If you've ever dieted, you're familiar with the pendulum swing you experience when you're trying to stick to a rigid set of food rules.

7 simple steps to wake up easier in the morning

If you’re anything like me, waking up in the morning is a daily struggle. I press “snooze” every five minutes, sleep through fifty alarms and end up late to everything.
