Don’t be fooled by this cute little face.
Given she is currently torturing me in the form of sleep deprivation – this picture here is probably a better representation –
Given that little princess here has wanted to sing, dance, eat, cry and carry-on between the hours of midnight and 3 am before promptly getting back up at 5:30am for the last 3 nights I am barely functioning.
I should mention that sleep deprivation impairs alertness, concentration and reasoning and increases anxiety and depression. It can actually lead to serious health problems and I personally don’t function when I am this tired.
For todays Quiet Quest I will only be just mustering the energy to make and drink a nice cup of calming Sleepy Time tea. This isn’t the first time during Quiet Quest I’ve chosen a tea meditation after an exhausting day. Thich Nhat Hanh has a beautiful tea meditation that I highly recommend reading through.
Here’s hoping the little midnight party princess opts for sleep tonight……..
