Sleep is such an incredibly important part of a healthy life yet we often forget to appreciate the benefits of a good night’s rest.
We take sleep for granted. And that’s true for most of us – until something goes wrong. But the reality is that very few people sleep well. Most of us seem to wake up in the morning feeling tired and definitely unrested. The consequences for our health and well being have been studied intensively in recent years and we now appreciate more fully the connection between insomnia and depression. In fact insomnia may even be one of the causes of depression.
To test this theory, research has been conducted at Ryerson University in Toronto, focusing on patients suffering from depression and the usual insomnia associated with the condition. Instead of offering prescription medication, the patients received counselling in a series of conversational therapy sessions over a period of eight weeks. The sessions were twice as effective at curing insominia as conventional medication or placebos. When the insomnia was cured, the depression lifted.
This breakthrough in the treatment of insomnia and depression could mark a revolutionary turning point in the way we treat these conditions. As I mention in my recent book on how to sleep well, there are several important principles to apply to the art of a good night’s rest and the researchers at Ryerson advised their patients to follow very similar guidelines: no food in bed, no TV, no reading, no laptops and no mobile phones.
The results have been described as ‘the biggest advance in depression treatment since Prozac’.
If you need better sleep and recognise the importance of real rest and recovery to boost your health and well being, download my comprehensive guide now and learn how to make sleep a natural part of nighttime routine.

Food allergies create too many health problems today and that brings us to the important subject of food intolerance. The main culprits seem to be our old friends wheat and dairy products. The gluten in wheat and the casine in dairy products can produce a whole range of unpleasant reactions. We don’t have to be allergic to these substances. We only need to be mildly intolerant. The effects can accumulate over the course of our lifetime until the body begins to display stronger reactions, eventually leading to a range of avoidable health problems.
The answer is to cut gluten out of your diet for a couple of weeks and see if your health improves. The same approach can be adopted for dairy products. This simple experiment can lead to an overall reduction in allergies, reduce skin problems and inflammatory diseases, improve breathing and, amongst many other benefits, boost your energy levels. If you suspect that you have any food into lerances, take steps today to reduce your intake of potentially allergic foods and increase your well-being. If it’s true that we are what we eat, make today the day that you stop poisoning your body!

Do you get an energy boost from caffeine? Do you ever feel the need to revive your spirits with coffee or caffeine-based drinks? Like many people, I enjoy the taste of good coffee but, if you need a better energy boost, try breathing more deeply and see what happens when you introduce more oxygen into your body. Deeper breathing calms you down, energises your body, improves your thinking and lifts your spirits. And it’s totally free! I’m going to encourage you to breathe more deeply during the next twenty-one days. It’s so powerful, I’m amazed you don’t need a prescription for it.
When you take a deeper breath, remember to keep your throat relaxed. If your throat begins to tense, you’ve filled your lungs as much as you need and you can begin to exhale. If you breathe out powerfully and feel you are really emptying your lungs, you’ll help your body to detox and that will boost your energy and concentration levels. It’s a truly powerful and virtuous cycle. Take a moment to try it right now and notice the difference you can make just by breathing a little more deeply. Try it every hour to awaken and refresh your mind and body. Feel the power flowing through your body. This is nothing more than your natural energy circulating through your system and your body will be smiling in appreciation.

Not a hippy mantra but a powerful insight into human creativity. Cultivating calm in our lives is a hidden and powerful secret that really increases and enhances our creativity. Calm helps us to focus on our tasks without the usual tensions or stress. Most of your stress is completely unnecessary and an obstacle to real progress. Stress is just a habit, a conditioned reflex that you learned in early childhood! A calm mind helps us to broaden our perspective, remain centred and promotes feelings of confidence and a sense of really being in tune with ourselves. The most effective way to bring calm into our lives is to breathe more deeply and more powerfully, slowing each breath until we begin to release our physical and emotional tension and let the calmness bring a deeper sense of peace to our thoughts and feelings. Let calmness become your normal state of being and tap into your deeper layers of creativity.

Do you know your purpose? One of the most helpful and perhaps most powerful dynamics in our lives is having a really clear and well-defined sense of purpose. People with purpose don’t let obstacles get in their way. If you don’t have a purpose, it’s far too easy to drift through life without really knowing what you’re here for. So I’d like you to pause for a moment and ask yourself if you really know what you want.
Don’t rush and don’t be surprised if the answer is ‘No’. Most people don’t really know what they want beyond the demands and challenges of their daily existence. So your first task on this first day of revolutionising your life is taking a moment to reflect more deeply and see if you can work out what you really want. It’s your life here and I’m asking you to choose something worthwhile. It can be one of the most revealing exercises in your earthly existence. It can power you up and become your personal, daily source of inspiration. Take a piece of paper and a pen and write down your conclusions.
Write down whatever you want. The list can include absolutely anything: material goods, wealth, better health, peace, great relationships. It’s your list. You write down whatever comes to mind. It’s a private list. It is not for sharing or for discussion.
When you’ve finished, put the list somewhere safe and let it lie for a few days. Look at your ideas again in two or three days time. Review your list and see if your ideas, plans and goals look different. Feel free to alter, delete or amend anything. It’s your list. Which items really grab your attention? Which items give you an emotional buzz? Those are the items to start with. Now that you know which items are the most important, you need do something, anything, to make them a reality.
Find your purpose. Then move towards it. Right now. The first step is always the most important.
