Celia Ward Wallace talks about the Power of Sleep1
We all know that sleep is good for us, but like all other things that are “good” for us it
often finds a way of being a low priority. The cool thing about sleeping whether it is a
nap or going to bed at night is that it let’s your mind rest and hit the reset button.
Whenever we feel overwhelmed or stressed out, getting some sleep is one of the best
and easiest tools we have to de-clutter our mind. Usually when we wake up we feel
lighter, refreshed and energized and often have a shift in perspective. Often sleeping is
where we have some of greatest creative inspirations, waking up full of excitement
about a new idea which came forth because of the space made in the mind by going to
sleep. One of my favorite tools to use when I have a decision to make and my mind
feels too full, is before I go to bed, ask myself “what should I do about this situation?”
and then go to bed. Many times, when I wake up I have SO much more clarity and know
exactly what to do. Another thing to keep in mind is that we just HAVE TO get more than
6 hours a night! Figure out what time you have to get up and then work your way
backwards from that and give your a drop-dead time that you need to be in bed. For me
I know I need at 7 hours a night of sleep. Come rain or shine I have to be up at 6am
with my daughters, so I working backwards I know that means I must be in bed by
11pm. I usually start my bed-time rituals around 10pm and then get my BUTT in bed. I
know the power of sleep and I am not going to take for granted this FREE and easy
tools for my happiness, and you should not either! Oh, and P.S. lack of sleep is linked to
heart disease, stroke, diabetes, arthritis, and premature aging. Getting sick will just add
stress and mind-clutter so take action NOW!
