Essential Element: Our body uses sleep to rest and repair our tissues.  Our brain requires sleep to process the information from the day.  Critical sleep cycles involve hormone balancing that affects everything from your energy and moods to your metabolism and ability to regulate your body weight.  Sleep deprivation is actually a predictor of obesity. [click here to read Spark Insight: Restorative Sleep]

Journal:  Your employer puts out a mandate that in order for you to meet your 40 hour requirement for the week– you are required to take 10 minutes each day away from your desk – resting  your brain – turning your mind to non-work-related matters. If you missed a day in the week – your pay would be docked. Now consider yourself as your brain and body’s employer. You tell it what to do. This week, be on the lookout for the small openings -  windows of time where you can simply stop – take two deep breaths – and reset that hard working brain.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

Quote of the Day:  A man must be able to cut a knot, for everything cannot be untied; he must know how to disengage what is essential from the detail in which it is enwrapped… he must be able to simplify. ~ Henri Frederic Amiel
Essential Element: A major contributor to our nations health crisis is the general lack of rest and repair.  As a society we have bought into the idea that rest and rejuvenation is a luxury, not a requirement. We must take back our rest.  [click here to read Spark Insight: Rest and Repair]
Journal: You know that wreck of a desk you sit at? Those piles of papers that haunt you? The car that just keeps collecting things? Simplify it. Relinquish it’s hold over you by tackling it. Make a date – get rid of what you don’t need – and then take a rest.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
