Do as I say not as I do--since my hubby has been away I've stayed up later and later. Bad move: not only does it throw of your circadian rhythms, it puts a strain on your diet. If you DO stay up late, avoid giving in to the munchies and drink hot tea or drink water.

1day a month I shut myself away. I prepare by having everything I need or special things I will enjoy alone, food, drinks etc, shut off the phone and just sleep in, meditate-pray, write, whatever I feel. I feel great when I return to the world--rested and renewed.
