Hi everyone! Today I have a treat for anyone looking for less stress, more sleep, and a restored passion for life. So I’ll just assume that probably includes everyone on this planet. With the exception of our cat. He has no stress. Unless you count moving from the bed, to a sunlit spot, and back to the bed again in the evening. But technically he’s not a person…so… For the rest of you all reading this post, today I’m talking about Crystal Paine’s new book “Say Goodbye to Survival Mode”. In her new book Crystal shares some much needed practical ideas to help you get a big picture perspective to help you live your life on purpose!
