Sleep Guilt

I am often ready to sleep at a reasonable hour, but I hold myself awake because I think that if I let myself go to sleep early (when I'm tired), then I will not be accomplishing all that I can be...And that I will be 'lazy.'

I've always loved sleep. Sleeping is one of my favorite things to do. It's peaceful, quiet, and perfect in every way. I always feel better in the morning when I've had a really good sleep, and the duration matters too.

I think I might be at a turning point. I keep coming back to this same thing: to sleep, or not to sleep? If I sleep, I will feel so good waking up in the morning. If I stay awake, I will feel like I've really had a full day, but I will go to bed exhausted and I will wake up cranky. What gives?

It's clear to me what I need to do. I suppose I just needed to write it out and see it in front of my eyes.

Sleep well!

  1. If you fall asleep at a reasonable hour, you wake up more refreshed and are able to get more done in the day and by the time the reasonable hour comes around again you feel fulfilled and get another night of great sleep. Never feel guilty for doing something that you have to.

    1. Thank you, Danny. You're right that I should never feel guilty for something that's human necessity. I never looked at it like that before.
