Over-thinking will lead to headaches
The moment a newborn baby makes the first cry, it’s also time the new parents say bye to waking up naturally and the beginning of sleep deprivation. There’s a sense of envy that comes with seeing newlyweds or couples without children have total freedom on Sundays to do as they see fit- wake up when they want to, shop around, make a simple dinner for two. On the other hand, new parents would be woken by screams and laughter, followed by a series of servicing action for a little one- it’s a different kind of happiness and contentment.
Over-thinking or being sleep deprived for long periods time can exhaust yin-blood leading to headaches.
