We are little stars. We have to shine our light so that we can be seen in the darkness. If we do not, then we cannot fulfill our destiny. Likewise, if we do not sleep enough or at all, then how will we ever grow into the person that was meant for us? How will we ever become “us”? How will we learn and develop as a human being? It is important to give yourself time during your day to rest because it helps you improve your health and well-being on many levels!

The Importance of Sleep: sleeping has always been an integral part of the human life.
A lack of sleep leads to decreased performance, depression, increased risk of heart disease and stroke, weight gain and mood swings among other things. It is important to get enough sleep each day so that we can live a healthy lifestyle! If you are not getting enough restful sleep it is time for you to start re-thinking your daily routine in order to find some balance between work and play. Sometimes what we need more than anything else when faced with exhaustion or stressors in our lives is peace – an opportunity just for ourselves where we don’t have do anything but be joyful and still. Sleep allows us this brief reprieve from everything going on around us: there will always be something urgent happening elsewhere; we can’t control everything, but we can take back this one thing.
Home is where the heart is – and home should be a place that feels safe: an environment of rest for our bodies; peace for our souls.

The importance of sleep – Blog Post by Dr Michael Breus: “Sleep is probably one of humankind’s most important endeavors.”
“There are three types or stages of sleep: light, deep, dreaming,” says Hyslop. “Simply put, if you don’t dream during your night’s sleep then there may be something wrong with you.” The first stage occurs when an individual falls asleep from a wakeful state; this usually lasts about 20 minutes before they enter the second stage of sleep.
The first type or stage of sleep is called light, which lasts for about 20 minutes before a person enters deep sleep. The brain waves are extremely slow and it’s hard to awaken from this state; however, if someone does become conscious they’ll most likely have no recollection of what has happened in that time period. In addition to being unable to remember anything during this phase, these activities won’t lead to any physical benefits either as there is little movement from muscles needed for building bone density, development of synapses and other growth within the body cells. Deep dreaming occurs around 90 minutes after entering deep sleep; when we’re dreaming we don’t want an interruption because our consciousness will be interrupted and return back into wake
