  1. Thanks for this episode – I’m following this podcast a few months but i never commented here.

    I agree what waking up early is a good thing, but is so hard to beginning. I had to start waking up earlier because the kids school, i guess it is so hard to start alone. (i mean without reasons to do)
    I’ll use your tips and after study the materials of the Show Notes i hope that i can waking up more earlier and become a “morning person”.

    Best regards and again thanks for this episode.

  2. Thanks for this episode – it was a good refresher of things I have started to do in the past & then got a bit lost on during the holidays. I think I need to pay more attention to my evening routine so that my morning routine run more smoothly, especially with the screen off time and going to bed early enough so I get enough sleep. This is exactly what I was thinking about late last night when I was slouched on the couch watching mindless TV, so hearing this podcast today has cemented it in that I have to make these changes.
