I hope that you and your family had a Happy 4th of July.
Our Constitution says that Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are our unalienable rights. I think it is important to take a moment to think about how we each pursue happiness.
In all the years I have been helping people treat their sleep apnea, I have found that for many of them it’s the lack of quality of life that brings them to seek treatment.
When you think about it, what is happiness if it’s not having good health, vitality, few limits on your physicality, successful management of pain, and the desire to enjoy social activities?
The psychological and philosophical pursuit of happiness began over 2,500 years ago. Presently, Positive Psychology, one of the newest branches of psychology, focuses on how to help humans prosper emotionally and lead healthy, happy lives.
Here’s the unhappiness you may experience with untreated sleep apnea:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Lack of energy
- Difficulty being mindful and experiencing a true present
- Lack of creativity
- Difficulty connecting with others to have meaningful and nurturing relationships
- A willingness to take care of yourself
If you experience any of these issues due to not treating your sleep apnea, please give my office a call today or send me a quick email. The road to happiness is just around the corner.
