Improving my sleep  was the most impactful health improvement I’ve made in 2016!  Around April, my body basically hit a wall.  I was low on energy, I couldn’t think straight,  and when I worked out I felt like my heart was going to explode.  I went to the doctor a handful of times for this test and that test.  Nothing.  They sent me home telling me that I was perfectly healthy.  This was of course terrifying because I figured that if it ...
