When creating our Energy for Empowerment Program, I did a lot of research on the effects of lack of sleep on our body. Turns out, lack of sleep can be the first domino in a chain of events that can wreak havoc on all aspects of your well-being. When you do not get enough sleep, your body does not operate the way it should, and the net result is increased stress levels and cortisol, which we all know is harmful to all facets of our well-being and fertility.
I have always been one that “needs” 7 – 8 hours of sleep per night, or else I never leave zombie-land throughout the day. Not only that, but even with 7 – 8 hours sleep per night, I still would rarely wake up feeling refreshed, energetic and feeling positive for the day. I used to need something like the “clocky” alarm clock that jumps off your nightstand when you don’t get up on time!
I am proud to say that I have changed that.
I now wake up without the alarm. I now wake up feeling positive and excited for the day. I start by planning my day while I still have my eyes closed and then spring out of bed. How did I accomplish this?
By reprogramming my subconscious to allow for deeper sleep, and re-thinking about how I awake.
One of the sessions in our energy program focuses on your sleep: Helping to fall asleep, and more importantly, programming your mind and body to sleep as deep as possible
It’s your subconscious mind in the wee-hours of the morning that dictate your behavior. If you have always woken up feeling lethargic and tired, I believe the only way to change that is to change your thinking. How can you change the thinking? By using your brain to guide your body and direct it to change how it feels and reacts to waking up.
It’s hard for me to listen to my own voice, so I have created programs that I know can help people, but I have been the last one to actually use them. My sister urged me to get over that and I am glad to say that and now I actually enjoy listening to myself (I sound pretty good, BTW!). Anyway, I have really started to integrate the sleep and other aspects of the Energy program into my routine and the difference is profound and life-changing.
I am so passionate about what you can do with our programs and thank you for following along!
