Counselors remind us that many of our problems are not purely psychological, but also influenced by physical and emotional factors. In fact, one of the most important questions asked is whether we are getting enough sleep. I was told by a doctor that an 8-hour sleep is a myth. What is needed is “enough sleep”, or more correctly, the sleep that adequately gives you rest. It is no point if one sleeps for 8 hours and feel unrested. Neither is it helpful to constantly feel that 4-6 hours of sleep is not enough, when it just could be.

But that’s not the point of this point. I am reminded of the Bible verses; psalm 3:5 where the Lord sustains us in sleep, as well as in Psalm 121, that the Lord does not sleep. Both are meant to be encouraging. Thus sleep is important, we need it, and the focus is to get rest/sustenance through it.

With that short thought, importantly, now is the time to sleep.
