Health, Fun and Well Being – Sleep

Hello.  My name is Carolina Aramburo and in this video I am going to talk about sleep, one of the crucial aspects of health.  I am going to apply the first health proposal to sleep, one of the major commitments one must have if you are committed to being healthy.  As I said in the introduction post or video – if you didn’t watch it you can go back and watch it  @ or you can scroll down and read it. And it’s the same with the first health proposal – I did a lot of things “right” for my health, my whole life.  My whole life I ate healthy, I drank water, I took vitamins.. all those things. But there is one thing I didn’t do, well.. there are many things I didn’t do but one of those things I didn’t do among the several I didn’t do; is sleep enough and almost once a week, not sleep, that had me almost die eight months ago.

I will tell you a little piece of my history and I am committed you can learn from my example and save yourself from going thru what I went thru. So there I am in my doctor’s office and he is telling me, “ If you don’t learn to sleep, ( because your brain has forgotten how to sleep), you are going to die.”  First of all, I was one of those people who were addicted to staying awake.  In the last video we were talking about non-obvious addictions; there it is listed as one of the many non-ovious addictions.  I think if you see yourself in whatever degree you do if I tell you what happened to me  and I am committed that could make a difference for you, in that non-obvious addiction: the addiction to stay awake and not sleep enough – that many of us have.

I thought I lived a healthy life all of my life.  I was very productive – I worked 17 hours a day and I was a high-energy producer kind of a person – leading seminars around the world, producing results for people and always having a busy schedule.  I was healthy, energetic and I was proud that I didn’t need any more than 5 hours a night and I even could do with less or if I needed it with no sleep.

And there I am – with a doctor telling me that if I don’t learn to sleep I am going to die.  And then he told me, “You need 8 hours.”.  First of all it was hard for me to accept that a human being needs 8 hours, that I need 8 hours.  I saw it like a waste of a third of my life: sleeping.  He explained to me that you invest a third of your life sleeping so you can be healthy the other 2/3.

Now, when you are faced with death you need to learn!!!.  I highly recommend getting committed to a health journey and getting committed to your sleep being sufficient before you end up like I did.  It is really easy to take a sleeping pill and go to sleep and it’s OK since you may have to do that.  But, if you apply the first proposal to the non-obvious addiction of staying awake you will really take a journey similar to mine.  For example, I learned to do whatever I need to do fall asleep naturally.  I learned that meditation makes a difference.  I learned that it is not just sleep – the numbers of hours that you sleep is important – that 7 vs. 8 does have an impact on your health.  I learned that it is not only the hours – it is the quality of sleep.  It is not just sleeping because when I started sleeping 8 hours I was just happy that it was 8 hours.  But then I learned the quality of sleep because sometimes you sleep 8 hours and you are still tired because it wasn’t deep enough for your body to restore itself.  I even learned that I needed to turn off all the lights.  You know how some of us fall asleep with the light on?  If there is light there then there are things that do not get activated like they are suppose to do, to restore themselves in your brain.  There are so many things about sleep that I cannot tell you all of them in one post or video.

It took me 6 months to learn to sleep 8 hours and to sleep deep enough and in a natural way and fall in love with sleeping, which was something that was never going to happen if I wasn’t that sick.  You have no idea of the impact of not sleeping.  There were many things I did “right” but just not sleeping enough gives you, for example, the next day being stressed out.  For no reason being a little edgy and stress is a major addiction that impact out health.  In the next video I am going to talk about stress.  But, sleep is a big subject and no to have a long video the best way is o go to our website – it is down below this video (see and you will find very generous conversations between doctors and participants and natural doctors giving you everything you need for learning to sleep enough – restful sleep, deep sleep – so you can restore yourself and your health the correct way.

Until the next post or I’ll see you next video @

Carolina’s Introduction


Hello, My name is Carolina Aramburo and I am creating this introduction note (also a video) just to introduce myself to you.

When I read anybody’s work on any subject I always get intrigued: how did that person get there?  SO, I wanted to share a little bit about; how did I get here.

I had the privilege of participating in being part of an elite master group of coaches, which is in my opinion, and in the opinion of many, many people, the best coaches of the world.

That elite group of people gave me the opportunity to lead large events and large seminars around the world.  I had the chance to lead to hundreds of thousands of people and I also had the chance to do a lot of one-on-one personal and business coaching.

SO after fifteen years of participating in that kind of work I really got that my life was and is about making a difference – that it is not something I do – it is just who I am.

I was leading programs last year and I got very. very sick.  Eight months ago I got really sick and I almost lost my life.

And given that, the last 8 months I have been on a major health journey.  I stopped working (as my doctor ordered) and I have been just fully dedicating myself to recover myself and heal myself.

In this massive health journey I have been learning a lot about health and well being and what it takes to heal oneself in this extreme conditions.  I have discovered and learned many things that I want to share with people who are committed to their health and well being just like I am.

I figure; If I am going through this whole massive health journey I may as well make a difference through what I am learning.

Therefore that is how come I go to be doing what I am doing. I’m  the co-author, the orchestrator in writing this book – the first ever book written by a community of Facebook – and the subject is : Health, Fun and Well Being.

What is unique about this book, that I am so excited to tell you about is that it is not just health and well being – it is actually health and well being from a different approach.

There is a very unique approach that I’m committed is really going to make a difference for people in their own health journeys.

Also, what is very very unique about this book is that I am not writing what I have to offer and what I have learned only. We are all writing it together  – everybody is contributing everything they know.  The co-authors of my book is a group of about 1000 people – they all get to participate, we all get to teach each other and coach each other.

It is extraordinary because just in writing the book we are supporting each other and learning from each other.  That group of people includes MDs, PHDs, and alternative doctors from alternative medicine like acupuncturists, chiropractors.  There are Yoga Instructors, energy workers; there are all kinds of people from all walks of life, extraordinarily committed to their health.  Also the book has a fun approach.

I am inviting you to check us out.  There is a link below this video (see  I am majorly working on writing the book and taking a health journey.

I will be sending a lot of videos with all the discoveries/proposals I have for health to contribute for well being.  You will find all of those proposals on this blog and the corresponding videos – one after another – on this channel:

Thank you so much for being committed to your health and for giving me and giving us the opportunity to make a difference.

I am committed that everything we share with you IS going to make a difference.  How you can make a difference for us is by giving us your feedback.  If you would go to the link (see and give us your comments and or your feedback then that will make a major difference for us.

We are not selling you anything.  The commitment is giving and receiving of information.  That would be a major way to contribute to us: giving us your feedback.

Thank you for much for the opportunity and until our next health proposal.

Health, Well Being and Fun Proposal

First Well Being, Fun and Health proposal, by Carolina Aramburo – Core content..

by Carolina Aramburo on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 2:36pm

My first Well Being proposal can only fully work if it’s use in combination of 3 things;

1st, Doing all the things that work for improving our Health, as a common wisdom, i.e. eating healthy, exercising, drinking enough water, sleeping the needed amount, following your doctor’s orders, taking vitamins, etc.

2nd Doing the work that it takes to create an authentic relationship to yourself as proposed by Dr Brown in the video of her TED – 2010 – Conference. (For my many fans who are Landmark graduates this is doing the transformational work that it takes to arrive to that baseline of authenticity with yourself, where SELF-worthiness gets newly created from loving your-SELF including and because of your imperfections, not in spite your imperfections.)

3rd Doing the work (*** I will write the specific proposed work, in a future chapter ) to arrive to this “new kind” of Health & Well Being relationship with your body.

Now, once you have done the first basic 3 steps, as described above, you will start naturally creating a “new realm of relationship” with your Well Being and your Health, and I highly recommend, making it fun, but it is not mandatory.

The mentioned above 3 steps will create a need to get to “know your body (and here I don’t mean knowing your body, like knowing you weight and height, even thought that maybe useful ) given that you can’t profoundly relate or master, something you only know superficially. I mean profoundly knowing your body’s strengths, imperfections, not obvious addictions, etc. Just to give you an real example, it took me 6 months to learn exactly what my body needed to sleep naturally…..even though the short cut would have been, for me to take sleeping pills the rest of my life [one of the symptoms of my illness is the inability to sleep, literally my brain had no patten of sleep = my brain forgot how to sleep naturally].  Taking the journey of knowing my body, the way I propose here, even though it took 6 months, it now allows me to sleep naturally without medication (when my doctor said that it would be almost impossible to accomplish).

The core theory of the proposal is basically making all the “healthy” choices, BUT FROM A NEW PLACE; not from a place of doing what is “right”, but from a place of a created authentic relationship with your body, where you created that sense of SELF-worthiness including and because of your imperfections, not in spite  of your imperfections, limitations, even addictions (*** I will also write this specific proposed work in a future chapter, since I am not referring to the obvious addictions [alcohol, cigarettes, etc], I am referring to “NOT OBVIOUS ADDICTIONS”;  i.e. the addictions to staying in stressful situations and being “strong” about them, the addiction to sleeping less that what we need {*** whole new chapter on sleep, upcoming attractions}) and totally including a new transformed relationship with your strengths.

Once you create the consistency of this new practice of “coming from that created perspective” to make the healthy choices, you will see a dramatic new level of results on your effectiveness of the choices that you are making and your reliability in making them. Also as an ENORMOUS BONUS: YOU will find your-SELF making different choices, that you would not even think of, if you didn’t come from the created perspective presented here.

More to come…..
