The importance of a good night’s sleep

We often underestimate the importance of a good nights sleep. I know that if I have not slept properly just about every aspect of my life is affected. For a start my general mood suffers quite considerably when I am tired. I am normally a fairly cheerful sort of person and I never get depressed, but a couple of nights without sleep turn me into a sour old grump who you would not like to spend time with, in fact someone whom I wouldn’t want to spend time with. I get anxious about ridiculous things and I get irritable and snappy, not nice at all.

Lack of sleep does not help my work either. I find it really hard to concentrate and I often find my mind just wandering off. Time seems to drag too. When I am really tired the hours just drag on and it seems as if I am achieving nothing. I have also noticed that remembering things becomes difficult and doing anything mathematical is just about impossible. Even simple arithmetic can be a challenge and I have to keep checking everything. My concept of number magnitude is also affected. I can waste a lot of time just staring into space in a sort of torpor.

The only good thing about being really tired is lying down in a nice warm comfortable bed and feeling that wonderful sensation of perfect calm as your consciousness dissolves and you drift off to sleep, good beds are vital to a good nights sleep. It is surprising how restorative just one good night’s sleep can be. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a long sleep; quite often just a few hours can do the trick. I find that just few hours of undisturbed sleep can fix all those problems of bad mood and lack of concentration and I wake up perfectly refreshed to face the next day.
