Festival of Sleep Day

Anyone?

I didn’t think so.

Well, today is the day to make sure to get enough sleep. January 3rd is the annual Festival of Sleep Day. It’s a day to sleep in, go to bed early, or nap.

Getting adequate sleep makes us more energetic and alert, and improves our health. A long-term lack of sleep and sleep disorders can negatively impact the brain and the heart. So grab your favorite jammies or go commando if that’s your thing, turn off the TV and computer, and hit the sack.

Looking for another bonus way to get a deep rest? Try Restorative Yoga. Drop in any Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. at Community Yoga to enjoy a little “adult naptime.” In my Restorative class, we use yoga props to completely support the body in less than a half dozen poses and end with deep relaxation or yoga nidra for a thoroughly relaxing experience.

Namaste,

Debra
