Questions & Answers

Sharon Sanborn, MA, LMHC, ATR-BC, CHT Answers
As an Art and Photo Therapist and painter I have shared the benefits of art-making with many people and seen awesome results. There is so much research and evidence that visual art (not to mention music or other art forms) increase self-awareness, self-confidence and calmness. It also often allows for processing of feelings and emotions as well as opening options and alternative ways of viewing our lives. More information at https://arttherapy.org/ and https://sharonsanborn.com/ Check out https://zentangle.com/ and/or https://www.soulcollage.com/ for fun ways to experience the benefits of visual art-making.

I have heard that taking 3 conscious or aware breaths every hour when you are awake in and of itself changes and improves all aspects of your life! Healthy and natural breathing is when your stomach and maybe chest expand out followed by exhaling and bringing your stomach back toward your spine. Mindfully observing (without a need to change anything) your breath and body regularly is easy and amazing!

My answer is yes, Christa. I have read about and experienced when "oversleeping" more than our normal amount of sleep or more than our bodies actually needs reduces our "Sleep Drive". Low sleep-drive due to excessive sleeping leads to pure quality (shallower, less deep, less renewing and restful) sleep. Solution? 1) decide what is your best "sleep window", meaning how much sleep on a regular basis is good for you (we are unique and some people do better with 7 or 8 hours or more and some people do well on less sleep), 2) sleep this amount and wake yourself up when this period of time is over (although an occasional sleep-in late is great if you feel the need and enjoy it, 3) stick to regular bedtime and wake-up times daily if at all possible. Sleep is a very important part of physical and mental health. Keep in mind sleep is different from rest or relaxation and we need both. All the best SLEEP and RELAXATION to you!
