Four Months of Sleep
I heard it on the radio, and had to give it some thought.
They stated that we spend four months of each year asleep in bed.
It seemed like too much to me, but if you get eight hours of sleep each night, then it does work out to the four months.
Four months of doing nothing - not getting anything accomplished.
I know recharging is necessary, and don't get me wrong, I love to sleep, but it seems like such a large amount of wasted time when it's all put together like that.
Glad we spread it out, and also glad we have a comfortable bed to sleep in.
Sometimes there are nights when those hours just fly by, and another day starts before you know it.
And then there are those nights that are spent tossing and turning - those hours just drag.
Forget about the nights that are full of dreams - sometimes so many of them that it feels like you never even went to sleep.
Those are the nights that I wish we had a Memory foam mattress.
We have used the memory foam pillows, and I can just imagine what a treat it must be for the whole body to sleep in such comfort.
Perhaps some day will will try one of those foam toppers that goes over the mattress - it may be just what we need for those restless nights - all four months of them.
