Food for Thought - The Gift of Sleep

It's winter right now.  It's chilly and dark outside. Work?  Forget that!  All I want to do is curl up and take a nap.

But, instead of fighting the season, how much better it would be to embrace winter's gift and slow down - maybe even take that nap.

Winter gives us the gift of sleep.  The gardens are asleep, waiting for spring.  The cats and dogs nap more.  Even the horses in the fields have slowed their pace.

Ah, sleep.  Delicious sleep.  Snuggling down and snoozing off.

Why not take a cue from Mother Nature and go with the flow?

Winter's gift of sleep helps us slow down, rest and become refreshed.

So relax and keep warm this winter as you dream about the coming spring.

You'll be healthier when you work with nature instead of against her. Enjoy winter's gift of sleep.
