Your Morning Sets the Foundation for Your Day
“By simply changing the way you wake up in the morning, you can transform any area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible.” — Hal Elrod (author of “The Miracle Morning”)
Yesterday I presented the idea of you taking some very specific steps, each and every morning, in order to successfully create and maintain the habit of health. (Read the post here if you missed it)
Success stories like those of entrepreneur Richard Branson, and motivational experts Brendon Burchard and Tony Robbins, have highlighted their insistence that having a good morning routine gave them the edge they needed to create the life they desired. While that credo certainly applies to business success, in my opinion it’s even more important when it comes to achieving and maintaining good health − which is a lifelong endeavor.
Think about it for a moment… What is your morning routine?
Do you drag yourself out of bed after hitting the snooze button a few times, hastily make yourself presentable, grab something quick and portable to cram into your mouth on the way to work, then drink a couple of cups of coffee in an attempt to kick-start your day?
Or maybe your morning is a bit less hectic than that, but you still find yourself having a tough time getting going… even if you start with great intentions. You soon give up on the great plans for healthy eating you had, or fitting in exercise, or your to-do list… all because the “fires” in front of you just keep coming and you can only do one thing at a time.
Either scenario is common. So is a combination of the two.
Now, we won’t get into the importance of sleep here, and all the things you could (and probably should) be doing to ensure a good night’s sleep so you awaken super-refreshed and give your body the opportunity to be its best.
When it comes to both sleep and health, we may know what we should do, but actually doing it is much harder. Not only is change difficult, but when it comes to establishing healthy morning routines, we often have some very specific objections! Here’s how you can overcome the three things standing between you and a healthy morning routine, which ultimately sets the stage for your overall health.
Objection #1: I’m Not a Morning Person
“But, I hate mornings!” I hear you say. “I’m not a morning person.” First off, the more you say it, the more it will be true. If you believe that, it will be true, no matter what. Only you have the power to change that. However, simply taking action will create change too.
What do I mean by that?
You may not have the motivation to get up a little earlier because you dislike mornings, as a rule. But the simple act of doing so, taking that action, will begin to create the motivation. Especially if you persist, and have the clear goal of putting your health first.
Objection #2: I’m Too Busy
“On the one hand, we all want to be happy. On the other hand, we all know the things that make us happy. But we don’t do those things. Why? Simple. We are too busy. Too busy doing what? Too busy trying to be happy.”— Matthew Kelly (author)
It becomes a bit of a catch-22, doesn’t it? We know what we “need” to do, but we’re too busy to do it. Then we find we’re out of time, for one reason or another.
Before that reason becomes failing health, I want you to think about making a daily investment into YOU. What is the point of being so busy that you can’t fit in 30 minutes to jump-start your day right, if ultimately you become sickly? Don’t you deserve to have a wonderful, full, energetic, disease-free life and to enjoy it all?
Yes, you do! But the price for that is a daily commitment to health and learning how to stay healthy.
Objection #3: I Have Tried and Failed
“Giving up is the only sure way to fail.” — Gena Showalter (author)
Maybe you’ve tried to incorporate lifestyle changes before. Maybe you have begun a complete health make-over and it lasted a couple days. Weeks. Months. Then old routines come back. You kick yourself for failing. You feel guilty. You wonder why bother.
All I can say to that is: Practice makes perfect. Just because you have tried and failed before does NOT mean you should not try again. I’ll say it again: health is a lifelong endeavor. And as the quote above cites, the ONLY way to truly fail is to give up.
How have you overcome resistance to making changes in your life? Let us know about your own objections, and especially ways you found to get around them.

Your morning sets the foundation for your day
A good morning routine is so important when it comes to achieving and maintaining good health¬—which is a lifelong endeavor.
How to overcome the three things stopping your healthy morning routine:
- Not a morning person? Take the action and persist by setting a clear goal of putting your health first.
- Too busy? Remind yourself that you deserve to have a wonderful, full, energetic, disease-free life and make a daily commitment to health.
- Tried and failed? The only way to truly fail is to give up.
Hello Family; Yes, Attitude= Altitude. When we hate or dislike we tend to perpetuate that feeling, ” where thoughts goes, energy flows”. We change our minds all the time, from food to what to wear, why not this. It is a habit or something that we experienced that was not good. One person hated the # 5 and it was something that happened at age 5. Forgiveness healed it and now the # 5 has no attachments to it. Another saying is ” If you don’t take time for health, you will make time for sickness”, a negative saying but the point is there. Stress is tiring, hate and anger is tiring, but staying in the moment is refreshing. “Changing your life may save your life”, and may prevent illness. Loving everything-everyone will change your life, as in ” LOVE ONE ANOTHER” ” Judge not, Neither Condemn” Great sayings, and True sayings. Love you, Yourself called alan.

Al-Anon Camily Groups incorporate ll these ideas in a better wy of living. I’ve been living it whelp of other members & God the Power greater than any one or group to live in the now, sharing gratitude & grief using the Serenity Prayer.this has kept me sane with inner peace; tried & tested for 55 yrs. I agree w/your ideas & thank ypu for passing them on.
Al Newman says
The thoughts you go to bed with, will affect how you wake up. If you lay down and think, “I am SO tired”, you will wake up drowsy and tired. If you lay down and think, “I am going to pop out of bed at 5a.m energized”, you will.
A very useful discussion. Morning routine actually set the pace for the rest of the day and beyond.All it takes is a discipline approach that will re-program your mind. I truly believe this. Thanks for the confirmation.
Good idea for an article but your solutions still rely on willpower. I’m sure there is a psychological weaving to be done. We don’t get up late when going on holiday. I love ttac but I don’t find this blog very inspiring. Also, the house is really cold in the mornings ….
That sounded awfully rude, it wasn’t meant to be! I just meant to say, I think it’s deeper than that.

I don’t sleep much at night due to autoimmune issues , so early morning is not my routine till God restores my body including sleep
Ann weir says
I too, have illnesses that hold me back in the morning, night and all day for that matter. I, too, have stated that until God restores me, I cannot have a morning routine. But, I continue to suffer, and it gets worse. I’m 50, and dealing with menopause…Hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, etc. I’m not counting on god or anyone else to help me with this. I’m either going to do something on my own volition, or I’m going to lay here and die. If God has anything to do with it, then maybe he’s waiting for me to act first. Maybe there’s something to the saying that ” the Lord loves those who help themselves.”..? With the epidemic of fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, and with the all too familiar companion of severe depressive disorder (resulting in ridiculous amounts of pills, which in themselves are a problem, and I’m a smoker.. Another problem I have to do something about) I really fear that the only way to fight these ailments; no, killers, is for me to get up off my fat, lazy unmotivated ass, and do something. Anything! I might try yoga and stretching at first. I’ve tried slow, steady walking, but my gait was off, because of an injury to my hip, so I threw my back out doing that. Most of my ailments are self-induced. They’ve become worse because I haven’t done damn thing about it. If God is there, he sure doesn’t like laziness, and why should he help me if I’m not willing to put forth any effort myself? Well, good luck to you. I wish you the best, and I’ll send good healing vibes your way. I hope you can feel better, so you can do something about making yourself well again. Or at least improve yourself. Peace and love.
And a Blessed New Year to you and yours, Ty!
Thank you for the great info you send often, I do appreciate it. However, I cannot keep up reading it all.

Hi ty, I have Hashimotos and other autoimmune diseases and bacteria and viral issues (lyme, EBV etc) and i get extremely tired. I am now in a routine getting to sleep at about 2- 3am and waking about 6, watching cartoons to relax me, then back to sleep till midday. If I don’t get this amount of sleep, I seem to get very sick and immune system crashes.
Should I be trying to wake up earlier and stay awake even if I don’t get enough sleep?
I would love to get up early but I’m just worried my health fails after I do.
Rita Ferguson says
Hello Georgie, and this is also for Sharyn,
I, too, require a lot of sleep because of my disease (Stage IV persistent ovarian cancer) and I cannot get up early in the morning. I suffer from overwhelming fatigue as well as a host of other problems.
HOWEVER, regardless of the time one awakens, one must have a morning routine. Prior to being diagnosed with cancer several years ago, I became a Certified High Performance Coach, taught by Brendon Burchard.
Here’s my suggestions to you and to all who are sick and who have a difficult time getting up: If you can’t get up early, that’s ok – just have a routine when you do wake up.
I start every day in the same way: As I open my eyes, I thank the Lord for another day. I thank the Lord that I can get up by myself, wash myself, dress myself and cook for myself and husband. I ask the Lord, “What’s on your schedule for me today? How can I impact the life of someone else today?”
I go to the bathroom, weigh myself, and drink 12 oz. of filtered water, which is staged by my bedside. I always shower – regardless of how I feel – and I always get dressed. I do not leave my bedroom in my pajamas.
I go to the kitchen and take the time to make a healthy breakfast . . . even if I’m eating breakfast at noon!
Psychologically, when you are chronically ill, getting washed and dressed each day is huge. When we are sick, we must eat properly! When I am fatigued and these activities seem too much for me to handle, I ask the Lord and my Guardian Angel to give me the strength to power through them. They have never let me down.
I credit the concepts I learned (and now teach) from Brendon Burchard in High Performance Coaching and the knowledge provided by The Truth About Cancer for keeping me positive and doing as well as I am. I am thankful that I stumbled up on Ty Bollinger and The Truth About Cancer. The symposium was incredible!
Lisa Heaney says
I’m sorry to hear you have such a hard time with the various illnesses you have. I suffer from chronic fatigue to due certain illness, so I know how it can be a totally downward cycle with trying to get enough rest so that your body is strong and your immune system doesn’t t get hammered as a result. When I’m in a routine…. it really helps my immune system. When it’s out of whack… I’m plagued with constant infections and illnesses.
But… you said something there that caught my attention… you said you have got in to the “routine” of going to bed around 2-3am. From what i can see Ty is not suggesting we all wake up at 5am like Richard Branson does to go work out and then mediate etc… he’s suggesting we have a routine, whether that’s getting up at 5,6,7 or 8…
Some people work night shifts… so their “sleep time” might e different from what we perceive as “normal”. However, we do know the positive effects of sleeping when it’s dark and being awake when it’s daytime.
Our circadian rhythms prefer this, as we are not naturally “noctoral” species.
I think what Ty is trying to say is get enough rest but make it a routine. If you are waking up and pressing snooze… something is not quite right so have a go at changing it and making it a “routine”.
Try going to bed a little earlier each day maybe by 15mins. Set a bed time routine of washing, making a dark, quiet and comfortable room, light a candle, listen to some mediation or soft music. You clearly need the rest and you are in a routine, just maybe not the ideal one for your body to cope well.
And you can do it. 🙂 Maybe some more sunlight in your day will change your immune system when you get a little more vitamin d.
Good luck! ?
I also have autoimmune Hashimotos and have found help with Functional Medicine recommendations. I recommend checking out Dr. Tom O’Bryan or Dr. Amy Meyers (two of my favorites). Dietary changes are huge, even though conventional medicine says otherwise. Check out some videos on YouTube.
hi Alan have you you ever heard of the ant people abbreviation for automatic negative thoughts I seem to come across those people in the past and also in the present. the next time decent people get on the negative side I will definitely memorize these things and put them out there so it will give them and hopefully a different way of thinking.Jack in Hawaii
Positive attitudes = Endless possibilities ; )
Carol Nardozzi says
Oh my gosh, Ty….I have been getting your emails for ever and have been either ignoring them or deleting them. I finally took a look at it today and by gosh I am going to start a new morning routine tomorrow morning. I bought fresh organic lemons, washed them and sliced them up and filled my pitcher with filtered water, ready for morning. Thank you!
Laura Stell says
Yes, these are exactly my three excuses. I am a night owl, but I am committing to getting to bed a little earlier, in order to be able to get up a little earlier to take care of me, before turning my attention to duties and “fires” that need putting out.
Thank you, Ty, for hitting the nail on the head, so that I can’t continue in denial of my need to prioritize my own health.
Elma Gay says
Thank you for your article and the motivation to be healthy in 2017. I decided to follow your morning routine, except instead of 5 minutes of movement, I’m doing my regular 30 minute program. I usually do my devotions and prayers at night, but I like the idea of doing it first thing in the morning. It gives me more time to process and focus on what I’ve read and prayed. I would also like to include reading your daily blogs, but they will need to arrive to my inbox much earlier than they do now, as they come 4-5 hours after I get up.
Here’s to good health and a Happy New Year!
Valerie Perkins says
I do not usually read your emails Ty because I don’t have time. However, I am on holiday at the moment and read your email yesterday. This morning i followed the five steps but they took me an hour probably because of the time it took to juice my greens. I can’t see me following this routine once I return to work but I will try.
Evangelia Melching says
Oh, Valerie, I so feel you on this, but I hope you find the way that works for you. I get up 30 minutes earlier than usual so I can do a meditation, and I have found that checking the day off the calendar helps me do it every day. The key for me is getting up and getting dressed immediately instead of lingering in my lovely jammies. Keep your morning routine simple but consistent. Truly, how long does it take to drink a big glass of water every morning – that’s just willing yourself to do it. And 5 mins of meditation – there are a bunch of apps that will help you time that. I found a 30 minute guided meditation that works for me because I am stupid in the am – I need to listen to someone walk me through it – the MARC center at UCLA has a free guided meditation that starts my day beautifully. And once you see how mediation/mindfulness focuses you in your life, you’ll kick yourself for not having spent time on this before. As for the healthful drink – maybe juicing in the am isn’t the way to go. So leave that for later – get the water and the mindfulness in and add the beverage when you’ve figured out how to fit it in. I make bone broth in my slow cooker, so all I have to do is dip in or heat up a cup of it – but if this is too crazy for you, you will find a way to do what you can. Small, permanent changes are better than big, temporary ones. I hope you find the path to making permanent positive change in your life! The fact that you posted here shows you are hoping for something, and even though I don’t know you, I am sending you good energy for this!
Hi, before reading this article I was guilty of describing myself as a ” Night Owl” who does not do well in the mornings and am not a ” morning person” and said to myself that I was determined to change that. This wise article has come just at the right time, clearly is a relevant, timely and God sent message. I agree with the quotes Alan has used to assist putting his point across. Thanks for sharing…From here on in, I will start describing myself as a “Skylark”:-)
Sheryl Stacey says
I live in Hamilton, Ontario Canada and would love to purchase this product but you are not shipping it to Canada?
Thank you for reigniting my commitment to self-love. I appreciate how the two articles build apron one another. I also appreciate the suggestions of 5 simple shifts or commitments to myself to put into motion each morning. Thank you for your unyielding commitment to healthy living for all. Shine on!
Thank you, Ty, for all the work you do to help us get healthier and stay healthy. Bless you for being so dedicated and committed so that we can help ourselves to be better in every way. Got my first day all checked off and intend to keep it up so that I, too, may have a healthier 2017.
Nancy Fisher says
About the house being cold in the mornings…..I used to use that as an excuse because my parents always turned the thermostat way down at night. Maybe you are still resentful (as I was) because my parents made me get up really early in the really cold and go to school which I really didn’t like! I dreaded the mornings! As an adult I discovered that I didn’t HAVE to turn the heat down at night. Makes more sense to turn it down during the day when I am up working or gone altogether. I try to have something to look forward to doing each morning. A small accomplishment can change your whole out look for the day! BTW, Then in the summer when it is warm, do you still feel the same way?
I can do all of the routines except for drinking the water. I developed a stomach ulcer after taking an antibiotic for an infection. Drinking water first thing in the morning makes me nauseous. Any suggestions?
Also, whenever my life gets away from me, I spend 5 minutes meditating on my breathing. I find that to be very refreshing. Enter then coffee. Thanks.
Great article and I am following. I enjoy your emails. I find the best way to get up early is to go to bed early. Often the telli doesn’t go on because it keeps me up. I make a smoothie with my nutri bullet which takes all of 3 minutes. (Kale, 1/2 banana, frozen mango or blueberries, almond milk and bone broth powder) I often also take a green smoothie to work for that 3pm tired time. maybe you could put up some smoothie receipes?
I have started 2017 with your worksheet in hand. I am drinking my water, exercising, reading my bible and journaling. I am now checking in to TTAC. Only on day 2, but I do feel less brain fog and have more energy. Hopefully I can lose some weight, but I just want to feel more alive.
Thanks for all your advise and helpl
A-Team Hawaii says
Love your blog Ty, thank you.
For change to occur, It helps to start with “Baby Steps”. If you are in the habit of going to bed at midnight, you’re probably not going to like going to bed at 10pm. Try 30 minutes incremental changes over several nights or weeks and see where you end up. If the house is too cold, get a portable heater to help warm up. If it’s raining get a treadmill or a rebounder. Are you eating past 6pm? Are you drinking coffee, tea or other stimulating drinks past noon? Late night TV? A big no no. Pick up a book instead.
Get creative and tell your innerself that it’s time to stop making excuses. At the same time, love yourself enough not to be too hard on yourself when you slip up. How would you encourage a small child to keep walking or talking? Improving?
For most of us, “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”. This where Baby Steps come in handy.
Willpower along with positive affirmations, among other things, will help change your psychological weavings. Small beginnings become large accomplishments. The Great Wall started with the laying of one brick.
I love the “ANT” people acronym. Thank you for that “tk” Jack in Hawaii. I also live in Beautiful Hawaii.
In a book published by Psychiatrist Dr Daniel Amen, he encourages us to develop an ANT-Eater in our brains and describes 9 types of ANTs. Good read.
Happy New Year to all and remember, 2017 will be better, only if you decide it to be so.

I am not a morning person and at 66, that isn’t going to change. I have been hypothyroid my entire life – and they had me on the wrong medicine until I was 61 years old! I have a pituitary tumor that has also shut down my adrenals, which caused me to sleep 22 hours out of 24. It also shut down production of IGF-1 until my muscles wasted so bad, I had to be on a ventilator. What kills me is that I’ve had that pituitary tumor my entire life – but they didn’t find it until I was 61 and almost dead from it. Now I have to take steroids to address the adrenal issue and keep me out of a coma. The steroids have caused me to have candida overgrowth, so now I am on an anti fungal diet with absolutely no sugar (not even fruit, dairy or grains). Everything I eat is something someone could have eaten 500 years ago. I drink too much water because of the pituitary tumor. So basically, I think I am doing the best I’ve ever done now. I eat NO sugar and I feel the best I’ve felt since I was in my 20s. But autoimmune diseases and the pituitary tumor have taken a toll on my body. Water is the only beverage I can drink. Getting old is a bitch. My best advice to everyone is to avoid sugar in all its forms. It’s in everything. I even found it in a box of regular salt! They are dumbing us down with sugar and making us very sick with it. After I went off sugar, my anxiety left and when I lie down at night, I’m asleep within minutes.
A good morning routine starts with a good nighttime routine! Ask me how I know… 😉 I love to stay up late at night once the kids are in bed, instead of going to bed early like I *know* I should… so my mornings are usually waking up to the sounds of my little ones waking up, and then I have no choice but to hit the ground running! I do love getting up early though, when everyone else is still asleep, and taking time to have something warm to drink, with my lavender beeswax candle burning, wrapped up in my robe while reading the Bible… but why is it so hard to be disciplined at night so that this can happen in the morning?? Welp… guess it’s time for a(nother) resolution. 🙂 Thanks Ty for the reminder that health is a lifelong endeavor!
Dennise Waldron says
I am already exercising and drinking my water and apple cider vinegar doing deep breathing etc before I start my daily routine of housework or going to work. So thank you for the article but a large portion is being done already.
Hi Alec here. I like to get to sleep around 9:30 pm and up at 6:00 am in the morning. Whethe you believe in God or not theres a verse in the bible .in 3 John v: 2 . It says l wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.My point being . You aint got your health you cant
do much . I believe it starts with your soul. Your mind , will and emotions . Your emotions are your feelings. How you feel about yourself
emotionally. Do you get upset easily, have up and down days. .Or áre you generally a happy balanced person. These emotions can be deIt with on a daily basis. At the end of the day we choose the way we respond to lifes circumstañces. Our minds. In Romans 12: 2 it says . Dont be conformed any longer to the pattern (or ways ) of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind .How do l do that .Good question . Getting back to Gods Wofd. The bible .The choice is yours. Lastly .Our Wills. We all know right from wrong. You dont have to teach a child that . In life we generally want to do our own thing. We dont like been told what to do. Its human nature . In Matthew 6: 10 it says Your kingdom come your will be done on earth as it is in heavrn. Yourve probably heard the saying. Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die. So its about lining our wll with Gods will. The Word of God , the bjble. Dont believe what l say check it out for yourself . One last thing What l said earlier..Wether you believe in God or not, lf your sincere .Ask Him
to help you in what ever your need may be.Eg. lord help me in this area of sin sickness and disease in my life. Ive tried everything but you up until now. Give me a new start today. . Thankyou lord you love me. You came to earth as a man (Jesus ) .You died on a cross and shed your blood for me. You rose from the dead on the third day according to the bible. Now your seated at the right hand of God the Father praying for me. Thankyo Jesus .Hallelujah. Praise God in Jesus name.The only name given under heaven where whereby a man must be saved . Thanx for reading !
Sonia Weyers says
I have been doing a Miracle Morning routine for over 350 days straight now, having not been a morning person for almost 48 years prior to that. I started by 6 to 10 minutes and I noticed however tired I was when I woke up, I was more AWAKE after the routine! And after a month or two, I noticed I became more able to go to bed earlier! I feel this has changed my life for the better!
I have been in the restaurant industry for 16 years. I work till 3/4 am most of the times. Being a morning person has always been a challenge because of his. Don’t forget the rest of the world that works 3rd shift or hours like these.
Such good information on setting a good morning routine!! We started it today and will keep it up. Keep up the amazing work Ty and everyone at TTAC! All the best in the New Year!
Hi Ty, I bought your whole package half way through last year (2016), have watched a few episodes and similar to another comment have ignored or simply scanned your emails. This morning I got into the morning routine email and the follow up email. Thank you for your tenacity. Thank you for keeping on sending these emails. Thank you for being you. I am now ready.
Part of my morning routine is to put on whatever workout clothes I intend to exercise in that day, because I find, once dressed to go running or cycling or whatever, the likelihood that I will actually do it is pretty close to 100 percent. Fortunately, I am retired now at age 66, so no one cares if I spend half a day wandering around in bike shorts. … Thanx, Ty, for your emails — I read every single one.
Paul Wightman says
You and Charlene- are a real inspiration! Recently bought downloads of your latest cancer presentation! Yahoo!!! I drink my freshly grated / simmered for about 15 minutes tumeric, ginger, cayenne elixir — with fresh squeezed lemon—every morning. Great inflammation fighter and is a great routine! 2017 is a year of positive change for me. My Far Infrared Sauna is helping too! Also, listen to Dr. Mercola’s Insight CD for meditation… It’s all about having a ‘toolbox’ of things to do to stay on track… I grow my own barley grass to juice (tastes MUCH better than wheatgrass)!!!
Christina Cosse says
What you are sharing right now is really amazing and will change people’s lives, I m physically in pain right now and yes could visit the Dr, not until I find a new one though, Dr’s make me feel scared, insecure, they only want me on chemo, I ve done it it didn’t work, I m done with it!! I know I can do this. My biggest problem now is eating 100% healthy and keeping the right frame of mind at all time, and to commit myself to do good ” for me “, I find it easier to do good for others… Surrounding myself by people who have amazing drives, aspirations, dreams…… I need to be inspired, I lead with my heart☺???
Grace Bell says
Hi Ty today I was so pleased to get started with the five things to get me back on track to a healthier me.ages ago I was regularly jogging and participating in weekend fun runs. Then it was walking for fitness but in the past thirteen years all of that stopped due to a freak accident when my left knee was injured. So no more walking increased weight but I feel I can do this. Began this morning and I look forward to tomorrow. Happy New Year to all at TTAC and thanks.
Juan Antonio says
I have a hard time falling asleep when I wish to go to sleep at night. Sometimes I will wake up a few hours latter and stay awake for hours more. I want to believe the simple phrase you suggest will work for me.
I am 64 and retired so It’s not a big problem. Any suggestions?
I think you should air them again for free. If you budget allows, and it is His Will, please show the complete series again. You are saving lives.
Cathy A. says
Thank you so very much for this – I copied my monthly checklist and agree that this is worth everything to begin taking control again over my decisions – alarm is set!
r walls says
Getting into a routine is a good idea. As a previous person said, not everybody can have the same routine as shown in the article. But the idea makes sense. A lot of people have health issues that cause them not to be able to sleep 8 hours all at once. Others have babies or small children that call their attention as SOON as their feet hit the floor in the morning. (Ya can’t tell a hungry infant to WAIT while mommy tends to her morning ROUTINE first.LOL) Do what works for you…and stick to it. Try tiny changes after a while. You can do it.
Silvia Logan says
I always find morning very hard for me. It is definitely not my favorite time of the day. I tend to get very nervous in the morning, because I worry about not completing my tasks properly. I eat properly for breakfast. I have a whole banana every day for breakfast and one day, I eat a whole apple and the next day a whole pear. Sometimes, I have Quaker oatmeal cereal with 1.5 cups of milk. Other times, I have a whole homemade waffle. Some days, I eat two slices of toast. Other occasions, I have a bowl of cereal. Whenever I eat a waffle or two slices of toast, I have one slice of cheddar cheese. I always go for a walk every morning, because I feel that it relaxes me and helps me calm my nerves more.
Hi Sharyn My daughter has autoimmune as well and could never sleep much at night and can’t get out of bed early in the morning due to lack of cortisol. What she did try, and it made a whole load of difference, was to go to bed very early at night, sometimes by 8.00pm. She had dinner late in the afternoon. For the average person though, if there is one, going to bed early and waking early makes a tremendous difference, to energy, outlook etc. Well, it did to me at least.
Why is it so important and healthy to get up in the morning?? i am not a morning person either and never have been, but when i worked, i had to get up early and i hated it. i would think it would be more healthy to get enough sleep. i am now 84 yrs old and do not sleep well at night–sometimes I don’t get to sleep untill 5 am in the morning, and then i sleep maybe 7 or 8 hrs, so i don’t even have a morning and i don’t care because i’m only interested in getting enough sleep. of course I do get up early if I have to be someplace early and just the thought of having to get up early keeps me awake at night, so as a result I feel terrible the next day. so at my age does it really matter if I don’t get up early? I don’t have a doctor—i don’t take any prescriptions except a thyroid and I get that in Canada because the doctors in the US don’t have a clue how to treat thyroid. I have had thyroid problems for 40 yrs and never found a doctor in the US that made me feel better. I did my own research and found a natural thyroid medication in Canada and now I feel great, so I don’t need a doctor. My husband and I try to do everything as natural as possible, and I believe in everything Ty and his wife are doing. I lost my daughter 12 yrs ago and now I know I could have saved her–i started doing natural things and reading and researching after I lost her because I knew there had to be a better way to live and take care of yourself. thanks Ty for everything you do–
Thanks Ty for the good suggestions on how to get a morning routine (or whenever it is best for you) and all the other good info! I would like to share what I have found from personal experience over the years “drum roll”… that is self discipline. YOU need to take control of what YOU do, only YOU can make yourself change. Many people start something and eventually quit, such as drinking, smoking, chewing, over eating, etc, etc. Folks, the changes are for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. I feel fortunate that I found self discipline through martial arts years ago. Although I do not still practice the arts I did learn taking control of my life and making myself do the things you need to do to stay on track.
This is not an easy thing, its easy to NOT do something but it takes discipline to make yourself DO something. My morning routine started at about 25 years old. First, with stretching like I would at the beginning of martial arts class, head and neck, swinging arms side to side, then incorporating your body with your arms, then feet together gyrating hips, then touching floor with hands, then sit on floor stretching each leg, then 5 sit-ups and 5 push-ups. I figured if I can’t do 5 each of those a day I am pretty lazy! Eventually I went to 10, 15, 20, 25 till I reached my age. Every year I added one more, now I do 57 of each which is my current age at 5’6” weighing in at 128 lbs.
Each person needs to find their own routine. Start with 1 sit-up and 1 push up (its a start), do it for a week, month, year, whatever, then increase it to 2, 3, 4, etc, this gets your routine started just don’t increase allot at one time, there is NO hurry, just DO IT! Since my mom was diagnosed with non small cell lung cancer last March I found your site and The New West Diet my life has changed. I eat mostly a raw diet, as much organic as possible, mostly raw dairy (not allot), not allot of meat (try for organic) and feel very good and good about my self. I do not stay sick very long and I really believe its because of my diet. If you do things in steps it won’t be as much of a shock, but eventually you will be there!
Morning routine to date after getting about 6 hours sleep Oil pulling with coconut oil for 20 minutes, reading TTAC articles, The Alternative Daily (AD) articles, answering emails (all done while eliminating waste from my system, sorry I had to say it), brush my teeth with coconut oil, drink one 8 oz glass of water with 1 TBSP organic raw “with the mother” apple cider vinegar, one glass of water with 1/2 organic lemon & 1/4 TSP cayenne pepper. Then I put 1 8oz cup of homemade bone broth to warm up while I do my stretch/sit-up, push-up routine, then drink the bone broth, eat one TBSP of “Really Raw Honey”, then one 8oz glass of water. This takes about 1 hour, then off to do self employed work duties or the day.
Supper time takes 2 hours to prepare and eat. Starting with a green smoothie with one ring fresh pineapple, 1 TBSP each flax seed, & 100% cacao powder, 1 TSP each ceylon cinnamon, turmeric powder, chia seeds, hemp seeds, 1/4 TSP each cayenne pepper & black pepper (to help absorption of turmeric), 1 apple with seeds and core (peeled IF NOT organic), 1 orange, 3″ piece of ginger chopped (with skin), 1 kiwi with skin & seeds, about 1-2 cups spinach, kale & collard greens combined (chopped), 1/4 cup each organic concord grape juice & water, BLEND, put 2 previously frozen cut up bananas in, BLEND, 7 ice cubes, BLEND until smooth, ENJOY! My wife & I share but I drink approx 32 oz.
While I am preparing my smoothie I am also preparing my HUGE (mostly organic) salad. This consists of spinach, chick peas, 2 garlic cloves minced, 4 sliced greek kalamata olives, crumbled blue or feta cheese, shredded carrot, turnip, celery, mushroom, hard boiled egg, red beat, cut up tomato, cut up red cabbage, diced red onion, all topped with a generous amount of black pepper and sunflower seeds. I use balsamic vinegar and olive oil for dressing. I eat this salad then my main dinner which varies from chicken, fish, mashed potatoes with brussell sprouts, cheese omelet, soup, etc. My theory is to get the good stuff in me first THEN fill up on the main dinner, there is not allot of room for much dinner! 🙂
After dinner I try to lay down for approx 2 hours to let things settle before going to night work. After getting up I have 30 minutes to eliminate waste, get dressed and leave for work on my bike for a 12.5-18 mile one way commute (depending time of year determines the route). When I get home at night I unwind check/write emails, read TTAC & AD articles, get a bit to eat, such as peanut butter, sometimes quinoa, 2 bananas, peanuts, then an 8oz glass of raw milk & 8 oz glass of water, go to bed. I go right to sleep! Sorry this was a long post but it is an example of discipline that I make my self do every day. It is not hard as its what I do, I look forward to it and I am the healthiest I have been my whole life!
Mornings are magic! No matter what cycle of life we are in or how our health is manifesting mornings come every day! Even a little pat on your chest reminds you that you honor this beautiful moment as your eyes open. My mornings right now start at 5:00am and I am on the country road at 5:30am to go to work. (An hour earlier than I need to) hint! I go to bed early so I do feel rested. I have the luxury to drive pretty much alone except for the odd car passing me.
-my meditation is driving really really slow
-my drink is lemon water
-my exercise is setting up my organic food display before the shop opens
-my nourishment is testing out a piece of fruit.
–> I show up an hour early so I can enjoy
-the peace of moving at a pace that allows me to feel my calm breath
-to witness the sun rise on my fruit display out front
-to take the time to be thankful that at this time in my life I have good health!
–> So I choose going to work early as my morning routine. After 1 hour of taking a slow pace I can then jump into the multi-tasking demands of my job!
Not perfect but it works for me! Aaah!
I invariably wake up early, listen to the news for a while until I summon up the energy to get out of bed, have a drink and something quick
to eat (say a banana), give the pup a bite of breakfast, then walk her for a couple of hours or so. When I return home I am often so bushed, especially on hot days, I am ready for bed again. No energy left for the remainder of the day.
Faye Campbell says
Wonderful Article and l enjoy your emails. I think it is a wonderful idea to get up and start your morning with a positive attitude. I always set my alarm l get up drink a bottle of water with my 30 minutes of exercises, l then have a warm lemon juice followed by breakfast after breakfast l have a glass of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar. I have been doing this for the last 3 months and l am feeling so much better for it.
I have more energy, l can do want ever l want l walk my little dog. Getting up early has made a huge difference to my health and a wonderful way to start the day. I am a survivor of 3 cancers and l feel very well, l think attitude has a lot to do with your general health.

Read THE POWER OF WHEN by Michael Breus. He discusses people’s chronotype and it explains why some people are early bird and others are not and what you can do about it. Very helpful.
Hi Ty. I am going to give this a try. Only comment, can you post the morning emails earlier so I can read during the time I do my morning ritual. Thanks
TTAC Customer Support says
Thanks for the feedback Mitzi!
I will suggest that the emails be sent earlier in the day.

Hi Ty. For two days I have followed the routine and notice some diferences as it has helped structure my day. Some of my life purposes have disappeared what with the losses I experienced last year. Coming from a knee replacement the year before followed by the passing of my older sister last fall, then a distant cousin, after which my dear corgi became quite lame – which lasted for about 7 more months after which I put my dear companion to sleep. I did not realize how much she helped to structure my days while giving me purpose to care for her needs until she gave me the sign to let her go.
All these occurences along with reaching the age of 85, and while still quite active, I did have a fall which damaged a front tooth and I now have the expense of an implant, while living on a limited income. Needless to say I have been depressed and feel that I am slowly coming out of it without the use of pills. At my age connections are limited if you can’t afford a graduated care community. So I look to reading and using the internet to feel the connection I need to spirit me on.
Thank you for your work. I attend church also but it is Unitarian. I found this community through taking a hospice course 6 years ago. Though my attendance dwindled over this difficult period, I am back on track following the 7 principles that can guide any life with goodness and purpose while being inclusive no mattter what religion you are or have been. I say this as it has been a year of such division in our country which has been going on for many years. Hopefully we can all add the intention as of this new year to be more accepting and foster our leaders to uphold peace and justice for all.
I really feel for the struggles you’re having with your health, and I strongly advise you to check out the book called “Medical Medium” by Anthony William. It will change your life!
My husband was diagnosed with stage 2a lung cancer last fall. He had the lower lung removed with the prognosis the cancer was gone.
We opted out of chemo and established a immune-building routine. Each morning along with a healthy breakfast, he added essential oils and vitamins and amino acids along with fresh fruit.
However, the lung cavity filled up with fluid which collapsed the middle lobe. Test showed cancer cells in the fluid at stage 4.
Don’t know where to go from here. Can you give me some resources or advice?
TTAC Customer Support says
The best advice we can give you is to consult with one of the doctors/experts that we interviewed in our Global Quest Series. Here is a link to get their information: https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/experts-info-sheet/

I have lived with a “night person” for 36 years and have just about given up on ever getting to bed at an earlier time as I did before we met. (he is a creative type and I have noticed that lots of the creative people I talk to get most of their inspiration late in the evening) We have even resorted to separate bedrooms because he is up and down all night, which wakes me up. He can go right back to sleep; I cannot. He has a pretty long commute and doesn’t get home until 7 or 8 at night… I wait to have dinner with him. He then wants to unwind by watching TV. Since I see so little of him, I figure I should spend time with him in front of the TV. Then I get past the sleepy point and get re-energized and have a hard time getting to sleep. EeeeK!!! All I can do is hope it will be different once he retires in February. At the same time, I think I may be grasping at straws!!
Words to live by. There are ways to handle hurdles (Aka excuses). Thank you for the “baby step” reminder. I tend to be an all or nothing person, unfortunately it ends up being nothing. Still working on it though.
Leslie Durkin says
Great article, as usual! The only thing I would modify is the statement that “practice makes perfect”. One of the things that sticks in my mind from my participation in the Dale Carnegie course is the statement that “practice makes permanent!”. Striving for perfection can be a daunting task, but working towards a goal of making health practices permanent is doable!! Thanks again Ty for all your wonderful words of wisdom.
Your comments were very inspiring and have motivated me! Thanks for taking the time to share!

Do Roy Masters’ meditation technique two times per day. In that “sitting still” God comes to you with His affection and fills you with contentment and more, much more!
