When we’re tired, our tolerance is lowered, everything seems more difficult and mental connections just don’t spark as they normally do. But did you also realise that sleep is essential for our emotional wisdom? .
It is in REM sleep, our dream state sleep which mostly occurs in the second half of sleep into the morning hours, that we pluck seemingly random scenes, feelings and memories together and draw links between them, bedding down emotions that came up in the day.
Don’t cut your sleep short in the mornings! This is ESSENTIAL for your emotional wellbeing. 😴 🛏 by @henn_kim
Unsure what to expect today... I imagine perfectly normal and so far we haven't really known what we would face. The last few days have been a real education 🤯 This morning little man is on Optiflow which is air, not oxygen as some may think. It's only to give him a little more pressure to assist him. He had been working a touch too hard after yesterday's events with the canular. However, what you will see is how alert he is and already showing his mischievous side. Things like this really do give you a lift. He's gained more weight too, now 7Ib 3oz 👊
The machinery you see is daunting and can send you a bit cuckoo 🤪 The staff @greatormondst really help you understand, it's not that bad 😊
Take it for what it is and make the most of the situation you're faced with.
Was super proud of this cake, but this wedding and my birthday have thrown off my healthy plans big time. Thankfully I was able to weigh in for the @dietbet I was in (kickstarter and transformer won), but I’ve got another DietBet starting in June, and I’m certain my weight will be wayyyyyy up. Oh well, that’s life! Not stressing, just making plans to get back on track (after Tuesday—Tuesday is birthday party with pizza and brownie cake . . .) #healthyliving#weightloss#lifestylechange#marathonnotasprint#upsanddowns
