  1. Morning Gratitude: Start your day by reflecting on three things you're grateful for. This can set a positive tone for the day.

  6. Hydrate: Start your day with a glass of water and ensure you stay hydrated throughout the day.

  7. Take a digital detox: Set a time when you will go screenless for at least one hour prior to bedtime. Turn off ALL digital devices. I mean all of them.
