Activity and rest are not opposites. They are two sides of one whole. One Whole You.
Chances are you are super busy and active right now as the summer is at its peak. But how are you doing with your second half – the stillness?
The easiest thing we can do to reap the benefits of stillness is to improve our relationship with sleep.
It is both the quantity and the quality of rest that impact our energy levels and well-being. Modern lifestyles are destructive to good sleep. Stress, technology, and constant exposure to light all have impacted our ability to rest well.

Passing out at night with exhaustion is not a sign of a good sleeper either.
Therefore, we must be intentional and consistent in our striving for a good night’s sleep.
Here are 4 tips to get a better night’s sleep:
- Resist drinking caffeine after 2 PM
- Avoid artificial light (like cell phones and computers) at least an hour before bedtime
- Meditate, focus on breath, and use mantra before falling asleep, especially if you have a racing mind
- Get 15-20 minutes of sunlight in the morning (it stimulates the sleep hormone melatonin at night)
