Motivational Quote - Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

SparkPeople's Comments

Farmers rotate different crops on the same peice of land to give the soil a rest and let it replenish nutrients. How do you replenish? How much sleep did you get last night? 2/3 of Americans get less than the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Sleep can set the tone for your productivity for days and weeks to come. Not to mention your mood and brain power. Even small amounts of lost sleep add up to a sleep debt that muddles your brain and fatigues the rest of you. The negative cycle created by sleep debt may be the #1 way people destroy their goal achievement momentum. Regular amounts of good slumber set a sleep/waking rhythm that energizes you in the daytime and relaxes you at night. The more your body gets into the rhythm of regular sleep, the more the rest of your life can find a similar, consistent rhythm. So hit the pillow and hit your stride.
