Dear Taichung Happiers,

This Sleeping Beauty is not skin deep.

Do you get along with your “Clocks”? Do you sleep soundly with or without your alarm clock? Yes or no, why or why not, your internal clock concludes everything. You are so blessed, if your internal clock and alarm clock get along. This topic reminds me of how my favorite teacher became my favorite teacher. A repeating scenario occupies almost the first one-third of a story—to win a world competition, a I-don’t –know-its-name world competition, a little boy has to spend most of his time on practicing opening a door as many times as possible within one minute. I didn’t understand why this single simple sweep should weigh so heavily in this story, until my teacher smiled and suggested that opening the door symbolizes “Life”. Now, while following the enlightening instruction from American essayist, lecturer, and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882)--“Health is the first muse, and sleep is the condition to produce it”--I would like to suppose “Dream” is the Gate of Life, and, Sleep, the Fountain of Life, lies in front of the Gate. Dear friends, welcome to join our host Kevin Liu in apprehending and appreciating the importance and implementation of sleep.

[url]Life is but a dream? Nope? “Your future depends on your dreams, so go to sleep.” Dream is life; sleep is life. No matter how many hours you sleep every night, sleep covers more than one-third of your life time, because sleep is the most crucial component of both your physical and mental health. High-quality sleep helps re-organize stress, restore energy, and repair support structures in brain. (Likewise, Koalas sleep 20 hours a day for the energy strategy!)
[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHDkndeP6WM[/url] Sleep, the Fountain of Life, is the most delicious travel destination, which has more lovability. When the Fountain of Life is not visited as often as possible, the surrounding trees—immune system, memory, and metabolism rate—won’t flourish with full and fitting growth. As a result, sleep does decide how blue your sky is—how high your school/work performance, emotion intelligence, and interpersonal connections will fly. Go ahead to find the treasures under the Fountain, the benefits of a good night's sleep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gedoSfZvBgE&app=desktop Oh, yes, perhaps, the Sleeping Beauty will advance something other than what American actress and comedian Mindy Kaling affirms: "There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.” However, another fabulous fiction can also encapsulate the ingredient that waking up unexpectedly earlier can induce an intriguing journey for this sleeping beauty before the “happily ever after” inaugurates. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BWWWQzTpNU

Best alarm clock in the world is your Mom? Beyond doubt, “If you ask her to wake you up at 7, she wakes you up at 6 saying it’s 8…………” Well, a two-time world champion and an Olympic gold medalist, American former professional boxer George Foreman had another reliable clock. "I think sleeping was my problem in school. If school had started at four in the afternoon, I'd be a college graduate today." Oh là là! Please confirm these two systems composing your internal clock. http://healthysleep.med.harvard.edu/interactive/circadian Furthermore, you’ll have a Puzzle Alarm Clock if your internal clock and work/school clock don’t get along. How to put all the pieces back into their matching places to see the precise picture of the Fountain? Hummm…..this proposition has puzzled numerous doctors and scientists. https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2015/01/not-everyones-internal-clock-is-set-for-the-9-to-5/384398/ Above all, sleep, the Fountain of Life, is like a classroom without walls; therefore, never underestimate the openness of the Fountain. When your family members have their very own clocks, just draw back the curtains and display the definite delight. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hHdhhFpy3Y

Who needs sleep when you have a good book? American author Elizabeth Ann Patterson asked. All right, no worries. The sleep-awake cycle is actually the mind-body-spirit cycle. Among the mountainous methods to improve sleep quality, I believe the long-lasting light reflection on the Sleep Fountain water is Mindfulness Meditation. http://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/mindfulness-meditation-helps-fight-insomnia-improves-sleep-201502187726 Also, the beauty of spirituality is a fulfilled life; the capacity of spirituality is authentic self-awareness. Send the spiritual signal to stir the water, otherwise there won’t be any ripples to converse, communicate with your body. It will be great to experience the mindfulness and spirituality by practicing yoga. https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/sleep-newzzz/201210/yoga-can-help-insomnia Or, a well-spent day of practicing Kung Fu Yoga with a tiger will bring happy sleep? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KcwjfPdFC0 Yoga! Yoga! Here we go!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lfjNAXGPzA

From “Sleeping Beauty” (by Kenn Nesbitt)

For a hundred fifty years
she missed balls and film premieres,
till Prince Charming came along
singing out a cheerful song.
Kneeling down he kissed her cheek
hoping that she’d wake and speak.
Sleeping Beauty raised an arm
reaching for the snooze alarm
and her waking words were these:
“Just need five more minutes please.”

What makes you beautiful? American actress and producer Marlo Thomas’ father founded St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and found out “There were two kinds of people in the world: givers and takers. The takers may eat better, but the givers sleep better.” Our host Kevin Liu has been a big giver: a representative of his school to join an international Computer Programming Competition in Japan, a volunteer having quietly worked hard on the technical maintenance of our website, and, a first-time host presenting his debut performance this weekend. Ladies and gentlemen, kiss your Mom before hopping to Mos. Join us. Thanks!!!


With Gratitude,
