Always evolving, but here's the current format... Takes about 2hr from wake up to leave for work. I absolutely love this routine and fitting in all that I can into it. "Discipline is the path to freedom." -Jocko Willink
- •Play with my infant sonNeed to use this time wisely. Don't want to doze through this!
- •Make a smoothieWater, ancient grains, toasted flax seed, green vibrance powder, spirulina, 3/4 banana (my son gets the other quarter), OJ concentrate, peanut butter, frozen fruit (changes), fresh greens (variety), MCT 8 oil. This is my only food until after 2pm - gets me into ketosis which is a highly alert state.
- •Make tea for my wifeStrong Irish breakfast, lots of honey and cream.
- •Write letters to wife and sonSometimes a full card, sometimes a quick note. This is instead of morning pages which I previously wrote. I do a little more quick writing, too.
- •Deliver breakfast, tea, and letters to my wife and son.
- •Make the bedMy wife is usually out of it by now, we can sometimes make it together.
- •MeditateVarious types. Time can vary from 5-30min depending on how much I need and how much time until work.
- •Write a pageI keep beautiful fountain pens, inks, and incredible paper. This makes it a joy to write and has kept me returning to the page even through the early days of my baby. What I write: quick summary of day, 3 things from last 24hr that were amazing, 3 things learned that I can do better going forward, 3 things I'm grateful for (see gratitude prompts list), 3 things to make today great, affirmations (see affirmations list), and sometimes the four agreements from don Miguel Ruiz. (5-15min.)
- •3min exercises1min handstand. 1min hang from pull-up bar. 1min plank. I do these to a metronome that clicks every 6s. I wait for 10 clicks. (10bom at 10/4)
- •A workout, every dayUsually alternate run + quick yoga, hard cardio, hard lift, long yoga, run + quick yoga, kettle bells, cardio, ... Roughly spacing those things apart. Sometimes bonus if there's more time in day.
- •Weigh in, shave, shower, dress... Kiss family goodbye
- •Listen to podcast on commute
