My friends, I know it’s easy to get obsessive with things like diet and exercise, but sleep is your number one optimization tool! Sleep is the most essential tool for longevity & brain health. I urge you to care enough about yourself + how you feel to take the time to prioritize your sleep! But at the same time, be easy with all of this – it took me months of research, trial and error, and implementing these ideas to feel like I had settled into new habits/routines where I could distinctly feel these benefits – but I promise, it is so worth it!

From my experience, the culmination of all of these benefits is increased overall happiness. (And who doesn’t want that?!) When I am getting enough high quality sleep & all of these other aspects are falling so easily into place, feeling happy is a natural side effect. I wake up each day so excited to be alive, excited to continue my journey through this wild life with more ease and flow – and I strongly believe that we all deserve to feel this wonderful!
