Sleep is the new coffee

Cinderella Castle clock
Time waits for no one.

 

The only time i hit the snooze button is when i’m exhausted.

But coffee can fix that, right?

What if the only reason coffee serves us is because we are tired and unmotivated?

What if we got eight hours sleep every night?

What if we had a clear, concise, and compelling purpose?

What usefulness would coffee have that sleep and purpose couldn’t provide more strongly?

Our Son, A Guardian of Ga’Hoole

“Once upon a very long time ago, in the time of Glaux, there was an order of knightly owls, from a kingdom called Ga’Hoole, who would rise each night into the blackness and perform noble deeds.  They spoke no words but true words, their purpose was to right all wrongs, to make strong the weak, mend the broken, vanquish the proud, and make powerless those who abuse the frail.  With hearts sublime they would take flight —-“

In mentioning to a work colleague that I recently read the first (in a NY Times best seller series), Guardians of Ga’Hoole book, and how refreshing it was to not read a business or self-help book, she said her doctor commented that this is a tactic to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

While I had never heard this before it made me feel good.  How often do we, as mid life adults, hear something totally unsubstantiated and automatically believe it’s true?

The real reason I started reading Guardians of Ga’Hoole is to find common ground with our son (9). Perhaps that’s a good antidote against aging too.
