  1. Thank you very much for this beautiful article. Well said.
    Even I had sleeping problem like wake up in the middle of sleep.Hence this, i didn’t concentrate on my next day work.
    Later I realized it was because of timeline issue.As per recent survey what i read, We should try to follow the timeline strictly.(Timeline is nothing when to do what? Example when should have your dinner,coffee, exercise and all that stuffs..,).I found website to follow the timeline and helps me to get healthy.
