Proverbs 24: 33-34

"Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man."

Dozing off on the job? Studies show that many Americans do not get enough sleep at night, due to insomnia, staying up too late at nights, fatigue and burn out. Consequently, we are always feeling tired and lethargic during the day, when we should be awake and alert! This constant state of fatigue and tiredness causes us to underperform at our jobs, and makes us poor workers. The key to a productive day on the job is therefore a good night's rest that leaves us energized and refreshed the next day. Cut out the late night snacking, and late night watching of TV. Remove the TV from the bedroom. Engage in something relaxing and soothing before bed, such as taking a hot bath, listening to soft soothing music, inhaling aromatic oils, etc. Make your bedroom a haven of rest and relaxation, so that you will be energized for work the next day.
