Sleep Well: A “Friend to Yourself” Resource
by Sana Johnson-Quijada MD (Author)
In a culture that demands our time, our attention, and our energy 24-7, sleep has gotten a bad reputation. A full night of rest can feel like a weakness, an indulgence, something selfish. But sleep, says Dr. Sana Johnson-Quijada, is critical to our mental and physical health. And when we are not getting enough quality sleep, our lives suffer. Dr. Q explores the reasons why we sabotage healthy sleep patterns, identifies our unique sleep temperaments, and offers practical, positive, and achievable goals for sleeping better. From a daily sleep log to the 12 Rules of Sleep Hygiene, readers will walk away with the motivation and tools to get the rest they need.

What have you been doing in the space of your get-to-choose time?
“Taylor Swift is a rock star!”
The girl was in awe. She had written versions of this all over her paper in various star-quality designs. Everything was about Taylor Swift. I was watching her at the park and drifting among my own thoughts, when her father leaned over and said, “Now write, Susan is a rock star.” Young TS-Fan, alias Susan, looked up with an expression capturing a combo of wisdom with a big flip-off. My thoughts were not adrift. She was my interest. She was a star.
And so was her dad! What a guy!
Think about what your temperament gave you. Think about what you like most to do, what your thoughts noodle when you aren’t “thinking.” Is there someone who emulates the “star?” Write that person’s name down in a bumper sticker statement. Now write your own name in another. You are peers. Meet your cohort.
Susan’s dad had it going. Be productive at any age. Know that you have something to offer. You have valuable stock. Put you name out there, where ever that is.
Christian is a brilliant gardener. Mindy is being her real self all the time. Craig works words in classic timeless style. You are a star.
Self-care tip: Put your name into print.
Question: What are you a star at? Please tell us your fabulous story of self.
