I’ve always loved butterflies; I find them magical, beautiful, intricate, and a real treat if one lands near by.
To be like a butterfly on the other hand, not so much.
Lately I feel like I’ve been all over the place; I can’t sit down for long, I’m flighty and forgetting things like turning off the oven, or dates I’ve planned with people, I leave a room to have to reenter to do what I went in there for originally.
It’s getting bad you guys!
It’s not magical, beautiful nor a real treat!
So what’s the deal?
It sounds silly to start blaming loss of memory and lack of focus on sleep. I know it does.
But I’ve learnt a lot listening to this book:
Did you know that:
Sleep affects not only productivity, but also weight management and overall health?
Yes of course you did. Most of us do.
But did you know it’s because when you don’t sleep, or you have poor quality sleep, your brain sends a signal that tells you it needs glucose to function properly; thinking, idea creation, social control, judgement, etc And what’s the quickest way to get glucose into your body?
Starchy, carbohydrates like doughnuts, cakes, and cookies OH MY!
So what could have prevented your late night snacking, your crazy overwhelming cravings, and yes, your flighty brain and lack of focus?
Next time you catch yourself craving a sugary sweet:
stop, breathe, and think: have I been sleeping properly lately?
