Sleep

One Easy Tip For Difficulty Falling Asleep

“Sleep is like a dove. If we keep our hand calm she will sit on it. If we try to catch her, she flies away.” Paul Dubois

Sleep is so important for our health. It is important not only for physical health but mental and emotional health as well.

Frustration

Sometimes when I get really frustrated about something, I think of children who are tired. We are just like children. When we are emotionally drained or exhausted, we just want to cry or whine or lash out. At least I do. 🙂 This can be when sleep comes to the rescue!

Naps are Good!

I am a lover of naps and I do tend to stay up too late and to also get up early so naps help to balance out my sleep when I need help with that. I see naps as very healthy.

Don’t Fight Your Sleeplessness!

What I have learned over the years is that sleep can be evasive, just like the quote refers to. So, I have found that the best thing you can do is to not fight your sleeplessness. When I cannot sleep I say something to the effect of “It is okay that I am not sleeping, my body is still resting and this counts”. Or “It is okay that I am not sleeping, by lying here my body is healing and rejuvenating regardless”.

As a person who both studies and works with the power of the mind, I know that by saying these things and programming my mind to believe them, they work!

Do not underestimate this simple technique. If you have trouble sleeping, I encourage you to try it and to let go of the struggle. 🙂

Aloe Vera, Your Amazing Life

Aloe Vera – Amazing For Summer!

My huge Aloe Vera Plant

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is an amazing plant for healing and nutrition. I am grateful to have this huge aloe vera plant that has recently given me 4 babies or pups as they are called. The babies are bigger than most aloe plants that I have seen in the past lol. You can see the one pup that I have left in the pot with its Mom.

Aloe is good for both internal use and external and you can find a lot of information on the internet about it and ways to use it.

With summer here in these parts of the world, if you don’t have an aloe plant handy for using you might want an alternative. I love this aloe vera gel for having on hand for things like sunburns, fly bites and even swimmer’s itch, which we get sometimes here in my neck of the woods.

Here is the link for the gel and if you are interested in getting some for your summer tool kit, I would love to give you a discount. Use 15OFFMA and you will get 15% off.

I hope you are as excited about the summer coming soon as I am. EnJOY!
