My husband and I were both very active in sports of some sort during high school and college. We are firm believers that healthy competition is good for you. We encourage our kids to do their very best and if it is something they want to excel at….give 150%. Being competitive helps set the bar […]
The Importance of Sleep
I grew up hearing “You’ll get enough sleep when you’re dead”. Well, at times I do feel dead. I find myself on auto-pilot driving in to work, zombie mode when doing administrative duties and thinking about the next time I will receive R&R (the weekend).
