I was born into a phenomenal family, who showered me with love and support. While my parents never had “tons” of money, they made sure that my life was always comfortable, which made for a fantastic childhood. I had all the things I needed and most of the things I wanted.

You’ve just accomplished two great things for your body; 30 minutes more sleep and 30 minutes available for morning exercise. If you don’t need more sleep you can just adjust the formula. Voila!
