Eating mold sounds pretty scary, but chances are you've probably done it once or twice without even realizing it. When cleaning out your fridge, you toss the obvious, clearly ancient items coated in something that's green, gray, or fuzzy, and almost always gross.

I'm a good sleeper until I get stressed. Instead of quickly nodding off to my soothing white noise machine, I'll lie awake for an hour thinking about everything I have to do, then wake up from stress dreams. Instead of sleeping straight until my alarm, I'll bolt awake in panic, hours early, for no apparent reason. I need all the sleep I can get when I'm stressed, but it's when I'm stressed that I just can't get it.

Food poisoning is a real risk.
