Resolve to Improve Sleep Field
It's a cold rainy day here in Georgia. In fact it's downright dreary. Yet I must confess that I love this weather. It's perfect for self reflection, studying and making resolutions. I make several new resolutions every year, or more accurately I update my resolution list. I do manage to accomplish maybe one thing and the others remain works in progress.
For instance, this year I resolve to be on time with my blogs. I have not been doing so well as of late. My last deadline was missed even after I checked with my editor to make sure it was my turn and she confirmed. So Val, this one is for you. As for the rest of the list it consists of the usual suspects: lose weight, exercise more, get healthier, etc. You may be familiar with that list yourself.
I have one more, and it's important: I have resolved to be more active or proactive in our field as it relates to my abilities and my state. I was inspired after reading the article about Rita Brooks in the October edition of Sleep Review. It was indeed food for thought and I can certainly see areas where not only I -- but all of us -- can do more. And by more, I mean at least one thing. We can write a letter, make a phone call or on our day off drop in to our local rep's office for a few minutes. I am fortunate that in my area our officials are fairly accessible.
Given how far behind I am with my reading I should probably make at least one more resolution. Happy New Year!
