Good Sleep-the Foundation of Spiritual Living

Sleeping an extra 60-90 minutes each night is a no cost treatment you can do at home to enhance happiness, health and safety. You can begin to improve your health and well being in just a few weeks with this practice and makes it less likely that you will develop hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, obesity and cancer and it reduces risk of early death.1

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 35% of adults are sleeping less than 7 hours a night. After 7 days of insomnia and sleepless nights genetic markers for inflammation, stress, heart disease, and metabolic problems begin to increase in the blood stream.2 One challenge of sleep deprivation is that the more tired we become the harder it is to realize how truly tired we are.3

Some people have sleep difficulties because of hormonal imbalances, sleep apnea, substance abuse and stressful situations. It’s a good idea to see your health practitioner if you have experienced more than a few weeks of poor sleep.

I believe that being rested allows our entire being to relax and know more peace, tranquility and joy. When we enjoy the inner harmony that good regular sleep brings our awareness is filled with peace and can more easily “wake up” to the truth of our Divine Being. 

I know and accept that you and I sleep in peace, wake in joy and live in goodness and love. Our mind and body are healed with restful sleep each and every night. And this creates the foundation for waking up to richer more spiritual living.
