“How Great are you?”
I’m glad you asked
It’s a vital question that’s often passed
if we focus on transgressions and our failings
And all the lifely areas in which we may be ailing

Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?
I don’t know about everyone else, but I have had some difficulty with sleep in the last week. Sleep is a topic we’ve often mentioned – why – because it is so important. A lack of sleep negatively affects your wellbeing, and with a less than ideal mental and physical state, it starts to negatively impact other areas in our lives - like forgetting things, doing things slower than normal, etc.
So, during winter, we suggest that you maintain good digestive health, maintain exercise and keep up good sleep habits so that you wake well rested and energized for the day.
