Sometimes sleep feels like a firecracker. Sometimes the firecrackers spark without a hitch after being lit. Sometimes our heads hit the pillow and we are out like a light very quickly. Other times it takes a LOOONG time and tons of lighter fluid to get the firecracker fuse to light. Sometimes our sleep efforts take TONS of effort and time. The CDC says that more than a third of Americans do not get the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep needed for overall health and well-being!
