My Rising Routine (re: practice 04/03/11)

  • set my iPhone alarm for 6:30am every morning
  • hit snooze (which is ~8 minutes on the iPhone). during these ~8 minutes i will do 3 things:
  1. say a quick, thankful and grateful prayer
  2. recite my TOP 3 (goals) in my head or aloud
  3. decide what my daily goal is
  • play my current theme song(s) (Till I Get There – Lupe Fiasco)
  • shower/brush teeth/get dressed – or as i like to call it proper “y-giene
  • take 20-minutes for a productive read (ie. Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, The Compound Effect, or any book recommended by #Striveware)
  • eat breakfast

hopefully this gives you some ideas for your own Rising Routine.

    I really like this idea about having a rising routine. I usually hate mornings especially when you have a chem lab 8 in the morning but i feel like having a routine would make things a lot easier. I usually waste time in the morning until i scramble last minute to get my stuff ready to go to class. I’m definitely going to try to make my own rising routine.

      Hey Sam,

      I’m glad you’re choosing to do this. I know you, and once you put your mind to something, you’ll do it. Let me know how it goes!
