How To Make Room For 2024… In Your Living Spaces, In Your Body, In Your Life

  I can think of no better way to set the stage for a brand new year, 2024, to be full of expression and growth than to simplify and declutter at the start of the year.

A new study shows what we can already *feel* — — that trauma in childhood affects our physical health as an adult.     Our cells, organs, tissues, physical body holds on to the effects of emotional trauma and this energetic tension literally changes how our body is able to function. I’ve written previous blog posts highlighting this, how our body’s health is an expression of our emotional well being, in articles such as:   Your Outlook Can Literally Speed Brain Decline (and 9 ways to stop it) Anxiety Doubles Cancer Mortality.

A new medical study shows what we can all intuitively feel — — that when we are in a depression, we truly need deep, restorative sleep to recover.     It’s okay to sleep more when feeling depressed — in fact, a recent study released in June 2017 showed that patients who were medically treated for depression but did not sleep well were three times less likely to actually recover from depression. And sleeping 7 hours or more nightly actually tripled the rates of full remission in depression. Here’s more:   The Study: (presented at the 31st Annual Meeting of
