Meal prep has been receiving a lot of traction online, on social media and heck in my own household.

Has anyone else noticed that one of the simplest things we can do for our skin, health and overall well being seems to be one of the most challenging thingsto get in the habit of? What am I talking about? I am talking about keeping our body’s hydrated.

We have all been there before, suffereing from restless nights, staring up at the ceiling fan wondering just how many hours of sleep you will get now if you close your eyes and actually fall asleep, bargaining with your brain to just afford you 4 hours just 4 hours of uninterupted sleep will let you function through your work day, make lunches for your kids and be an alright person.
From stress to lack of physical activity to the foods we are eating there are a ton of reasons why sleep might be out of your reach these days, the good thing is it doesn't need to be! By modifying some small things in your diet you will be able to find that elusive sandman in no time.
