Whether you’re trying to kick an addiction, be there for someone who is, or just plain live healthier, sleep is crucial to reaching all your goals. If you're having trouble sleeping, it affects everything from your sex drive to your memory. But if you’re reading this, you don’t need me to tell you that sleep is important. You get it, right? So why are you still tossing and turning, obsessively flipping your pillow to the cool side, serenading your cat, or scrolling through your Netflix queue at four in the morning? Where are all the sheep and why can’t you count them? What is the problem, and more importantly, what is the solution?
It’s a big, boozey world out there. From mimosas at brunch to cocktail hours, it can be hard to imagine living alcohol-free. But for some folks, unclenching that glass is like taking off a winter coat they didn’t know they were wearing. They can feel the sun on their shoulders for the first time. Before you decide if a liquor-free life (or day, week, or month) is for you, let’s explore the awesome things that could happen when you stop drinking.
Fitness trackers are ubiquitous these days; Jawbone, Fitbit, Apple Watch, Misfit, Garmin...even McDonalds has tried to jump on the trend (unsuccessfully). They’re especially popular in January, when many of us resolve to revamp our habits for the healthier, kick addictive behaviors, or get help with addiction recovery. Whether your wearable device is a freshly opened holiday gift, or a time-tested favorite, milk the most out of it by using it to help you stick to the jackpot of New Year’s resolutions: kicking addictions and bad habits.

Happy Boxing Day! What's that, you ask? When you take all of your holiday stress out in a boxing ring.
Wondering how you’re going to stay sober or semi-sober at your holiday work party? You’re not the only one! Lots of people feel the pressure to drink dialed up during corporate events. Alcohol is a deeply ingrained part of many workplace cultures, at the organizational level, industry level, and even national level.
Self-awareness serves us well almost any time in life, but it's an especially valuable asset for effectively navigating challenges and tough circumstances.
