Sleep is still poorly understood, but it’s clear that it is essential to a healthy mind and body.
When you want to make a positive change in your life, take time to define your current state, define your desired state, and specify exactly what step you are taking now to make progress.
When planning your time, it’s worth being mindful of why you are doing each activity. In particular, prioritise tasks with mutual benefit for both yourself and others.

We all like adventure and progress. The trouble is, we also like security and sameness. We can get the best of both worlds by designing our lives well.
We all try to show our ‘good side’ and hide our ‘bad side’. But if we try too hard to ‘hide the unacceptable me’, we can pay a big psychological price in the form of tiredness, anxiety and depression.
