Sleeping is one of the most important sources of recovery in our lives.

Even small amounts of lost sleep can have an impact on strength, moods, energy level and concentration.  We need about seven to eight hours of sleep a night.  Less than four hours or more than ten hours will significantly increase the risk of disease. Sleeping all the time is just a way to avoid the world and it will be just as hard on your health as getting too little sleep.

If you’re a worrier than you should get a journal and spend ten to fifteen minutes writing down all your worries and any thoughts on how to deal with them.  Once you commit your worries to paper, take some time to also write down what you are thankful for.

Just waking up and being able to physically get out of bed is a blessing that many people do not have.  I know that at this point your heart just isn’t into being grateful because it’s just too hard to even make the effort.  But believe me when I say that your pathway out of this bleakness will be lit by the gratefulness you express for what you still have in life.
