    Many a times I have read books and heard podcasts about how successful people (whether it be financially or in their jobs) have a particular routine that they follow every single morning. Successful people seem to be creatures of habit. They follow a set of rules and rituals to kick start and be ready for the day ahead. This can come in the form of meditation, reading, consuming a healthy breakfast, exercising or spending time with family.

    Do you have a habit when you wake up? What does your morning routine look like?

    Living in Melbourne my mornings don't really have a consistent routine, for example today it took me two different bus rides + train ride and around 2.5hrs just to get to work because the Metro was as per usual failing horrifically. Other then that, as long as my mornings involve coffee, we are absolutely sweet.

    I usually wake up and look out the window to see if the recession is here yet!

    When my business was just a startup, I did not have an office or staff but worked from home with 2 toddlers and a newborn baby, those were tough times.
    I had a routine of getting up at 4 am and getting all my tasks done, emails, writing contracts, etc and also reading for about an hour. The kids started to wake up at 8 am and by then most of my important stuff was done and I was able to handle whatever came in during the day easier with constant interruptions from demanding kids during the day.

    So much easier now that kids and business are both looking after themselves to a certain extent.

    Flat white with one sugar and SMH website. Seems like negativity is always a good thing in the media.

    1. Meditate.
    2.Walk to beach ( see sunrise most days ). I use the ocean as an abundant place where i give thanks, gratitude and other little mind rituals that welcome the day and be mindful of the Paradise in which I live. Continue to walk along beach path and parkland path to cafe.
    3. Long black and scan the papers
    4. Walk home and do some stretching and core and back exercises
    5. Get into the day with whatever activites it brings.....
    6. More coffee is consumed.

    LG :)

    I have a very definite morning routine, but it doesn't involve mediation or anything like that. I just find that my life is so much easier if a lot of stuff is on auto pilot - whether it's getting ready in the morning for the day, or whatever it is. I lead a highly structured life, and I like it that way :D That way I can spare any extra time and brain space to thinking about important stuff!

    Up at dawn each morning, a tug of the box trailer up and down the driveway for 10 minutes exercise and then a hot shower.

    Keep it simple - up at 6am, go for a run/stroll, have breakfast plus fruit at 6:30am. If I get called in early by a client I head to work at 7am, otherwise I do some morning reading/podcast listening and head to work at 8am.

    Get up each morning well before the sun comes up,thank who ever has given me another day in the free world,go for a long walk while picking up the aluminum cans to give to the local Girl=Guides,talk to some of the homeless in the park,sit there and watch the wildlife pass by,and think about the immense privilege it is to live in AUSTRALIA and the extraordinary opportunity that is open to everyone.

    Years ago i when i was driving a taxi in Newcastle long hours ... The dietician had ne in reverse diet... Instead of pasta in the evening i was to eat it in the morning before work and small meals during the day... Fruit was at the END of the day.

    Sometimes i still do this..cook pasta the night before... Eat it for breakfast such as Spaghetti Bolognese and i find my energy through out the day high.
