People often ask me if I sleep and this is proof I do. This is a Night Blooming Cereus and the blooms are spent by daylight. I knew it was going to bloom, and never has it shown three blooms at once, yet I slept right through the drama. I use to be a total failure at sleeping and then I heard a talk about the damages caused by sleep loss.
The most remarkable evidence is that the brain cleans itself while you sleep! ...and a dirty brain is a vulnerable brain. Protect your brain, sleep well and don't worry when you miss the drama. It's World Mental Health Day, give your brain some love.
One of my very favorite things about eating a ketogenic diet is that I can trust my body. BUT that doesn’t mean I always listen. My body has been telling me for the last few weeks to slow down. That I was taking on too much. That I need more margin. But I’ve been struggling to really truly listen. I tried some half measures, trying not to make the hard decisions. And guess where it landed me! Involuntarily in bed most of the day today. Don’t make my same mistake, friends. Your body knows what it needs. Don’t ignore what it’s telling you. Nourish it well. Drink enough water. And for the love of all that’s holy, get enough sleep!!! . . . . . #listentoyourbody#nourishyourself#sleepwell#eighthours#intuitiveeating#healyourbody#takecareofyou#resting#margin
