    Couldn’t agree more! Now only is adequate sleep good for productivity, it’s especially helpful for physical, mental and emotional health.

    Thank you. In ‘enter the dragon’ Bruce Lee finds himself in a bind. In the middle of freeing prisoners and chasing after his nemesis he gets caught in an elevator-type cell. With no way to escape, and a few minutes to himself, he sits down in a corner, deliberately folds his legs and meditatively rests and recovers instead of using up his reserves by panicking. I think it relates to your excellent and important tip.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. And, for many people, choosing to get more sleep may be all that’s needed to make the healthy life change. (Lucky them!)

    However, for many people, getting good sleep is difficult, even when the time is set aside for it. Physical, emotional, relational and spiritual dynamics can seriously hinder getting good sleep. Ironically, “sleep anxiety” (i.e. feeling anxious about being able to fall and stay asleep) can become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

    Choosing to prioritize sleep is the first step, but for those who find themselves running into sleep difficulties, even after setting aside the time for it, I encourage you to seek help and stick with it. As someone who has periodically struggled with sleep (and is married to someone with sleep challenges), I can testify to the dramatic improvement in the quality of life when consistent sleep is achieved.

    I’m glad you mentioned naps. I think that they are great for refreshing you in the slow times after lunch. I find that getting up at 4:30am helps my wife and me get a jump on the day. We can spend time talking, drinking coffee and exercising together but we can’t always get to bed early enough to get a full 7-8 hours sleep, so naps really help to catch up on the much needed sleep.

    I usually get 8 hrs. night-time sleep, But I love in addition my 20 minute afternoon nap.

    So true! We tend to make poorer decisions when we are experiencing HALT: Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. These are the scenarios that lead us into trouble if we are not careful, and we have a choice in every one of them. What I do with those choices will effect my tomorrow. Good night!
