You work hard! That’s why it’s important to remember a good night’s rest and a sound mind & body are key to performing at your best.
Pulmonologist and sleep medicine specialist, Dr. Bijoy John of MidState Pulmonary, recommends the following for catching more ZZZs to feel more zen:
The question and challenge for everyone is “how can I lead a more enriched life?” Life is hectic, and at the end of the day, we often feel empty! What, then, can we do to feel refreshed and rejuvenated?
The key is to have a “Sound Mind in a Sound Body”.
The events of the day mirror the events that occur at night. Meaning, a rested mind and body at night can produce a more productive mind and body during the day.
A popular quote is: “Sleep is the the currency that purchases all the pleasures of the world for cheap and balances the fool and the wise alike.”
So…how to sleep well?
