2008 RBTI Online Class - Special Article On Sleep - June 10, 2008
The below linked article about Americans not getting enough sleep was in the newspaper recently and I just wanted to pass it on to everyone because I know that this is a problem among many and sometimes is the cause behind people not responding to the RBTI program OR the cause behind the program not working AS WELL as IT SHOULD. The article is spot on RIGHT! One statement jumped right off the page:
“Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, obesity and depression.”
I know personally how not getting enough sleep can affect the RBTI program. And I just wanted to pass this article off to my class members so that you all keep this part of “the program” in mind. We emphasize fluids, foods, supplements, exercise, etc. but do we ever emphasize sleep? I can hear Dr. Manthei’s voice loud and clear about what a lot of people need to get well:
” You’ve got to slow them down!!!”
How true! The term “burning out” or “burn out” is LITERALLY TRUE! We are learning about ENERGY in the RBTI, the gain and loss of energy. We have just learned about Einstein’s 3 equations describing HEAT and ELECTRICITY and MATTER. And when we use more energy than we take in, we literally, I mean LITERALLY BURN OUT!!! The fire is too hot for too long, breaking down the matter to the point where there’s nothing left to burn and it happens: BURN OUT!
Lack of sleep may not have ever killed anyone but it certainly helps the dying process move along more quickly. If you and/or the people you are working with are not responding as well as you or they would like, check the sleep habits. Do they go to bed and get up at the same time everyday? And if they do, are they getting at least 7 hours of sleep with 8 being more likely what they need? And, do they take a day off each week to recharge their batteries? Rest is important and sleep is important. It is especially important in the beginning stages of a program and often is the one thing that is hard for people to get into the habit of doing because it is the easiest thing to skip. Anyway, I’m sounding like a broken record. Enjoy the article!
