“Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care”

by Lisa Rosen on April 4, 2011

Last Friday night I slept for eleven and a half hours.  Straight through.  Deep, blissful slumber.

Now, I’m not your average sleep-deprived American.  I am a little obsessive in my sleep habits, and I get at least 7.5-8 hours of uninterrupted, sound sleep every night.  Honestly, if I had my druthers, it’d be closer to nine hours, but that’s just hard to make happen (especially during the school year).

Even so, I couldn’t believe the difference those 11.5 hours made.  I woke up feeling like a new woman–energized, refreshed, optimistic.  Happy.  I even ran a little faster.

I highly recommend a long, restorative sleep.  Go ahead and schedule one into the weekend.  It’s worth the effort.
