extra daylight. This has always been a difficult leap for me and it's just one hour! So I'm going to pay attention to my sleep needs this coming week and I hope you will do the same.

I dare you to take the challenge too.

Well I have to say that I'm thrilled the Steelers won tonight. When you grow up close to Pittsburgh, Pa. it's impossible not to become a fan, and that part of your life just follows you around. I've been living in Cincinnati for 29 years and I still have that Terrible Towel connection to Pittsburgh. :)

Wasn't it an incredible game? A real fight to the finish. Both sides could have done without earning some of those penalties though.

I really liked the Budweiser commercials. Just love those BIG beautiful horses. I especially enjoyed the one where Ain't No Mountain High Enough was being played. So cute.

Now as I go back to the book I'm working on I can't help but wonder how writing a novel is like a football game. Train. Practice. Prepare. Play. And finish with everything you've got.
