I used to sleep a lot especially when i was younger and depressed because i thought it eased the pain/torture..it definitely is an escape from all the noise and wahala going on around us. But in time, I started to really dive deep into sleep cycles.
We have been told that we are supposed to sleep for the average of about 8 hours and that is exactly about one third of the 24 hours.So let’s say
24-8 = 16
Hypothetically, we sleep and have 16 hours of the day left.We have to eat at least three times (so they said right i.e breakfast, lunch and dinner), let’s say that’s about 30 mins each per meal.(1 hr 30 mins)
We have work,children/family, Clean/laundry etc.We already have exhausted the daytime. In this millennium we press phones the remaining hours of the day.
When do we think, meet people, travel just to see how other cultures behave, communicate, think ? you know… (in my head right now : i’m thinking, is this just me or do people actually realize this and still don’t care?)
Anyway,if you were paying attention it means an average man/woman has 16 hours per day not 24 hours. This way you see time is way shorter than you were told.So how do we truly live with 2/3rd of our lives everyday and 1/3 we sleep that’s like half of our lives.
I truly believe that you could sleep 3 hours some days , 10 hours other days, 5 hours some other days and be extremely healthy! if not even better than a lot of people. (i know you might be thinking, how about work, no job will ever allow such nonsense).There are actually so many professions that allows for such freedom (Mostly Entrepreneurial) but understanding sleep is a huge part of understanding life itself.
Health is not determined by how many hours you sleep. Good health is determined by what you feed your body mind and soul. I believe that is why they say health is wealth.
Sleep is very vital in every sense of the word. We heal the body when we sleep, we relax the mind when we sleep and our emotional/spiritual body re-adjusts the energy as well to fit into the vibration. -We are magnetic. Information is a very vital tool and what you should know is no one should determine how many hours you should sleep,eat or do anything.Listen to your body. It always tells.
Some people say they can not eat meals at midnight or early morning. That’s understandable if it’s their preference not because someone else says it should be so. That’s so wrong and it’s just same way the perception behind sleep is based on what ‘they’ said.
Sleep adequately. Understand your body. Observe whether you are a morning or night person and work with that. You don’t have to work using someone else’s time both literally and psychologically. Understanding your sleep cycle can literally change your mindset, attitude and even creativity.
Here is today’s WOW (Word of Wisdom) for you:
DO NOT BE A SLEEPER. 🙏🙏
A sleeper is one who just WATCHES every opportunity pass him/her by because they are not paying attention to their habits. You can sleep a lot and still not be a sleeper. Catch the drift?
I repeat : DO NOT BE A SLEEPER!
SLEEP ON THAT…
