The gift of restorative sleep
By Edward T. Creagan, M.D.
Centuries ago the Greeks understood the importance of the mind/body connection. They recognized that you can't separate spiritual well-being from physical well-being.
Today we know that taking care of your physical health helps you cope better with psychological stress. And a good night's sleep is a key part of the equation.
Overwhelming data demonstrate that when you don't get predictable and restorative sleep, you're more likely to suffer from irritability, anxiety, depression and a number of other health problems, including heart conditions.
So what can you do to get a good night's sleep? Experts recommend:

The Gratitude Challenge
Lately we are so often focused on others, what we have to do, or what we have not gotten done. Social media can make us believe that everyone else has it better or is living the life we want to live. It is time to put the focus back on ourselves. How so, you may ask? This can be done by simply taking a few moments of reflection each day this month to focus on gratefulness. Merriam-Webster online defines gratefulness as: “appreciative of benefits received, expressing gratitude.” With that in mind, commit to writing down three things each day that bring you a sense of gratitude; they can be big or small, regular day-to-day events or the unexpected. (Try not to repeat the things that you are grateful for!)
We have created a 28 day Gratitude Log for you to use. (Download Yours Here) We have included a space on the log for you to reflect after your month of being grateful to see if it has affected your life in any way. Do you feel like you have taken more time for YOU? Are you more appreciative of the people around you? Has your mood changed? Follow us on Facebook as we undertake the challenge and see what others are grateful for also! Hope you will join us for this Gratitude Challenge!
