14 Sleep Tips from Dr. Weil

Have a good night! 😇

Health Hot Spot

  1. 1-2 hours before bed, turn off all blue light-emitting devices.  Melatonin regulates your sleep, and blue light from your electronic devices suppresses melatonin production.
  2. Charge your phone in another room to avoid the temptation to check it at night.

  7. Keep your bedroom temperature cool.
  8. Buy blackout curtains for your windows.

A lot of faith

It takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away.

Delayed Gratification: The Mother Of All Skill

InvestInYourselfFirst

Giving up temporary pleasure for future gains is called delayed gratification. An individual’s ability to delay gratification plays a significant role in shaping their health, well-being, and success in each aspect of life. If given a choice between receiving 1 dollars today and 10 dollars tomorrow, most of us would likely opt for the latter. This kind of decision-making process is Delayed Gratification, and we practice it every time we consciously forgo immediate rewards to reap the benefits of a more distant goal.

Forgive them anyway

Musings

To forgive someone is not easy especially when that person threw invective at you. You’re clueless as to why that person suddenly spilled over in a Froth of rage.The one person who insulted your whole being. One who jumped to conclusions and believe the worst in you.

Close your eyes and imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it…

I’ve always had a deep respect for Youtubers who manage to turn a hobby into a career. Lilly Singh, the infamous (iisuperwomanii) has over 13 million YouTube subscribers, has written a New York Times Bestselling book “How to be a Bawse” (which is definitely worth reading) launched a bombshell lipstick “Bawse” with smashbox cosmetics, is one of the most humble humanitarian out there and that is just the beginning. She is honestly so cool, hardworking, hilarious and everything. She’s had a YouTube channel for over half a decade and despite everything going on in her life. She still manages to post two content videos a week for her fans.(fangirl right here😍) And when she started, she probably had no idea how far it…

When the Trust Account is High

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

– Plato –

*****

You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.

When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective.
