Anytime I’m struggling with a choice I need to make or an opportunity I’m hoping will move from an idea to a vision, my brilliant coach, Jille Bartolome, tells me to get in the shower (or jump on my trampoline).

Then you have some people say showering twice a day is overkill…!

So what’s the best routine in this case? Morning showering, bedtime showering, or twice a day showering?!
