Sleep is a waste of time.

Yep. That’s what I believe. Sleep is a ginormous waste of time.

Oh, I’m not against a great nap or two. But the whole night?

No.

Not when there are books to be read. Homework to be done. Dogs to be played with. And writing.

Then there are the movies and great TV shows to watch. Not to mention cooking!

There’s way too much to do to spend the entire night asleep.

Which is why I’m telling you my deep dark secret:

I resist going to sleep. I just don’t want to.

Oh, I know it’s good for us. It’s rejuvenating. Sleep helps us stay mentally and physically healthy. We’re supposed to luxuriate in it. Yeah, like those gorgeous pillows.

But it’s just such a waste of time!

Here’s the thing. I like the morning rituals. A hot cup of coffee. Sitting at the computer reading and writing.  Cracking open a book. Watching the sun come up.  I LOVE morning!

But sleep? Not so much.

So, tell me, what exactly are your thoughts on sleep?
