Out of Town Travel and Sleeping Well Too


By Dr. Lee Parimuha, DC

I went out of town this weekend for a little break and a father daughter trip. What fun!

A friend we were visiting remarked that when he travelled he wouldn’t sleep well the first night.
The second night and then on I imagined he would have great sleep.

I found his comment fascinating. What a relationship we have with our sleep. Changes in beds, pillows and location have their effect. What do we not have on the “first night” of a trip that we find again on the second night? Maybe its change itself. As we all get older we need to change but it gets harder. We are set in our ways some say. I guess they are right, for some. I like to see life and sleep as an adventure needing constant attention so my love of life can shine and shine. I know its an attitude. For sure it has to start with me so my attention and my attitude for deep sleep reflects my zest for life. Kind of a paradox huh? Zest for life and quiet repose.

My friends comment reminds me of a story of when my family and I would go camping for the weekend. My sisters, familiar with the bathroom facilities at home often would hold off the inevitable, going number two, till they returned to surroundings they were more accustomed to. Its funny now, looking back but my sisters feelings of safety, and a sense of familiarity were very important. This sense, and feeling are also important when falling and letting go in sleep too I suppose.
