Week 3: Sleep

RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL ON EXERCISE

I was totally surprised that 40% of those who took the poll said that they do all three components of fitness:  cardio, weight bearing and flexibility exercises.  That is really impressive and encourages me to put some flexibility exercises into my own program.  Hopefully, the results of the poll will be also benefit you by either maintaining your current fitness program or adding to it.

JOKE OF THE WEEK

A woman woke up and told her husband, “I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for our anniversary. What do you think it means?”

He said, “You’ll know tonight.”

That evening, he came home and gave a small package to his wife.

Thrilled, she opened the package and found a book entitled “The Meaning of Dreams.”

WEEK 3 : SLEEP – START YOUR DAY AFTER A GOOD NIGHT’S REST

SELF-HELP BOOKS

I wrote my book out of respect for the busy person who doesn’t have a lot of time for reading and also to reach out to people who aren’t really into reading.  I wanted the book to not only be an easy read, but also entertaining so I didn’t go in-depth on the various traits.

My Final Cover

I want to use this blog to suggest other self-help books that do go into more detail about a particular trait that I have covered in my book.  Cameron Diaz’s The Body Book, in Chapter 22 has some excellent information on the benefits of adequate sleep and the science behind those benefits.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Although I suggested a more recent movie in my book, this 1993 movie, Sleepless in Seattle is a classic.  I thought it was particularly appropriate to mention it since the man’s son makes his request for a wife for his father on a Christmas Eve radio show.
