THERE is a saying that no one can cheat nature. You will definitely pay for it. That is why no matter how busy you may be as Homemakers, you should create time to rest. Always have it in mind that if you are not there, things will still work out. Your children will grow up and succeed you. Your husband will re-marry to keep body and soul together. If you still want to be relevant to yourself first, your family and the society, do not joke with your sleep, especially at night. Every night should not be for night vigil.
God – the Lord of the universe – created everything in six days and rested on the seventh day. As God, He probably didn’t need to rest. But He took rest, and in doing so He gave us a very clear example that we need rest, too. It has been researched that getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. Research confirms it that sleep deficiency may raise your risk of some chronic health problems and may also affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.
So, as Homemakers, no matter how busy you are, consciously take sleep as serious business you must observe well. Do not make your bedroom an extention of your living room. Watching movies can assist you to sleep or reading a book but consciously make your bedroom a place to enjoy your sleep and not an extention of your business. If rest is so hard to find especially when you are a busy person, find it by making it a priority. When you set aside time for it. It will work for you.
