Off TopicCreating A Meaningful Morning Routine Will Make You More Successful (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by [deleted]

Yo Red Pill, let's talk mornings.

Having a positive morning routine is one of the most crucial steps towards a successful body, mind, and spirit.

Video Version

Close your eyes and try to visualize a successful person that you know. Imagine what they do every morning, it’s probably done in a productive way, right?

Your visualization of the successful person probably didn’t smack the snooze button a few times. Rather, their morning probably consisted of exercise, healthy food, meditation or yoga.

The point I’m trying to make is that successful people are generally going to have some type of structure to their mornings, they will have certain habits that they are consistent with which overall add and emphasize the level of their productivity and success throughout the day. If you’re reading this post, then I’m guessing you have some type of ambition to better yourself. If so then you must understand the way you start your morning will generally dictate thew rest of your day.

It’s crucial to start off with a great morning routine.

Why Bother With A Morning Routine?

I’m young, but in my years on this earth, one crucial lesson I have learned is that the way you start your morning is generally going to define how you live your life, think about that for a second. How can you go about creating the ideal morning routine for your lifestyle?

I’m going to show you some simple habits you can incorporate into your life and overall point you in the right direction to improving the first part of your day.

8 Habits For A Good Morning Routine

Below is a list of habits you can use to create a good morning routine. Try some out, and pick a few that you enjoy and create your own custom routine. You don’t have to use all of them, but if you can that’s fantastic.

  • Count Your Blessings *

Being thankful is a very easy and powerful thought to focus on.

Think about this for a second. You, yes you, reading this very article have time out of your day to ponder on how you can improve your life, if you’re reading this I’m guessing that you have the ability to feed yourself every day, you have a roof over your head. If you vocalize this and genuinely thank your situation for what you have, not what you don’t have, every single morning. This will have a powerful ripple effect on how you perceive certain problems throughout the day, which may otherwise be stressing you out.

The little things, the things which you have no business worrying about can then be spent being productive and concentration on being a better human, and contributing to the world, introspecting about pointless worries.

Be grateful for what you have!

Try to cultivate an abundance for every situation around you. Try it out. Through your morning routine write down or just think about certain things you are grateful to have. This may seem pointless, because it doesn’t directly change your situation, but you must understand that it changes your mindset, and generally your mindset is what will manifest as your physical reality. Mindset can be changed for the better in the morning, so by waking up and vocalizing the qualities that you have in life right now will benefit your spirit, soul and even those around you.

Find a sense of urgency in your ability to find abundance and appreciate the blessings you experience every single day.

  • Exercise

Exercise is good for you, I know this, you know this, everybody knows this.

Even if you work out later in the day, some type of movement in your morning routine is going to allow your body to wake up as well as your mind. It shifts your mind in the right direction allows the feel good endorphins to flood your system. Since your morning routine dictates how your day starts a quick workout will have you feeling good from the get to go.

Research actually shows us that exercise has benefits on our focus and concentration, even in our short term memory. Along with this exercising in your morning routine will help boost your metabolism for the day. As I said the workout doesn’t have to be intensive, but something like a short jog, or even yoga is going to make the transition from bed to crushing the day a lot easier.

  • Visualize Success

To visualize a certain reality is one which will probably come to fruition. Think about it, if you visualize a happy and productive day, chances are likely going to head in progression rather than degeneration. If you visualize yourself at the gym, my bet is chances are, you’ll end up going.

If you visualize yourself at the gym, my bet is chances are, you’ll end up going.

Successful people always preach this, my mentors and successful figures I follow tend to say this same thing over and over. Visualization, especially upon waking up in the morning. Visualization is planting a seed for what you wish to grow in the future. You can’t grow a plant, or success in other words without planting the seed nothing will grow.

How do you practice visualization?

You can do this through meditation.

  • Meditation

Successful entrepreneurs, Olympic athletes, scholars preach meditation. Meditation has been around for thousands of years, an ancient practice which harnesses our spiritual connection to the universe. yeah, this sounds like some woo-woo type stuff if you’re not the spiritual type. But you must understand that in a world full of so many distractions, it’s good to take the time to relax, focus on your breathing and think about who you are and your purpose in the world.

From a scientific standpoint, meditation has even been shown to physically change the matter in your brain, besides these benefits, which of course are great for our cognition, memory, meditation will just allow you to relax and as I’ve said before, your morning ‘vibe’ will echo into your day. So by meditating, grounding yourself, relaxing and focusing on having very present energy your flow throughout the day will mimic this state of mind.

All you need is 10 minutes, that’s it and you will be able to harness the profound benefits meditation can give you. This one is probably the most important.

No matter what, I always make time for my daily meditation.

  • Hydrate

Just like eating healthy and exercising, everybody knows that water is good for you. Drinking ample quantities of water is crucial to your vitality. You’ve heard this before, but our bodies are mostly made out of the water, think about that. Now think about how much you really drink a day. After waking up your body has been in a restful state, and you haven’t had the chance to hydrate. The morning is when you need water most. Fuel your body and your mind and nourish yourself with water the moment you wake up.

Cold water is preferable, to really wake you up and kick-start your energy.

  • Reading

When was the last time you completely finished reading a book from front to back? A full book, a novel, whatever it may be; any substantial piece of literature.

If you are thinking, “hey I do read, I read all the time!” I don’t mean Tweets and social media posts or the back of the air freshener when you forgot to bring your phone into the toilet.

Reading will improve your memory, cognitive ability, you will learn about the world, it’s stress relieving and once you find the right genre, it’s free entertainment. Reading can provoke incredible ideas, theories, perspectives. By beginning your day through another person’s perspective you can better make use of your own. What I mean is that exposing yourself to knowledge in the morning will help you cultivate a desire to gain more throughout the day.

Also, you take in a lot more information when you wake up, while you’re fresh. So while you’re sipping on a coffee in the early hours, instead of scrolling through emails, read a book.

10 pages a day will add up to 3650 pages a year, that’s 10-20 full books!

My favorite book is called The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

All you need is yourself and a book to read.

Why Reading Is Key To A Strong Mind.

  • Take A Cold Shower

It really isn’t as bad as it sounds.

It has been proven that having cold showers really does have a significant impact on how you feel and your overall health. As simple as it sounds, the temperature in the shower makes a big difference.

Notable Benefits:

  • Reduce stress

  • Fat loss

  • Increased testosterone

  • Improved immunity

  • Relieved depression

  • Increased willpower

Let me be clear. I’m not saying you have to have cold showers to have a good morning routine. What I am saying is they wake you the hell up. Humans have two types of energy. Low vibration, lazy, energy and high vibration, productive, positive, ambitious energy. I want to balance this out towards the latter as much as possible, especially in the morning.

Do you have the guts to try this out? Give it a go and let me know how it goes in the comment section.

You don’t have to start out cold, just switch it to cold at the end of the shower. You’ll experience the effects the very first time. Some even claim slight euphoria.

  • Set Goals

Set goals for what you want to accomplish for the day and remind yourself what you want you to accomplish in your life. A great book I’d recommend for this concept is called The Slight Edge, an incredible book which will allow you to turn small disciplines into big rewards, highly recommend this.

Write a to-do list for the day, however, don’t obsess over it. Write down, in order, the most annoying, difficult tasks, do them first, be realistic and make sure to complete the list you set out for yourself to ingrain self-confidence, knowing that you can repeat this process over and over.

Don’t set yourself up for failure by thinking about the future too much, it’s good to set goals but try to remain as present to the now as possible.

Setting goals and visualization becomes a piece of cake once you understand your own psychology. Consider reading Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.

2 Habits To Avoid At All Costs

  • Do Not Check Your Emails

This one may surprise you but think about this for a second. You are expecting an email that you are uneasy about and may provoke you to get a little bit stressed. If you check your email in the morning, you’re going to overthink about things which can be dealt later once you are in a more logic head space. When you are waking up, it’s better to spend time on refreshing yourself and preparing your body, mind, and spirit to conquer the day. Rather than spending wasted time pondering on emails.

Rather I suggest as Tim Ferris and other entrepreneurs do is to set a time of the day where you check your emails, maybe with lunch. Or before bed. Don’t stress yourself in the morning, relax. Emails aren’t that important, for the most part.

  • Snoozing

I hope this one is obvious for you. If you are snoozing chances are you’re not sleeping early enough. So rather than continuously hitting the snooze button try to manage your time and get to bed a bit earlier. For example, you could read a book before bed rather than watch TV. You know why you aren’t sleeping, so make the changes to correct this./

If you’re snoozing in the morning you’re giving yourself less time to do the above and making it harder to get the most out of the early hours.

Your Motivation Is At An All Time High In The Morning

Think about self-control and discipline as an energy source, it’s full in the morning and the more time that passes, the more of the battery which is drained, similar to how a muscle would work in getting fatigued at the gym.

There was a study done at the University of Nottingham and the national institute of Singapore, these concluded that

Results revealed a significant effect of ego depletion on self-control task performance. Significant effect sizes were found for ego depletion on effort, perceived difficulty, negative affect, subjective fatigue, and blood glucose levels.

The more you wait from the moment you wake up, you experience greater loss of the discipline and motivating feelings you are recharged with during the early hours.

Take Away Message

It may seem like something insignificant to have a morning routine, maybe it is. But the benefits you reap are significant. If you didn’t read the entire article, just think about it like this. If successful entrepreneurs and athletes have a structured morning routine which helps them achieve their goals and helps they live a more effective and efficient life, then if you do the same you will experience some benefit.

When your morning routine is top notch the rest of your day is going to tend to mimic that vibe.

For the next few days, I challenge you to use the above tips and form some type of structure to your early hours.

[–]Aaren_Augustine 59 points60 points  (16 children)

I get up at 4:45 a.m. during the work week to lift heavy in my home gym. I do this specifically to cultivate discipline. It extends throughout the rest of my day.

I am now going to avoid the "push a button get a banana" shit I do with my phone like checking emails. Didn't consider that might get in the way, but it does.

Great post. Smells like rain.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (7 children)

When do you go to sleep then?

I have difficulties to fall asleep if its too early. Any tips?

[–]Aaren_Augustine 20 points21 points  (6 children)

9-9:30 p.m.

I have an evening ritual to train my brain. Like set out my workout clothes, get my lunch fixed for the next day, put the kids to bed, tuck the wife in too. Or relax and read. I take allergy medication sometimes; especially if I'm wired. I used to be very manic, so sometimes that can get in the way

My thought is if I can wake up, stand up right away out of habit now, the reverse can be true about bed time.

[–]Peter_B_Long 1 point2 points  (1 child)

FYI, this guy doesn't get 8 hours of sleep. 7 hours at least if he doesn't toss and turn all night. He would need to be asleep by 8:45 to get 8 hours. With that said, he does have kids and busy I'm sure. It's not easy doing what he does. I know because I do it too. I wake up at 5am, drive to the gym and go to bed before 9. It's not easy trying to fall asleep when the sun isn't even all the way down yet. It's what it takes.

[–]Aaren_Augustine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a limiting factor, I agree. One I am not willing to circumnavigate yet.

[–]kcorkery45 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Do you eat before you hit the gym?

[–]Peter_B_Long 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I drink a protein shake mixed with a banana

[–]kcorkery45 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sure, makes sense. Thanks for the reply.

[–]Stonish 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Dude I need some advice. Im busy as shit during the day, going to start getting up between 4-4:30 to do my workouts. It needs to be that early because I go to work around 6:20.

HOW... And Im serious because I can't get through it. How do you organise your sleep so you get up rested even tho it is so early in the morning? It's a weird thing - I can go to sleep at midnight and get up at 6am well rested but if I try to go to sleep at 10pm and get up at 4am I feel so sleepy this is ridiculous. Where's the catch?

[–]Officer_Dick_Johnson 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You're not used to it. That's the catch.

No easy way out of this one. You want to get up early get up early.

Drink coffee if you don't for the first few days.

[–]Aaren_Augustine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I still feel very groggy. Though better than when I started. And like I got run over by the heal train while I slept. Glass of cold water and a warm up set for squats. Wakes me right the fuck up.

I think the catch is like progressive weight lifting. I just started with going to bed earlier, then added waking up at 4:45, the added standing up the moment my alarm went off.

Build discipline like you would a muscle; progressively adding more "weight" each week.

[–]theONE843663 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did you always lift morning or did you switched to morning? Cuz I tried doing that and I had no performance my muscles just didn't wanna do it. I'd like to get on this cuz it'd save me time. Any tips?

[–]r_a_y_s 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have to wake up at 4:45 a.m. every morning just to get to work on time. Im not sure if getting up earlier than that to try and accomolish these things is counter productive to my health or no

[–][deleted] 16 points17 points  (0 children)

One thing I would like to add, something that I learned from Tony Robbins:

Get up one hour before you have to start prepping for work, and spend that hour doing something that you enjoy. I use my early time for reading fiction and playing with the dog.

It gets the hook set in your head that the first hour of the day is for your personal enjoyment.

The first of my day is for me. Everything else comes after.

[–]Bitchezbecrayy 55 points56 points  (17 children)

My name is Bitchezbecrayy. I'm 22 years old.

I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water activated gel cleanser. Then a honey almond body scrub. And on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub. Then apply an herb mint facial mask, which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

There is an idea of a Bitchezbecrayy, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our life styles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

[–]Officer_Dick_Johnson 18 points19 points  (7 children)

Wanna grab lunch? Friday. Dorsia.

[–]Bitchezbecrayy 12 points13 points  (6 children)

Very tempting, but I'll probably be returning some videotapes.

[–]Officer_Dick_Johnson 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Shame. Well, would you mind giving me your business card, then?

[–]Bitchezbecrayy 5 points6 points  (2 children)

[–]Officer_Dick_Johnson 4 points5 points  (1 child)


That subtle off-white coloring, lettering weight... It's... It's perfect.

Very nice... Name's Allen by the way.

[–]EscortSportage 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Someone always beats me to this...

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorFieldLine 9 points10 points  (3 children)

That's because most people lack the creativity to come up with something funny themselves. They just recycle the same tired jokes again and again and again and again

[–]Dookiestain_LaFlair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still, that's no reason to hit them with an axe.

[–]morphite65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder if anyone's actually followed this exact routine as an experiment

[–]BillC618 11 points12 points  (15 children)

I have never been a morning person unless you define morning as 9 am. I've tried to get up and be productive but I eventually fall back on sleeping in. Good luck if you can do this.

[–]refusewool 50 points51 points  (9 children)

You can do this. You just choose not to.

[–]alphaornothing 15 points16 points  (1 child)

These two sentences apply to most things on here.

[–]RPFlame 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Agree with you. I used to excuse myself for having unproductive mornings because I live in a very noisy area which makes it very hard to concentrate to do anything, but then I bought headphones. I could also take my laptop and find some other place in the city to study if I wanted to.

[–]asymptotic_salvation[🍰] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Absolutely. We were all that guy that "just isn't a morning person".
Until we actually laid down the discipline to go to bed at a decent hour, monitor our sleep hygiene, and fix up the ancillary areas to our sleep.

[–]NotSorryIfIOffendYou 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yup. I spent years with that as my excuse, always knowing that not going to bed at 3am would probably help but not being willing to do anything about it. Astonishingly enough I became a "morning person" within a week of going to bed at 11-12ish.

I usually hate to recommend pills to combat things that don't really need combating and just a smidgen of willpower, but I honestly started popping 10mg melatonin at around 10:30 and reading in dim light as opposed to smoking pot and watching Netflix or playing ps4 to fall asleep and I'd usually be knocked out before I could finish 10 pages. I don't need to do this any longer, your body really really wants to be on a schedule.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Toilet paper in the ears can muffle the sound some as well.

[–]BillC618 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have done it, for years. It just was always painful.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Been waking up at 6:30 M-F for a long time now. No matter how much sleep I get, I always feel like shit and always feel much better sleeping until 8:30 or 9.

[–]wanderer779 8 points9 points  (1 child)

It's not really necessary to be a morning person. I'm sure there have been people who lived happy lives who slept in till 10 am everyday.

However if you want to become one, one way to reset is to go camping. When I'm camping I find I have no trouble going to sleep early. You're in nature which relaxes you, you're probably getting a decent amount of exercise, and you won't have lights and other electronics interfering with natural sleep cycles.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

The people that sleep in until 10 and be successful usually still have a routine at 10, have something to do during their daily life around 1, and go to bed at generally the same time

[–]g4casting 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That simply doesn't exist. It's just conditioning and years of morning inertia. I used to be the laziest person ever in the morning (I would sleep till 11 am) until I had an outdoors arduous job for 4 months in the tasmanian winter. Had to get up at 5.45 and prepare food etc for the day in a kitchen outside by -10°C. After those 4 months, waking up early in the comfort of my home feels like a breeze.

[–]theredpill22 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was never a morning person either.

I had a streak of getting up at 5.30 am every single morning for 3 months.

It's all discipline. Your body will get used to it.

[–]jgwould714 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Set your phone across the room, in your bathroom etc. Just stand up for one minute. Then start your morning ritual. I start with making my bed into a light 20 minute yoga. It is nice

[–]JustAMick2U 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Checking in on this one. I started a new job this summer, which meant 5:30am wakeups, rather than noon. I had become so accustomed to staying up until 2am that this nearly broke me, and almost got me fired from a dream job.

6 months later, even on my days off, I am up and killing at no later than 6:30am everyday. It's awesome!! I read a few pages of a book, throw in some music, meditiate, then workout. By the time I have to get ready for work, I have already done more that day than most people will do all day.

My focus is better, mind clearer, and temperament is substantially improved. Crushing the morning is key to crushing the day!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Early jobs can be a blessing. I'm stuck closing again, but can be productive enough that each day feels like 2 in 1.

[–]doveenigma13 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Unfortunately my cancer and treatments can sometimes make morning into early afternoon.

I should really try to wake earlier and make a real effort into healthful routine though, and thanks for posting this.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I hope you're researching your type of cancer and educating yourself on how nutrition affects both the treatments you're on and the cancer itself. My mom does her regular routine provided by the oncologist but she also does a lot of alternative things and eating for her specific needs. It's changed quite a few times over the last two years but she is doing really really well.. I hate seeing folks with their port hooked up sucking down a milk shake and a burger.

[–]doveenigma13 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yes I do. The side effects of radiation and chemo I'm taking really cause a lot of fatigue. There are times I just can't get going.

[–]RedSuns_ 1 points1 points [recovered]

You can do this. You just choose not to.

[–]doveenigma13 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nope. Cancer treatments cause a fatigue you wouldn't understand without experiencing it yourself.

[–]Soarinc 4 points4 points [recovered]

I wanted to add that morning routine starts the night before. Getting a good sleep is EXTREMELY important on how you feel when you wake up.

[–]petrichordog 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Would you rather be extrmeley underslept or extrmeley Overslept. Out of curiosity.

[–]Dookiestain_LaFlair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You will feel increased fatigue either way, but if you are underslept you will also be angry and irritable, which is good for motivation and intimidation. When someone pisses you off and you scream "I've slept 4 hours in the past 3 days you little fuck!" it's a lot more intimidating then yelling "I just slept for 12 hours!"

[–]cazzah123 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Wish I could do this.

I work construction. I get up at 4:30, rush around making breakfast and some lunch, then leave for work.

When I get home I have a snack, go to the gym, then by the time I'm back I have maybe 30-45 mins to myself before I go to bed.

This shit sounds great on paper, and it's gonna be great for those desk job dudes that don't get out of bed until 7:30. But for some this just isn't feasible

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Do you want to labor forever? If so then you can ignore this because you're already successful. You're doing what you want to do, you even get to take your prepped meals and hit the gym daily. If you want more you need to do more, despite your current work effort.

[–]cazzah123 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well if you can figure how I can fit an extra 1-2 hours into my already full 24 hour day I'd be thrilled to hear it.

[–]morphite65 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's alluding to the fact that your lifestyle is defined by your job. Don't like your lifestyle? Change your job. (Easy to say but not easy to do, etc)

[–]Bossman28894 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I get up every morning at 5:45-6am. Take the dog for a 30-40 min walk. Jump in shower, listen to gf bitch about leaving the house, make eggs and coffee, then start my day...I could do without the gf nagging at me over every little thing

[–]angryguy4444 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Why don't you show her the door?

[–]Bossman28894 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Because I'm beta toad. Working to try and make things better, but seems like everything keeps getting under her skin

[–]angryguy4444 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You wont make things better. By trying, you will only make them worse.

[–]Bossman28894 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Well my approach lately has been "not giving a fuck" I would have responded with "really with the bull shit already?" It started of kicking and screaming, but I've seen her give in

[–]angryguy4444 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't understand why you put up with this.

I mean, are you married? Do you need her for housing? Or in any way?

[–]theneonsoulsurfer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great post. You'd just described my grandfather who preached these same ideas. He was a very successful businessman, self made with a lot of discipline.

[–]Penguin327 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Disciple_of_Libertas 1 point2 points  (2 children)

OP have you read Gorilla Mindset? Mike Cernovich, an author who has contributed to this sub, talks about many of these things in the book. Edit: not criticizing OP, just pointing him to something he may not have read.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He's also read The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson.

The reading 10 pages a day equating to 3650 pages a year is lifted straight from there.

That being said, not throwing any hate to OP. Good list IMO.

highly recommend zig ziglar's audios on setting goals. you can torrent that shit. its like 6 disks i think.

[–]NoctivagantUser 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Love the list but I have one problem, the cold shower thing. Now dont get me wrong, I love cold showers but the important thing is that especially in Winter, you dont wont to cold shower all the time. Yes cold showers are good for the immune System, but not daily.

[–]petrichordog 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Thanks for your comment, why not daily.. Out of curiousity?

[–]NoctivagantUser 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It can lead to certain lung problems and the body also needs hot water (not above 32degree!) to wash away bacteria. I recommend, if you plan to coldshower, to do Intervall showers -> 2min cold ->2min warm and so on

[–]petrichordog 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Interesting. Cheers for your comment. Any sources?

[–]NoctivagantUser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty much anything about contrast shower. Though i would recommend it doing in Summer daily, it just isnt that good in cold, windy, times.

[–]warningsign93 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This article is truly what TRP is about IMO. Inspiring. Thanks for the great read.

I am wondering, because i work on a ship vessel and my shifts are 6am to 12pm and 6pm to 12pm for 10 days.. how can i get proper sleep?
