Do you ever feel guilty about sleeping in?
Like you're not a productive member of society because you took a few more hours of sleep? Were you raised in a family that FORCED you to get up on Saturday mornings before 9am because of some God-forsaken, old wives tale about being productive or lazy?
Yeah. Us, too.
When it comes to sleep, old habits die hard; and it doesn't help that we live in a world that celebrates the lack of sleep. Ever heard the saying: "I can sleep when I die?"
That's that bulls!t, Sis. You are a whole adult. You get to CHOOSE the way you live your life especially since you're the one who has to live with the results of your choice. Do you really wanna see the results of what lack of sleep can bring you? I think not.
Getcho damn R.E.M. sleep. You know what R.E.M. sleep is? It stands for "Rapid Eye Movement." Rapid eye movement means you're dreaming....that's that good sh!t. Good old fashioned R.E.M. sleep exposes you to all kinds of health benefits (don't take my word for it, do your research) including not aging like fruit. Yes. Lack of sleep will have you AND your eyes out here looking the inside of an over-ripe avocado.
One of the BEST forms of self care is sleep. There's a reason why they call it "beauty rest." It's natural. It's easy to get (unless you out here livin' dirty). And it's free AF.
Remember, Cutie Booty Media is a HUGE advocate of Self Care. Don't you never, ever, ever, ever, never, ever, EVER feel bad about taking care of yourself. Ever.
