Once again Pinterest Healthfest, a Friday feature, appears on Saturday. Once again, it was delayed so I could get a good night's sleep. My goal was a success. I went to bed at 10:00 last night and spent very little time on the computer, but I slept well. I did wake up several times during the night, but I was able to turn over and not get out of bed until 7:30 am. A complete success!
Until the official dawn of middle age in my early fifties I was a great sleeper. After that I became very well acquainted with three o'clock in the morning, and I didn't enjoy it. I was grateful to have avoided hot flashes, but sleeplessness was my particular symptom. Gradually several years ago I noted that I was spending less time between two a.m. and five a.m. at the computer or tossing on the couch, but the days when I could go to bed at night and wake up in the morning were gone. I am so grateful for a night with only one quick trip to the bathroom. I am working diligently to get at least six hours sleep and generally am succeeding.
When I think about feeling healthy I think about getting enough sleep. Is this something that's an issue for others in Buttercupland?
I'm having a totally relaxed day today, with no commitments. I am hoping to walk to Michael's and Whole Foods for a little healthy shopping and later do some blog visiting. The sun is shining brightly and it's a great day to be outside. Wishing you a bright and sunny Saturday and sweet dreams tonight!
