Daily Rituals: Tools For A Better Life
The most successful people have a series of habits they stick to daily that allow them to build good practices over time while creating a sustainable pattern for growth. Having daily rituals in place makes successful actions automatic, and is one of the most important keys to success I’ve come across. This page is a sample of my ever expanding daily rituals and habits. These are all habits that I’ve strategically chosen to optimize my health, sense of well-being, and mental performance throughout the day.
The Daily Practice
- Make my morning glass of Tian Chi to get my day started (2 min)
- Start writing The Morning Pages, or some other form of journaling for 30 minutes to an hour.
- Morning Strength Workout with Brisk Walking for an hour.
- Take daily supplements for health and mental clarity. Check out my complete supplement list here.
- I start my work day with Bulletproof Coffee every morning. See this post on the benefits I’ve experienced from this mind-booster.
Note: I am consistently listening to either Audio books from Audible.com or relaxing tracks from Spotify during my commute.
- Grass-fed beef for lunch with some sort of non-starch vegetable. Yes, I’m a Paleo guy.
- Head back home, hit 10,000 steps on my Fitbit One fitness tracking device.
- Also eat sort of Grass-fed Beef or pasteurized chicken for dinner, maybe healthy organ meats, healthy fats, and some non-starch green vegetables.
- Read for an hour. You can check out my Life-Changing Books section for my all time favorites.
- Flexible time. May continue reading, relax, practice boxing on my B.O.B device, or do some stretching (the plough stretch is my favorite).
- One hour meditation. I have seen absolutely incredible results with the Holosync Program from Centerpointe Institute, which you can find out more about in a future blog post.
- Brush up, relax, get ready for bed
- In bed by 10PM, sleeping like a baby. Its my practice to fall asleep focusing on positive thoughts.
Note: I use F.lux on my computer and phone, and also try to dim down any and all normal blue-light in my room at least 3-4 hours before I go to bed. Limiting Blu-light from screens and any light sources supports normal melatonin production in the brain, so you’re able to fall asleep easier.
And there you have it folks, my daily rituals.
