Henry David Thoreau famously called the morning a time “…when I am awake and there is a dawn in me.”
In the 1840s, he implored his readers to “…learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake,” not only physically but spiritually.
Over 150 years later and as we all struggle with distractions from technologies that impede our precious attention spans, what can we learn about valuing personal space, our desires, our priorities, and our limited time?
Amy Landino is a YouTube influencer, a keynote speaker, and a productive lifestyle coach whose book, Good Morning, Good Life: 5 Simple Habits to Master Your Mornings and Upgrade Your Life, encourages readers to reclaim personal space — especially from the demands of social media — to get clarity on their priorities in life, their passions, and their desires.
Amy’s award-winning YouTube series, AmyTV, has over 24 million views. Her work has been featured in prestigious publications such as Business Insider, Fortune, Entrepreneur, and Inc.
