Seasonal Depression

“The leaves are changing, the scent of pumpkin-spice has started to fill the air, and it’s cold enough to comfortably curl up in a sweater. It’s official- it’s spooky season!

Summertime

“I would like to write a humble ode, to the warm fall days, that we have been enjoying on the east coast. It has made summer seem to stretch on, for an extra few months this year.

“Sleep is so important for so many reasons. Getting 8-9 hours of sleep increases your energy-levels, encourages a better eating-routine, and helps keep your mind clear and ready for what the day may hold. However, sleep is also difficult for so many reasons. Whether you have insomnia, anxiety, racing-thoughts, or simply can’t get into a good routine, lack of sleep is a common issue that we have all come across at some point.
