Getting Your Vaccine Means Getting Your Life Back [[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]]

Today I had the honor of sitting down with Denise Fair, Chief Public Health Officer for the City of Detroit-Detroit Health Department about the new neighborhood initiative to vaccinate 70% of Detroiters.

We discussed the importance of reaching that goal, how it will allow us to get our lives back and spend time with our loved ones. Fair took us to church as we discussed how our community can perish from a lack of knowledge (It’s in the word y’all, Hosea 4:6), and is glad to be able to share with our listeners that  everyone needs to do their part, and Detroit is doing everything they can to make it easier and more convenient.

I also celebrated my “fully vaccinated day” (two weeks after my 2nd dose) with a dance!

Sleep Doctors Say They Would Never Do This Before Going To Bed

Sleep doctors surveyed by The Better Sleep Council found that there are nine things they wouldn’t do prior to falling asleep. Their answers could be your difference between insomnia or getting a peaceful night’s sleep.

  1. Don’t watch the news before falling asleep – The new stories can cause anxiety or worry making it harder to fall asleep.

  1. Don’t work in bed, you want to maintain the association that bed is only for sex and sleep.

  1. Working Out – Working out in the morning or throughout the day can do wonders for insomnia, however, working out before bed can release energy that keeps them from falling asleep.

  1. Having tense conversations before bed could be keeping you up with negative emotions swirling in your head making it hard for you to wind down.

  1. Drinking caffeine can obviously keep you up at night making sleep harder to achieve.

  1. Drink alcohol – although it can help you fall asleep, it does disrupt sleep patterns later during the night.

  1. Using electronic devices without a blue light filter, blue light signals to the brain to stay awake. It suppresses melatonin that is needed to help you fall asleep.

  1. Bright lights in the room where you’re sleeping also suppress melatonin production.

  1. Spending too much awake time in bed could make you disassociate the bed with sleep. Bottom line: make your bed a sacred, sleeping, and sex only space.
