SLEEPING IN: A SENIOR’S PRIVILEGE

Oct 26th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Some of us seniors experienced and learned to enjoy as teenagers the gift of sleeping-in. And at this age, something over 60 or so, we still crave that opportunity on occasion. It is one of those privileges that comes with being able to choose exactly what you want to do and doing it. Sleeping-in trumps “but I have to get up” feelings that came with accepting responsibility, having a job, meeting a deadline, concern over what others might think, and the plague of suspected laziness.

However, so long as it does not become a daily habit, occasional sleeping in is one of those choices that Seniors have earned the right to enjoy and practice. It displays a sense of self awareness, that I am in charge of my life and my day and if I choose to sleep in, that is quite okay.
