Wellness Wednesday – go to bed

Cristy’s dialogue with her (left) brain on Super Tuesday (primary election night in Minnesota and many other states):

Higher self: You need rest; time to go to bed.

Left brain: But there’s political news! What if I miss something?

Higher self: Whether you stay up late or not, you won’t change the results.

Left brain: I wanna watch news coverage and eat snacks.

Higher self: That may be the pattern you have established in times of stress. But it really doesn’t help anything.

Left brain: I’m still gonna do it.

Higher self: I forgive you.

Left brain (while watching disappointing news coverage): Why are people such idiots?

Higher self: Go to bed. People seem less idiotic when you get more sleep.

Left brain (sticking tongue out like a toddler): I don’t believe you.

Higher self: That’s okay. I love you anyway.

Calvin bored now
Really Mom, it’s time to go to bed.
