At last, here we are: Week 4 of the Morning Routine Challenge! It’s been quite a month, hasn’t it? We’ve discovered that lemon water can be a refreshing alternative to tea and coffee (honestly can’t believe it’s still here), and that alarms trigger Annie the Anxiety Monster.

We are half way through everyone (whoop whoop!), and thus (good word), it is time to analyse the week. If you remember from the previous post on Week 1, you’ll remember that I made some changes to the aforementioned (another good word, killing it babe) routine.
