This week I am talking about sleep and why it is important to stop binge watching Netflix before bed. I used to think I needed to enjoy a couple of hours to myself before bed while the kids were asleep. That way I could unwind and relax. But, it just made things harder for me in the morning and the day was running me.
I now go to bed at 8:30pm every night so I can get a solid 7.5-8 hours of sleep every night and I can get a couple of hours in the morning to myself during the most productive time of my day.
Now, take my advice and GO TO SLEEP!
