Excellent presentation, fun and practical presentation.

I do everything I’m not supposed to do. Sleep with my cat, drink wine, no bedtime routine, sleep in like a teenager on the weekends, little exercise, lots of lights from my 15-floor window. Eat late. I’m going to try one thing at a time. Make that a habit. Add another thing.

The sleep statistics were very interesting and alarming.
