TMI Thursday: So... Sleep Is Important

The past two weeks have been hell, or well, close to it. Last week I had literal exhaustion. This week, I got sicker than I've ever been before. Between the dizzy spells, fevers, and fatigue, I lost my mind.

As a person who exercises more than the average American, eats healthy, drinks a lot of water, and takes their vitamins, I don't understand why I keep getting sick. Or well, I don't want to admit to myself why I keep getting sick. But today is the day I admit I have a problem.

Hi, my name is Dara and I don't know how to get enough sleep at night.

You know you're a true night owl when your friends always assume you'll be up at midnight, just because. My problem isn't sleeping. I sleep like a baby. It takes me less than 10 minutes to fall asleep. Once I turn my head on the pillow, I'm out like a light. My problem is getting myself into bed because I can always find something to keep me up at night. (Can you say workaholic?)

A good friend—okay, all of my friends—flat out told me that the reason I keep getting ill is because I don't get enough rest. On a good night, I get five or six hours of sleep. On a bad night, I get three hours. It's a habit I need to curb! And as my best girlfriend shouted at me, "Vitamins do not equal sleep!"

Lack of sleep can lead to weight gain, slow you down, and damage your health in so many other ways.

So on that note, I'm going to bed.
