It highlights the importance of healthy morning habits. Drinking water on an empty stomach. Savouring your coffee. Having a healthy breakfast. Creating daily goals. Being consistent… blah de blah.

In a world where perfection is adorned, we often feel inadequate when we make mistakes.
But here’s the thing. We all make mistakes.
People who pursue perfectionism runs after an unreachable idea — a race towards anxiety, depression, and countless abandoned projects. Yes, planning is essential and useful. But obsessing is neurotic and unhealthy.

Sometimes you have everything under control on Monday and by Thursday you have no idea.
This is how life often unfolds.
You lose a client. You battle through family disputes. A loved one leaves. The neighbour’s dog barks excessively day and night. You get unnecessary grief from the unkind store clerk. Digital overload takes a toll on your mental health while a broken appetite ruins your physical health. Your sleep quality is subpar. Your car breaks down. Your child or pet gets sick. Business challenges set you back. Distractions pull focus from your purpose. All in one week.
