“Your Health Success” ezine
January 25, 2016
Thank you for opening this ezine... you may not even remember subscribing to this because we began The Health Success Site in 2008 and people have been subscribing to our ezine ever since, but this happens to be the first edition we've sent out. Sorry about that!
It is one of our New Year Resolutions to just get it out there... even if it is not always perfect, we know you will enjoy plenty of helpful health tips and you should be able to learn something valuable with each new edition, as each one will cover different health issues.
So, first of all, we wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year in 2016, and hope that you enjoy reading our magazine as much as we enjoy producing it for you!
(And if you decide to unsubscribe you can just click on the link at the bottom of this ezine, but we'll be sorry to see you go!)

Optimum Health Tip:Stop Using Your Snooze Alarm
During the night, you go through five different stages of sleep -- from lighter to deeper. Toward morning, there is an increase in REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Your muscles relax, dreaming occurs, and recent memories are consolidated in your brain. If your REM sleep is cut short, it could impair your mental functioning during the day.
And that's why it's a very bad idea to delay the start of your day by hitting the "snooze" button on your alarm. Because instead of giving yourself 30, 60, or 90 more minutes of much-needed sleep, what you're really doing is interfering with your REM sleep and making yourself even more sleep-deprived.
According to Dr. Edward Stepanski, who has studied sleep fragmentation at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, a teeter-totter effect of dozing and waking causes shifts in the brain-wave patterns. "Even a subtle noise that doesn't actually wake you up is disruptive enough to affect the sleep quality," Dr. Stepanski said.
"That's why someone who falls asleep with the TV on may wake up exhausted. So, if a person is rousing themselves enough to reset a clock, there's likely to be an even more profound effect."
Article:Tips for Better Sleeping Every Night.
At certain times, insomnia may result from stress.
Some stress is an inevitable part of life, but when you need to achieve a state of inner calm, a range of meditation and visualization techniques can help you work through your insecurities, worries and anxieties.
With practice, stress can be diminished so that it is no longer a cause of sleepless nights.
If you struggle to go to sleep every night of your life, you probably have more than a simple sleep disorder issue to deal with.
It is important to have your life in balance, your health and wellness optimised, and to make sure you have a clear head and calm mind ready for sleep before you go to bed.
If all else fails and you are still awake in the dead of night, try some or all, of these quick insomnia cures:
• Lie on your back with your knees propped up on a small pillow
• Sleep with your head pointing in the direction North
• Get up the same time every morning and go to bed at the same time every night for a week
• Visualize yourself in a peaceful place, such as a field full of wildflowers with a gentle breeze blowing, or near a gently flowing stream where you can see fish swimming past you.
• Visualize a boring scenario, such as a lecture you have no interest in
• Read out loud the names and numbers from the phone book
• Reserve your bedroom and the bed as a place for sleep only
• Wiggle your toes gently until you fall asleep
• Rub your stomach lightly
• Cut up a mild onion, place in a jar by the bed and sniff before retiring.
• Think of ten wonderful things that have happened to you today
• Squeeze all your muscles together tightly for a few minutes and then relax.
• Threaten yourself that “If I am not asleep within the next 10 minutes, I will get up and…” clean the oven, or clean the fridge…whatever you really hate doing… When your brain knows you really mean it - this will scare you to sleep to avoid a nasty chore!

Editor’s Notes & HumorTo be young Again...When we were kids
You lived as a child in the 50s or the 60s or earlier. Looking back, it's hard to believe that we have lived as long as we have...
As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pickup truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
Our baby cribs were covered with bright coloured lead-based paint.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors, or cabinets, and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets. (Not to mention hitchhiking to town as a young kid!)
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. Horrors. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then rode down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times we learned to solve the problem.
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. No cell phones. Unthinkable.
We played dodge ball and sometimes the ball would really hurt. We got cut and broken bones and broken teeth and there were no law suits from these accidents. They were accidents. And No one was to blame but us. Remember accidents? We had fights and punched each other and got black and blue and learned to get over it.
We ate cupcakes, bread and butter, and drank sugar soda but we were never overweight....
.....we were always outside playing. We shared one grape soda with four friends, from one bottle and no one died from this?
We did not have Play stations, Nintendo 64, X Boxes, video games at all, 101 channels on cable, video tape movies, surround sound, personal cellular phones, Personal Computers, internet chat rooms ... we had friends.
We went outside and found them. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or rung the bell or just walked in and talked to them. Imagine such a thing. Without asking a parent! By ourselves! Out there in the cold cruel world! Without a guardian. How did we do it?
We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate worms and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes, nor did the worms live inside us forever.
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment..... Some students weren't as smart as others so they failed a grade and were held back to repeat the same grade.....Horrors. Tests were not adjusted for any reason.
Our actions were our own. Consequences were expected. No one to hide behind. The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law, imagine that!
This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers and problem solvers and inventors, ever. The past 50 years has been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and I learned how to deal with it all.
And you're one of them!
