5 Hacks to Waking up Happier

We are told to practice gratitude first thing in the morning to ensure that we are waking up happier, jump-starting our brains to be positive rather than tired and negative. This is all great and wonderful advice but we have to look at the steps we take before we even sit down to write in our gratitude journals/planners.

Many of us reach for our phones and then we are immediately sucked […]

Sometimes I trick myself into thinking I’m a robot, and then I get tired or near burned out, and I remember that I’m a mere mortal human.

How to Stop Ridiculous Thoughts That Keep Us Awake

Yet, all of us are so tired by the end of the day but when it’s time to sleep, we can’t. Yet, we aren’t actively addressing our worried thoughts while we lay in bed.

Hacks for Better Sleep, Naturally

Dear Sleep, I miss you. Please come back to me. How many times have we thought this or written it down in a journal? Sleep, it’s one of those natural human needs that somehow gets tossed to the wayside. Thanks to work, family, friends and the internet webs, it seems like we just can’t get enough shut eye these days. But instead of thinking of sleep as an optional activity, where we can shortcut our snooze time in order to make way for other priorities, the act of sleep itself should be regarded up there with eating and going to […]
