A Poem for Love

my poem for love
neither rhymes nor idolizes,
for my love is filled with
jagged edges and hasty judgments.
sometimes the judgments were on the mark
and sometimes they led to heartache.
the early love was sweet and pure,
but also clingy and desperate.
trial and error led to gathered friendships and
effort wasted on fruitless encounters.
advancing years brought wiser decisions
and a deeper connection that was able to blossom.
love for children built ecstasy and depth,
but also fear and worry,
the constant companions.

my poem for love
neither fantasizes nor gushes,
for my love is filled with
realistic moments and dashed expectations.
sometimes the expectations were unrealistic,
yes, most times they were, that is true.
when the expectations were put to the side
and fantasy left for the writers,
the moments of deep connection
have been sweet and fulfilling.

my poem for love
brings music and rhythm,
for my love is filled with moments of
unplanned dancing and laughter.
sometimes the laughter is simply a release
and sometimes it is heartfelt and pure.
these are the moments that rush by
and yet,
they are the ones to remember.

my poem for love
continues its journey.
it neither rhymes nor gushes
rather, it follows
its meandering and flowing way.

my poem for love is real.

From my upcoming book, Love Leads the Way.

Last week, I was walking along the street and overheard a man on a motorcycle who was stopped at an intersection. I heard him exclaim into his phone “It is impossible to repair the world!”, and then he rode off. This man’s statement caught my attention, and I decided to ask Spirit if this statement is true.

Here is what Spirit shared with me:

“The view that the world is unfixable is incorrect. Many things can be fixed, but they require clear vision and purpose. Relationships among people can be fixed through patience and understanding. Relationships between people and the environment require determination to be undamaging. Treatment of animals that is humane requires people be aware of the similarities between animals and people. Environmental damage is preventable through acknowledgment of ways to prevent damage. Wars can be prevented through a lessening of nationalistic superiority. Virus transmission can be prevented by maintaining good health. Soil can be replenished through attention to natural cycles of biorhythms.

Repair of the world requires desire for humility, perspective, and humor. And patience. And kindness. And more patience. And more kindness.”

We are born and bestowed with a body that functions (usually) and a brain that learns to protect us, guide our experimentations, and oversee our connections to people, plants, animals, and deity. We are given a life to live, with a soul that is like a fingerprint: ours and ours alone.

Having the body and the brains and the soul are not enough to create a life that is true. Our lives also requires vision: a vision that guides us towards the future and a vision that turns inwards and sees our struggles.

Showing up for life means to use the vision that comes from the eyes and from the brain. When we show up for life, we see what the others need and what we can’t do without. When we show up for life, we understand that the thing we need the most is Love.

When I started writing down the spiritual guidance, the first book I wrote contained a lot of information about life in the modern world and our expectations and responsibilities. I’m rereading this book, and one chapter particularly jumps out at me. It’s called “Embellishments” and its focus is on how most of us live “embellished” lives in which we focus on more than the basics of living. The emergence of the pandemic draws me to this chapter. Here are excerpts from it:

“Once a person’s basic needs are met, embellishment can occur. Embellishment refers to the extra elements that enhance existence. After the most basic level, embellishment means a bit more choice—choice between this berry and that berry; this location to sleep in and one slightly more secure; or a higher feeling of security. Further embellishments could be an abode to sleep in; more abundant food choices; time to enjoy surrounding features and life; and personal care. Continued embellishments could include interaction with the surroundings for enjoyment; interaction with unnecessary accouterments, or a permanent dwelling to live in. Taken to the extreme, embellishments include excessive amounts of money, food, and possessions; more than one dwelling; or having an inflated sense of oneself and one’s worth…

In the modern, Western world, life has become so embellished that we assume, feel, and demand that the embellishments are our basic survival requirements and our deserved rights. We know that we are meant to live in a secure environment that provides not only shelter from the elements but also a place to express who we are (decorative items, pleasing furnishings, and extra touches). We know that we are entitled to labor in endeavors that supply us with satisfaction and monetary remuneration. We know that we deserve to be acknowledged for our efforts, be they for the good of our society or for our own betterment. We know that we deserve to be capable of providing our families and/or friends with whatever they want (for example, gifts). We know that we can choose to do this or that, be this or that, refuse this or that…

But the reality is that the natural world does not consider our expectations. From time to time, the natural elements push us to remember that the world has its own rhythms and expectations, that our embellishments are minor in the scheme of the flow and ebb of the world. In these instances, we are humbled and returned to our less embellished lives. The focus of our existence becomes unmistakably apparent and clear. Our expectations lessen and we accept less. We live more authentically and more thoughtfully. Our manipulations and interactions become less important; our basic needs become the focus.

Fortunately, life usually returns to some semblance of its former, advanced presentation and people return to interacting and manipulating as before. The flow and ebb continue, and the cycles of natural existence and created reality perform their own¾and intertwined¾dance of the forces. Nature and crafted reality move towards one another, then away, and then together in a different variation, and so on. People find their place in the cycle of this constant change…”

“Embellishments” is in the book The Gift of Intuitive, Dedicated Comfort. You can find it at this link.

They think these drugs will help them–>the ritalin and the adderall and the focalin and the vyvanse and the others. They think their problems need a pill that will cure them and make their world rosy. They think there’s something wrong with them because they don’t fit into the little boxes that society has created for them. And they think that they will be better people when they are drugged.

Here’s what Spirit says to all of that–>the drugs are poison and the pushers of these poisons are misguided and even corrupt sometimes. The pushers pretend to care, but their concern is to their own wallets. The drugs are mistaken paths, and they bring trouble in the present or in the future. There is no place in society for these drugs that masquerade as help.

Stuttering

Stuttering

Currently, there is interest in the speech issue of stuttering, so I’m reposting this earlier blog post.

Many pressures such as unrealistic expectations, fear, hardness, or other oppressive treatment can cause off-balanced behavior in children that leaves them feeling unsure, unsteady, and undone so that they do not feel complete in their true selves. Each person is born with a temperament, likes, dislikes, and more, and sometimes the caregivers are unable to handle the child’s way of being. Even caregivers who truly care.

As a child navigates the life that is presented to him or her by caregivers and other people, patterns are acquired. Patterns of movement, of speech, of viewing, and of hold-approach develop that are specific to the child. Some patterns are idiosyncratic and some are socially reasonable. The socially reasonable behavior provides easier access to others. Idiosyncratic behavior confounds. The more a child behaves in socially confounding ways, the more the child self-torments and self-deplores because of the reactions of others to the idiosyncratic ways.

Stuttering is one example of idiosyncratic behavior.

Fixable?

Throughout the stages of life, there is possibility of stopping idiosyncratic behavior. The age is not important, but the desire is. There are many proposed therapies for the phenomenon of stuttering. The therapies that include relaxation, breathing guidance, self-acceptance, and singing are the therapies that are most successful.

mask

Wearing a mask can affect health when the breathing is too restricted. The positioning of the mask and its comfort on the face are important for overall health.A mask that compresses the nostrils or constricts the jaw affects natural breathing and blood flow. A mask that bruises the area behind the ears or cuts into the chin affects the immune system and the flow of lymph.

Breathing is also affected by the mask’s effects on feelings. Feelings of anger, fear, or powerlessness can cause breathing that is agitated. Feeling that the mask is repressive or unsightly can cause shallow breathing.

People who normally oxygenate their bodies through shallow breathing may breathe more shallowly with a mask. The mask will lead to breathing issues because the breathing was inadequate before and is now more inadequate.

There are ways to breathe when wearing a mask that provide enough oxygen to keep the body functioning properly. Here are tips:

  • If you don’t wear a mask as part of your regular work routine, you need time to adjust to it. When you place the mask on your face, focus on how you’re breathing and correct the mask’s placement if your nose is too constricted, your ears hurt, or your jaw or chin feel too much tightness.
  • Once the mask is properly placed, practice breathing deeply. You can practice while staying in one place or moving. The main thing is to focus on deep breathing.
  • If you find yourself feeling agitated or worried because of the mask or because of the situation, remove the mask if possible and take several deep breaths. If you can’t remove the mask, try to take several deep breaths and think about getting oxygen to your body so that it can support you during your emotional moment.

Diagram

“‘The Food 20/20 Plan’ uses colors, shapes, and line types to describe the relationships among elements of the plan. The dashed lines present non-food aspects of eating. Appreciation is emphasized with two dashed lines because of its important effects on health.

The food groups decrease in size to indicate the amounts to be eaten. The foods in the green group–vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes–are meant to be eaten as the main elements of a healthful diet. The other food groups are meant to be eaten in smaller amounts…The foods in the yellow group–eggs, meat, dairy, and seafood–appear with a dashed gray line because of ethical and sustainability concerns.”

This diagram replaces food pyramids and other graphic nutrition guides. It focuses on the foods to be eaten and the atmosphere in which to eat them. Tangible and intangible aspects of eating are important for good health and well-being.

The Food 20/20 Plan helps us see food and the eating process with 20/20 vision. The 20/20 vision can help us see clearly and with focus. It is now available in Kindle and paperback versions. Click here to order.

hugging oneself

“Joyful love is love that is bestowed without conditions and without expectations. Joyful love can be felt when overcome by the beauty of nature, when immersed in the attention of a playful animal, when mesmerized by the exquisiteness of an infant, and when experiencing the love of a person who has strong feelings of love in return. Joyful love is felt more strongly when it is allowed to spread and is given towards oneself as well.” –from the chapter “Unexpectant Love” in Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey

Loving oneself joyfully is not so simple. It requires acceptance, appreciation, and action. The three As.

Acceptance is needed for love to grow boundlessly. Acceptance of physical handicaps, annoying habits, and learned criticisms is key to feeling loving towards oneself. Each person has physical handicaps, with some being more apparent than others. Accepting them and then working with or around them is joyful behavior. Each person has habits that irk others and oneself. Acknowledging these habits and either working to change them or embracing them is joyful focus. Each person has learned criticisms from caregivers, society, and authority figures. When the criticisms are internalized, they can cause emotional and mental damage. Understanding that the criticisms are harmful and then accepting and moving past them is joyful intention.

Appreciation is needed for self-love to be possible. Seeing oneself clearly and ignoring noise that calls for criticism is necessary for appreciation to occur. Noticing accomplishments–large and small, plus remembering to express gratitude for capabilities are necessary for self-appreciation and joyful expressions of confidence.

Action is required to create expressions of self-love. The actions can be an intangible or tangible pat on the back, a daily ritual that includes acknowledgement of being alive, a prayer of thanksgiving, joyful activity (jumping for joy, dancing around, laughing, or silliness), and a vocal or silent statement of love for oneself.

Post 132-breathe-in unison

Spiritual expression refers to more than religious affiliation.

Having religious affiliation does not automatically instill spiritual connection. Even people who outwardly show religious fervor by donning the clothing of the devout or attending religious ceremonies regularly are not necessarily experiencing spiritual connection.

Religious affiliation is one avenue towards spiritual connection, but there are many other ways to achieve it. Pondering the beauty of a tree or the crush of the waves on the shore or the movement of the clouds can incite spiritual connection and lead to personal expressions of spiritual longing. Attending to the needs of children or animals can create connection that leads to spiritual expression of amazement and awe. Immersion into artistic expressions of oneself through music, movement, or art are spiritual expressions when the artists are truly expressing their soulful selves.

Spiritual expression impacts health and well-being. Prayers that are expressed earnestly are spiritual expressions that raise immunity. So are the ponderings about nature and nature’s creatures. Immersion in soulful artistic expression is also impactful on health, as long as the body’s needs are not ignored (the needs for proper sleep, hydration, and nutrition).

The key words are earnestness, pondering, and soulful. When any of these words actually describe the endeavor, then the spiritual expression is uplifting to the body and soul. Rote recitation of prayers, feigned amazement at nature, and obligatory execution of artistic works are not uplifting at all.

Spiritual connection

I’m happy to announce that “The Food 20/20 Plan” has been printed and is available on amazon.com! It’s a book that makes me very happy because it combines my interest in nutrition with guidance from Spirit. I hope you can see the cover clearly, because it shows all the elements of the plan and their importance in our diets.

Here’s the introduction:

“Food 20/20 means seeing food and the eating process with 20/20 vision, seeing them clearly and with focus. Eating is a process that keeps us alive and keeps our bodies functioning. Eating is meant to support our bodies as long as we are alive, and is meant to help us maintain good health.

Nourishment is more than consuming foods that supply nutrients to the body. Nourishment includes intention and atmosphere. Nourishment of the body nourishes the soul when the intention is appreciative of the food and the atmosphere is uplifting.

The Food 20/20 plan presents eating that is elevated and satisfying. Following it can open you to better health, increased energy, and fulfilling dining experiences!

Sad heart

There are many reasons we sink into failure mode. Sometimes we lose sight of goals and desires. Sometimes we forget the steps required to get somewhere or lose the way completely. Occasionally we make impressive starts but then slack off or quit completely. We even choose to blame people from our distant past for our selecting to fail.

The call to fail can be strong, but the call to succeed can be just as strong when we really want to succeed. To help choose success over failure, here are a few tips:

  • Create reminders of the chosen path. The reminders can be notes placed strategically around the house, alarms set on the phone, regular meetings with supporters or like-minded people, carefully crafted schedules, rewards for reaching major and minor goals, pep talks in the form of quiet reflection or animated soliloquy. Each person chooses the reminders that are personally helpful.
  • Examine health habits. Sleep is important: are you getting enough nighttime sleep? Nutrition is important: are you eating mainly nutritious foods at regular times? Friendships: are you making time for visits with friends? Activity: are you moving your body enough to release energy and avoid stiffness?
  • Distractions are too numerous. Understand the things that are undermining you and take steps to move them out of view or reach.
  • Make sure that the goals and desires are really suitable for who you are. Are they goals you set for yourself or were they set for you by others? The best way to know if a goal or desire is suitable is to understand who you are by taking the time to understand the things that truly appeal to you.

Success or failure can bring happiness or disappointment. Failure that offers a way out of something not wanted can be a positive thing, while failure to attain something truly desired can be devastating. If we know ourselves and know what we need and want, we can work towards them through perseverance and focus.

Because of the racial distress happening in the United States now, I’m reposting Spiritual Position on race as set forth in the book Descending into War, Descending into Contempt.

Condescension because of race is irrational. Belittling because of race is weak. Generalizing about race is uninformed. Thinking disparaging thoughts about other races is contemptuous.

Superiority because of the foolish thinking that race has influence on value is deluded. No race is superior to any other. Race is variations of people. No more, no less.

Descending into War, Descending into Contempt explains the main causes of conflict, which are the feelings of superiority, inequity, disappointment, and emasculation. These disruptive feelings push people to act with contempt towards others. They incite actions that end connections and lead to conflicts that often seem insurmountable.

Conflict seems to exist everywhere. Racial tensions divide, political opponents battle, and religious groups are combative. Even connected and supportive relationships fester in conflict. The sources of conflict are many, and they impact together and individually to inflict negativity within families, communities, and nations.

Acknowledging the sources of conflict is the first step to stopping conflict.

Although the topics of conflict, war, and contempt are difficult and often disheartening, Descending into War, Descending into Contempt ends with wisdom and instructions that can lead to a more just society.

The immune system is designed to stay functional, but modern society provides too many ways to sabotage it. In the post “Immune system decimators”, the decimators are listed, and some of them are discussed in later posts:

Environmental hazards that decimate the immune system

More about immune system decimators

Immune system decimators, exploration continued

If you want to know what to do to overcome the destructive work that can be done to your immune system, read on…

Here are ten must-dos to keep your immune system functioning properly:

  • Food first:
    Less sugar, more salads. Less white flour, more lentils. Less margarine, more water and soup. Less processed meats and cheeses, more seeds. Less soft drinks, more whole grains.
  • Environmental hazards:
    Switch to natural cleansers and remove cleaning products that contain ingredients listed in the environmental hazards post. Limit dry cleaning. Keep smartphones and smart devices farther from your body. Avoid cigarette smoke and cut back if you smoke. Use natural beauty products. Avoid sunscreen products that are not safe.
  • Sleep:
    Each person needs to understand his or her sleep needs and be mindful to fulfill them. (There are other blog posts about sleep.)
  • Trauma:
    Working through past traumas is very important. When the current time is traumatic, steps to handle the trauma are very important.
  • Injury from drugs:
    Carefully check labels of prescription and nonprescription drugs to be aware of side effects and possible contraindications. Addictions are difficult to handle alone and require resolve and support from others: for addictions to legal or illegal drugs, aim to get help.
  • Loud sounds:
    Loud sounds are detrimental to the immune system, especially for children. Keep this fact in mind as you live your life.
  • Alcoholic beverages:
    Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation and at a slow pace has little effect on health, unless there are any of these circumstances: tendency towards addiction in the family, when autoimmune conditions are suspected or confirmed, when overconsumption of sweets or insulin resistance are occurring, when alcoholic beverages are forced on a person who doesn’t want them. Alcoholism, like addiction to drugs, is difficult to handle alone.

There are more ways to build up the immune system; however, the must-dos listed above have a very big effect.

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a two of them that are surprisingly related.

Let’s look at: 7. Trivialization of bodily functions  (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate) and 9. Drug-related injury  (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs). Each of these causes are partially within a person’s control and partially not.

Trivialization of bodily functions can be taught or self-discovered. People who feel that they are too busy to attend to bodily functions have self-discovered this behavior. People who were taught as children that bodily functions are unimportant or negative have less control of their destructive behavior. The impact on the immune system depends on a person’s age when trivialization of bodily functions starts to be a way of life. Over time, the immune system is more and more impacted and it can eventually give up. Taking care of bodily functions is of utmost importance for balance and well-being.

People choose to use drugs for many reasons. Sometimes drugs are prescribed to them by doctors. Sometimes a friend supplies them. Sometimes a person searches them out. Sometimes societal pressure convinces people that the drugs are a way of life. Whatever the reasons for using drugs, their impact on the immune system is the same. If the drug is taken irregularly, its impact on the immune system is dependent on the person’s age and emotional state. Chronic drug use, like trivialization of bodily functions, impacts the immune system and causes it to give up.

Once the immune system has been decimated by drug use that is chronic or excessive or by extended trivialization of bodily functions, the body cannot protect itself from invading viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Internal gene-related disturbances are usually not triggered by these types of disturbances, unless fear is present and is chronic or overly strong.

The immune system requires a functioning framework in which to handle its duties. External decimators, like drugs, and internal decimators, like trivialization of bodily functions, break the framework. The immune system simply cannot handle the onslaught of destruction.

Cecil the lion

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a few of them that are related.

From the list, 2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body and 4. Holding onto perceived injustices are closely related. If 8. Fear is involved with either of them, their effects on the immune system are more devastating.

The immune system is meant to keep our bodies protected from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism. The immune system also helps prevent gene-initiated diseases and syndromes.

# 2. When a traumatic event occurs, the body can be resilient or can store the traumatic memory. Traumas can wash through a person and leave little effects or they can imbed reminders in organs and systems in the body. These reminders swerve functionality, which then changes the ways in which the body handles onslaughts of germs. After a trauma, a person can be more susceptible to illness. If the trauma left reminders, the susceptibility to illness can continue for years.

# 4. Holding onto perceived injustices is surprising in its ability to unhinge the immune system. People face disappointments throughout their lives, and people who remember and regurgitate the disappointments are lowering their body’s ability to maintain a strong immune system.

# 8. Fear is a difficult emotion. It is natural, and yet, it sometimes overtakes living. A fearful event has repercussions in the body, but usually the fear instigates protective responses. If the fear is chronic, the protective responses slowly weaken the immune system. If fear is present during a traumatic event, the body can “rebel” and various buried syndromes can ignite. For example, if a person experiences a trauma and feels VERY fearful while the trauma is occurring, gene activation can occur and possibly trigger an autoimmune response.

Fear that accompanies holding onto perceived injustices is less destructive, but keeps the immune system lowered.

As with the other decimators of the immune system, damage depends on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

caution sign

There are environmental hazards that wreak havoc on our immune systems. They inhibit the modules of the immune system from proper communications and functionality so that the immune system cannot perform its important work of protecting our bodies from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

Environmental hazards can be the most severe disrupters of immune system functionality. Here are some types of environmental hazards that cause trouble (in no particular order):

  • household products that contain sodium hydroxide, diethanolamine, stearalkonium hectorite, or sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate.
  • asbestos
  • arsenic, especially from cigarettes and arsenic trioxide in some cancer treatments
  • pesticides that contain ammonium or arsenic trioxide
  • nitrogen oxides that are in exhaust fumes
  • formaldehyde and polyfluoroalkyl substances(PFAS) in clothing
  • smartphone metals
  • calcium oxide

These immune-system decimators attack the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

To learn about other immune-system decimators, see the blog post “Immune system decimators”.

***IMMUNE SYSTEM*** 

IMMUNE SYSTEM! These two words should appear in all caps and with marquee emphasis! The immune system keeps our bodies protected and strong. Without protection and strength, our bodies can succumb to viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

The immune system prevents the onset of diseases and aging-related symptoms. When the immune system is strong, autoimmune syndromes are thwarted (before they start), gene-initiated attacks are prevented, emotional turmoil is lessened, and minor ailments are avoided. The immune system, when it is functioning properly, is that powerful!

Here are the major things that decimate the immune system’s ability to protect and strengthen our bodies. They are presented in their order of severity.

  1. Exposure to environmental hazards
  2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body
  3. Sleep that is too little for the person’s age
  4. Holding onto perceived injustices
  5. Constant criticism
  6. Inadequate nutrition (includes inadequate intake of water)
  7. Trivialization of bodily functions (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate)
  8. Fear
  9. Drug-related injury (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs)
  10. Exposure to overly loud sounds (children are especially affected)
  11. Alcoholism
  12. Exposure to people who are ill

Each of these immune-system decimators attacks the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina. In combination, they can overwhelm and defeat the body’s ability to withstand them.

Q&A microwaves

microwave

A friend has asked me to ask Spirit about the microwave. Here are her questions and Spirit’s answers. The list of questions isn’t exhaustive, so if you have questions please add them in the Comments.

Is it ok to use a microwave?

The answer is neither yes or no. A microwave is a tool in the kitchen and it depends how people use it.

If so, what are the recommended guidelines?

  1. In general, any food that is cooked in the microwave for over 10 minutes (without stopping the microwave in the middle) will not be cooked evenly and can cause burns if eaten immediately after the microwaving.
  2. If the door is damaged in any way, the microwave should no longer be used.
  3. The microwave should be placed where children under the age of seven can’t open it, but not so high that food containers are difficult to insert and remove.

Will the food be less nutritious?

No.

Is it OK to use one for heating (as opposed to cooking)?

Yes.

What about flash cooking vegetables?

Vegetables cook better on the stove top when the heat is high and the cooking time is short.

Is it OK to use plastic containers in the microwave, as long as the food contains no oil? Is it OK to cover food with a plastic cover? a beeswax-infused cover?

The best containers for microwaving are glass. The best covers are microwave approved (from a reputable company), paper, and not old (old means in terms of usage: no scratches or tears). No to beeswax coverings and plastics that can melt in a dishwasher.

Is it important to stand some distance away while it is working?

Several factors affect the distance to stand. Older people who are not ill can stand next to it, while ill people or children should stand farther away. The issue is not radiation, but of vibrations that affect blood flow and digestion.

Is it OK to cook porridge in the microwave?

Yes.

How often should one have the MW checked for excessive radiation?

If the microwave is damaged so that the door doesn’t close completely, get a new microwave.

sleep

Sleep is more important that most people think. It isn’t a waste of time or dreaded event. It is the time when our bodies repair, restore, recharge, and reconnect (through dreams). Nighttime sleep is the most important sleep, because our bodies were designed to rest at night for a length of time.

The importance of extended nighttime sleep cannot be overstressed. We don’t have to sleep the entire night without waking up in the middle for the sleep to be successful. We can even wake up five, six, seven times! The main thing is to let the sleep atmosphere remain, and the body will do its repairing, restoring, recharging, and reconnecting.

If you have trouble falling asleep or returning to sleep after awakening in the middle, keep your eyes closed and lie in bed quietly. If you need a bathroom break, take it and then return to bed immediately and close your eyes. Your body will continue its important nighttime work. If you turn on a light, look at your phone or computer, watch TV, read a book, or talk, the nighttime work ceases. Even if you sleep later the next day, the interrupted sleep will limit the nighttime work that was meant to be done.

If your work forces you to stay awake at night, aim to have uninterrupted sleep during the day so that your body can do its restorative work. The repair, recharging, and reconnection work might not be as thorough, but some will take place.

Parents of infants and young children often don’t get uninterrupted sleep. For them, making sure to eat well can help the body stay balanced.
