That’s a wrap for this weeks’ issue of The Social Scoop. Here’s wishing you a relaxing weekend and super-productive week ahead!
On a personal note, I’m striving to lead a very balanced life with plenty time away from my desk at weekends… evenings, too. Yay, a new 2015 habit for me!
I also recently started using my old iPhone 5 as my bedside phone – after removing all apps: no Facebook, Twitter, email or texting. Just my music for meditations and my Sonos controller! I now keep my everyday business iPhone 6 Plus outside the bedroom and, let me tell you, it’s having a profound impact on my sleep quality. Woohoo! Highly recommended.
