Many times when we suffer from pain, we don’t sleep well. The stress of not sleeping well generates new inflammation and new inflammation generates new, additional pain. When we have pain, we don’t sleep well. When we don’t sleep well, we have pain. The answer is to get a good night’s sleep.
A good night’s sleep reduces pain, stress, and regenerates our body to produce healthy cells and hormone levels. There is a disruption of hormones like estrogen and testosterone respectively in females and males that can have dire consequences. We would all do better with 9-10 hours of sleep each night. Our sleep cycle has shortened due to the discovery of electricity. Getting by on five or six hours of sleep, or a night interrupted by pain can harm our health.
A combination of nutrients can be quite helpful improving sleep and reducing pain. Nutrients such as curcumin, boswellia, DLPA, nattokinase, P-5-P, and melatonin support the mechanism of the body to reduce inflammation, pain, and reset the sleep cycle.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
Living with Enthusiasm
The word “enthusiasm” comes from the Greek word “entheos.” “Theos” is God. When you’re enthusiastic, it simply means you are full of God. When you get up in the morning excited about your future, recognizing that day is a gift and go out with a spring in your step, pursuing your goals and passionate about life, then God will breathe in your direction. Studies even tell us that people who are enthusiastic get better breaks. They’re promoted more often. That’s not a coincidence. When you’re full of passion, you have the favor of God.
Remember, God didn’t breathe His life into us to drag through the day. He didn’t create us in His image, crown us with His favor, and equip us with His power to just go through the motions of life. You may have had some setbacks, the wind may have been taken out of your sail, but this is a new day! God wants to breathe new life back into you. If you’ll get your fire back, get your passion back, the wind will start blowing once again. When you’re in agreement with God, He can cause the winds of favor to shift in your direction!
