When We Sleep We Heal! Period. When we sleep our brains has the opportunity to restore, to recuperate, to reset, and to restart when morning comes. Your brain is a sophisticated computer and it needs to reboot at times to function better during the next day.
When your computer is not functioning well, something gets messed up, a software glitch in the program, the first thing you can do before seeking the help of an expert is to shut it down and then restart it. Many times the problem will resolve itself, not always, but that’s a good start.
In fact, it just happened to me today as I was planning to write this blog to you. I had to restart my computer a few times…
Lack Of Sleep Can Cause Weight Gain Of
2 Pounds (0.9 kg) In Under A Week.
For most of my life, I was fortunate to have an amazing sleep. In the last couple of years I’ve had nights that my sleep was not so great. At times I couldn’t fall asleep and at other times I did, but woke up a few times at night and I had to count many, many sheep to fall back to sleep again.
In my case, it was due to hormonal imbalances and shifts. So it took some tweaks and soon enough, I was back on track with my peaceful and wonderful sleep.
I got a taste of what millions of people around the world are going through, and for some of them it’s not a quick fix.
I always considered my sleep to be on the TOP of my priority list when it comes to having physical, emotional, and mental balance, especially when it comes to healing any physical pain or emotional pain or a challenge.
Sleep is the NUMBER ONE thing that if we don’t check it on the list as a good YES, any healing path that we’ll attempt to pursue will not work as effectively as it could.
Some people resolve their sleeping issue by taking a sleeping pill that will knock them out and allow them to dive into sleep.
However, I’m not an advocate of chemicals and drugs so I don’t take that path even when I’m in pain. I always look for healthy and holistic solutions that will work for me both short and long term and that’s what I seek and provide my clients.
When We Sleep We Heal, Period!
It is as simple as that. If you have a good, I mean really good sleep where you can wake up in the morning and you stretch and say:
“Ha…I had such a great sleep,” then you nailed down the most important part of your healing. And I’m talking about a sleep that is as natural as possible, not induced with chemicals, alcohols, legal or non-legal drugs. I’m talking about that healthy-yummy kind of sleep.
However, if you ARE NOT waking up like that in the morning, you want to check and see what may be interfering and taking you away from the sweetest land of dreams.
Divorced, widowed, and separated people report more insomnia (insomnia =difficulty to sleep).
Here is a quick and simple guide that will help you start taking action towards that peaceful and restful sleep. There are 4 categories in which your sleep issue may fall into:
Habitual is related to a habit that is not supporting your sleep, like consuming too much caffeine during the day, or eating heavy meals too late at night, or it can be worrying as well (yes, worry is a habit).
Environmental is related to your environment, like keeping electrical devices in your bedroom, noise that keeps you up, or your bed or pillow are not comfortable.
Physical is related to physical issues or symptoms, like hormonal issues, neck or back pain, headache, cramps, etc.
Unknown – this is the tricky one and since it’s unknown, you may need to get some help in finding out what the source of your sleep issue is to address it.
Just remember that a good quality sleep is your number one place to start when you are looking to resolve any of your challenges. As you sleep, your unconscious state will allow your mind and body to do the healing work for you and help you to process the current events and challenges. Solutions will start showing up for you and (hopefully) you will notice when they do and take action.
Whether it’s a better sleep that you need to focus on or it is another physical or emotional issue that you have been dealing with and so far you have been able to find good answers, be sure to read my blog in the next coming weeks. I’m going to share with you each week ONE thing that you can focus on and make sure you get that one in order so you can enhance your physical and emotional healing.
