The 29-minute Morning Routine to Dominate Your Day (5 Easy Steps)

Written by Jorge Callaos on Dec. 26th 2020
“What’s a good morning routine?”

Fear not, that’s exactly what we’re gonna talk about here.

Most people overcomplicate morning routines – they either make them too complicated or too long.

Not the one I’m sharing with you.

This daily morning routine takes less than a half hour and only involves five steps.

Most importantly, it takes advantage of all the highest-leverage routines that will lead to exponential growth over time.

So without further ado, let’s get to it: first the infographic, then the juicy details.

1. Make Your Bed (2 min)

The best thing you can do first thing in your morning is to make your bed.


Because small wins build momentum.

It starts your day off with a win, and it helps build momentum right off the bat.

And if your day ends up being terrible, at least you get to come home to a made bed!

So it’s really a win-win whichever way you look at it.

Plus, starting off your day with a daily dose of discipline, while it may seem insignificant, will make a huge change when compounded over time.

It will build your discipline, and that discipline will register in your brain that much more because you’re doing it first thing in the morning.

It will also help make you more productive.

There’s a reason the military requires all its soldiers to make their beds first thing in the morning.

You should too. It’ll build momentum, discipline, and productivity all at once.

2. Drink Water (1 min)

During sleep, your body goes about 8 hours without hydration.

You need water first thing in the morning for a bunch of reasons:

One, your mouth is dry, your body’s coming back from hibernation, and nothing will help fuel it more quickly than a full glass of water.

Two, it will make you more alert, as the early morning hydration fuels your brain, helping you get off to a strong start.

Three, it strengthens the immune system and helps the body release toxins, keeping you healthy and radiant.

Four, it helps promote a sustained, healthy blood flow and jump starts your metabolism.

Five, very few things feel better in the morning than a full glass of fresh water.

So drink up!

3. MOVE (10 min)

You ever feel groggy for the first hour of the day?

That’s because you’ve just woken up from a slumber, and it takes your body a while to adjust.

The solution?

Get a short, but intense, burst of exercise in the morning.

It can be jumping jacks, jumping rope, push-ups, sit-ups, whatever you want!

The important thing is to elevate your heart rate and get your body moving.

Like Robin Sharma pointed out in The 5AM Club, “Neurons that fire together wire together.”

What this means is: your brain will associate waking up with an increased heart rate and higher energy.

Which will help reduce the amount of “groggy time” you’ll feel in the mornings.

Hopefully to no more than a couple of minutes!

Another great thing you may do as part of your 10-minute movement ritual is stretching.

While you sleep, your body gets used to certain positions, and your muscles tighten up.

Stretching your muscles first thing in the morning helps them reset, and gets your body in a loose, “ready to go” state… instead of a compressed, tightened-up state.

4. Meditate (15 min)

Don’t overcomplicate this one.

Just try it out.

Sit in silence, maybe use an app like “Simply Being” to have something to follow along with, and just be with yourself.

If you twitch, so be it.

If you have trouble sitting still, so be it.

You’ll get better at it.

The most important thing is for you to be with yourself before you take on the hectic day.

Which reminds me: do NOT check your phone for the first 30-60 minutes of your day!

Dedicate some time to YOU, to being with YOU.

It will increase your self-esteem and your self-worth in ways you never imagined.

5. Drink Green Juice (1 min)

This is my secret step…

Greens are the secret to higher energy levels.

And drinking a glass of them every morning compounds to unstoppable energy over time!

The best four: Kale, Spinach, Arugula, and Watercress. (TIP: add some D-Ribose powder for extra energy)

Mix ‘em up and watch your mornings get off to a rockin’ start!

Bonus Tip: Wake Up at the Same Time Every Day

Waking up at the same time every day helps regulate your circadian rhythm and improves quality of sleep, which leads to increased energy and productivity.


Over time, these checking off this morning routine checklist leads to morning habits.

And that’s when you start winning.

You start winning when you allow the compound effect to take over and dramatically change your life.

The morning routines of successful people all have one thing in common: they’re done religiously – day in, day out.

What I just shared with you is the best morning routine I’ve ever found, for two reasons:

Firsts, it’s short. So it’s not a drag on your day.

Second, it’s got all the highest-leverage habits, routines, and rituals that will create exponential results with tiny daily investments.

Hope it helps, boss.
