Speaking of sex … Here’s a good reason to make good sleep a priority … A new study found that good sleep leads to a better sex life for women. Poor sleep, on the other hand, is linked to a worse sex life.

Have you ever broken up … with your best friend? It may be hard to imagine life without your BFF, but if the relationship is more stressful than supportive and fun – it may be time to cut ties. Therapist Shani Tran says these are some of the reasons to re-examine your relationship with your BFF:
  • They’re always putting you down.
  • You’re affected by their drama/problems.
  • They don’t show any interest in you or what you’re going through but expect you to be interested in them.
  • They are competitive with you/jealous of you and not supportive of your dreams.
  • You’re making all the effort to keep in contact.
  • They make you feel nervous whenever you’re around them/on the phone with them/Facetiming with them (Pop Sugar)
