ResT & RelaxatioN..Ahhh

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.
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

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.

    Ah to actually relax and not worry about anything. For me a hot bath, glass of wine, and soft jazz will do it.

    Enjoy your relaxation Angel, you deserve it.

    Rest and Relaxation…

    And that is precisely why I think that that may actually be the right approach, for at least part of this weekend. While it\’s important to get things done, being constantly worried and apprehensive won\’t help with anything.

    Angel,
    That picture you’ve got at the start of this posting is absolutely beautiful! It makes me want to find a hammock.

    In addition to a good night’s rest, studies show that an afternoon nap extends one’s life span. Here’s to naps! **raises glass**

    Unfortunately, this year Mr. AOW and I will not be enjoying a vacation, as is our wont Labor Day week. I’ll be posting the reason on Wednesday night. Ugh!

    Angel!! You’re talking to the “Queen of 4 Hours” (on a good night, MAYBE 6 hours)

    No wonder I’m in such a pitiful shape, both body an mind!

    I’d better go lie down!

    I’m with “Z”… (who can sleep at such an important and dangerous time for our nation?!) except I won’t touch the meds to sleep. I have seen too many friends off in the weeds with that. I sure have been on a sleepless binge for several weeks now, though… No fun when it comes a calling.

    But your post made me smile broadly… especially when you ended it with that freshly tracked snowfall scene. Very cool. :)

    THANKS, Angel.

    No matter how hard i try, i cannot get more than 7hrs of sleep in a stretch, i can however wake up and the go back to sleep later. Afternoons, around 3, that’s when i’m nodding off at work, yep sleeping on the job, it’s a struggle to stay awake then.

    So i take it Biden is pro-gun, but does he cling to his Bible as well?
