Learning about other people's routines has less to do with what we should be doing, and more to do with informing us about what does or doesn't work for us. — Madeleine Dore
What I was discovering with these habits, is that they actually fit together like puzzle pieces. If you want to get up and have breakfast, it's probably a good idea that you wake up a little bit earlier. And to wake up earlier, it's probably a good idea that you go to bed the night before a bit earlier. And so to sleep better it's probably a good idea to turn off your phone and not read the whole internet before you try to go to bed. — Madeleine Dore
Love a good to do list! — Madeleine Dore
