Stay Salty Over the Holidays

As the King of Late Night TV, Johnny Carson was known for giving us a lot of laughs over 30 years. “Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way...

The Sleep Struggle Is Real

Have you ever struggled to sleep? I mean, really struggled — where you lie in your bed in a totally dark, quiet room set with an optimal temperature for sleep (between 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit) and been wide awake for hours? Maybe you even add in some white noise, a...

Nap Vibes

There is a paradoxical relationship to naps. We want them, then we regret them. They refresh us and they make us groggy. Too short a nap leaves us wanting more; too long and we can’t sleep at night. This window of time — where a little shut-eye is beneficial...
