Whether you’re a parent struggling to keep up with your child’s demanding schedule or a busy couple who’s sleep patterns are out of sync, the statistics show that you are probably all sleep deprived.  As a culture we are chronically exhausted and overwhelmed but most of us don’t think naps are an option.

But as Karen Brody points out in her article, Memo to Moms: It’s Eat, Pray, Sleep, finding a way to give your body and mind the rest it needs is crucial to living a happier and healthier life.  I can’t agree more with much of what she says…

“Sleep is all we need. After my nap I remembered that: (A) I loved myself; (B) I wasn’t a Loser Mom; (C) my kids were terrific (even though Jacob always leaves his socks in the living room); and (D) my husband was a honey (not the evil guy who goes on two week international work trips).

I also remembered how much I loved going to a yoga nidra class when my kids were little. Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of yogic sleep where you lay on the floor and the teacher guides you into a meditative state. It’s that simple.”
