World Sleep Day


In 2013 this day is March 15.



Sleep is a special form of the existence

It gives strength to a daytime wakefulness.

A healthy person wakes up with a feeling of freshness.

A good sleep maintains physical and mental health.

And everyone knows that it's the main wealth.

Minimal level of brain activity and reduced reaction

Brings your body after sleep to the normal action.

It is proved that long periods of 'sleep deprivation'

Brings to losing sense of humor and isolation.

Deteriorating memory, perhaps worsening of disease

Sleepless nights can only irritability increase.

However, to sleep a lot is also harmful.

Eight hours is enough for me and the day is cheerful.



So, let this holiday be one more reason

On this tiresome early spring season,

To pay attention to your sleep and, consequently, health

Which you won't be able to buy for any wealth.



Pleasant, healthy sleep!

Let it be beautiful and deep!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
