Do You Sleep?
Sleep is essential to you and I. It's one of life's natural givens that will have an effect on the rest of our whole being and health. We spend 1/3 of our life sleeping. In the average life span, experts says this amounts to about 220, 000 hours. This 1/3 of our life makes the 2/3 possible. We simply cannot go without sleep.
Sleep becomes a therapy and counseling issue when there is too much or too little of it in our daily routine. Trouble can block peaceful sleep. Depression, anxiety, grief, fear, and guilt are known contributors to sleep deficits. On the other side, excessive sleep could become harmful too. It may indicate laziness, some mental health condition, or a threat of poverty.
We do all have dreams. But they require some refreshing, balanced sleep for a while.
