How to Get Rest? Pretend You’re Sick

Most of us know that if we don’t receive enough rest, eventually we’ll get sick. Current research has informed us that continual sleep deprivation might make us vulnerable to cancer. So how do we find the time to rest when life calls otherwise? We can “pretend” we’re sick. Yes, I know, we’re still stuck in the psychology of the, “Good work ethic,” “Super Mom/Dad,” and, “Just do it,” but when it comes to the all-important topic of rest, ignore the slogans and come up with others, “We only love others as much as we love ourselves,” “Stop and smell the roses,” and “Our body is a temple of God”. So when you find yourself feeling guilty for resting and your mind screams words like, “Slacker” and “Lazy,” just remember that if you don’t rest, your body will get sick and MAKE you rest, so “pretend” you are a bit under the weather, curl up in a pile of cushions and rest. YOU are the keeper of YOUR body and YOU deserve it. Suellen Ocean is the author of Poor Jonny’s Cookbook. Available here:

Is Your Life a Nightmare? Try Ditching the Sugar… No Kidding

We all have quirks. Some of us obsess over little things, have insomnia, insecurities, addictions… nobody’s perfect… we all have flaws… blah, blah, blah. Try going without sugar for a month and see what happens. Read your labels and be honest with yourself. I’m not big on sugar, I seem to do OK with a very small amount and honey agrees with me but I’ve discovered that my mind and body don’t like much more than a tiny bit of sugar. There are plenty of studies out there about the dangers of the highs and lows of sugar. I wouldn’t be surprised if sugar creates millions of unnecessary dramas, incarcerations, hospital stays and divorce. It is a strong substance and needs to be considered seriously. Think you’re crazy? Try ditching the sugar and let me know how it works out for you.
