Did you know...

that not getting enough sleep is linked with:
  • Increase in body mass index – a greater likelihood of obesity due to an increased appetite caused by sleep deprivation?
  • Increased risk of diabetes and heart problems?

I've always thought I needed to get at least 8 hours of sleep every night. I've been struggling to get those 8 hours of sleep for some time now. I try but I seem to always fall short an hour. So I decided to do some research and I found out it's 7 to 9 hours of sleep that is best for an adult to get each night. What a relief one less thing to stress about. I'm A.O.K. on the sleeping.

  5. I can so tell the difference in my patience leve when I have had a good night's sleep versus the alternative.

  6. I have had so many problems sleeping lately! I often end up taking benadryl to sleep! If you haven't yet, Please Follow back Parga's Junkyard Blogand on facebook as well as on my new networking site Like it Ladder Thanks!
