Miracle morning – Hal Elrod
Reading Time of Article: 4 min
At Apostrof we like to keep up with all the latest books that everyone’s talking about on productivity and personal development. We couldn’t pass over the bible of many Americans and its creed: get up earlier to get a grip on your life. In a factual, practical way the author encourages us to become aware of the importance of giving ourselves some time every day. Of course, the concept then encourages us to get into action, which can produce big effects. The method doesn’t just involve setting your alarm clock really early! It’s about establishing a morning ritual lasting anything from 6 to 45 minutes, and involving several phases: silence, affirmations, visualisation, physical exercise, reading and lastly keeping a journal. The main aim is to achieve a general sense of serenity in every part of your life. As it’s not always obvious how people should change their pace of life, the author encourages his followers to design their own morning routine. The book is an ode to the present moment and to investing in your own personal development. Though be careful you don’t fall into the trap of always wanting to get more done, so you end up exhausted and slipping towards burnout! If you want to wake up at the crack of dawn, you need to be in bed by 10 pm. And make sure your sleep is regular. Getting up at the same time every day is really good for your body clock. This method also has the merit of introducing a type of pause between waking up and leaving the house. Taking time over it reduces stress. It’s always better for you not to be running around from the moment you get up!
