Alternative Sleep Cycles: 7-10 Hours Are Not Needed The average person requires 7-10 hours of sleep per night according to the National Sleep Foundation. But is it possible that using different sleep cycles, where the benefits of sleep are still achieved, we can sleep less? Much less? Most of us are familiar with what is called a monophasic sleep cycle. This cycle is used by most people as it’s what we hear about and learn the most. For some, this cycle is practical although inefficient. Fact is, there are 4 other sleep cycles that can provide all the benefits of sleep, while sleeping much less. Not only that but sleeping has always been something I wish I could do when I felt like it and not because I’m ‘supposed to.’ if I could spend less time lying awake at night trying to sleep, then great. The Monophasic cycle consists of various stages of sleep with REM (rapid eye movement) being the most important. The Dymaxion cycle is said to be the most difficult as it can only be successfully used by certain people. How will you sleep?
Letting Go the Old Well, it's happened. You have taken the first step in making a change. Whether your change came unexpectedly or was carefully planned, the figured-out flow of your daily life has been disrupted. Change is the 800-pound gorilla that you can try to ignore, but, eventually, it will come and sit on your chest, look you in the eye, and thump your head loudly to get your attention. Consider that no matter the circumstances, you are not at the mercy of change. The change process has three steps: letting go the old, attracting the new, and determining next steps. Emotional range is the ability to appropriately engage the emotions on the contracting side of the emotional scale (fear, anger, frustration, etc.) as well as the expanding side (happiness, love, well-being, trust, etc.). Think of a heart monitor. Don't think, however, that you must always be a victim to your highs and lows. Life is not about control. Your emotions offer you tools to sort things out. Express your feelings.
Safely Detox Fluoride From Your Body As many people already know the commonly used sodium fluoride is extremely toxic, and contrary to mo... As many people already know the commonly used sodium fluoride is extremely toxic, and contrary to most “medical professionals” it is not good for the human body. But if you have become health conscious and stopped drinking fluoridated water, your good right? Yes and No. If you were raised in a community that fluoridates the water, it has built up in your system. Sodium fluoride is an accumulative poison. If you are like me, born and raised in a fluoridated city, it has built up in your body. That is a very complicated question. Number one of course is to stop fluoride exposure as much as you can. Second is to start using a sauna regularly. Third, getting enough sunlight daily plays a large role in detoxing the pineal gland. Fourth is getting enough exercise (which also helps regulate melatonin production). * 1 thick slice of lemon* 1 piece of fresh ginger, 2/3?
6 Fun Ways to Sharpen Your Memory Have trouble recalling your second-grade teacher's name, or even just what you ate for dinner last night? If so, that's natural: Both long-term and short-term memory tend to worsen as people age. The more neuroscientists learn about this process of decline, however, the more tricks they've uncovered for how to slow — or even reverse — the process. Here are six such tricks for lifting your cognitive fog. Wake up and smell the rosemary Scientists have found that aromas can profoundly affect people's cognitive abilities. As it turned out, those in the rosemary-infused cubicles demonstrated significantly better long-term and working memory than those in the unscented cubicles, while those in the lavender-scented cubicles performed worse than the others in tests of working memory. If you need your brain to perform at its best, you can try placing a rosemary plant on your windowsill but, unfortunately, you ought to avoid stopping to smell the lavender.

8 Sleeping Positions & Their Effects On Health In what position do you sleep most often? It turns out this is a very important question. Getting enough sleep is the most important thing – but did you know that how you sleep can also impact your health? Sleeping on your back with your arms at your side is generally considered to be the best sleeping position for spine health and it's good for your neck too, as long as you don't use too many pillows. That said, back sleepers tend to snore more than those in any other position and sleep apnea is strongly associated with sleeping on the back. Let's take a look at eight common sleeping positions and what they do to your body: Learn More: Credits:Daily Health Post - Memolition
Find Your Strengths, Understand Your Weaknesses We all know intuitively that people have different personalities. Some people are extremely social, while others like spending long periods of time alone. Some people seem like counselors, so good are they at listening to their friends' travails, while others talk incessantly about themselves with no curiosity as to how someone else might be feeling. One of the ways you can find the kind of work you are meant for is by figuring out what your personality type is through an objective measure. For example, I am an introvert, which means I draw energy from being alone, whereas an extrovert draws energy from being around people. If you're totally unsure of what you need to be doing, taking a test like this can help you at least figure out what you definitely are NOT cut out for, or what you should give serious consideration before diving in. You say you already know your personality? I'm an INFP.
The Four Temperaments David Keirsey's temperament theory extends the scheme laid down by Hippocrates, Galen, and Kretschmer. The 16 temperament and personality types described in PTypes are classified in groups of four under Ernst Kretschmer's hyperesthetic, anesthetic, depressive, and hypomanic temperaments. According to the Encyclopï¿½dia Britannica, in psychology, temperament is the aspect of personality concerned with emotional dispositions and reactions and their speed and intensity; the term often is used to refer to the prevailing mood or mood pattern of a person. The notion of temperament in this sense originated with Galen who developed it from an earlier physiological theory of four basic body fluids (humours): blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile. Adapted and modified from table in David Keirsey. (1995). * Adapted from Crown Financial Ministries. * Adapted from: Littauer, Florence. (1995). Ernst Kretschmer More on the temperaments

End a Codependent Relationship the Healthy Way | Mindful Construct It’s not a good idea to label yourself codependent, unless you plan to do something constructive about it. Because labels don’t empower you; they reinforce the undesired effect. Codependency is, however, a label of our time. Codependency is so ubiquitous that first of all, it’s hard to recognize.

It’s natural to go back and forth between self-education and self-honesty; each informs the other. 3. You need to use the label wisely to ensure that you’re being constructive with it. Hints for determining if a relationship is codependent Codependent relationships are virtually everywhere. Here are twelve signs that you’re relating to someone in your life codependently: You feel like you cannot live without the other person.

The Magic Formula for Expressing Hurt Feelings If we could all just be more emotionally honest with ourselves and others, the world would be a much different place. Sounds easy, right? Then why is it so hard?!? Well, being straightforward about your feelings is a challenge when you grow up in a culture that polarizes emotions as out to get you and paints them as the take-down of your logical, rational mind (which is an irrational fear). But no matter how dysfunctional your cultural programming is, you can still reprogram your beliefs about emotions and their role in your life. This formula is good for you You’ve probably already learned from elementary school about the easy way to express your feelings without putting anyone else on the defensive in a mean way. It’s a magic formula helps you put your feelings back into perspective by reminding you that: The formula is: I feel this when you do that. Or, for when you need to try extra hard to get the other person’s attention: When you do that, I feel this. Change the world with magic ShareThis
