  • Kind of funny because on one hand I don’t spread myself thin trying to see a lot of people, but it is more relaxing. Take care! Have a great New Year!

  • I miss out on a LOT because I make sleep a priority, but I know I’m happier & healthier because of it! This holiday season has been super chill, but we did plan ahead to make that a possibility 😉 Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  • Sorry, but if this video was meant to help, for me, I thought it was actually very cold, clinical, and was of very little help or value. I sure wouldn’t want this guy as a therapist.
