January 3: Daily Routines

Daily routines are a springboard to action.  Daily routines are an excellent tool we can all use to feel more and more accomplished, successful, and confident.  A daily routine can help us feel like we are doing something for ourselves that will help us to be the best version of ourselves we can possibly be for that day.  Consistently doing small things each day, builds momentum, empowers us, and helps us build confidence and credibility with ourselves.

In 2014, decided to build a morning routine around what I want to do.  Usually, at the end of an 8 or 10-hour day, I was too tired, distracted, or unmotivated, to do what I wanted to do, so I put off the things on my daily list of things I wanted to do for another day.

I found that through my morning routine and waking up an hour earlier every day (waking up earlier started with 10 minutes, then grew as my confidence and desire to did), I am able to do what I want to do before I go out to do what I have to do.  Doing this energizes me.  Each day I follow this morning routine, I feel happier, more fulfilled, and more energetic.  I feel like my life has meaning and purpose.  Through consistent adherence to a daily morning routine I have become a different, more improved, and more evolved version of myself.

The slow, steady, small, incremental, seemingly meaningless tasks, that are a part of my daily morning routine, have enabled and empowered me to live on a higher energy/vibrational level, each and every day.  I am literally able to do more for myself and others, with energy left at the end of the day!  It seemed impossible, and counter-intuitive, but by waking up earlier to do what I want for the first part of the day has served me well.

Adding just one small, consistent change to our daily routine may change the outcome of our lives, over time. 

Just one small improvement made consistently, over time, has the potential to forever alter the trajectory of our entire life.

There are many things that can help us create a more enjoyable, meaningful day.  We can read 10 minutes every day while we eat breakfast.  We can listen to motivational YouTube channels while we get ready for the day. We can save our favorite quotes from Facebook and Pinterest into the favorites folder on our phones, and review them every chance we get throughout our day.

It’s easy to consistently do something small and easy every day! 

It is also easy not to.

Once we follow a personal routine for a week or so, it will become easier.  In a month’s time, it will become a habit.  In three month’s time it will become a lifestyle.  This lifestyle shapes our personality, and when personality persists, outcomes and results change to match the new us that we become.

What we put into our minds at the start of our day will effect the entire rest of our day.  Done on a consistent, daily basis, these things will enlighten our minds, elevate our moods, and continuously make us a better version of ourselves.  It is absolutely worth trying.  

Habits which are repeated, literally change the physical, hormonal, and chemical structures of our brains and bodies.


Having a routine where we get the same sleep hours, have a regular eating schedule with the same healthy meals and snacks, take vitamins every morning, and get at least 10 minutes of exercise a day, can and will stabilize our brain chemistry and improve our mood, thereby altering our lives for the better.  It will empower us to think more clearly and make better choices.  Following a personal morning routine is ABSOLUTELY worth doing.

I have been completing a daily morning routine since 2014.  It started off incredibly small, and became something energizing, powerful, and valuable to me, and to everyone I know.  I am a better father, a better husband, a better man, a better employee, and a better friend, because of it.  To see what I now do, or for suggestions that have worked wonders for me in my own life, google The goodinthehead Habit-Hacking Challenge.

I started very small, by saving just one quote a day.

I went to work on my beliefs,

and then my new beliefs went to work on me.

Today’s challenge for myself:  Today I will make an easy, personalized routine for myself, and follow it every day to start my day off right, and help me to eventually accomplish my goals.  I know this will slowly but surely help me become a better version of myself each and every day.  I will remember:  CONSISTENCY IS KEY.
