Today is the start of a weekly tradition called “Friday Faves.” This is where I will write about one of my favourite things that make me happy and hopefully make you happy as well. Since Friday is my favourite day of the week I usually start thinking about what my weekend plans will be. This involves thinking of the perfect outfit to wear out, how to do my hair and what place l will be getting my dance on. Throughout the day, I am counting down the minutes until I can leave work and run as fast as I can from the office. I then started thinking what my favourite part of the weekend is and then it hit me. The best part of the weekend is… sleeping in without using an alarm clock. I believe this is when you get to sleep in as long as you can until your body naturally wakes up. It doesn’t matter how early or late you go to bed the night before, there are two whole days where your body can be in complete bliss.
Starting tomorrow I want all alarm clocks hidden and iPhones under your pillow because it’s time to give your body what it needs by sleeping in. We live such busy hectic lives and we don’t realize how hard it is on our bodies every time we don’t get a good sleep. When you sleep your body totally refuels and gets ready for the next day, if you don’t let your brain rest you will not be able to conquer each day. While you sleep your brain is already trying to solve your everyday problems, but if you do not get enough sleep it cannot fully develop itself for the next day. Whether you’re wearing silk pajamas tonight or going in your birthday suit, be prepared for the best sleep of your life. Remember to let your body wake up naturally and you will feel completely rejuvenated for the upcoming day. Oh and if you are hung over….feel free to sleep all day.
