Sleep – the Foundation of Wellbeing and Longevity (Part I).
There are two fundamentals: sleep and breathing. Combining these with good nutrition, regular exercise, resting time and healthy relationships, is the key to better and healthier aging, strong immunity and overall longevity. When did you last enjoy a deep sleep and how did it make you feel? A good night’s shut-eye can make you cleverer, more amenable, help you maintain your weight, and generally help you to be happier and healthier. Sleep is so powerful that it can help stave off dementia and depression. Sleep and wakefulness govern everything about our mental and physical heath. In this article, I will not only cover what is useful about sleep but also how you can improve the quality of your sleep so that you can be more focused, alert and emotionally stable when you are awake.

According to a recent study conducted by Ohio State University sociologists, members of Gen X and Y (1981–1996) are aging badly. This is seemingly due to increasingly sedentary lifestyles and the consequences that come with it, as well as rising drug and alcohol consumption. The inactive, deskbound lifestyle is affecting many of us while we work and “play” behind a screen for several hours per day, over many years. Find out why it pays off to listen deeply to yourself and those you have relationships with. Listening deeply, and in a non-judgemental way, is a true skill that is valuable on so many levels.
