Relaxation-at-Home newsletter, Issue #022 -- Relaxation in a Down Economy
April 05, 2009

I hope that you, your family and friends haven't lost your jobs. With many large companies having to make cuts, it's not fun to be looking for a job at this time. This is why I decided to use this issue of the newsletter to give you tips to help you relax and sleep better.

Think Positive

While the media does an excellent job at covering all the negative events in your country and around the world, it does not help you relax. If you want to help your subconscious relax and get rid of unwanted stress, you need to turn it off:
  • Don't watch the news. Anything important will be talked about everywhere you go. There is no need to surround yourself with more bad news from 5 to 7 or worse: from 11 to 12.

  • Take a few minutes every morning and every night to list a handful of things that you are thankful for. It could be anything as simple as sunshine, friends and a roof over your head.

  • Imagine having everything you want and feel what it would be like to have it all. Remember that there is nothing preventing you from having it all except negative expectations.


Of course, there are many things you can do to sleep better. For example, you can reduce the noise in your bedroom or get a white noise machine.

You should also have a little bit of food but not too much food in your stomach when you go to bed. A small bowl of cereal may do the trick for you! To read more on what you can do to sleep better, read this page:
