The Importance of Managing Stress and Sleep 

Maintaining a work-life balance while running a business is no easy task. But finding ways to handle stress and improve your sleep is crucial for your overall well-being. Chronic stress disrupts hormones, affecting serotonin and melatonin production and your sleep. Achieving quality sleep should be a top priority, not only for your health but for peak performance as well. 

Jim Poole certainly echoes this sentiment. In his chat with Sebastian, he established a direct link between stress and sleep, highlighting how adequate sleep functions as a form of restoration for the body. He talked keenly about the cycle of stress and sleep deprivation countless adults, including himself, find themselves caught.
