In yesterday’s posting we covered how you feel when you are running on empty and how you feel when your personal tank is filled.
We talked about the first thing that you can do to make sure that you start refueling you own life, for free.
- Garbage in = garbage out – make sure you eat right!
Now let’s take a look at step 2…
Another thing that you are already doing each and every day, at least we hope you are, is sleeping.
- How many hours a night do you sleep on average?
- How many hours a night do you need to feel good after sleep?
- Do you believe that you can function with no sleep during the week and then on the weekend sleep in and catch up on the sleep you have been missing?
If you are that person that is saying you don’t need sleep you probably fall in with the average person in North America and get between 4 to 6 hours of sleep a night. The problem with that is that doctors have told us from studies that your body needs 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night.
Most people have a television in their bedroom and fall asleep with it on, or just after watching a program. If that program is the news, your last thoughts are going to be of the story that the news was sharing that evening. If you choose to watch anything else, you are attempting to fall asleep after sharing time with whatever program has been focused on holding your attention instead of letting you relax.
If you must do something before bed, pull out a book and read. Let your mind escape and release the thoughts of the day instead of watching flickering images designed to stimulate you.
It is now time to turn that tv off, stop reading this blog if you are in bed and get to sleep! Of course if you are reading this blog in bed, we hope you come back in the morning after sleeping.
