Sleep & Health

Good morning.......Now I don't know about most people I know a handful of people that are like this but I'm not a morning person and it takes a lot for me not to yell at my son, my boyfriend, and even my dog.  I need at least 5 minutes before I even interact with anyone besides my cat. Now really I don't know what the moral of this post is maybe me needing to be a better person in the mornings.

I do know sleep is very important not just to me but to everybody. It plays a big roll in our physical health like weight and heart disease. Now I have a couple reasons I could be so grouchy when I wake up not having the right amount of time to wake up, not looking forward to work, or depression. I've done a little research on this click this link. I do plan on doing more research in the future to help me with my sleep because it is a little bit of an issue in my life and all the health issues I've found out I really need to figure something out melatonin, which one of the side-effects from it is drowsiness.

Every link I have in here shows what I've read and have got bits and pieces of my information.

I would like to be a morning person but it is hard when you have a 3-year-old waking you up at 6 AM. I"ve tried the waking up before him, I've tried putting him to bed later than normal but nothing is working. I"m lucky enough to have a boyfriend that my son calls daddy that'll watch him and let me sleep in. Then when it's time for me to wake up 7:30 or 8:00 and brings me my coffee in bed with my CBD in it. I'm not going to lie he spoils me. I love it.

As much as I love him in the mornings my cat is my best friend. She is the only one who doesn't push my buttons in the morning. It's probably because she knows I'm stressed in the mornings. Which could be part of my sleep issues. I do know I need to be on mood stabilizers because of the side effects of my epilepsy meds.

All I know is me myself and I need to stay in good health and so should everybody else not just for yourself but also for the people you love and love you. Health is more important than most people think I'm not just talking about the weight I'm talking about mental and all around.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
