Leading life and business strategist, Tony Robbins, believes his best morning routine can help you feel better and will give you the best chance of success. Robbins has coached leaders around the world for more than 38 years and is the author of five best selling books.
In this brief interview, Robbins talks about how to start your day feeling your best. A morning routine is a great way to start your day because, as Robbins puts it, emotion is created by motion.
Robbin’s best morning routine starts with giving yourself just 10 minutes, structured as follows.
- Listen to some calming music and start with some breathing exercises.
- Write down three things your are grateful for in the next three minutes.
- Say a prayer or reflect for family and friends for three minutes.
- For the remaining three minutes, list the top three things you want to accomplish.
I know this 10 minutes seems too simple to be the best morning routine, however, the beauty is in its simplicity. If Robbin’s framework was complicated, you would probably put it in the too hard basket. Take action; try it for one week and see how it makes you feel. If you don’t feel like it works for you, try something else.
As Robbins explains of the people he helps, “I’m not here to give them a gift, I’m really here to help them open up their own gifts.”
Knowing is not enough. Practice this ritual and tweak it until you find your best morning routine.
