Sleep Challenge


I have posted a link to the sleep foundation below because it's so important to everyday health. You all know how much better you feel when you have enough sleep. I'm a full-time counselor for nursing students and I'm a writer, wife, and mom. If I don't get enough sleep I don't function to the best of my ability in any of these roles.

It seems that many are sleep deprived today and that's why I want to challenge you to study up on the importance of sleep and encourage you families to get enough rest.

Click on the link on this site and read up on sleep aware awareness. Then challenge youself and your family to get the right amount of sleep this week. Make it a game. Whoever comes closest to getting the necessary sleep hours in gets something special for the week, you decide what. It will be fun.

The time will be changing again soon and it can be difficult to make the adjustment. Remember, we are going to lose an hour but we get the extra daylight. This has always been a difficult leap for me and it's just one hour! So I'm going to pay attention to my sleep needs this coming week and I hope you will do the same.

I dare you to take the challenge too.


  1. just as i am staying up way past my bedtime! : )
    you remind me of my desire to get my sleep back on track...especially as a lenten practice!
    so thanks for the nudge in the pants to go to bed! just wish i hadn't had that latte at 8pm!!!

  2. LOL
    That is so much easier said than done!!! :)

    My kids usually get enough sleep- their parents, almost never!!!

    Oh, and you should consider moving to Arizona- we don't do the stupid time-change thing! :)

  3. I have a hard time adjusting to DST.
