Sleep is the most important phenomenon in our daily routine which is often neglected by us. A deep sleep of at least 6-7 hours is incredibly important when it comes to your physical and mental health. It is as important as eating healthy food and exercising.
We can survive without food for nearly a week, we can survive without water for some time but we cannot survive without sleep.
For example in Jainism, once they are in fast they do not have food and water and adjust to natural air, breathing and sleeping. That is their energizing nutrient.
Wondering as to how this is possible?
Sleep is so energizing in itself that if you sleep properly, all your vital and other organs are activated properly. It keeps your mind strong and sound.
Let’s talk about how you can have a sound and deep sleep? You might be sleeping 7 – 8 hours but do you know whether you slept well or not?
Let’s check on these few points:
When you get up in the morning, you are very fresh and bubbling with energy and ready for a new start with a fresh mind. If you happen to be like this, then your sleep has given good energy to you and you have perfect sleep. But if you wake up after long sleeping hours and you feel lazy, lethargic and fatigued, then you have not slept well and you need to do something about your sleep.
You need to work on your subconscious mind. It’s true that your subconscious mind works in the command of your conscious mind, still you can train the subconscious mind to be calm. If your subconscious mind works when you sleep, the sleep will not rejuvenate your organs and you will feel very lethargic. So, it is very important to pay attention to your sleep patterns. You need to visit a counselor and share your concerns as to what is keeping your subconscious mind active the whole night. You need to take control over your mind and it’s not difficult to train your mind. It’s very simple to do that. Some body postures can train your mind to be calm and quiet. The mind and body are strongly related and cannot be separated.
As the mind can control the body, the body can also influence the mind. So, through some body postures, you can influence the mind and can allow it to be calmer and to let it energize the body fully. You can enjoy high spirits everyday.
Let’s not neglect our sleep from today for our well being and for a SMILE life.
Sleep well, stay healthy.
