    In case you missed it here’s Gary Vee’s morning routine…
    1. Wake up.
    2. Grab phone.
    3. Take poop.

      I have rarely set an Alarm for the past 10 years.
      I go to bed and wake up round the same time, for most of my days.
      So I get up when my body is ready for getting up.

      Forcing myself to get up, makes me miserable and ruins my day.
      My discipline is in the evening, shut down the screens and go to bed in time.

        Ever since I can remember, I hated waking up to alarms, even when I had a beautiful nature/bliss alarm tone, it took me 30 years to figure out that I needed to reset my psyche and realign my circadian rhythm. Turns out, that's exactly what psychedelic mushrooms do (and then some..) - I now wake up between 5-6am, far happier than I ever woke up to any alarm, even at 11am. TL:DR: The answer is to align with nature and use your internal clock for the best waking experience.

              Great video as always!
              I've found that the best thing for my morning routine is having a strong night routine. I pack my bag and lay out my clothes, clean my room, pack lunch for the next day, etc., then in the morning I'm ready to go. Being prepared prevents me from making more excuses to not get out of bed.

                I'll never understand why Americans' first think when facing a problem is always to mimic wealthy people:
                1) There is this survivorship bias that I'm sure you all know about
                2) There is no link between being able to solve problems and being rich (which mostly results from your environment)

                  I really like taking a relaxing bath with essential oils after taking my kids to school. I enjoy it so much more in the morning than at night. 🤷🏼‍♀️ It gives me energy and makes me smell good for the rest of the day. It is especially nice this time of year when it’s cooler outside.👌

                    You need a separate echo dot and you set the alarm and then mute the dot from taking voice commands. Works so well.

                      What has really worked for me on the waking up in the morning part is to set one alarm. Instead of a number of, in 5 min spaced intervals. While it doesn't stop me from hitting the snooze button, it's been far better than the alternative.

                        I think you changed your approach, matt?
                        to me you've always looked so determined and perfectionist and actually had me inspired for changes in my life (that I almost never did, to be honest, but still).
                        Now seeing that doing all those "things we should do" it's sometimes difficult for you too I think I saw a more human side of you, which is great!
                        This is a compliment, in case its not that obvious, I really enjoy your work here on youtube, glad I find your channel a long time ago.

                          PLEASE stop using palo santo and white sage. They are both endangered because they are being over harvested by non natives. They are so many other alternatives you can use for smoke cleansing.

                            You just give me an idea: describe my perfect morning routine including the new habits I wanna have and then just do it.

                                I really appreciate how honest you are. I love watching morning routine videos, but always feel bad about myself because none of the things they suggest work for me. I also fall asleep trying to do meditation in the morning. I hate mornings, and I’m learning to accept that I just do my better work later in the day and that’s okay. But I also want to start my day off strong. I’m still working on it.

                                            I’ve really enjoyed the Five Minute Journal each morning, it’s much more structured than just freeform journalling.

                                                  Thanks for the video! Walking definitely has a therapeutic effect especially in morning.

                                                  I Get out of bed, hit bathroom, jump on treadmill for 30 minutes, watch your videos while on Treadmill, shower, protein shake, start day. Have to incorporate dogs walks before starting day next. When you think about it, you really have to start your day before starting your day.

                                                    Journaling in the morning got easier for me when I got myself a deck of Tarot cards. It gives me a starting point to ruminate on the day ahead. I draw a card every day and then ponder its meaning.

                                                            My morning routine: 6 am alarm. Get dressed, make coffee, put on one load of laundry, drink coffee while checking emails and social media, wake my daughter, hang out washing, make packed lunches, do 15 minutes of housework (see Fly Lady Zone cleaning) and we both leave the house at 7.45. Most people don't have the whole day to play around with. After work there is the routine of making dinner and supervising after-school activities and homework.

                                                                Please consider using something other than sage to burn if your not spiritual. It's actually at a premium now because so many people want it for the "aesthetic" and it's become inaccessible to those who do use it for spirituality. I suggest incense or candles as alternatives!

I am a fan of your 30 days experiments .There is a spiritual spiritual guru called sadhguru from India . He has a mediation technique called Isha Kriya . He says it is quite effective .
                                                                        You can try it out incorporate in your morning routine and also make a segment on it if you are interested . I am sending you the link . If you invest 10 to 14 mins that should be sufficient .
                                                                        I hope you give it a try .
