GOOD SLEEP

=

GOOD HEALTH It’s estimated that sleep issues affect 40 million people. Lack of sleep can contribute to medical conditions such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Practicing good sleep habits in these areas can help you get a better night’s rest: PREPARE YOUR BODY • Avoid stimulants, like caffeine, nicotine and alcohol for at least six hours before sleep. • Get regular exercise, just don’t do it too to close to bedtime. • Avoid eating a heavy meal just before bedtime. • Wake up around the same time every day. PREPARE YOUR MIND • Avoid stressful television programs before bedtime. • Make a list of home and work to-do’s so your mind doesn’t have to worry about them. • A good bedtime routine produces a calming ritual, shifting your mind to pre-sleep mode. • Don’t stay in bed for more than 15 minutes if you can’t fall asleep. Get up and perform a non-stimulating activity like reading. • Practice self-hypnosis to easily and effortlessly fall asleep. PREPARE YOUR ENVIRONMENT • Never read, eat or watch television in bed. • Darken your bedroom. • Noise can negatively affect sleep. Use a CD or App for white noise, such as ocean waves or softly falling rain. • Remove distractions. Turn away the clock, turn off phone chimes. • Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillow. • Most sleep better in a cool room with warm covers than a warm room with light covers. • Make your bedroom inviting and cozy, free from light, unpleasant noise, smells and stress. As you become more relaxed before going to sleep, fewer neurons fire in your brain, creating an increase in Alpha and Theta brain waves. Using self-hypnosis before going to sleep stimulates Alpha and Theta brain waves, allowing you to be more receptive to positive suggestions that you give yourself. Learning how to purposely use this natural state of mind can help you experience a better quality night’s sleep, improving your health and sense of well-being.

NATURAL RESOURCES, THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 400 NATIVE BEE SPECIES IN MINNESOTA. Because of the diversity of bees, it is important to provide an array of plants to support their pollination efforts. WHAT IS POLLINATION? Pollination occurs when pollen is moved within flowers or carried from flower to flower by pollinating animals such as birds, bees, bats, butterflies, moths, beetles, other animals, or by the wind. WHAT DOES POLLINATION DO? The transfer of pollen in and between flowers of the same species leads to fertilization and successful seed and fruit production for

The Doctor’s

Your journey begins with a visit to a warm, inviting, and welcoming place, The Doctors House, where health is in and wellness (and the Doctor) is always home.

A woman’s role in today’s society is the product and result of dramatic changes over the past few decades and that role continues to be redefined and grown. Women are professionals, providers, mothers, daughters, sisters and logistical coordinators. With all these positions and responsibilities, it is increasingly important (and sometimes difficult) for women of any age to lead positive and healthy lives. According to Dr. Adepero “Addie” Okulaja of The Doctor’s House, an important first step for a woman embarking on the journey towards health and wellness involves thoughtfully selecting a primary care physician and health team for herself. Dr. Okulaja’s approach to internal medicine recognizes that each individual is unique unto herself and that the mind, body, and spirit are interdependently connected – meaning that factors positively or adversely impacting any one of these three prongs can have implications for the others. This philosophy is embodied by Dr. Oklulaja’s holistic and highly individualistic approach to her medical practice. Getting to know her patient’s as people and the lives that they lead as individuals is a strong benefit to a better understanding of the standard factors such as previous medical history, symptoms and medications. The holistic approach leads to a better understanding of the “whole person” with a strong focus on the individual and the life that a woman leads. Dr. Okulaja identified healthy eating habits, adequate sleep, and regular exercise as important factors as building blocks in leading a healthy lifestyle for a woman today. However, she further discussed that maintaining a strong support system, positive self-image, healthy outlets for diffusing stress, and self- care are also salient variables to address in the context of maximizing an individual woman’s healthy lifestyle. Dr. Okulaja identified a number life-stressors that she has observed among many of her female patients. These include and are not limited to relationships, finances, body image and “trying to do it all”. By simultaneously addressing areas of medical concern as well as collaborating with patients to implement incremental lifestyle changes targeting areas such as self-image, self-care and coping with stress, Dr. Okulaja can assist women as individuals with a medical relationship that embodies a process that has complete focus each woman as the individual that she is. A passionate foundation of Dr. Okulaja’s practice is to assist women in making lasting and meaningful changes in their lives.
