>It takes saying "too tired to tango" before we realize that doing something great for one's health at the wrong time will harm our health and levels of energy.

That's my story: Just call me Mr. Sleep Deprived. I fully participated in the worst health risk of tango. No longer, but I was too tired to tango. That doesn't mean I stopped tango! I tried to stop in 2017. But instead, I just started dancing at earlier events. Presently, I go to a practica in my town that has great dancers and starts and ends early. I started a Facebook group called Early Milonga Enthusiasts in my town (please copy the idea in your town). I now go to encuentros where the timing is always an early milonga and an evening milonga that does not go so late. I sleep in as much as I can on these weekend encuentros. But I'm not "too tired to tango"--during an encuentro! I dance for as much as 8 hours of tango. My Fitbit, worn on my ankle, indicates I walk for over 5+ miles (8-10 kilometers). The point of good sleep is that we are NOT too tired to tango! Sleep and tango are buen amigos!
