Optimum Health Tip:Emotional Overeating
Here are three great tips to help you maintain your health and your emotional eating.
First, keep a diary and track what you eat and when. It can be helpful to see what time of day you are craving something certain or when you feel weakest.
Second, try not to deprive yourself of something that you are truly wanting. The longer you force yourself to not have something, the higher the possibility you will over indulge.
Third, you may also want to try calming your stressors. There are a lot of ways to relax and regain control over your emotional eating.

REPORT: "Rules for Reducing Stress and Improving Sleep"
There’s a strong correlation between how much sleep you get and how stressed you are. It’s a vicious cycle that can cause mental distress and even wreak havoc on your physical well-being.
It’s a well-known fact that people who don’t get enough sleep are lethargic and constantly experiencing an energy slump. This causes irritability, which also makes it hard to fall asleep.
The reverse is also true. When you experience an exorbitant amount of stress during the day, it causes you to lie there awake – and that piles on more stress for the upcoming day.
The Huffington Post conducted a poll recently where they asked people what their #1 stressor was. Lack of sleep was one thing that dominated the results. Stress and a lack of sleep combined can cause you to lose mental clarity and they can put more pressure on your body to perform at less than optimal standards.
So it’s vital that you learn how to implement stress relief measures that also work to lull you to sleep at night. When you wake up fully refreshed because you get enough sleep, you’ll be able to tackle the world and anything it throws at you!
Rule #1 - Implement a Bedtime Technology Ban
If you want to toss and turn and have trouble getting (or staying) awake, just keep your cell phone right by your bed. For some of you, that won’t be a problem – but for many people, it’s become an addiction that disrupts their sleep routine and causes a lack of sleep.
Some people have their computer right beside the bed and the glow of it lights up the room at night. Ditto for notifications that come in on cell phones – sometimes with lights and sometimes with the inclusion of sounds.
Not only is it a physical factor, but it causes a certain amount of mental unrest when you’re constantly checking emails or looking to see who posted what on Facebook.
The physical distraction of the computer glow tricks your body into thinking it’s time for you to be awake. Your body won’t produce the melatonin it needs and help you get (and stay) asleep, so you toss and turn all night.
Technology doesn’t just have to be left out of the bedroom – it needs to be shut down quite awhile before you go to bed. Your mind needs time to disconnect and wind down itself, and it can’t do that if you’re constantly feeding it information.
If you go to bed at 10 PM, try disconnecting around 8:30 PMM. Let your stress melt away and your mind relax.
This isn’t an easy habit to break, but you’ll be able to implement it – even if you do it in baby steps, such as not taking it in the room with you, but using it right up until bedtime, and gradually creating a routine that’s beneficial for your health.
Rule #2 – Adopt an Aromatherapy Habit
Aromatherapy soothes your mind and body for both sleep and de-stressing. Scents are a powerful element of our lives, and you can use the power of it to help you feel more rested.
Start off by choosing the right scents for you to unwind, let go of the anxiety the day brought, and get a good night’s sleep. You don’t want anything invigorating for bedtime – like peppermint.
That’s a scent that’s perfect to help you start your day – not end it. You want to look for scents that soothe and relax. Here are some possibilities:
What’s the best way to use these to unwind and get better sleep? You have many options when it comes to aromatherapy. You can find scented bath products (if you enjoy a bath

REPORT: "Rules for Reducing Stress and Improving Sleep" cont:Rule #4 – Let Bath Meditation Boost Your Sleep Count
For some people, bath time is their only time of the day when they unwind and kick stress to the curb. There are no clocks ticking, no technology vying for your attention, and nobody talking to you.
It’s just you, your warm, soothing water, and whatever environment you’ve created to help you relax. The environment for your bath meditation is just as important as the sleeping environment you create.
If it’s off, then you can’t relax. A cold, sterile bathroom won’t lend itself to a calming environment. You can use bath meditation whether you have a 10-minute bath or an hour-long bath.
Some people like to incorporate aromatherapy during their bath meditation – and you can find candles or bubble bath that soothes you with lavender or chamomile or any other scent that calms, rather than invigorates you.
Music is another option for you to consider. You can choose soft, relaxing music – or even invest in some sort of guided imagery CDs that will walk you through a visualization process that helps you meditate while in the bath.
Just as you’ve made the commitment to turn off technology at bedtime, do the same for your bath time, too. You can’t really relax and meditate if your smart phone is ringing off the hook.
Make sure that when you ease yourself into your bath, you start to get familiar with how you’re breathing. Most people go through each day using shallow breathing, and it’s deep breathing that cleanses the stress from your body and helps you sleep better.
Let your mind wash away all of troubles and irritation of the day – picture it washing out to sea – and replace it with whatever the senses are experiencing at that very moment - the warmth of the water, the tranquil sounds, and the feeling of being unrestricted by ties or hosiery.
Everyone’s different with how they meditate. Some like the guided imagery, while others want to have nothing to think about. Some like to use a mantra they can repeat throughout the meditation process. See what works best for you and then use that as your staple for better sleep and less stress.
Rule #5 – Become a Master at Time Management
During the Huffington Post surveys about sleep and stress, they noticed that most people started with phrases like, “Not enough time to…” Time is one thing we need more of and have less of in this day and age.
We have no time to relax. We push ourselves from the time our feet hit the floor in the morning right up until we go to bed – and we never get to bed on time. Instead, we give ourselves a minimal amount of sleep hours – and much of that is spent tossing and turning due to the stress of what all we couldn’t accomplish in the day.
If you’ll get firm with yourself and look at how much time you waste during the day, or how much time you’re not as productive as you should be, then you’ll free up more time for sleep.
Notice that didn’t say, “free up more time to get tasks done.” Many of you will learn new time management skills and forget to learn your lesson about sleep. Instead, you’ll pack in more on your to-do list.
Keep a diary or journal of your daily routine. Notice all the times when you’re surfing the web or standing around chatting with co-workers. That’s time that you could be spending really accomplishing things so that once your day is done, you are rewarded with free time – “me time” – to pamper and nurture your body and mind.
You might also find that when you implement the other rules here, along with proper sleep hygiene, you’ll be able to get more done throughout the day. That’s because your mental clarity improves and you tend to have more energy to tackle whatever the day may bring.

Rule #6 – Allow Deep Breathing to Replace Naps
There are some people who get in the habit of taking a daily nap – primarily because they’ve heard that power napping can help them achieve their goals for the day.
This might be true for many people. But if sleep eludes you, then naps could be causing the problem. A 10-minute power nap where you’re basically just shutting your eyes and deep breathing is beneficial.
Going to bed for 2-4 hours in the middle of the day is a recipe for disaster. You’ll never be able to go to bed at a regular bedtime and you’ll lie there frustrated and annoyed that you can’t go to sleep. It’s a hard habit to break.
Try using deep breathing to energize yourself whenever you’re in an afternoon slump. Breathe from your diaphragm and try to watch how often you’re using shallow breaths throughout the day.
Rule #7 – Focus on Nutrition for Better Sleep and Less Stress
Foods are one area where what you eat can benefit or damage both your sleep and stress levels. If you want to alleviate stress and get better sleep, you need to limit or avoid alcohol and caffeine and eat foods that will help with both!
That means eating good protein like turkey or lean chicken, salmon, avocados, nuts like almonds or walnuts, and apricots (which soothe your muscles). Regular meals are key, too. You want your blood sugar levels stabilized so that you don’t have to deal with mood swings and energy highs and lows.

Warren’s Notes :Well, Stress and Sleep management is very relevant to all of us, all of the time.
However, the past few weeks have been pushing my buttons a bit, so I've found this week's report a timely reminder to check my sleep habits and see if there are any routines I need to clean up a bit.
I'm glad to report from last week's notes that my Mum has settled in to her new care facility, and is happy to be out of hospital and spending time with her friends again.
As Bette Davis said "Getting old aint for sissies!"
This week has been a productive one for me, back home in my country office after time spent staying over in the city. I love my travels overseas and I've been all round the world, (I'll share some stories and photos later) but maybe not so much the city work trips... traffic, pollution, and stress!
So being home again, even if alone (since my wife went on a solo trip overseas) my dog Topaz and I were unsupervised for a few days and loved it.
Fresh country air, cooking our favourite foods and being a pair of boys on the town - LOL!
Which reminds me, Topaz and I are long overdue for a boy's only fishing trip... must make a note to self!
Having a big energetic dog to keep exercised has certainly changed my workout routines!
While I still get to the gym for weightlifting, you can be sure that Topaz never lets me forget his daily run in the bushland near home... and I have to stick to my nutrition supplement regime if I want to keep up with him!
Now that I'm approaching my 60th birthday I'm certainly grateful for the benefits of my nutritional supplements the past 25 years. My doctor has tested me and is astonished by my genetic age readings and overall health check readings!
Remember, any time you want to learn more about anything in this ezine, drop me a line and I'll
email back as soon as I can, and if you leave your phone number I'll even call you back on my dime!
Enjoy my meme below of Topaz... doing what Topaz does - LOL
Have a Laff!Positive Parenting?
As the father of 4 kids (now all grown up) I can relate to some of the parenting jokes that abound!!
"There are times when parenthood seems nothing but feeding the mouth that bites you. "
"Having a baby is like taking your lower lip and forcing it over your head."
"A father carries pictures where his money used to be."
"By time time a man realizes that maybe his father was, right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong."
"Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected."
