Our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives–and even our sex lives. These days, many of the hours you could spend sleeping are often spent studying, working, or raising a family. It’s hard to be the best you can be or enjoy good health when you don’t get enough sleep. 

That’s especially true when you have a big day ahead.

We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, with profound consequences to our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What we need is nothing short of a sleep revolution: only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives and our health. Follow the detailed road map in this video to enjoy the great health that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

According to the many sources I have researched, the inability to get to sleep, stay asleep and/or feel rested is costing business Billions of dollars each year. And poor sleep habits are wreaking havoc on our lives in terms of our health, well-being and ultimately our effectiveness in life.

Mind-Body science research has suggested that the key to most of the things we want in life, whether it’s abundance, career success, health, happiness or enlightenment, lies in a particular state of mind.
Scientists have demonstrated that Alpha and Theta brainwave frequencies are associated with inner levels of mental activity, tranquility, rest, inspiration, accelerated healing, creativity, intuition, learning and memory.

We attain these states of mind during sleep. The question is… how do you achieve this state of mind during waking consciousness?
If you are a Silva Method practitioner, then of course you know the answer. The challenge is to prioritize your time to enjoy daily Alpha breaks.
We’ve all heard the expression that if you have your health, you have everything. Or something like that. And yet even with all the tools at our disposal, many find themselves struggling with poor health, chronic pain, lack of mobility, low energy, etc.
How about you?

You and I both know the immense value of integrating a meditation practice into our lives; however many struggle with making the time and/or getting into that new state of being that will boost the immune system and accelerate healing.

According to the World Health Organization, “Health is the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” It is a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Physical wellbeing is something a person can achieve by enhancing all health-related lifestyle components.
