Sleep, beautiful sleep.

Where is your safe spot? Where you feel the most relaxed and comfortable? For many of us, it’s our bed! Besides being soft, warm, and comfortable, it’s the place where we lie down to do arguably the most important part of our existence. SLEEP!

Are you missing out?

Sleep is essential to every process in the body, affecting our physical and mental functioning the next day, our ability to fight disease and develop immunity, and our metabolism and chronic disease risk.

Getting good, quality sleep is important no matter your age. It is especially important for young children as their bodies and minds develop. In young children, lack of sleep or poor quality sleep can be associated with difficult behaviors, lower capacity to learn and retain information, and a propensity for poor eating patterns and weight gain.

As we grow beyond childhood and begin entering the stress of adulthood, sleep and mental health go hand-in-hand. Good sleep is essential for maintaining our baseline mental health, as one night of sleep deprivation can dramatically affect mood the next day. Chronic exposure to poor sleep quality is associated with depression, anxiety, and other conditions.

recent article by CNN reveals some key findings on poor sleep and the habit of napping, some people may develop because of it.

“People who often nap have a greater chance of developing high blood pressure and having a stroke, a large new study has found.

This may be because, although taking a nap itself is not harmful, many people who take naps may do so because of poor sleep at night. Poor sleep at night is associated with poorer health, and naps are not enough to make up for that,” said clinical psychologist Michael Grandner in a statement.”

  • “Study participants who typically napped during the day were 12% more likely to develop high blood pressure over time and were 24% more likely to have a stroke compared with people who never napped.
  • If the person was younger than age 60, napping most days raised the risk of developing high blood pressure by 20% compared with people who never or rarely nap, according to the study published Monday in Hypertension, an American Heart Association journal.”

The AHA recently added sleep duration as one of its eight essential metrics to optimal heart and brain health.

There are plenty of things you can do to help improve your sleep. We’ve found creating a solid sleep hygiene routine is an excellent start- Good sleep hygiene is all about putting yourself in the best position to sleep well each and every night.

An excellent addition to your routine would be introducing LunaGen! Taken in the evenings to help you relax and prepare for sleep, LunaGen can also help you stave off evening food binges*.

A happy ending story

I knew my sweet friend looked way younger than her years, but I hadn’t seen her for 6 months or so when we went on a trip together. She looked so young and radiant, I had to ask – “What’s your secret, girlfriend?”

She told me it was ‘pantyhose for her face’, and we both laughed, but her skin was so radiant and smooth, I just had to have her get me some immediately! A week later, I received my package in the mail and learned more about not only this amazing serum and complementary products, but also how to look younger from the inside out! I was hooked, and I started on my own journey to look and feel younger and vibrant.

That was my first experience with her company. While I came to love the products, I was content building a business at a different company and had no interest in making the switch. Over time, I saw what this company and the Referral Marketers were building. The unique compensation plan includes a patented model to generously compensate distributors who are brand new as well as experienced networkers! In fact, the start-up bonus program is actually over the top!

She invited me to travel to her company and see for myself. I was impressed, and knew I had to make the move. One tool especially intrigued me. I was in a meeting with my friend and the owner/CEO of the company, when she asked me about my current company. I shared what I thought were pretty good stats, then she did some calculations and showed me what I would be making with this company – and the same number of reps. I was floored and made the switch.

Fast forward 10 years (yes, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary this next year) and after what we have experienced world-wide in 2020 and 2021, more and more people are paying attention to their health and the consequences of our western habits. I learned how every product this company sells has scientific data backing it up – and how we have science beyond testimonials that are shaking up the health and wellness industry.

This industry allowed me to trade in my salary for true financial and time freedom. Even though I was a network marketer, I was hustling to earn a leveraged paycheck that was slowly growing, but took so much time. There were constant parties, workshops, and hundreds of hours on the phone.

Since coming on board with this company, I don’t do those things anymore. We build differently using referral marketing and a duplicatable system, unlike anything I’ve ever seen! I finally have my life back. I can spend more time on my hobbies, travel, and be there for my friends and family.

“And it doesn’t matter whether you want to do this full time, or casually share the products with friends. I’ve seen people succeed by gaining customers and getting people excited for our results-driven products.”

I’m so grateful to this industry and this company for not only helping me find success, but my team as well. They are creating a leveraged income for them and their families and becoming better versions of themselves every day.

“I’ve come to learn that life is way too short to be working for someone else’s dreams. We have to get out there and live our best lives; This industry helps us do that.”

Sleep for the “health” of it!

6 Tried and True Tips for Sleep, Beautiful Sleep!

Though our 24/7 society may not place a high priority on sleep, adequate rest has never been more important. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sleep problems are a national epidemic, with 30 percent of adults reporting that they get less than six hours of sleep on an average night. Insufficient sleep is linked to a myriad of health problems, like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. If you’re one of the millions of Americans having trouble getting enough sleep, here are some tips you can try.

Build Exercise into Your Daily Routine
Exercising too close to bedtime can make it difficult to fall asleep. But getting some exercise earlier in the day has an opposite effect and will actually help you sleep better. The National Sleep Foundation reports that exercise is especially beneficial for people who have sleep disorders, with even a single session of aerobic activity reducing the amount of time it takes to fall asleep for people suffering from chronic insomnia and improving overall sleep quality. The good news is that it isn’t necessary to get intense, athlete-level exercise, either: the benefits were seen from moderate-intensity aerobic exercise.

Ditch the Late-Night Snack
After a long day, nothing seems quite as comforting as a dish of ice cream while watching the late show. But in addition to wreaking havoc on your waistline, it turns out that eating too close to bed can disturb your sleep, too. Your body has to work to digest whatever you eat. If you’re truly hungry, have a lighter and easier to digest snack instead, like a piece of fruit.

Nix the Nightcap        
When it comes to sleep, alcohol is the great paradox. Because a drink can often take the edge off and make you feel more relaxed and sleepy, it seems logical that it would help you give you a better night’s sleep. While a review of 27 studies concluded that alcohol does indeed help users fall asleep more quickly, it results in poorer quality sleep, so you are less likely to feel well rested and refreshed in the morning. The negative effects are even more pronounced if you consume more than one drink.

Beware the Blue Glow        
Most of us spend the majority of our day in front of electronic screens, whether it’s our computer at work or our smartphones. Our bosses often expect us to bring work home, and then there’s the ever-present lure of Facebook. Even seemingly harmless pastimes like watching TV can disrupt sleep. But sleep experts say that exposure to the blue glow of electronic screens before bed contribute to poor sleep, in part by blocking our body’s release of sleep-promoting melatonin. Turn off the electronics a couple hours before bed and read a book instead to promote healthy sleep. 

Manage Your Stress
Stress is the biggest bugaboo of modern life. Between busy schedules, money worries and unsettling stories on the news, it’s no wonder that we find it difficult to relax. Not surprisingly, that high stress level also leads to difficulty sleeping and evening binge eating. Managing your stress has multiple benefits, though, and not just for sleep. Lower stress levels lead to lower blood pressure, a stronger immune system and decreased risk of diseases. Try relaxing habits like meditation, prayer, yoga or journaling. 

Our favorite way of addressing stress and night time binge eating is LunaGen.

LunaGen helps you fight back against those nighttime cravings by reducing stress and suppressing appetite*… without harsh stimulants, dangerous chemicals or habit-forming sleep aids. And unlike ordinary diet pills, LunaGen won’t wear off right about the same time that the nighttime binge-eating cycle is kicking in. It’s perfect for anyone whose diet keeps failing because of out-of-control nighttime binging.

Improving your sleep habits does take a little bit of effort and self-discipline, but the rewards of a better night sleep will help you stay healthy and age-proof.

Build a Better Brain at Any Age!

I really enjoyed this book from Sanjay Gupta – I have followed his Documentary on Chasing Life, and the idea of being able to grow new brain cells and Keep our brains Sharp is fascinating to me!

From the neuroscience research world and the global council on brain health, studies now show that you can build new brain cells. This wasn’t always the belief – they used to think there were only two times in your life when new brain cells developed. As a new baby, or after a traumatic brain injury. Scientists have now found that is not the case. There are places in the world that have little or no dementia. So much of dementia can be addressed by lifestyle – which is a very inspiring thing.

The three main things you can do to build your brain are as follows:

  1. Move – humans were designed to be moving continuously. The connection between physical fitness and brain fitness is clear, direct, and powerful. Moderate walking numerous times during the day releases neurotrophic factors when you move.
  2. Sleep – Scores of well-designed studies routinely show that poor sleep can lead to impaired memory and that chronic stress can impair your ability to learn and adapt to new situations. You need to get at least seven hours of sleep a night which is the bare minimum if you want to have normal, healthy functioning physiology from your brain on down.
  3. Nourish – By eating some foods and limiting others, you can preserve your memory and brain health. In the Blue Zones, people typically eat a big breakfast, a medium lunch, and a small dinner. For the healthiest diet – think SHARP. Slash sugar, Hydrate, Add natural Omega-3 fats, Reduce portions, and Plan what you are going to eat!

Discovering and connecting are key as well and we will go over those pillars in another conversation.

According to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, author of “Keep Sharp – building a better brain at any age”, “Never forget that the brain is exceptionally plastic. It can rewire and reshape itself through your experiences and habits, and a lot of this remolding can be achieved in a mere twelve weeks. It’s like building any other muscle.”

Terry before and after

Well, Cher’s song is more about love and regrets, but I have no regrets about taking charge of my health and looks 4 and a half years ago when I Found My Limitless!

My good friend Pam kept telling me about this new company called Limitless Worldwide that was in pre-launch and she was involved. After a bit of research, I decided to give their products a try.

The first product I started taking was Thrive-hgh, a human growth hormone antecedent. Thrive-hgh is taken on an empty stomach at bedtime (preferably). That first night, I experienced really deep sleep and vivid dreams – and I was hooked. Without any effort from me, I lost 20 lbs my first month on Thrive-hgh, and over the course of the next year, effortlessly dropped a total of 50 lbs, and more importantly, kept it off!

The most dramatic change, however, was to my skin. Limitless’s skin care category is called Ageless and has only 3 components. Gentle, ph-balanced CLEANSE, deep-wrinkle serum RENEW, and the powerful stem-cell compound SMOOTH. The results from this magnificent trio are a dramatic reduction of wrinkles, dark spots, sagging, increased moisture, even tone, and life.

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? Get your sexy back.

 

 

My First Miracle Morning!

keep-calm-theres-always-tomorrow-7Well, today I started a practice that I joined with a friend. She asked me to be her accountability partner – and I accepted. I got the book (The Miracle Morning), read most of it over the weekend and last night chatted with her and decided to get up an hour earlier this morning and get started!

I didn’t exactly jump out of bed when my alarm went off, but I did get up, brushed my teeth, splashed water on my face, and headed out to the porch to get started. It was chilly, so I put on my hooded sweatshirt, warm socks, and grabbed the fleece blanket I keep there for mornings like these – and settled in to start reading and following the plan.

That’s worked for a bit, but all tucked in like that, I started to get incredibly sleepy. I was determined to follow the protocol, but found myself – almost exactly an hour later – waking up from my nap! Oh well, I did the relaxation part well – and there’s always tomorrow!
