Crunch Time

DLS is just around the corner.

I am following up on my previous blog, “I Know It Is Early…”

Like I said there,

“My plan is to wake up an extra 15 minutes each day, a week before.”

And to get lots of light each morning.

While I am doing this housekeeping, I will check in on my sleep hygiene: get in bed on time (waking and sleeping) and keeping off my devices a couple of hours before bed.

So I rewatched the Time magazine vid I linked in the article above.

I will link it in this article for easy access.

It’s not too late to prepare for better sleep…

I Know It Is Early…

Doing, when it matters most

Be mindful now!

There are many people or peoples that reflect the above image or practice.

Does the message kill the practice or is it the messenger?

Does breathing cause us harm when we fall into the habit of shallow breathing?

The experience of being mindful may be its best teacher, but many students will need a Little Rock and roll to get the message across to them.

Check out the sexy app about being mindful now!

Don’t worry, you will find it if it works for you.

Inspiration

Why do we need inspiration?

To stop us from giving up in the face of adversity.

Why do we need hope in the form of inspiration?

Although, we may not have faith from a religion, we may still garnish hope from a faith in the inspirational that move us in that direction.

How does this ‘hope’, move us?

It inspires us through our ability to be strong and experiences to move toward whatever will help us to continue to face this adversity until we are safe and sound and ready to live a good life.

After all, being able to live the good life requires a lot of growth and striving to get past our problems of mere survival.

We work hard at this goal to be more civil and less fearful in the face of ongoing adversity.

Most of us are still afraid to face the idea of death head on.

Most of us fail everyday.

Most of us suffer and feel alone.

It is a struggle to pick ourselves up after falling so far from being civil, compassionate and kind.

Inspiration reminds us to strive to be good people and give up violence to be more compassionate and kind towards ourselves and others.

We build a life on this foundational truth.
