When Sleep is Elusive

Whilst it’s good form to start a piece of writing with an appropriate introduction, I’m keen to get in quickly with an assurance that this piece will not contain veiled criticism of the nation’s poor ‘sleep hygiene’; we mostly know about the downsides of blue light from our devices late at night .. and for that matter, being up late at night when going to bed would work better. We even know about the effects of caffeine and alcohol, and we likely have an idea about the ideal temperature of a bedroom. Whether or not we take all of this on board, sleep, sometimes continues to elude us and it’s affecting huge numbers of us, so what might be behind it?

It’s our assertion that the epidemic of impoverished sleep has much to do with modern life; that multiple aspects of the way we live (some of them completely out of our control) impact our homeostasis, or in other words, take us out of our natural balance and for some of us, one of the most noticeable casualties is our ability to sleep. If sleep challenges source link are indicative of an imbalance, then I too must confess to being ‘unbalanced’, and my sleep story over the last couple of decades resembles a roller coaster with some very pronounced dips.

I’ve ‘resolved’ insomnia before, only to discover that when it recurred more recently, the previous solution wasn’t what was needed now, at least not for falling back to sleep. Sleep deprivation makes optimism and ambition more than a little challenging and yet I have flashes of both as I work at uncovering the root cause(s) of my sleep problem. I cannot deny that I’m extremely fortunate not to be doing this alone; Graham is interested and tireless in his efforts to help and there are signs of progress. It seems I may ultimately be grateful that this experience has highlighted something I needed to address.

The go to link Power of Nature for Sleeping Better Class then, is less about the well-known remedies (although they will get a mention), and more about the areas to look to do the detective work for bringing the body back into balance and maybe even turning the trial of insomnia into a ‘gift’, at least with the benefit of hindsight.

  • Graham and I will provide information about food and supplements, including relevant research linked to sleep. Graham is both qualified and well-versed in answering questions about food and supplements for sleep-related matters.
  • We will also highlight the relevance of stress-reduction for improving sleep, or coping better with not sleeping; my experience of teaching meditation plus the direct experience of applying it to my own circumstances may prove to be relevant to others.
  • Essential oils have multiple benefits in respect of sleep whether to induce a relaxed state to make sleep more likely, to lend support in re-balancing the body, or as a means to replace the more toxic substances that impact us on a daily basis with something that works much better with our physiology. We are very pleased to be handing over to http://www.ecoshelta.com/?kampys=forex&f68=27 April Birch for this part of the class. Her commitment to essential oils comes not just from working with them, but most importantly from using them for herself and with those she loves.

What We Bring To The Table

For a whole variety of reasons recently, we’ve had cause to put the spotlight on what we value and why. It never seems good enough to simply reduce or eliminate something that we know to be detrimental to us, in fact the prospect is dismal and uninspiring. Human beings need the reward of progress, achievement and perhaps above all, the creativity to pull it all together. It’s this part that fires us up and which we love to share with others, so that they too can be fired up about looking at new and creative ways to be well or contribute to a more naturally balanced world.

We almost certainly know by now that sugar, especially refined sugar, is one of those things that should ideally be reduced if not avoided altogether. The latter in particular, however, is especially challenging and for most of us unnecessary as long as we find ways of making sweet foods differently, better, in fact! This is the basis for this Pay As You Feel class in which we will talk about solutions to avoiding the white stuff in favour of more natural and even nutritious ingredients. It is worth noting too, that in the process of creating better desserts and sweet things, we also quite naturally make them free from dairy and gluten.

Creativity in the context of resolving sleep difficulties may seem less obvious than creative approaches to dessert-making, but for Annette in particular, this has become a necessity which has ultimately had some significant rewards. We’re delighted to be hosting this new class on timberland dating site May 12th alongside go April Birch. She will demonstrate the power and significance of essential oils in respect of supporting both day and night-time balance for achieving better sleep. We will also take this approach, in our case by looking at food and mind-related approaches not just for getting better sleep, but also for those times when sleep doesn’t happen, no matter what. There are more details including how to book by clicking click here.

Very recently we’ve got rather ‘wrapped up’ in the whole issue of packaging, waste, plastic and other single-use materials. As a birthday was approaching, the prospect of wrapping paper, some of which is unrecyclable due to plastic coating and other materials, seemed decidedly unappealing. So we set about looking at ways to do this differently and decided the Japanese way of wrapping might well be the ideal model for doing something more beautiful. The only potential challenge appeared to be that neither Annette nor Graham are adept with a sewing machine … and we did say beautiful! The answer for us came from Annette’s sister Jane who is both ‘can do’ and talented such that she now has a bit of a production line which we are proud to be making available for others like us who don’t have an affinity with needles and thread, but do like the prospect of enhancing a gift with something attractive, more tactile and reusable (at least for the recipient). Does wrapping like this appeal to you? Would you consider answering the super short poll in https://mummiesclub.co.uk/bilbord/2346 this link?

Finally, we wanted to draw attention to our Power of Plant-based Food classes. We ran a number of these last year under the heading The Power of Natural Food and noticed that sometimes they were well suited to individuals with specific requirements and who preferred the intimacy of a private class rather than a group setting. In most such cases participants have known what needs to be addressed, but are not always clear on ways to do so. These classes for one allow us to attend specifically to the individual and their wishes through both information and inspiration about food and the opportunity to enhance this by having lunch with us. We bring something different ‘to the table’; we aren’t medical practitioners or nutritionists and we can’t heal you, but we believe that you can heal yourself with a helping hand and exciting ideas based on our own experiences and extensive knowledge acquired over a number of years. The es malo conocer chicas en un calabozo link here is for a class in our calendar. The format is similar for a tailored option.
