1. Q: How many years young are you and what is your living situation?
1. I'm 55. My living situation is myself and a dog.

2. Q: What's the biggest challenge you faced in changing your morning routine? How have you dealt with it/got over it/are still dealing with it?
2. The biggest change was letting go of social media! It had become such a habit to spend hours viewing, refreshing, and re-viewing! I'd look up and it was time to get ready for work! I actually had no problem stopping once I started doing the Morning Journal. I was able to identify other activities I'd rather be doing, and I did them!

3. Q: What time did you wake up and go to sleep before you started using the Morning Sidekick Journal, and what time do you wake up and sleep now?
3. I regularly wake up at 5 then turn in by 9:30. This was never an issue for my mornings.

4. Q: What did your mornings look like before you started using the Morning Sidekick Journal? What do your mornings look like now?
4. My mornings before the Journal was coffee and Facebook/Instagram! Back and forth, back and forth for hours. Now, social media gets 45 minutes with my first cup; then I read, meditate, sometimes paint, depending on my work schedule for the day.

5. Q: In one sentence, what's your favorite thing about the Morning Sidekick Journal?
5. My favourite thing a out the Journal is the simplicity. Write it down, do it.

6. Q: How long have you been using the Morning Sidekick Journal?
6. I have completed one journal in full, then purchased a second, then the Morning Mastery journal. I'm packing to move, so I can't give the exact start date, but it's been probably about five or six months.

7. Q: How has using the Morning Sidekick Journal and doing your morning routine impacted your life overall?
7. The impact of the Journal is a general feeling of well-being because I don't feel like I'm wasting time. Also, one of my morning activities is meditation (for which the Meditation Sidekick was/is absolutely invaluable) which has helped me find a way to feel at peace and less lonely.
