Sleep and rest is very important, we need to recuperate. If we don't, our health will suffer.

My brain goes into overdrive and then I get Stupid Silly after I sink into exhaustion. Thanks, and I know this. Hard to pay attention when you have way to many things going on in your life! Going to do YOGA!!!

Too much sleep makes me drowsy, unfocused, and out of it. Lack of sleep makes me feel more awake, energized, and focused.
