I'm making a video in which I challenge myself to do a ridiculous amount of stuff in the morning, inspired by what I shall call "morning routine porn."
Partly I'm making fun of the idea that there's a magic morning routine that will change your life, partly I think it's legitimately helpful to bust your cycle and get out of your comfort zone. I'm certain I won't be able to maintain this, but it could be fun.
And I welcome any other suggestions. The more ridiculous the better.
1. Get up before the sun
I've tried getting up early before, and I loved it. Couldn't keep up with it, though.
2. Think about death
Came across this idea from this Buddist Monk.
I have experience with meditation.
4. Make Bed
I won't actually be able to do this because my wife will still be asleep.
5. Bullet Proof Coffee/Water with lemon/Tea/Smoothie (drank "mindfully")
Who knows, maybe ALL of them at once?
6. Protein Forward Breakfast (eaten "mindfully")
I already eat eggs and black beans pretty much every day, inspired by Tim Ferris.
7. Run 5 miles/Work Out
While listening to an inspiring audiobook.
8. Cold Shower
I already did a video in which I did this for 30 days, to... interesting results.
9. Affirmations in the mirror
Surprise, I did a video about reading more books, too!
12. Family time
I assume my wife and kid will be up at this point.
13. Set daily goals
Basically, just write down what I have to do that day.
14. Eat the frog
AKA, first get the thing done that I least want to do.
