Does your mother still tell you what to do? My mother thinks I need to go to bed earlier.
My mother thinks I need to go to bed earlier. She read an article in Mclean’s magazine, Sleep crisis: The science of slumber.
“Hey Pamela. I read a good article in MacLean’s about the lack of sleep. Adults need from 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Lack of sleep changes cells in our bodies, causing sleep apnea, depression, & on & on. Children need even more sleep, like 10 or 11 hours a night.”
Your life will be so much better if you go to bed at a consistent time every night & get at least 8 hours of sleep. Think seriously on this, I don’t want your cells rearranging themselves.
Berdeane Bodley – My beautiful, wise mother.
I read the article my mother suggested. My cells are rearranging themselves. My mother is right. I should go to bed earlier. The night before last I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning. The next day I was groggy, crabby and inefficient.
Sleepiness impairs performance.
Dr. W. Christopher Winter, medical director of the Martha Jefferson Hospital’s sleep medicine center in Charlottesville, Va
The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.
I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
Mother’s do know best. Right Mom?
