Resting Well, Well Rested

I must have had a hankering for some tasty sleep of my own because a short nap around 6:30 last night turned into not waking up again until morning. Sometimes we just need to sleep and our bodies have funny ways of telling us.

Do you sleep when you’re tired or do you lay the guilt on yourself, 20 mattresses thick, that sleep can wait when your to-do list is long? I’m working on more of the former, less of the latter (but this is obvious by my 13 hour siesta!).

Happy Tuesday friend!
