Hello, Nice People!
It's just me today. Yeah. I'm in the bed where it smells like my Mummsy and Daddy-o. My stupid brother is roaming the house with his Pumpkin and Ball. He seems to be grumbling about no one being here to play with him. Our parents are away at work.
I try to occupy my time with naps while they're away. Sleep is good for you. Especially for writers and artists, like myself.
Did you know that German scientists did a study? 'Its the first hard evidence supporting the common sense notion that creativity and problem solving appear to be directly linked to adequate sleep'. You can read the entire article here, by William McCall, at the Associated Press.
Sleep also helps to keep our immune systems healthy. While in dreamland, our bodies make something called Cytokines. When we're sick it helps us fight infections. You can find the article HERE from the Mayo Clinic .
Want to lose weight? Sleep. Want to keep the blues away? Sleep. Having writer's block? Sleep. I'm sure I could scour the internet for this information. ***yawns*** But I'm getting tried again.
I hope this encouraged all my writer buddies to take a nap if you need to. There are plenty of benefits from getting enough of them. So don't feel guilty. I sure don't. In fact, a nap sounds really good right about now.

PS I posted early since Mummsy's been having some issues with her internet.
