The Connection Between Blue Light and Insomnia

One of the many important things I recommend to people struggling with insomnia is to put away their phone. I don’t tell people this just because their phone is a distraction, though it often is—rather I tell people this because the light emitted from their phone’s screen at bedtime is tricking their brain into thinking it’s daytime.

Take Charge of Your Life – Be Assertive!

You and I likely communicate with others every single day. Whether you’re talking to your family member, a coworker, or a salesperson, what you say and how you say it affect you and the person you are communicating with. An interaction can leave you feeling empty and angry, or empowered and understood.

5 Ways to Love Yourself this Valentine’s Day

How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? I have seen this holiday trigger reactions at both ends of the continuum. Some people embrace all that is red and pink, while others can’t wait for it to be over. Regardless of which camp you fall into, I’d like you to think about Valentine’s Day in a different way this year – not just as a blatant reminder of a lack of companionship OR solely as a way to immerse yourself in all things romantic.
