Did you know that March 7 to March 13, 2011 is National Sleep Awareness Week in Canada? It ties in with the “Spring Forward, Fall Back” schedule and has been designed to remind people about the importance of consistently getting a good night’s sleep.
If you haven’t noticed already, I’m passionate about the art of sleeping. In keeping with the Irish Proverb, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book” and to honour National Sleep Awareness Week, I’ve collected a few humourous quotes on the topic. I hope you enjoy them.
