Sleep is a very important part of maintaining a healthy body; it's like recharging your batteries for the next day. Unfortunately, a lot of us aren't getting enough sleep. We are staying up late to finish projects, or homework, watching TV, Netflix, Hulu, etc., playing video games, or partying. We kind of dismiss the importance of sleep. We’ll wake up the next morning feeling drowsy and get a fix of caffeine to wake us up, which can hurt the body in the long run. If we understand sleep, we will take it more seriously.
I don't know what happened. I was making stir-fried tofu on my messy stovetop (because I still needed to clean my kitchen), and I randomly began singing Marvin Gaye. I ran through a few songs off of the What's Going On album, one that my mom played a lot when my siblings and I were younger, and was suddenly filled with emotion. The album spoke about so many things that felt so relevant today such as environmental destruction, sickness, war, hatred, the power of spirituality, etc. I grabbed my phone and pulled up the album, and played the songs back to myself. I cried...Hard.
