  • Every morning, I will wake up at 6:00am after going to bed at 9:00pm the night before in order to feel fantastic and have momentum for the day.

    • Being grateful for everything good in my life
  • Every morning, after I meditate, I will drink a large glass of cold water that I placed beside me the night before to rehydrate my body.

  • Every morning, after I drink the glass of water, I will take a 15 minute cold shower to vitalize myself for the day.

  • Every morning, after I shower, I will take 7 minutes to stretch so my body is prepared for the day.
