The Holy Week is one of the most highly anticipated dates every summer as it gives most of us a few days off from work and school. Most families spend it together, whether at home for some quiet time or traveling to visit relatives or new sites. Whether you already have a packed itinerary or you’re still thinking of ways to spend the free time the holidays will bring, may we suggest that you squeeze in sleep in your plans?
While catching up on sleep on the holidays isn’t exactly something that will let you pay off your sleep debt, it can still be a great way to reset your body and get you started on sleeping better. Experts even say that sleep is the best thing that you can do on your vacation as it helps you relax better so you can doze off easily and without having to stress about getting ready to go and battling the commute the next morning, you can feel better rested by the moment you get up.
If you’re planning to do a spiritual take on this holiday, sleep is still a great thing to include in your plans. as the 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 New International Version (NIV) says:
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Sleep is a great way to take care of the body, so by doing yourself a favor and getting some zzz’s this holiday season, you might just be able to do something for your health and spirit.
