Note to self: Get some rest

"Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop." ~Ovid

Tonight I am going to be in bed by 11 p.m. I find that I haven't been sleeping well lately... or haven't been able to convince myself that it's bedtime. My relationship with sleeping has always been a bit shaky. Sometimes (a lot of times) it seems that there is too much to do or too much happening for sleep to take place.

I need to go to bed earlier. This is difficult for me because I find that I do my best work at night. Whatever I'm working on tends to come out better at night. Makes more sense... flows freely as it should. I'm a fairly early riser though... staying up late + getting up early does not equal a sufficient amount of time spent sleeping. 

This is why I like naps. I find that our lives today are not made for having naps and that's a sad thing. I need to make time for naps. There are studies about the optimal amount of time for naps as well as the amount of hours of sleep one should be getting. I'm not getting nearly enough.

I should go to bed now. Are you getting enough rest?

peace,
Ren
