Importance Of SLEEP

Did you ever feel like you didn’t get enough sleep the night before? If so, how was your mood? I can tell you first hand, mine is never good when I’m sleep deprived. Nothing wonderful can come from a person who missed a good nights sleep. Maybe this is the reason for drivers rage? Perhaps the reason for short tempered people? I’m telling you I think sleep is the cause for many illnesses, particularly emotional and psychological (Physically too)!  If someone lacks sleep on a consistent basis their bound to have health problems sooner or later. Sleep is extremely important to my health and happiness. If I lack sleep….. believe me I’m not happy (and my loved ones know it)!  My mood is effected, my thinking is cloudy and I feel down right sluggish and fatigued. I have a short attention span as it is and being sleep deprived does not help the level of patience one needs to stayed focused.

It amazes me how some people can function on six or less hours of sleep! I need at least eight but preferably ten to feel alive and motivated.

Here is why I believe sleep is important……

1) It helps me to think before I react, especially stressful situations.

2) I wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start my day.

3) I’m in a happy mood when I get the amount of sleep I need to function (This is beneficial for all my loved ones, haha).

4) The right amount of sleep helps my body function the way it should…. digestive, nervous system.

5) Getting enough sleep also helps heal my body of injury or infection!

I look at sleep like it’s an absolute necessity, which makes sleep a priority on my list. More sleep = less stress and a happy mind and body!

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
