Sunset can be a time of great distress for Alzheimer sufferers who sometimes recall that it was the time when they travelled home for the evening or waited for a loved one to return.
Patients who experience good safe periods of sunlight during the day seem to fare better than those who remain in gloomy situations. This is self-evident.
Appropriate exposure to sunlight is good for all of use in maintaining a positive mood and outlook. That great star in the sky is the perfect beacon for sustainable mental health. Maybe that is why so many of use welcome the first appearance of the sun in the morning.

Prof John Aitken, Laureate professor at the University of Newcastle in Australia, has found that oxidative stress caused by free radicals can prevent male sperm from fertilising an egg.
Some small studies have suggested that the solution to this problem could be quite simple. A diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables increases antioxidants and can improve male fertility. Thousands of infertile men have become fathers as a result of this simple change in diet.
It could well be that your diet is the primary blockage to having a child and that is why these initial studies prove so promising.

Getting a good nights sleep is sometimes easier said than done. People face so many pressures just getting to and from work that winding down at the end of the day can be a significant challenge. Reaching for a bottle of whiskey doesn’t help either because alcohol has long been known to be the thief of sleep.
Sleep deprivation can often be caused by medical conditions. For example bipolar disorder is very disruptive on sleep because it causes periods of high activity and lows of depression and that combination is not good for restorative sleep.
People who suffer from constant pain or fibromyalgia also find it very difficult to go to sleep and using sleeping medication over the long term can disrupt normal sleep patterns significantly.
I’d like to say that there’s an easy solution to this problem but there isn’t. The best steps to take to get sleep to a level where you can reduce your stress is too readily consult with a medical practitioner that you trust and work systematically through a series of options until you find one that is truly satisfactory.
Fortunately there is a lot of medical research that has been undertaken to assist in getting people to sleep well and this is worthy of discovery and reading.
Take heart from the fact that if you are able to improve your sleep patterns then that could significantly reduce your stress levels.

Often our focus on stress management relates to adult issues and we forget that children can also experience stress from a very young age.
This is particularly so in countries that are ravaged by conflict and suffer from poverty.
I came across a very inspiring story that I would like to share with you about how a soccer ball can transform stress for children living in very rough conditions.
I invite you to read the story which I’m sure you’ll find inspiring and you can find it here.
Maybe you would like to send a soccer ball to some part of the world where it could significantly reduce stress in children.
