Earlier this week I struggled with calming my mind and falling asleep. So I headed to the couch to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie, which, in the moment, felt like a luxurious way to spend my time. Needless to say, I was tired the next day. I had little if any patience with my children while getting everyone ready for school. By the afternoon, I was done. Unfortunately, I do not have a substitute mother that can be called in when I’m tired or don’t feel like adulting, so I had to make due while my energy tanks were empty. All of this could have been avoided if I just would have tried a little harder to calm my mind and get to bed at a more reasonable time than 1:30am. I know, I should know better. And you should, too. Here are some reminders on why sleep is so important and a few tips to improve your sleep.
