Sleep is a marvelous, and nearly mysterious part of life that does as much for our minds and bodies as anything we can do consciously. It repairs muscle damage, increases our immune system, organizes and stores memories, and provides relief from the worries of the day. It can even help us solve problems.
So where can you buy some of that?
If you are one of my clients, you know I encourage everyone to listen to your body for signs of emotional distress. Neglecting our physical health can cause emotional and cognitive trouble. Sleep is one of the four areas for healthful living that I repeatedly emphasize. It turns out that no matter how much an overachiever you may be, or how much stress you can handle, the lack of heavy, regular doses of sleep will create more trouble than you can cope with happily or effectively.
