Put on Your Own Oxygen Mask First

Anyone who’s ever traveled by airplane has heard the order from the flight attendant: “In the event the cabin loses pressure put on your oxygen mask first, then assist those around you.”  This applies even if the person next to you is your baby, your elderly mother, your significant other or anyone else who is...

Sleep Struggles

Sleep.  That one word is so loaded.  Not getting enough.  Getting too much.  When to do it.  Where.  On what.  With whom?
