Did you know that when you don’t give yourself some R&R or just relaaaax, you are putting yourself at risk for illness as well as other side effects?lazyy154.gif

Much as we’d like to deny it..(or at least some of us) we mortals needs approximately 7-8 hours of sleep each night to restore our stunning little bodies with the energy they require to handle all of the demands of living day to day.

When we don’t get enough rest, we have difficulty concentrating, thinking clearly, and remembering things.
Trust me. This I know first hand. Ha. chillinani-ddy.gif

Now where was I……….

Yes yes yes….about the moodiness quotient……..
A shortage of good ole rest and relaxation affects your mood. And..er…it aint good.

Research has shown that when we miss out on good nights rest, our personality is affected.
Wer’e irritable, grouchy, crabby….Should I go on?

Namely..we aint too much fun to be around.

Isn’t that reason enough to take a break, unwind, relax and loosen up?
Um…you may want to ask your loved ones or co workers bout that one. heh.

There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.

The mark of a successful man is one that has spent an entire day on the bank of a river without feeling guilty about it.

The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.
Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.

    All I can say is Men have a biological need to spend time on a regular basis Thinking of Nothing and Doing Nothing.

    Women have the hardest time understanding this basic need of their loved one.

    Enjoy your break – Angel-
    It is always good to give a roiled mind a rest. The body does need rest as well …

    It’s bitter cold outside and I’m relaxing in my warm bathrobe with a hot cup of coffee-heaven!

    “The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it”

    So true. And, when you need something done, get the busiest person around to do it. The rest of them are just, well, resting.

    Have a great weekend.

    By the way, the Super Bowl was spectacular. I have watched the game twice, and it never gets old. Eli did his thing.

    Always hoping you are taking good care of yourself, Angel . . . . Good on you!

    You are so right. We need rest each night and we also need a rest from the daily routines.

    We just took a much needed, long overdue vacation, a real vacation. It was wonderful. Fantastic food, fantastic sleep each night, warm weather, seeing all the sights, being away from the responsibilities of work and home.
