Sleep Secrets: Why We Love Our Leesa Mattress

I truly believe sleep is a necessity. It’s not a luxury and my productivity and success depend on it. One of our biggest sleep secrets? Invest in your bed and your bedroom. We spend so much time sleeping, why are we skimping on this vital time for our body and brain to recharge, recover and reset? I sleep about nine hours a night and it’s the secret to my success. Many people have asked, “but don’t you lose working time during the day?” The answer is no because by sleeping nine hours a night, I’m so much for effective during the day. When I don’t get enough sleep, I’m tired, I’m slow and I end up losing even more time during the day by taking naps or just not being focused.

I was working on finding more affordable pieces for y’all when I stumbled upon an extremely similar leopard cardigan for less than $30. Talk about a steal! At half the price of the one selling at Nordstrom, this piece looks almost identical.

Five Ways to Stay Motivated Despite Challenges

Staying motivated and disciplined when it comes to a long-term goal is tough. Right at the start, passion fuels us and the idea of accomplishing a goal gets us to take the necessary steps. However, over time that can drop off and reality sinks in. It gets harder and harder to continue the grind and then the goal we originally set seems almost impossible. Earlier this year, I set a goal to improve my skating skills. As with most things, it’s easier said than done. Since I’m no longer “training for the Olympics” like I was when I was younger, it’s harder to justify spending time at the rink when I could be working. So far, Johnny and I skate pretty regularly, but we are not always getting as much time on the ice as we should.

I want to share five ways to stay motivated despite challenges that may come your way. A few of which are things I developed from when I was a competitive figure skater. Some are from the grit of being a reporter. Others are just lessons life taught me in order for me to succeed.
