Be Inspired to Have a Good Night Sleep with these Quotes

I can't believe that for the past three days, I've not had a good night sleep. Something isn't just right. Oh Lord, fix me. I need me some good sleep . . . 

25 Inspirational Quotes About Sleep

I find their quotes surprisingly insightful. And some even make me chuckle. Trust me, you'll find them (at least two) very inspiring.

After what happened last night and the previous night, I came up with mine:

"When you can't sleep, figure out why. When you have figured it out, keep a memory of it." 
~ Amakamedia.

Secret: Some years ago, while I was watching my weight (I still do tho), I used to think sleeping made me fat. I dreaded sleep. I deprived myself of a good sleep. But that's all in the past. I love to sleep as much as I can now. I so want my sleep back. Maybe we should start a new movement for #BringBackOurSleep. You in? Lol. 

On a lighter note. A good night sleep should be regarded as a blessing from God. When you've got some, be grateful.

The Bible says in Proverbs 3:24b,
". . . when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet."

So tell me, what's your night like? Is your sleep sweet?
