There was a period in time where I was living on 4 to 5 hours of sleep per night and a 12- to 15-hour workday. Saying the struggle is real is a gross understatement. I dragged myself to work every morning with the courtesy of strangers who (were unwittingly forced to) lend me their shoulders to…… Continue reading How I make my mornings suck less
