May is a Month of Sleep and Appreciation

My good friend Lisa would tell me, “Sara, three words: Pot. Kettle. Black.” It’s true that all of my life I’ve been a non-sleeper who would take random naps for survival. I can now attest that behavior like that can cause real damage–in my case, to my eyes, memory, and general overall health. I’m also finding that the more sleep my body gets, the more it wants! Celebrate Better Sleep Month by giving yourself a full eight hours sometime this week. It’s quite refreshing!

If you can’t sleep, try a technique I’ve learned from Laura Fenamore: Ask each body part calmly to relax. “Neck, relax. Shoulders, relax. Spine, relax.” It almost automatically does this! Just try. Your body wants you to.
