Wow, this is a real body/mind/hormones study. How we sleep affects how we see ourselves and how others perceive us. Groundbreaking research showed that poor sleep makes our heart feel poorly, so we experience or perceive less gratitude. Other new studies also suggest that giving time and money to others makes us feel healthier, wealthier, and happier, and may improve our sleep. It seems that how we sleep affects our perception of how we live, and vice versa. We’re all connected. As above, so below; from sleep to sleep affects how we move through our world and attract what comes our way. How do you like that?
