I love my sleep!

Often times we think we’re sleeping but our minds seem to wonder everywhere. “Did I lock the door?”, “Remember to pick up the dry cleaning”, “Email that letter before the boss finds out”… could just be some of the things we think about just before we put our head on the pillow. As a result we wake up feeling like we didn’t sleep a wink. How many of us feel this way, say I?!!!

How many of us crave for a good nights’ sleep? Do we really get quality in our sleep? Quality sleep means having sufficient duration and depth of rest that results in us feeling awake and refreshed throughout the day. This is so important because for me I’m on my feet all day. When I’m not meeting clients, I’m juggling the kids activities and chasing my 11-month old up the stairs. Momma needs energy! 

When our body is at rest, all our cells are renewed and recharged,  repairing work to injuries and illnesses take place; our brain activities that control emotions, decision-making processes, and social interaction shuts down, allowing us to maintain optimal emotional and social functioning when we are awake. You know that our sleep also strengthens the presence of our mind and consciousness, makes us feel more energized and physically more alert. It also enhances our memory and learning capacity; reduces stress… (we can all use that!), tension and anxiety.

Lucky for me I have a new sleeping partner. Haaa…. don’t get me wrong. I like the old man just the same! Thanks to the Bio Velocity Sleep Mate, I now have a more rested sleep. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first. I’ve been paying a visit to the massage parlour more frequently to relief my stiff neck. I tried it for 2 days and I am happy to say that I wake up feeling very fresh. Its like I slept for 10 solid hours. Bear in mind that I still do night feeds. My neck feels much better…too bad for Thai Odyssey though! haaahaaa…

Lets face it, we live such hectic lives either by choice or just because we have to survive. How can we possibly get through the day if we don’t have enough energy? We all need to start the day right!
