Maybe this way to achieve more hope in your life is too simple.  But I’m going to give it to you any way today.  Here it is.

Sleep.  Your body was created for sleep.  Most people need seven to nine hours of rest every day.  For teens and kids even more is needed.  Their bodies are growing at huge rates and they need even more sleep than we do as adults.  

Lack of sleep can inhibit productivity and trigger anxiety.  If not properly addressed, it can cause serious healthy consequences.  Indeed, amazingly, a lot of healing is done while the body is at rest.  It’s God’s way of giving us an anesthesia so he can do some of his best healing work.

How are you doing on the sleep front?  Just remember: a lack of sleep can lead to a lack of hope.

And all of us need hope to get moving forward in life.
