Breaking the Cycle of Stress and Poor Sleep

June 11, 2021

There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.
-Homer, The Odyssey

When juggling the demands of work life and home life, typically the first thing that we sacrifice is our sleep. Yet this lack of sleep, or getting poor quality sleep, can make it all the harder to juggle those demands. There is a detrimental effect on your physical and mental health, and also on the level of service that you are able to provide your clients.
