Pieces of me

Inspiration for those who warrior on

Here I am again being a writer who doesn’t write. Picking up the pen and then dropping it before its energy singes my fingers.

Day 30: Have a healthy sleeping pattern #30daysofGrowth

June 30, 2018


I have some great advice to help you improve you sleeping patterns. As I’ve shared before, Aaron Nash, the owner of my fitness facility, Platinum Fitness has started hosting a radio show. It’s on BBM Talk Radio every Thursday morning at 9 a.m. EST.

Did you know there are glasses to reduce the effects of blue light to help you sleep better? I didn’t either. I’ve ordered some for my kids, who have trouble sleeping due to ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder (I’ll always try anything to help them sleep better! Will report back).

I hope you enjoy it and encourage you to listen live, because you can call in with any nutrition questions you may have.

Daisy with a quote about gratitude

Celebrate every victory, no matter how small. Appreciation for what you’ve accomplished or been blessed with is the basis for every next step in the process of self-improvement. Every topic I’ve written about on my blog, every part of a balanced mind, body, and soul requires gratitude. It’s a corner piece. You’ll get no where without it.
