"Beauty Sleep for Sleeping Beauty by Elie Saab at Harrods" image by Loco Steve (Steve Wilson)
While "Sleeping Beauty" was not exercising nearly enough, at least she was getting enough sleep to keep her appetite in check. And that's important in the post-holiday season as we make New Year resolutions to lose weight and become more fit.

In "Resolve to Lose Weight with More Sleep in the New Year", my DeHaan Fitness article explains several links among sleep, appetite and weight loss.

Publicity for my Resolve to Sleep More Article

As always, both DeHaan Services ("Why You Should Resolve to Sleep More") and my Xanga blog ("Beauty Sleep as a Weight Loss Tool") also publicize my article.

One Restful Writing Tip that's not too Weighty

This writing tip restfully repeats something that I've said before.

Prepare your mind to keep your eyes open for inspiration.

I had already thought, "I really need a timely article for DeHaan Fitness that solves (holiday) seasonal weight gain with a simple New Year resolution". This had simmered in the back of my mind for at least a day or two.

Today I read an article about sleep versus appetite.

It took very few leaps of logic to adapt that to the holiday season. New Year's Eve is a late night so changes to sleep patterns and loss of shut-eye are common. Appetite and weight control are naturally linked. A few more links became obvious as I worked on the article.

The reference article was not tied to a seasonal holiday. But I easily recognized how I could apply their research in the current situation.

However, the topic only jumped out at me because I had prepared myself to find and recognize it.

WiqiQuotes claims, without a source, that Louis Pasteur said "Luck favours the prepared".

As per the Boys Scouts' motto, "Always be prepared". You'll be more lucky in finding weighty inspiration when you need it; especially if you're well-rested.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
