Sleep the Healer - No Fooling

A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!
" Not until just before dawn 
do people sleep best; 
not until people get old 
do they become wise.
One is never too old to learn. "
                                 Chinese Proverb

" Silence is the sleep 
that nourishes wisdom. "
                                 Sir Francis Bacon

" Don't try to 
solve serious matters 
in the middle 
of the night. "
                       Philip K. Dick

" You can't wake
 a person who is 
pretending to 
be asleep. "
                  Navajo Proverb

" Bad sleep ‘dramatically’ 
alters the body...
A run of poor sleep can 
have a potentially profound effect 
on the internal workings 
of the human body " 
                              UK researchers

Studies show that people 
who don't get quality sleep
 or enough sleep are more likely to get sick
 after being exposed to a virus, such as
 the common cold. Lack of sleep 
can also affect how fast 
you recover if you do get sick.

" Sleep, rest of things, 
O pleasing Deity,
Peace of the soul, 
which cares dost crucify,
Weary bodies refresh 
and mollify. "


Before we leave
the night completely
[or at least for
another day]
I would be remiss
if I did not
the Master Healer
S L E E P.

A change in my sleep
routine is yielding
wonderful results;
After age 50
we blame things
on "age."

But getting just
2 nights of 
great sleep
has me feeling
like a Spring Lamb.


Are YOU getting
enough healing 
S L E E P?

             Fondly, cloudia

Cloudia, I'll keep this in mind. We need a certain amount of sleep each day.

The little robot with CAPTCHA is cute. An April 1 trick?

Good Morning, Cloudia

NO, I wish I could sleep better.. Any noise wakes me up..

I am happy for you though, have a happy day!

I notice in weeks where I have a day or two that I can sleep in and get 8 hours I feel much better on all fronts.

I always feel better after an uninterrupted night of sleep. Unfortunately I am not the greatest sleeper. Gorgeous photos and great quotes. Have a great day Cloudia!

Funny that you ask that, apparently so once you read my post of today! Great minds travel the same road with just a wee bit of a twist! Aloha, sleep and dream well.

unlike you, i've never been a night owl. i prefer sleeping at night. some nights are better than others. 4 big dogs, country, critters, full moons, coyotes, the list goes on and on... :)

Halcyon said...

I could always sleep more. ;-)
Love these glorious colors!

I like the "one is never too old to learn".

Cloudia said...

Thanks, my dear pals <3

RedPat said...

I got up this morning thinking about when I could go back to bed tonight! So I guess I need more sleep.

Elephant's Child said...

Nope. Not enough sleep. Not by a long way. Insomnia has moved in, and starting decorating so all your quotes today had particular relevance.

William Kendall said...

The Navajo proverb really speaks to me! Every once in awhile I have a bad night, but most nights I sleep pretty well.
