Restful sleep is a key ingredient to living your best, most miraculous life! It has been found that we truly need seven to eight hours of REAL sleep to feel fully rested and be able to perform at your highest level.
In an interview with Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-in-Chief for the Huffington Post, she discussed how sleep is crucial to innovation. She said, “the world is in desperate need of big ideas - and there are many, many of them locked inside of us. We just need to close our eyes to see them”.
Lack of sleep is another way that we block our creativity, power and intuition. We often measure our productivity based on how hard we work and how little sleep we can survive on, as if this gives bragging rights. This mentality is negatively affecting our health and overall well-being. Sleep is a spiritual practice, to some degree, and the first step to restorative rest begins with how we fall asleep.
Make a conscious effort to leave technology, social media, television, email etc some place far away from you , (so you are not even tempted), and quietly do a breathing practice or simply think about all the things you are grateful and blessed with and sweet dreams. Sleep tight!!
