Dear Sleep…a love affair

She doth loveth sleep

Hi there! Remember when we were young, adults used to tell us to take afternoon naps or go to sleep early? Well, my mum urged me to take those naps all the time. But naughty little me wanted to play or do something more interesting other than sleep, so I sometimes fake it or simply resist it. Yup! You heard it right. Now don’t you look at me with contempt. We all did that once in our (errhm) not so distant past! Deep down, you reader can relate to this matter.

Fast forward to present and I’m all grown up, having a sweet, endless love affair with my bed (tsk!). Mum’s right after all. Yah know..that “mother’s knows best” old adage most of our mums used to threaten us with (wink-wink!). I can almost hear my mum saying “I told you so” right now. As adults, sleep became more of a luxury; especially for those people with erratic work schedules (special shoutout to those in the medical field).  Other than rest and relaxation it is vital for our health. According to NIH sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke yada yada..you know what I mean. 

I have this never ending love affair with my bed.

In conclusion, I want to tell SLEEP this: 

Dear Sleep, 

I’m sorry I hated you when I was a young kid. Right now I love you very much and I cherish every moment with you. 

XO,

CaRe
