Over the holidays, I experienced a huge case of insomnia. I would be tired, but when I laid down, I could not sleep, so up I would get. This went on for a few months. I discovered or recognized I was drinking too much caffeine and eating too many sweets too close to bedtime. I changed this around and began limiting my caffeine intake to before Noon and no more afternoon Monsters or coffee. That was the trick. Now I’m back on track.
Here’s a short little video to help you understand how important it is for the brain to get some sleep so it can reorganize all the day’s inputs. It really is important, not just for the body, but for the brain. It needs some “off” time to function properly during the day.
Here’s to a great night’s sleep. When it goes away, it can be a real drag.
Until next time…
