Why This Recipe works

“What you do between waking up and getting up sets the tone for your day. ”  – Hillary Wen

We don’t always feel 100 percent the moment we wake up. Sometimes we feel groggy until we turn over and see our loved one. Then like magic, we light up. This simple shift gives you an extra 30m to sleep while also priming your mindset for the day. It’ll leave you feeling cleansed, alive, and rejuvenated.
