This is week 2 of the Be Well Series. In case you missed it, you can read last week’s blog here: http://www.journeytothemountain.com/blog and listen to class here.
This week’s focus is on rest. Do you rest well? Do you sleep well? Did you know that sleep is very important to many bodily functions including increasing your immunity? Here is an article from the Sleep Foundation.org, https://www.sleepfoundation.org/articles/how-sleep-affects-your-immunity.
What if, instead of binging on Facebook, Netflix, etc …. what if instead you took a personal retreat for yourself and your family. Resting doesn’t just mean sleeping. It can be doing art, playing games, eating slower and enjoying your meals. Try listening to a story…..maybe you really enjoyed being read to as a child.

What if you gave yourself permission to do less…think less….and just be. Be present with your breath, be present with your loved ones, be present with nature.
Here are some helpful hints to sleeping better:

We need to have that long rest because it will help our body to heal and fight that sickness that we feel. We must learn that sleeping is an essential act and must not be treated as a hobby so that we may able to regain that strength that we need. We are all human beings and we all need to rest. Our body is not a machine so let us treat it with love and care. Life is so fragile and it is like a vase so let us be responsible.
