I’ve always had an on and off relationship with sleep. Most of the time, my sleep is near perfect. But I go through phases where it’s impossible to sleep for weeks at a time. I recently went through one of these phases and tried everything– including just about every over the counter supplement and prescription, and none of it helped.

In retrospect, I think the medications were having the opposite effect on me, and I worked really hard to develop better sleep habits for the future. Keep reading for my top tips to get the best sleep each night:

Its been a long couple of months for all of us. I hope you are taking care of yourself and your family. Its hard not to be overwhelmed with fear and worry right now. I’ve been trying to spend my time keeping busy with house projects, exercising, and binge watching some of my favorite shows.
