We all know how much of a dumpster fire this year has been, but even through all the chaos, 2020 has been pivotal. I’ve heard so many others echoing that sentiment as well. This year was a catalyst for change and personal growth, and that’s something truly miraculous that has come out of 2020. Yes, quarantine was terrible. But you know what isn’t? Spending more time with family (or on yourself, for those of us who are separated from family and haven’t seen them for over a year now – hey oooooh); focusing on “the little things”; gratitude – for every aspect of your life. 

We all get to a point around this time of year where we gear up for the following and vow to do better, be better, follow through with goals & promises. Then, inevitably, around the 2-week mark (or 1 month mark for those of you with more willpower), those resolutions tend to lose a bit of their luster, we lose steam, and ultimately fall back into bad habits. I know this because I absolutely was one of those people. But 2020 has changed me, and I’m holding myself accountable by actually putting this down in writing. I’ve never really “published” my New Year’s resolutions, mostly to save myself from the eventual embarrassment & shame around my feeble attempt to “eat healthier” for a few weeks by cutting out Chick-Fil-A french fries and maybe hitting the gym here & there. I think that by actually putting this out into the world and “speaking it into being” (or typing it, rather), holds more weight; there’s power in words.

We all know that quality sleep is essential for overall wellness & good health, but if you've been having some major trouble in the bedroom (uh, not that kind!) and your sleep has suffered as a result, it can cause a whole myriad of problems - everything from anxiety to issues with your immune system.

Ok, yeah yeah, we get it - we need sleep! But if you're struggling, what can you do about it? Well that's what this post is all about! This year has brought so many new & negative changes that my sleep took a big nose dive a few months ago, but often, "in the deep end is where you grow" (Down to the Roots, by  Saveria - look it up. Inspirational song)!

Through my temporary bought of insanity insomnia, I discovered some very helpful & simple tips to drastically improve sleep. If you're having trouble falling asleep, pick a few of these tips to implement into your nightly routine & I'm sure you'll see an improvement!
