give your body a pause with 5 x 5 Reset detox

The need for a detox

We often eat the wrong things. And we often do that for way too long.  This can lead to build up of toxins and other unwanted, dangerous substances in the digestion tract. These substances can even find their way into individual cells. This “infiltration” of undesirable elements can create the need for a good, thorough detox.

At this point, many people decide to do something drastic about undesirable symptoms:

  • bloated stomach,
  • sluggish digestion,
  • low energy and
  • poor sleep quality

Often that “something” is a harsh detox program that is difficult to adhere to and feel good about. Some detox programs can be damaging to normal body functions, such as metabolism.

taking a nap and napping at work

A study done by recruiting firm Accounting Principals indicates that 39% of American employees are napping at work. The sandman must be working a day job!!! NAPPING AT WORK, TAKE A NAP

But don’t call these people lazy. There are actually potential benefits from taking a nap, such as improved memory, creativity and cognitive ability.

If you are considering napping at work, set an alarm for 20 minutes. Sara Mednick, author of Take a Nap! Change Your Life, says that at about 30 minutes of sleep, we fall into the deepest form of sleep, slow-wave, and we may return to work in a fog. It is hard to adjust back to the real world if we wake in the middle of slow-wave sleep.

You might also look at the reasons why you feel the need for taking a nap. What has your diet been like that day? How much and what quality of sleep did you get last night? Are you on a regular exercise program?

Here are some helpful habits to develop to encourage better sleep that will help to eliminate the need for a nap at work:

☼ Eat a good breakfast with quality protein
☼ Have a midmorning snack that does not contain a lot of sugar.
☼ Make sure your lunch is a healthy one, avoiding beef, pork or other hard-to-digest foods.
☼ Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep each day.
☼ Establish a regular bedtime and stick to it.
☼ Exercise at least 4 times per week. Do this at least 2 hours before your newly established bedtime.
☼ Take time to meditate or just get quiet in your mind for 5 minutes per day.

In general, take good, balanced care of yourself.

Failed New Years Resolutions

Failed New Years Resolutions turned into Successful New Year’s Resolutions

We all know people who make the same resolutions year after year? Or maybe we are that person.

-Have embarrassing failed New Years Resolutions taught you to be quiet and private about resolutions?
-Did it sound good at the time, but you didn’t think it through, or have enough ‘willpower’?
-Were your goals unrealistic and fated to fail?
-Did you think you could immediately overcome a habit that you’ve spent years developing?
-Did life get in the way so you had a good excuse to quit?
-Have you chosen to not make resolutions this year or given up on resolutions altogether? … Is that your trouble, Bunkey?

Well, hold your head up – Because there’s hope this year!  And, studies show, people who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals!
