She found the practice had improved her sleep patterns considerably and as a result improved her outlook even more considerably.
Mike and I spoke a bit about it and he said, not for the first time, “You ought to take it.”
I nodded in agreement and said I would think about it...
Letter: Keeping Our Waters Healthy
To The Editor:
