Suggested spiritual practice #9 - get more sleep

This may seem like an odd spiritual practice but it is one that, when you think about it, can be very soul soothing. Sleep is a way to re-charge our batteries. We can't give what we don't have. When we are drained, burned out, fatigued, exhausted, we cannot find the energy as easily to be kind and loving unless we are kind and loving first with ourselves.

Try it. Get more sleep. See if you don't feel more spiritual.


  1. Just don't sleep in church during the minister's sermon. I've heard that she doesn't like it when people don't listen to her.

  2. Sleep is better than drinking. Drinking can't solve your problems but after a good night's sleep they don't seem so overwhelming. Right?

  3. Thank you, Julie. I'm in recovery and I told my counselor I was sleeping too much. He reassured me that it okay. He said, sleeping is better than drinking and we laughed. Sleeping has helped me stay abstinent. I appreciate your validation.
