This time of year, with so many scrambling to readjust to new schedules, new schools and trying to adapt to new routines, it’s all too easy to deny ourselves permission to take care of ourselves.
It’s imperative that we, as the guardians of our family, not succumb to running ourselves ragged trying to stay ahead of it all. For one, it’s not actually possible and two if we are aren’t fully restored editions of ourselves, we have nothing truly of value to offer others. Pair this current state of being with the additional issues of constant overstimulation by social media, technology and 24/7 access to anyone and it’s a textbook case of constant overstimulation, devoid of any ability to quiet ones self.
According to the Mayo Clinic, The body's stress-response system is usually self-limiting. Once a perceived threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal. As adrenaline and cortisol levels drop, your heart rate and blood pressure return to baseline levels, and other systems resume their regular activities. But when stressors are always present and you constantly feel under attack, that fight-or-flight reaction stays turned on. The long-term activation of the stress-response system — and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones — can disrupt almost all your body's processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including:
Memory and concentration impairment
Arianna Huffington, Co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted, compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives--and even our sex lives. As of recent she has led the charge for all of us to chose, intentionally, to sleep well. She has written about it extensively in her book The Sleep Revolution and on her website. Here are her 12 tips for better sleep.
Keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool (between 60 and 67 degrees).
No electronic devices starting 30 minutes before bedtime.
Don’t charge your phone next to your bed. Even better: gently escort all devices completely out of your bedroom.
No caffeine after 2 p.m.
Remember, your bed is for sleep and sex only—no work!
Sorry, Mr. Snuffles: No pets on the bed.
Take a hot bath with Epsom salts before bed to help calm your mind and body.
Pajamas, nightdresses, and even special T-shirts send a sleep-friendly message to
your body. If you wore it to the gym, don’t wear it to bed.
Do some light stretching, deep breathing, yoga, or meditation to help your body and your mind transition to sleep.
When reading in bed, make it a real book or an e-reader that does not emit blue light. And make sure it is not work-related: novels, poetry, philosophy, anything but work.
Ease yourself into sleep mode by drinking some chamomile or lavender tea.
Before bed, write a list of what you are grateful for. It’s a great way to make sure your blessings get the closing scene of the night.
Things to consider outside of the house:
Beach, Trees, Books...
even video games designed to help you relax if you can't get out, like Walden!
