Hi everyone,

With all the demands of daily life, we often feel like there's not enough time in the day to finish our checklistsā€”or simply enjoy a cup of coffee or read a book. In an essay for TIME, Laura Vanderkam, author of I Know How She Does It, reveals that successful people often wake up earlier and use the time before work to go to the gym, cook breakfast, or spend more time with family. To become a morning person, she suggests going to bed earlier. Often we spend time before bed watching TV and scrolling social media feeds. By going to bed earlier and waking up earlier, Vanderkam argues we can transform an unproductive night into a fulfilling morning.

What are your morning routines? How do you wake up earlier? We'd love to hear from you at

Be well!
