This is my cute dog - & she knows it (& I am biased !)
Border collies are generally good natured calm dogs.
Yes it surprised me that sometimes she would be grumpy.
Maybe it shouldn't surprise me; we humans can be grumpy.
Sometimes I’d think - did we walk her too much, tire her out?
When my kids were young I was very aware that I was always keeping an ear out for my kids. I’d keep the doors open to ensure I always heard them if they woke during the night & needed me. I know this has an impact on the quality of sleep but it's our job as a parent, right?
During one night, my dog woke me up - it seems she heard something.
It suddenly dawned on me: Just as being a parent you need to keep an eye out, the dog's job is to protect the family. So it struck me that she too is keeping guard & maybe she doesn't sleep as soundly as she could because she needs to be ready for full alert.
So, in its simplest form - we all need our sleep.
7-8 hours per night.
Otherwise we may be grumpy.
Prioritising sleep will make the next day go so much easier for you.
I help people with sleep, because I know the vital importance to well being.
Tip for today - get your quality sleep: reduce mind chatter and stress, and take magnesium.
