Self Help & Pastoral Care: Get Some Sleep

Sleep deprivation and negative emotions - The Boston Globe

I continue to see a plethora of articles published on sleep deprivation and inadequate sleep. Note that those are two different things: some people are not getting enough sleep and others are not getting enough good sleep.

Sleep deprivation can influence memory, mental alertness, appetite and according the Boston Globe article our ability to recall good experiences and emotions. It's as if a lack of sleep facilitates our ability to recall negative experiences and emotions.

Pastors, in providing pastoral counseling for any host of issues -- depression, marital, sexual, spiritual, etc. -- try talking to people about their sleep health.

People in ministry -- like camp directors -- who don't get enough sleep are worthless in their efforts. Ask me -- I know!

"Worthless" would be a huge overstatement Barb and certainly not true of you.
