And this is about all I have to say in this post. Nothing profound... just thought that there might be someone out there that needs to hear this one statement:
Burning the midnight oil (staying awake) is not a wise choice!
It has very little benefit unless it is a very structured well thought out time that you will be spent accomplishing something important. And it must have time constraints. If you are staying up and dawdling about like I do you are better off going to bed right now and sleeping. Right now! I simply do not accomplish things well late at night. In the morning I can hit the floor running, but at night I go into "sit down and dawdle mode". If you have this problem, then go to bed! Seriously, we have to realize it is like a domino effect. Our tomorrows will not go as well as they could if we stay up burning the midnight oil and waste our precious rest. It is like a downward spiral.
When our bodies have rest we are more sane! When we feel overwhelmed with our days rest can do wonders!
