1) Rise Early

The same time, every day.

It's very difficult to make oneself get up earlier than one has to. It feels good when you do it!

What to do with that time? Exercise is good. If nothing else, I'll sneak out of bed and do simple bodyweight exercises. The Miracle Morning is a small book with some really good ideas on how to spend the morning as well.

This guy posts a picture of his watch at 4:30 every morning before his daily workout. What are you doing at 4:30?

Full disclosure: I caught a monster infection this week, so I justifiably fell off the wagon hard. I slept in today. Ready to get back on it.

2) Cold Showers

These are awesome.

The Morning Miracle might be an interesting read for you

I typically can't work after a long day either, which made me quickly realize I have to get used to working in the morning. I've actually been going to sleep earlier so I can wake up fresh in the morning. Lately I've been studying the first hour to improve in algorithms/data structures and then I get some work in afterwards. Even when I'm not working I think about the game non stop recently.

Idle games are honestly my absolute favorite and I really want the genre to push forward. It seems like we havent really progressed at all in the past 2 years and CH2 doesn't seem like it will do it for me either, so all this motivates me to push even harder.

I wake up about 2.5 hours before work. I follow The Miracle Morning pretty closely. It has six rituals: exercise, meditation, journaling, visualization, affirmations and reading. After I do each of these for about 10 minutes I pack lunches for me and my wife and iron my outfit for the day. Then I pick a good podcast and do my 15 minute walk to the train for work. It really helps me focus and have a productive work day.

At night I usually go to the gym around 8 and get home at 9. I shower, take a melatonin, hang out with my wife for a bit and go to bed.

I wake up early fairly consistently. Most Saturdays I sleep in until 8am, but throughout the week 5am is the norm. Today just happened to be 2:30am, so consistency as far as exact time isn't really a thing for me.

My morning routine I've adopted from Hal Elrod's Miracle morning. I originally read a synopsis found here after hearing about the concept. I read some reviews and thought the book was pointless to read, but I'm finally reading it now and not hating it. I thought the synopsis would be enough and the book itself would be full of fluff, but it's both inspiring and informative.

Essentially, the morning begins with 6 things. How much time you spend on each is up to you. Depending on homework, work and other tasks I have planned, I'll spend up to 2 hours doing these things and sometimes I just rush through it so I can work. Of course, again not so consistent, I do skip the routine altogether some days and I notice those days don't go too smoothly afterwards.

  1. Silence/Mediation/Prayer. I'm not religious at all but strangely, I find myself praying in the morning. I find entreating myself is a way to solidify who I want to be and forces me to visualize solutions (#3). Silence and mediation is pretty self explanatory, it helps you relax. I often defer this part of my routine so that I can work on something and then meditate to relieve any stress it causes. Finally, this is a good time to remember to stretch.

  2. Affirmation. I do this in two ways. I either in my writing (see #6) or during/after my mediation I'll start. Affirmations for me basically consists of repeating my goals and my personal Mission Statement (if you don't have one you should, this idea I adopted from the The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People). I end essentially forcing myself to be very excited. Not really a though process just a feeling, a rush of energy to get started.

  3. Visualization. As I mentioned, I do a little prayer routine most mornings. This forces me to visualize my goals. Sometimes I just visualize something specific, like the other day I had a bench trial. Maybe I'm planning a hike or learning something new. Today I visualized next week and thought about what the week would look like in retrospect. Then I did the same for the month, and thought about my goals as if they had been achieved.

    4.Exercise. I usually wait till about 6 or 6:30 to wake my girlfriend up. We take our dogs for a walk and I usually run off midway with our bigger dog (she walks the little dog back to the house). Sometimes I just walk the whole route with everyone. Afterwards I'll either follow up with a workout or hit the shower. Exercise really awakens the body and of all of these things is the most important. I feel like it's great for depression, axiety and many other ailments, but then again I'm not a scientist and don't care to back up this claim for the sake of this post.

  4. Reading. Not necessarily following this order, I'll often read something during the first part of my morning, before exercise (then I can think or talk about it while I jog/walk). I try to find something good on reddit, pick up a book I'm reading, or I'll work on a tutorial (web development, programming) which often involves reading. I avoid the news and negative articles for obvious reasons. Today, this thread was my reading, so it can be anything in my opinion.

  5. Scribing. I usually write last. I try to write something very simple so that I don't lose motivation. The reason that writing is important in the morning is, if you write about the day before you are forced to remember something that would easily be forgotten. Writing also is a good way to do Affirmations and Visualizations, as well as plan out your day. This used to be really hard for me but then I just decided to keep it simple-stupid. So in other words, a few sentences suffices when I'm not in the mood. On the other hand, this morning I wrote a blog post and now I'm writing this. The point is, though, whatever I write doesn't have to be the length of a book.

    Speaking of which this post is becoming a book so I'll stop it here. Hope that helps or inspires someone. I recommend the books I've mentioned, but from what I understand Miracle Morning has basically been summed up in this post but like I said I'm enjoying it so far. As far as when you wake up, I think the earlier the better, personally and 6am just does not cut it for me.

    Lastly, I should mention a good way to remember the above is the acronym SAVERS. Thats why I didn't put things in order of what I do necessarily, but in the order that fits the acronym.

This one did for sure. I always hated mornings, hated getting out of bed, etc. This book taught me how my mornings can be the most important part of the day and has helped a ton.

u/dcutlergm · 3 pointsr/selfhelp

Read the Miracle Morning (quick & easy read). The author has pulled the best morning routines in 6 steps:

Silence - Meditate
Scribe - Journal

Apart from changing your life, the book introduces you to a 70k strong community that only inspires and encourages. Every single person has been in your position.

I read the book over a year ago which ultimately lead me to complete 4 triathlons so far and help me focus my mind through meditation.

u/sassathefras · 3 pointsr/infj

I have tried time blocking and it was just not helpful for me. Two things have really helped are Bullet Journaling and Miracle Mornings.

Bullet Journalling is awesome because it is so flexible that I can make it work with anything. It can be creative, or minimalist, and it works with everything. I'm not kept to a rigid format, and it can hold anything from tasks/events/plans to goals/reflections/journalling. It's definitely worth a try.

Miracle Mornings are awesome because they really focus on getting what matters into your day in the span of a morning. I need to feel more meaning in my life and the Miracle Morning really centers you. It focuses on the Life SAVERS:

  • Silence
  • Affirmations
  • Visualization
  • Exercise
  • Reading
  • Scribe

    I would absolutely recommend at least reading the book to find out if it's something that you could commit to. It changed me from wishing and hoping to do all of those things, to actually doing them every day. I would strongly recommend even just reading the book to see if it's for you.
u/banllama · 2 pointsr/asktrp

This is a pretty popular book about morning routines

> how does anyone make it without routine? How to master anything without it?

It's hard to. Humans are creatures of habit. You described it well enough in your post.

u/HedoNNN · 2 pointsr/theXeffect

Yes, this is one of my two goals (will post my cards soon).

Reading and implementing "The Miracle Morning", while being nothing new actualy helped me too.

That book?

u/d0ggy4 · 1 pointr/selfhelp

Read this book and start doing "Miracle Morning" -routine every day.

u/BradNoMore · 1 pointr/getdisciplined

There's quite a good book all about getting up in the morning called "The Miracle Morning" which helped me a lot. I've included the links at the bottom.

Basically, it teaches a routine called S.A.V.E.R.S., which is 10 minutes of each of these:

Silence (Meditation)
Scribing (Journalling)

Doesn't have to be in that order, but the "S.A.V.E.R.S." thing helps you to remember it.

One of the best lessons I learnt from it was that if you're having an issue of continually hitting the snooze button in the morning, then you probably hate waking up in the morning. So why do it multiple times every morning instead of just doing it once and getting up. Hope that's useful to someone.

Or the Audible version, which you can get with a free trial:

The Miracle Morning is a goodie. It really covers every habit / theme that this subreddit recommends on the reg, but the way he really sells you these habits helps the most.

u/blandarchy · 1 pointr/Advice

Read the book, Miracle Morning. It really motivated me to wake up early and have a morning routine.

u/whatifitried · 1 pointr/financialindependence

the 10X Rule by Grant Cardone ( is almost exactly what I am saying in this conversation.

The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan ( is a good one for how to achieve massive results, I feel like it also mentions why you should always set larger goals than you THINK you can accomplish.

The Miracle Morning by Hal Erod ( is a decent one that touches on the concept but is more about motivation and structuring your day for success and things like that.

If I think of any others and remember, I'll come drop them here, need to go look at my bookshelf / todo list of books when I get home :)

Tons of books (honestly almost every success or wealth book I've ever read) talk about changing your mindset from "I cant" to "How can I" - Rich Dad Poor Dad and Think and Grow Rich come to mind.

u/Dubrx · 1 pointr/Fitness

That's awesome! If you want some extra motivation, I HIGHLY suggest reading The Miracle Morning. The author talks about how his motivation was started by getting up and running in the morning.
Here's the link, worth the read for sure...or get the audio book and listen to it while your run ;)
