 								Sleepless in Manila: I Need to Stop Taking Sleep for Granted
We all have our own demons at work. Lately, mine has been daytime sleepiness. It’s when you find yourself nodding off in the middle of typing a sentence or just struggling to stay awake in front of the computer monitor. If you’re guilty of the same thing, then it’s probably been a while since you last had a good night’s sleep. On average, I get around four hours of shut-eye, and apparently, it’s not enough.

article_emmys-2013-best-dressed.jpgI just love award shows. The glitz, the glamor, the teary-eyed acceptance speeches—what's not to enjoy? But while the awards themselves are the main attraction, I look forward the most to seeing what all these celebrities wear to hit the red carpet. I love seeing the women in their gorgeous gowns and the men in their dapper suits—and I love watching every single one of them attempt to one up each other.

I love the fact that I get to write for a living, but once in a while, I do need to take a break from work or risk suffering from burnout. If money were no object, I’d pack my bags for a trip out of the country. I’d fly first-class, shop until I drop, and come home with tons of wonderful memories. But the thing is, money is an object, and that means I have to think of other ways to keep burnout at bay. Below are my top three ways to unwind:
