How do we define good sleep hygiene? When is the best time to workout during the day based on your natural sleep cycle? Should you cram for that test the next day or just snooze if you want to get the best score?
These are just a few of the questions we dive into with Dr. Roxanne Pritchard, PhD from St. Thomas University.

In this episode of The Knowbodies Podcast, Will interviews Physical Therapist and Home Health Contracting business coach, Bert De Vera, PT.
Bert shares his story of moving from the Philippines after passing his Board Exam and starting life in America as PT. After working for someone else for 6 years, he hit a wall and started to wonder if the American dream he came for meant working endless hours for someone else and not having time to spend with his family.
That wondering led him to researching different ways to leverage his knowledge and increase his financial stability. He learned about Home Heath Contracting (the details of which he explains in this episode), started his own business, and has since been able to significantly increase his income and help other rehab professionals do the same, providing them with more time with their families and improving their financial lives.
If you're interested in learning more about Bert or seeing what his Home Health Contracting business program is about, you can connect with Bert at www.rehabpreneur.com / www.bertpt.com / www.homehealthcontract.com or find him on Facebook under Bert De Vera.
