I wish that all the people I love and care about can benefit from this knowledge, so I’m sharing! Below are just the highlights, but there are some fabulous points that are very simple to implement into your daily routine.
Health & Happiness Tip from Dr. Michael Breus, Ph.D
Do you have episodes of walking into a room and forgetting why you are there? Or do you forget where you left your keys? You may not be getting the REM sleep that you need.
There are several stages of sleep, REM is one of the last stages, where you transfer your short term memory to your long term memory. You aren’t going crazy, you just need more sleep!
Take your supplements! Having the proper amount of Vitamin B3, B6, B12, D, Calcium, and Magnesium in your system will help you sleep better.
Dr. Breus’s 5 Steps to eliminating your snooze button:
1. Pick 1 bedtime and stick to it (even on the weekends)
2. Drink caffeinated beverages BEFORE 2pm each day
3. Refrain from drinking alcohol 3hrs before bedtime
4. Exercise, but not 4 hours before bedtime
5. Get your 15 minutes of sunlight everyday!

Up your water intake, eat wild salmon with a watercress salad with olive oil and lemon dressing. (Watercrest is a powerful anti-inflammatory green. If you don’t have watercress, try another green like kale or collard greens) Have some blueberries for dessert!

Prayer: “Oh God, help me to believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is.” This prayer is such a helpful reminder that by expecting the worst, we can sometimes attract the worst…but expecting the best we can attract the best!
