 Curl up with your pillows and your blankie. Close your eyes and dream so soft and hazy. – Pooh

images2When Michaela was little, I read Winnie the Pooh stories to her before bed. Sometimes she’d fall asleep while I read.

And when she slept she looked so angelic.

Sleep is important for all ages. So much happens while we sleep.

Sleeping promotes a healthy immune system.

Tissue growth and repair occur.

And levels of the hormone cortisol dip at bed time and promote alertness in the morning.

Years ago when I decided to embrace a healthier life-style, I found eating right and exercise alone made little difference in my efforts to get fit. It wasn’t until I made up my mind to get a good eight hours of sleep each night, that I began to see results.

One-third of our lives are spent sleeping, and sleep plays a direct role in how successful the other two-thirds of our lives can be.

So curl up with your pillows and your blankie. Close your eyes and dream so soft and hazy.
