7 Ways to Get Better Sleep

This year, I’ve made it a goal to get better sleep. I have always struggled with getting consistent good sleep at night.

The Healing Power of Crystals

Crystal healing has either gained a lot of popularity recently or many people I am connected with are on a wellness/spiritual-awareness kick. I am all for cleansing my aura and making sure my chakras are aligned and opened, so I figured I would give crystal healing a try.

Social Media Detoxing

If I calculated how much time I spent scrolling on my various social media handles, I would be completely unashamed. I would start on one page, somehow end up on another and the next thing I know I am way too deep into lurking on someone’s page that I did not even know! Then I would hop from one social media site to the next until I have drained myself and an embarrassing amount of time has passed. This could go off and on for various hours. I would look…
