Hello to you all! I hope this letter finds you healthy and happy. Although, some of us may find this goal hard to achieve if you are lacking in one particular area...sleep! No matter how well you eat, or how much exercise your get, you still can’t function at your highest level if you are sleep deprived. Which brings me to my suggestion to check out. It is an app called calm.com.
This app has so much to offer! There are daily wellness topics discussed by Jay Shetty, quick daily guided meditations, short exercise routines to keep your body feeling more flexible and energized. However, one of my favorite features is the sleep stories!
I have a problem where I feel very tired, but my mind is still going in many directions, making wind down time a challenge. This is where the sleep stories come to the rescue! The peaceful stories are read to you while you rest. They describe beautiful places where the story is set, often in far away places you have only dreamed of going. The soothing voice of the narrator describes them in great detail, so you feel like you are there yourself. It is just the ticket for those of us with busy minds. You can disconnect and let go of the worries from the day, while being lulled into a peaceful night’s sleep. In fact, they work so well that I have yet to stay awake for an entire story!
If you combine this with not eating too close to bedtime, keeping your room free from light of a laptop or a TV, you may just find that a good night’s sleep is not so elusive after all! For less than $7 a month for a subscription, I think you’ll find you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.
So, get cozy and settle in with a good story. It will take you back to your childhood, when you were being read a story and having difficulty resisting the urge to nod off. Wishing you all some much needed rest, and a refreshed feeling when you awaken to a new day. Sleep tight!
