Are you willing to risk violent mood swings, a crippling fall or a fatal accident for a good night’s sleep? Looks like a high price to pay for something that should come naturally. Sleeping pills may seem like the only solution when you’ve spent countless nights tossing and turning.
But drug induced sleep holds many dangers. Otherwise, try a warm Epsom salt soak in the evening, drink a cup of honeyed herbal tea or warm milk and don’t look at the clock. Also, don’t forget to tell yourself that it won’t last. Sweet dreams.
Here’s a round up of what you missed here at life retreat in the past week. Have A Merry Christmas!

So, here are a few practical tips on surviving the festive season!
