Ahh, sleep. It’s a comforting friend, fueling you for the day ahead. Many of us are severely lacking in the sleep department, especially now.
It’s hard to get your eight hours a night when your mind is weighed down with the day’s thoughts. It feels like nowadays there’s more to think about than ever before.
It’s also hard to justify good sleep habits sometimes. Sure, we all have the same 24 hours, but doesn’t it seem like some people can fit so much more into theirs than you can? It can especially feel that way when you’re looking at celebrity moms. It helps to remind yourself that they have access to a lot of help that the average mom doesn’t.
There’s also the fact that due to all those commitments, some of these moms are not as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as you might think.
