Advice & Tips: This is fine and wonderful, IF you have the time for it. I worked up until August, 2009 and couldn't take time for breaks to take a rest. I was working at least 40 hrs a week and I've had insomnia since I was a pre-teen. So there was NEVER enough restful sleep and still don't get that, no matter how much I rest.
