New Year's Resolutions 2009: Sleep More

My second New Year’s resolution for 2009 is to get more sleep.

I probably average around 6 hours a night most nights. My goal is to get AT LEAST seven and to try to get eight hours of sleep a night. For the few nights I’ve done it so far this year, I’ve really noticed that I’ve felt better the following days.
