WARMUP YOUR DIET- As we enter the colder seasons it's important to eat foods that are warming and therefore easily digestible.

TURN OFF YOUR DEVICES, COMPUTERS AND TELEVISION - Give yourself a break from technology and set a daily limit to your exposure, a constant feed can be toxic. Read a book or go outside instead. Make sure to shut down your devices and keep them out of your bedroom, your sleep will improve.
