Do you sometimes get to the end of the day and wonder: “where did the day go?” You look back at everything that happened but nothing seems to stand out. And if someone asked you what you got up to, you'd struggle to even come up with two things you did.
I think we’ve all felt like this at some point. This is a common symptom of our 24/7 lifestyles and a clear sign that autopilot has taken over.
