How You Exercise, Relax and Sleep
Do something you enjoy doing for movement and exercise because if you like it, you are more likely to do it. If you don't, you won't.
Take time for yourself. We live in a world where most people are very busy with endless lists of things to do and are often too busy to take time to relax.
Ask yourself, "Will the world come to an end if I don't get everything done today?"
Accept that you are never going to get all of your work done.
Ego says, "Once everything falls into place, I will find peace."
Spirit says, "Find peace and everything will fall into place."
-- Marianne Williamson
Getting enough uninterrupted sleep each night is necessary for cell repair. Prolonged stress levels, babies and small children, menopause, and pain are some of the factors that disrupt sleep patterns.
Exercise regularly, go to bed at approximately the same time, and don't listen to the nightly (bad) news before bedtime so your mind will be in a more relaxed state.
Avoid eating large meals too close to bedtime or drinking too much alcohol, caffeine and sugary drinks during the day as they over-stimulate your body, making sleep more difficult.
Power naps are good, too.
