The sun rises, and the sun sets. The night is a time for healing. Our bodies and our minds are restored. Cutting short sleep means cutting short healing. Sleep is luxurious. It may seem self-indulgent. But sleep keeps us whole. Work, yes, and work hard, but then sleep, and sleep deeply, my friends.
