Natural Sleeping and Natural Rhythms

Summer time and the alarms are off. Our lives falls into their own natural rhythms. One little person gets up everyday at 7am. She wakes up chatty, hungry and ready to have some fun. On the other hand, the youngest one stays up till 10pm sleeps till 10 am and only wants a breakfast of fruit or berries.

Freed from the regiment of school they eat every 2 to 3 hours. What do you know? One of the 5 Rules to the Healthyedge Lifestyle program is eating every 2 to 3 hours.

The kids are always bugging me for water too! A large portion does end up on the ground or on each other but they do like to drink. Guess what? Another Healthyedge rule; Drink Water - 80 oz. per day.

Of course they want to be outside. This week the game involves a long wooden plank which alternates between a see-saw, balance beam and slide. Surprise again - another rule. Exercise 45 minutes or 10,000 steps each day.

Our adult lives, based on our intellect, have taken us away from what our hearts and bodies know to be true. No wonder so many of us are depressed, irritable, tired and sick. The Healthyedge program gives us guide lines to re-learn the lessons of childhood. I am so greatful to be a Healthyedge certified coach (#101061). Living the life and sharing it with others.
