The Basics

I know you are searching for a new way to be in your life.  That is what has led you here to my web page. We are the first generation of which so much is being asked. Husband and wife work full time, have children far away from a support system.  Or we are single and having to do all of it, retirement, money, housing, daily routine of groceries by ourselves.  Some of us travel more days than we want to, to earn our living and impress our company.  We are flooded by adds, email, TV, non-stop phones and information on what we need to buy, what we need to look good, desirable.  No wonder so many of us is miserable, and tired to the core.

Worn OutLook around on your next plane ride, no matter the time of day, 80% are asleep in minutes, that is how sleep deprived we are. Ok so enough of the problem, what is the solution?

I have the experience through 22 years in private practice that one pill; one magic thing you buy on the Internet will not fix your life. It is a matter of self-love.  First and foremost self love, then boundaries and deciding what is truly important in your life.  Live with that in your mind at all times (helps keep the distractions at bay, oh, those dreaded distractions!!!).

Basics:

  • Healthy Food – with healthy food, which for the body is fuel, pure and simple, your ability to think, work and make good decisions that are life giving are easier.   Then good rest, that means relaxation time as well as good sleep.  That said, most of us don’t sleep that well…..because we worry, we are busy with our minds running, stay up too late or drink alcohol at night.
  • Good Sleep – good sleep routines are the most important to a good night’s rest.  Going to bed at the same time each night like a child will help us to regain the sleep of a child.   The body learns to anticipate your next move and wind itself down at night. Restful music, no TV really helps. Once you become more rested and eating good fuel, then life gets much easier.
