There is now scientific evidence that proves it. When you don't sleep well, you struggle to make sound decisions. Any new mom could tell you that. I remember the time I thought it would be a good idea to eat a sandwich while nursing. Let's just say the dog and the living room floor ended up with most of the food.
The best defense against illness, weight gain and doing something completely stupid is getting enough sleep.
I hope to give myself the gift of eight glorious hours tonight. What will you do for yourself today?
