What advice do you have for other female entrepreneurs looking to create healthier and invigorating morning routines and habits?
I suggest writing down a 2 week commitment and then hold yourself to that routine for just 2 weeks. Start small, things like always make your bed, get moving by a certain time, etc. Also keep in mind that a night routine can be just as vital as morning routine. If the routine feels good during that 2 week time frame, you are more likely to keep it up!
What are some of your favorite leisure activities?
Researching , reading, self development , enjoying a cocktail at a nice lounge
