Ask any physician and they will tell you that rest is essential for physical health. When the body is deprived of sleep, it is unable to rebuild and recharge itself adequately. Your body requires rest.
Ask any athlete and they will tell you that rest is essential for healthy physical training. Rest is needed for physical muscles to repair themselves and prevent injury. This is true whether you run marathons, pitch baseballs, or climb rocks. Your muscles require rest.
From my upcoming book,
Your garden is full of goodies that can be helpful not only in your kitchen, but in your home spa. Fresh plants and vegetables are full of potent vitamins, minerals and other beneficial components that can be used to create fresh beauty treatments at home.
1. Identify it for what it really is: False Evidence Appearing Real.
As human beings, we are essentially controlled by two emotions: love and fear. We act out of one or the other. The beautiful thing? We have the ability to choose the thoughts we think and the emotion we attach to them. While fear is pre-programmed into us as an instinctual response to potential danger, much of the every day stuff we fear isnt dangerous at all. We have simply convinced ourselves what were fearing is real.
Give Yourself Permission
Each night as you lay your head down to sleep say, “I allow myself to sleep peacefully and restfully.” And believe it. Your subconscious mind can help you sleep but it needs direction.
Imagine yourself in a beautiful field, and theres a hot air balloon with a basket suspended beneath it and tied to the ground. Put everything on your mind into the basket-all worries, concerns, issues, people and things. One by one empty your mind. Now untie the balloon. Lie back on the grass and watch it slowly float away, up higher and higher into the sky. See it move farther from sight until it becomes so small and distant that it disappears.
