It is a *good* morning, isn't it??
If you are anything like me, this is a completely subjective question. It is reliant on one main factor: What time did I go to bed last night?
I am a night owl ~ I enjoy night time. Honestly, I enjoy the quiet time the late night offers me. It's nice.
Yet when it comes to being a manager of my home, I need to get up and going by a certain time (that time will vary for each wife & momma). My time will *never* be the crack of dawn (sorry honey), yet it must be early enough for me NOT to feel as though I'm playing catch up all day either (again, you will have to figure out what this time will be for you).
So if I need to get up at a certain time each morning, in order to be the best manager of my home that I can be (or that I want to be), it makes sense that I go to bed at a corresponding bedtime. Therein lies my downfall....
If I got up at my established best-time each morning....yet I was still going to bed at my regular time....I would be getting a grand total of *maybe* 5 hours. That is simply not enough for me. No matter how much I enjoy the night time.
So I continue to struggle against my human nature as a night owl. I *strive* to go to bed a bit earlier - although often times I fail miserably. *sigh* I'm trying.
And how about YOU!?!?
What time are you headed to bed regularly?? How many hours per night are you usually getting?? Do you get up at the same time each morning?? Do you find that a good night's rest really *does* make you a better manager of your home, or can you function fine with a few hours?? As you get older, are you finding you need more or less sleep each night??
Oh, and if you have any tips about how to maintain a REGULAR bedtime, and REGULAR rising time, *please* share with us ~ I'm sure I'm not the only one who struggles in this area!
Ummm....it's late, I need to go to bed...
