8 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 6:47 am
Sunset: 6:31 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is World Sleep Day. This holiday celebrates the importance of sleep. It comes at a time of year when we are about to Spring forward one hour and loose an hour of sleep, as daylight savings time resumes on Sunday, March 13th.
A good night's sleep is as important to your health as what you eat. One in 15 Americans suffer from sleep apnea and more than 100 million people around the world are not getting enough sleep.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The two best physicians of them all -- Dr. Laughter and Dr. Sleep.
Gregory Dean Jr.
I really don’t have any problems sleeping. I get a good 8 hours of sleep on most nights and I manage a nap or two during the day. With Spring almost here I’m even looking forward to a few naps on the porch.
They say that as a rule of thumb, it takes about one day to adjust for each hour of time change. The hour we loose in Spring will come back in the fall, and I for one will be happy to see it come back.
Although no one likes to loose an hour of sleep, we’ll have an extra hour of daylight in the evenings to enjoy But remember that for just a short couple of weeks our mornings will be darker an hour longer too. Slowly but surely they’ll both be longer.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention today would have been my DDH’s 74th birthday had he lived. However he never saw a gray hair nor a wrinkle. He’ll remain forever young. Always loved, and deeply missed.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday !
