7. Q: How has using the Morning Sidekick Journal and doing your morning routine impacted your life overall?
7. The journal helped me to understand that it can be really nice to wake up and to spend some time with an morning ritual instead of being stressed to accomplish the usual tasks of getting out of bed, into the shower, into the clothes, into the train to work. Now I know that it can be nicer getting up even earlier to enjoy the mornings. I also liked the tip of turning off the colors on my iPhone with an shortcut. It really helped me to fight my cellphone-addiction.
