“Will that make me look fat?”

Recently, I overheard this timeless conversation between two friends sitting down to eat lunch.

Unfortunately, this conversation wasn’t heard at the local Starbucks, but in an elementary cafeteria.

Posted on by Crystal in Guest Posts | 1 Comment

Is waking up early a daily struggle for you? Do you need a dose of caffeine nearly every two hours to keep you functioning? Do you get irritated and emotional easily? You might not be getting enough sleep at night. The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults aged 18 to 64 to sleep for seven to nine hours daily.
