  1. I have not had why I have a hard time sleeping looked at. I would not be surprised if it is linked to my health. I know I need to get that in order too. Stress is a big factor in my sleep loss as well. I really need to start trying to monitor my sleep better. Any suggestions, Ariel?

    1. Hello Brit, Indeed sleep is such a major part in our health. And not sleeping well can really change our lives and how we think. So there are so many things to think about Brit. First off, no blue screens an hour before bed. And trying a meditation of gratitude before sleep always helps me. Also just sitting with myself for a few minutes seems to bring me into my more centered space. And just saying I love you to the Universe seems to squash any thoughts and stress. HOpe this helps. Big hugs and hopes for easy and comfortable sleep. In peace and gratitude, ariel
