Poor sleep and restless nights take a tremendous toll on your mental and physical wellbeing. In our busy lives, we are constantly bombarded by stimuli. A busy job, kids, a smartphone that puts us in touch with the whole wide world, high expectations, dissatisfaction, and more than a bit of uncertainty.
All of this causes great amounts of stress. And if you cannot shake this stress at night, it will literally keep you up. In Japan, sleeplessness is tackled with this wonderful technique called ‘moon breathing’. Without cost, it is a simple exercise that works wonders for a great many people. This little trick for falling asleep faster, is described in a book all about everyday, Japanese wisdoms: ‘Kaizen: The Japanese Method for Transforming Habits, One Small Step at a Time’.
The Japanese Kaizen method stand for ‘change’. It promises to improve all aspects of your life, primarily through breaking with lifelong bad habits. It deals with all things from friendships, to excess weight. Writer Sarah Harvey – with her book – hopes to inspire people to live their best lives. And a big part of leading your best life, is getting a good night’s rest.
