There are some nights that we just get that magical good night of sleep. Those seem to be few and far between. Those are the mornings that as our alarm goes off we can seem to jump out of bed and face the day.
We are living in a weird time. The year 2020 has included many changes. A lot, not all of us, have gained a bit of weight. So many that it has a name. The Quarinteen15. Well guess what? We are over that and on our way to getting healthy again.
Have you had a little harder time sleeping through the pandemic? If you have well just know that you are not alone. We have been finding ourselves worrying a lot more. Less sleep, though, really does us no good. In fact it makes it easier for us to get sick. Our immune system starts to get compromised.
Sleep seems to be one of the hardest things to come by these days. I mean I feel that the older I get the harder it is to actually get the recommended sleep that you need. You hear all the time that 8 hours is what you need. Then you see other findings that if you get six hours you are golden.
Yes, I know people do call in sick when they really are not. I am not naive enough to think it doesn't happen. It may be even easier to do these days as you are working from home.It's easy to send a text saying I am just not feeling well today.
You always have good intentions. I will go to sleep at a decent time tonight. I will get up on time and maybe even get a little exercise in. It used to be that you would think "hey getting to work only takes me ten minutes" Heck pretty much everything is ten minutes away here in Amarillo.
All this time that you have been home and working have you heard of the Quarantine 15? They compare it to the Freshman 15. You know where you gain 15 pounds when you start college because of all the freedom to eat what you want and when.
