"A guide to the early morning habits that boost your productivity and relax you--featuring interviews with leaders like Arianna Huffington, General Stanley McChrystal, Marie Kondo, and more."


Marie Kondo performs a quick tidying ritual to quiet her mind before leaving the house. The president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, Ed Catmull, mixes three shots of espresso with three scoops of cocoa powder and two sweeteners. Fitness expert Jillian Michaels doesn't set an alarm, because her five-year-old jolts her from sleep by jumping into bed for a cuddle every morning.

Part instruction manual, part someone else's diary, the authors of My Morning Routine interviewed sixty-four of today's most successful people, including three-time Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, Twitter cofounder Biz Stone, and General Stanley McChrystal-and offer advice on creating a routine of your own.

Some routines are all about early morning exercise and spartan living; others are more leisurely and self-indulgent. What they have in common is they don't feel like a chore. Once you land on the right routine, you'll look forward to waking up.

This comprehensive guide will show you how to get into a routine that works for you so that you can develop the habits that move you forward. Just as a Jenga stack is only as sturdy as its foundational blocks, the choices we make throughout our day depend on the intentions we set in the morning. Like it or not, our morning habits form the stack that our whole day is built on.

Whether you want to boost your productivity, implement a workout or meditation routine, or just learn to roll with the punches in the morning, this book has you covered.

"My Morning Routine" is a collection of interviews from successful people from many different avenues. There are some common threads throughout the interviews. Many people weave in hydrating early with water first followed by coffee or tea, meditation, exercise, keeping electronics off and email away till later, and many others. It was was really interesting to see what other people do to set themselves up for success.

Personally, I've been waking up at 4:50 AM for the past several months. Sometimes I sleep in, but not often. I try pretty hard to make it up before the children so I can write, read, and pray. But lately I've found that even if I'm up early, it doesn't exactly set me up for success if I jump on social media or YouTube. After reading this book, I've made some tweaks to my system and I'm already seeing them pay off.

If you're looking to modify how you start your day, this is an easy motivating read to help you move forward!
