Irrespective of what time our work schedule demands us to work till; I make it a point to start my day by 5 am the next morning, as it is the only time I get to myself so it’s really important for me to meditate and visualize what I want for the day before me.. It keeps me focused and peaceful,” says Jacqueline.
