You need to get a proper night’s sleep to function properly. While cramming in extra work before bed might seem like a great idea, you need to say NO and learn how to switch off. Switching off before bed time will mean you sleep better – they talk about turning off your screens / mobile before bedtime and giving yourself a break… and for good reason!


“It is not daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.” – Bruce Lee


Whether it’s coffee, a great book or a walk, try to motivate yourself to rise early, to get the most out of your morning and day ahead.
