Essential Element: Late night television, the internet, 24 hour drive-thrus, and 60-hour work weeks have created a cultural norm of nocturnal living that is unrecognizable to our ancient hard-wiring.  If you are like most people, your body expects and requires more sleep than it gets.  [click here to read Spark Insight: Restorative Sleep]

Journal:  A great indicator of a tired human being is the capacity to fall asleep in down time. Take a quick inventory of your last week: Where was there down time? Did you capitalize on it by deciding to take a nap – or  did you attempt to do something ‘restful’ and wind up falling asleep? Look at the week coming up. Write down three 20 minutes spaces you can afford your self some real rest.  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
