Welcome to the fifth and final episode in this series covering 5 tips to age gracefully and optimize energy and body composition.
In this show, we will be talking about stress management and putting all the pieces from previous shows together.
You will learn about healthy sleep habits and why sleep is so important, as well as how to create a stress-free, sanctuary in your bedroom. You’ll also hear useful tips for managing stress and learn why your mattress temperature can actually change the way you sleep, and how being in a healthy relationship can contribute to stress management.
