change your life

It’s not every day that you find easy ways to change your life for the better.

I first encountered James Swanick when I was listening to the Spartan Up Podcast. He talked about the fun and health benefits of giving up alcohol!

I was intrigued.

I’m not much of a drinker, but I have noticed that when I do drink some alcohol, I feel a bit “blah” a bit later.

Then I found out that James has done a lot of research on sleep and its benefits.

Health and sleep!

You and I can change our lives for the better with better health and better sleep!

Listen on to find out more!
