WHY SLEEPING ALL NIGHT IS NOT NORMAL
By Ruth Monk
I really love sleep.
Every night I get into bed and do a weird little happy wriggle, sigh and say..”I love bed”. Every night! My husband is a patient man.
And I am really good at going to sleep. I can sleep on the couch, or the beach, or under a tree. I can sleep on a plane and in a fishing boat. And definitely in a car. In fact I can say, hand to heart, that I have slept in all these places sometime in the last year.
CHOOSING THE CHALLENGE
By Ruth Monk
I love stability and structure and routine. In fact I thrive on it. I like its security, I like its discipline.
And then I don’t.
All of a sudden I find myself saying yes to suggestions when they come along. – Yes, I’ll learn to teach flow. Yes, I’ll take on that new role at work. Yes, I’ll go canyoning. Or (most recently) Yes, I’ll write a blog. That’s when the panic sets in. What do I know about writing a blog…I write worksheets and resources for teenagers and school reports. The last time I wrote anything of length I was at university and it was an essay towards my Science degree. And I’m pretty sure a blog is different to writing a scientific essay. But I said yes for a reason. I need a challenge and I want to try something new.
So why should we challenge ourselves, and try new things?
