If someone would ask me, what is one thing you want right now? Without a second thought I would exclaim, SLEEP!
On this 12th Day of BlogChatter A2Z challenge, I want to address something which is quite an essential way to a healthy living yet ignores these days. #26days26ways
With the binge writing, balancing with household chores, dealing with a toddler, completing my desk assignments, my sleep cycles have gone for a toss and I am sure for you all as well.
I wonder how are those managing who are working full time? Yet writing such amazing and creative blogs and trying to read many of them, appreciating them and even sharing it further.
It is said that a capacity of Human Body can be gauged best under stress, the willingness, the love towards the work makes you forget every pain, you are ready to sacrifice your sleep and are ok roaming around with that sleepy potato face whole day.
Jokes apart, lack of sleep can result in unlimited stress, irritation, and varied mood swings ultimately hampering your productivity in each and every task you perform throughout your day.
A body needs repairing and maintenance too. The sleeping mode is the best way to rejuvenate ourselves. With me the problem is even when I try to sleep my mind is awake and kicking me with words, that time I feel I can even write a book, the struggle of remembering the ideas and thought plot for the next day and next write up and the need for sleep gives me hard time falling asleep.
To make things little easy for me, I started scheduling my posts well in advance and posting my link at midnight and straight away go to sleep, next morning when I am done with my morning chores and when Mr.Nair and Junior are off to work and school respectively is the time I give to write my blog and read other blogs.
I try to take out maximum output in these 6 hours till the time my daughter is back from her school after that its only me and her and little bit of making and replying to comments. Before going to sleep I give some time to my blog to check my next posting and read some more blogs as Mr. Nair is there for the baby.
This way I tried to get some space and sleep from last two days otherwise at the beginning of this challenge I was just writing and reading continuously which left me exhausted by the end of the day.
Apart from our little blogging world, there exists a world which is even worse. In present scenario sleeping late has become so common, there was a time when staying awake till 12 was like a heinous crime, now I see people leisurely enjoying their time sitting and reading some books, watching web series, checking out something on their mobile phones and next day rushing back to work.
Lack of sleep can:
- Effect our mental abilities and emotional state
- Cause dullness and lethargy
- Can contribute to weight gain by making you feel too tired to even exercise.
- You feel exhausted the whole day and don’t feel fresh
- Effects our ability to concentrate and memorize things
There are many negative impacts of disturbed sleeping patterns. In this world of technological friendly human approach, we have become so mechanical that we tend to ignore our body, mind, and soul altogether.
It is only when some chronic medical emergency hit us we memorize all the leniency we showed towards managing our body.
Please take care, sleep well, stay fresh and healthy. The world can wait but health can’t. Jaan hai to Jahan hai:)
Much love and gratitude
