Do we have a good night of sleep because we had a great day or
do we have a great day because we slept well?
Here at The warm Milk Journal we believe it is both.
There are certainly physical things we can do to help insomnia such as control our sleeping environment (lighting, quiet, quality mattress pillows and linens, wearing eyepads and ear plugs, wearing socks and comfortable sleepwear, etc.)
However, you can have the most comfortable bed in the world, a partner who sleeps quietly, no pets or babies to wake you up, etc. – and if you are anxious, worried, stressed, etc. you will not sleep restfully.
That is why many of the articles here at The Warm Milk Journal focus on living your most fulfilling life possible by day.
What can you do live the life of your dreams (by day) and have sweet dreams and blessed restful sleep (by night)?
At its core, that is what this site is about: BALANCE
To a rewarding day and peaceful night,
Your eyes are like street lamps to me. They tell me I am home, this is where I live, I am safe here, I have made it. There is someone waiting here to talk to me and hold me…I want to know everything, and I am rushing now across the grass, to throw open the door, to say “I’m home”, to see your eyes, to know that this is the right address, the right address at last, thank God.

If there is anything in this world that gives me peace and lessens my anxiety is knowing that I am loved and I have a peaceful loving home to live in.
What does home mean to you?
To me, home means:
- Being surrounded by people and pets that love you and accept you unconditionally.
- a refuge from the outside the world.
- Good smelling things: food cooking in the kitchen, bubble baths, potpourri, flowers and herbs in the garden, fresh clean linens on the bed, candles, loved ones.
- furniture that pleases me.
- clothes hanging in my closet that delight me.
- views outside the windows that connect me beautifully to the natural world.
- Colors, art work, and plants that are soothing and beautiful.
- A place to play
- A place to laugh
- A place to cry
- A place to dance
- A place to be silly
- A place where I can take my contacts out, wear my glasses and sweats, and still feel beautiful
- A place to be held when everything gets to be too much at times.
That is home.
What does home mean to you? Get out your journals and jot a few ideas down.
Have a blessed evening,
