The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod (animated book summary) – How to Create a Morning Routine


How you wake up in the morning effects your
entire day. If you begin your morning with momentum, you
can keep it up for the rest of the day. So Hal created a morning routine that he calls
“The Miracle Morning”, which helps you start the day full of motivation and enthusiasm. But before we get to the routine, you need
to wake up first… And we all know how hard that is in the morning. The old saying “you snooze you lose”, may
have a much deeper meaning than any of us realized. When you delay waking up until you absolutely
have to, consider that what you’re doing is actually resisting your life. So here a few tips how you can resist pressing
that snooze button. Move alarm across the room. This forces body movement and motion creates
energy, so it helps you wake up. However you’ll still likely be feeling sleepy
so… Brush your teeth. The point is that you’re doing a mindless
activity for the first few minutes and simply giving your body time to wake up. Since you’re in a bathroom already, splash
some water on your face, it will wake your up even further. Drink a glass of water. After 6-8 hours without water you’ll be naturally
dehydrated and dehydration causes fatigue. The objective is to rehydrate your body and
mind as fast as possible, to replace the water you were deprived of during the hours you
slept. Alright so you’re up… What now? How do you have a successful morning? Enter: Life savers S, stands for silence. You can either do meditation or just heavy
deep breathing, while you let your mind wander. It will help you clear your head of all the
negative thoughts and reduce stress. Just do it for 5 minutes. But make sure you don’t do it in bed, you
don’t want to fall asleep again! A, stands for affirmations. Your self talk has a dramatic influence on
your mood. When you design and write out your affirmations,
align them with what you want to accomplish and commit to repeating them daily – they
make an impression on your subconscious mind. You can over come your limiting beliefs and
behaviors and replace them with those you need to succeed. Here’s an example if you want to lose weight,
your affirmation might look something like this: I am 100% committed to going to the
gym 5 days a week and running on a treadmill for 20 minutes. The more specific the actions the better. Customize them to your needs and also feels
free to add some inspiration quotes in. V, stands for visualizations. Visualizing your goals and dreams is believed
by some experts to attract your visions into your life. Whether or not you believe in law of attraction,
visualization lifts up your spirit and emotions and pulls you toward your vision. It can be a powerful tool for overcomming
self limiting habits such as procrastination. E is for exercise. Morning exercise should be a staple in everyones
daily ritual. When you exercise even for a few minutes every
morning it significantly boosts your energy and mental clarity. Every morning you gotta get your hearth rate
up and fill lungs with oxygen. Whether you do some yoga, go for a walk or
run is up to you. Me personally, I like to do some light stretching
and go to the gym. R is for reading. Whatever you want in your life, there are
countless books on how to get it. The key is to learn from the experts, those
who have already done what you want to do. With an almost infinite amount of books available
on every topic, there are no limits to the knowledge you can gain through daily reading. I recommend making a commitment to read at
least 10 pages per day. Lets do some math here. Reading 10 pages per day equals 3650 per year,
which equates approximately eighteen 200-page personal development books. So 10 pages a day equals 18 books per year. I guarantee that if you start reading today
you’ll see major improvement in your life. S is for scribing. Scribing is just another word for writing. You can write about anything. You can have a dream journal, write about
your goals and plans, lessons learned and so on. Anything you feel like you need to focus on
in your life writing will help you capture ideas. The process of writing something down forces
us to think through it enough to understand it. So that’s it about “life savers”. You can do each activity for as long as you
wish, but try not to exceed 1 hour with your morning routine. Try to implement some of the ideas talked
about in this video and customize the savers for your needs. And remember, these are just ideas on how
you can upgrade your morning. This is not something you HAVE to do to have
a great one. Alright, thank you very much for listening. If you enjoyed the video please hit the like

  4. As a dental hygienist, I gotta recommendย *not*ย brushing teeth first. Your dehydrated mouth is acidic and the outer enamel layer is slightly more solubilized, so brushing in this condition will result in too much enamel loss. Drink the water and wait about 20-30 minutes until the saliva jets in your mouth get going again – not just wet but rebalanced.

  5. I like this because it is short and to the point. The animations are great and help to anchor the talking points. I don't like videos where people drone on and on. This was perfect!

  6. If you enjoyed the video, you should check out the book for yourself. It goes in much greater detail. ๐Ÿ™‚
