Example: Get Enough Sleep

How

The National Sleep Foundation recommends getting at least [7] hours of sleep per night. However individuals may differ in their needs. Consider experimenting to find the right amount for you, before setting a target -- get to bed at a consistent time for a week, and see when you naturally awake.

If you struggle to get the right quantity or quality of sleep, here are a few tips that might help you: get to bed at a consistent time; keep your bedroom dark and cool, free of TVs and computers; have a wind-down routine 30-60 minutes before bedtime, involving a quiet activity like reading; and watch use of caffeine, alcohol or nicotine in the few hours before bedtime.

Why

Consistently getting enough sleep is key for optimal functioning, emotional well-being, physical health and overall quality of life.

One in five Americans is sleep deprived, which negatively impacts their quality of life in a variety of ways:

  • Psychological: Lower mood, energy and concentration, and increased risk for depression
  • Social: Decreased ability to enjoy time with friends and family, and unable to handle minor irritations
  • Physical Health: Contributes to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Also increases the risk of motor vehicle accidents, endangering both you and those around you
  • Career: Decreased satisfaction, lower productivity and higher rates of absenteeism

Getting only six hours of sleep per night for two weeks has been shown to impair mental performance on par with legal intoxication (for driving). Bouncing between a little sleep and a lot doesn't work either - trying to "catch up" is not effective, and sleeping too long (greater than 9 hours) can leave you groggy. If you find yourself frequently sleeping too long, it could be a sign of illness.

Make it a priority to consistently get enough sleep.

Health crisis demystified -- the path down

Despite all of our medical innovation, we're sicker than ever before. 75% of healthcare spending is on preventable disease (CDC). We're...

  • Overweight. 2/3 of Americans are significantly overweight, and half of this group is obese.
  • Malnourished. 75% don't get enough fruits & vegetables.
  • Sedentary. 60% don't get regular physical activity, and we on average walk 1/4 of a mile each day, whereas our ancestors walked 10.
  • Stressed. 3/4 of doctor visits are stress-related.
  • Sleep deprived. 2/3 complain of not getting enough sleep.
  • Overstimulated. 1/2 of americans use the web excessively, we watch 5hrs of TV per day, and we're exposed to several thousand marketing messages daily.

How did this happen? Much of it has to do with a series of unprecedented challenges:

  • Processed foods, created during wartime to feed soldiers without refrigeration, typically contain addictive amounts of sugar & salt and lack important nutrients found only in whole foods
  • Desk jobs, excessive media and driving keep us from being physically active
  • The immediate gratification of TV, the web and video games pull us away from building intimacy with family and friends; and
  • Hectic pace and complexity tire us, keeping us from more rewarding pursuits.

These inventions are all new to the last 100 years and appeal to our primordial instincts in unique ways. This overwhelms our ability to self-regulate and make healthy decisions.

We're in this together, it's noone's fault, and we're all capable of change.

Whole life health -- the path back up

"Whole life health" represents a balanced, healthy lifestyle that nurtures physical health as well as emotional well-being.

We often underappreciate how tightly intertwined physical health & emotional well-being are.

  • Strong relationships are the #1 predictor of longevity.
  • A calm mind leads to good decisions across life, whereas stress is inflammatory, contributing to disease.
  • 95% of dieters regain lost weight largely because they don't address the role of stress, difficult emotions and cravings in overeating, food choices and sedentary behavior.

The benefits of whole life health are wide-ranging.

  • Increased energy
  • Calmer mind & reduced stress
  • Better weight control
  • More positivity & joy
  • Increased focus & productivity
  • Greater acceptance, empathy & compassion
  • Protection against illness & disease.

By slowing down and establishing a foundation of balance and healthy lifestyle, our mental energy is freed up to explore the creativity and brilliance we all hold innately as humans. We're also better able to truly connect with the people closest to us, our most important sources of joy and support.

So, is change possible? Absolutely. Research clearly shows that the brain can change at almost any age. Scientists call this neuroplasticity. Other research suggests that almost half of our happiness is within our control. We have all the power to develop new habits and neuropathways. Put simply, we are what we choose to do. Yes, old dogs can learn new tricks :)

As we take the first few steps towards change, a remarkable journey begins. Over time, positive change boosts our self-efficacy and empowers us to make further change. Eventually, change no longer seems so difficult. It becomes expected. Congratulations, you've just taken your life back! Psychologists refer to this as an upward spiral of positive emotions. Others refer to it as flourishing or thriving. But it gets even better -- when we are able to improve our health & happiness, we have a more positive impact on the people around us, which in turn feeds own well-being. It's a virtuous cycle.

As you can see, whole life health is much greater than the sum of it's parts.
