So true! Finding that work/life balance is as important as any other skill. I can't count the number of bugs I've figured out while walking my dog, in the shower or simply after a good night's sleep.
Had the same experience with sleep too. I got a Fitbit a few months ago and was surprised to see that I usually spend at least 1 hour awake.
I'd also recommend trying to eat healthier. I found it easier to exercise and sleep better when I eat healthy. It all works together.
Do you recommend any resources about meditation for beginners? I'm trying to get into it, but don't know nothing about it tbh.

Yeah completely agree about eating healthy, that’s definitely tip 6!

I started by using YouTube to try to understand what meditating actually was and followed along with some beginner guided meditations. Then I downloaded headspace, went through their free introduction and am trying to make it a habit!
