I have overdone it lately. I did the 28 Hours of Hope last month which is very taxing on the mind and body. Two weeks later I went on my motorcycle trip to Topeka which also was very draining physically and mentally. My body has been feeling beat up.

I have been waking up each day feeling totally overwhelmed. I sit on the edge of the bed and think about all I have to do and get a defeated feeling immediately. How am I going to come up blogs, write a 5 hour show, get household chores done, get to the store, take my pills, prepare dinner and just survive another day? My whole problem is that I have just have not gotten enough sleep. I have heard so often from Susan's husband Dr. Bob how important sleep is to overall well being. The brain is the only thing in your body that actually needs sleep to reboot itself. I can tell you that I am a firm believer in this. Last night I finally made myself go to bed at a decent hour to make sure I got 7 hours of sleep and let me tell you, I feel like a new man. Do not take your sleep for granted. You need it. I know I have not been the husband, father, grandfather, coworker or friend that I should be lately because I have been neglecting my sleep. I feel like a new man. Do yourself and everyone who counts on you a favor and get your sleep. You need and deserve it.
