A good night's sleep makes all the difference when you're trying to keep your head above water. It is so hard to function when you are tired. I know from personal experience that this one is not always possible. During certain seasons of your life, a good night's sleep just isn't going to happen. But, even when it's not possible, we need to try to get as much sleep as we can.
I have a little guy who doesn't like to sleep. I understand all too well trying to function while exhausted. Lack of sleep makes small problems seem large. It makes life feel overwhelming. It makes me grouchy.
Our bodies are made to need sleep. Our brains can't function properly without sleep. Lack of sleep is the cause of what I call the Baby Haze. We function so much better with the proper amount of shut eye! If you're feeling exhausted, try to find a way to get to bed a little bit earlier (or sleep in a little later). It's worth the sacrifice!
Go to bed on time to keep that head above water!
