I have found that instead of creating such a strict diet to follow, it’s sometimes easier to just create a framework of “not to do’s”[…]

This week was one of those crazy, hellacious and over-scheduled weeks that normally causes massive amounts of anxiety and leaves me running around like a chicken with its head cut off!
