Sleep is the best meditation. –Dalai Lama

 

Not only is sleep a perfect method of meditation, it’s also critical for us to maintain our health and sanity. Of course, I am my own best enemy when it comes to getting enough sleep. That should probably change–for me and for everyone who burns those candles at both ends. Here’s a great piece on sleep a very good friend sent me today. Food for thought.

Happy October!

    Thank you so much for the article link. We’ve all heard we should get more sleep, but the scientific WHY was left out of those TV anchor news clips. Considering the serous amount of Alzheimer’s in my family, I’m going to try really hard to turn off all my screens at 9pm every night. I don’t trust myself to remember, so I actually set an alarm to remind me tonight!

      It’s 9:00 pm, here, Priscilla! Did it work? I swear I need a nanny to drag me off the computer and make me go to bed, lol.

        I turned off all my screens at 9:00 and went to bed at 10:00. I fell asleep so fast I don’t even remember falling asleep. I remember climbing into the bed, then nothing. Maybe it was a fluke, I dunno, but I’m going to try it again tonight. I gotta admit, I was a little anxious when I couldn’t check my email ONE MORE TIME before I hit the sack, but I survived.:-)

          Whoa! That’s amazing. Good on you. Send me some of your sleep fairy dust!

    Thanks, Laura! Good luck, Priscilla, I have tried everything, but I think the trick is to get the right amount of exercise every day.

      Yes, exercise does make one nice and tired in a good way. Are you a night owl, Skye?
