Hack Your Morning Routine

Enough was Enough

I was fed-up of the feeling that by the time I woke up, everyone else was already ten steps ahead of me. It was like I was always showing up late to my own party and by the time I got there, everyone had already left. It even got to the point where I would have anxiety because it felt like the day had more control over me than I had over it.
