So today is not only St.Patrick's Day but it's also World Sleep Day. So you can celebrate St. Paddy's today and celebrate World Sleep tonight. It sounds like a win-win to me. The members of the World Association of Sleep Medicine and the World Sleep Day Committee tell us the importance of getting enough sleep.

Need help sleeping? Then read this:

Do something dull before retiring. A little boredom goes a long way toward promoting sleep. If your wife is asleep when you come to bed, she may be telling you something.

Keep the bedroom dark. Light interferes with sleep. That would explain why your wife has it so dark in there. However that doesn't explain why she calls you 'Juan the pool boy'.

Keep the bedroom cool and the bed warm. If it's the other way around, tell her. I'm sure she won't mind....yeah right.

Drink milk before bedtime. Milk contains substances that relax the body.  My problem is that the Oreo cookie crumbs keep waking me up.

Use your bed for only one thing: sleep.  Oh sure, she follows that rule.

One thing is for sure...Reading this has made me very sleepy. I guess I'm celebrating it today as well.
