A busy bride will often cut down on her time in bed to do late night wedding planning or to attend early morning wedding appointments. But sleep is something you truly cannot do without. A lack of sleep can leave you tired, cranky, lethargic and stressed. Sleeping restores, repairs and rejuvenates you, so that you can wake up with a clear and well rested mind. Consider a catnap on the weekends if you feel sluggish or tired. Catnaps - a few minutes here or there - are great refreshers that relax your body and mind. So give yourself the indulgence of sleeping well and watch the tension melt away.
