After five weeks of experimenting, I ended up designing a morning routine that was ideal for me.

Just over a month ago, I decided to embark on an experiment to follow the routines and schedules of successful people. I wanted to see what it would do to my productivity, happiness levels, and wellbeing. For an entire working week each, I tried to mirror what Jack Dorsey, Arianna Huffington, Barack Obama, Benjamin Franklin, and Indra Nooyi do in the morning. After five weeks of experimenting, I ended up designing a morning routine that was ideal for me. In the process, I also learned many lessons — both from following routines perfectly, and from failing to miserably. 1. Exercising in the morning always made my day more productive 2. Meditating made a surprising difference in my productivity 3. The hardest time to do the experiment was in the middle of the week 4. Getting the right amount of sleep made a huge difference in my mornings 5. Having a bedtime routine was pivotal to getting good quality sleep 6. It's important to quit habits that are not working for you 7. Tracking how I spent my time forced me to come to terms with how I could do it better 8. Having morning and bedtime routines helped me make decisions based on what I truly wanted 9. I began to realize what activities, tasks, and goals were truly important to me 10. I subconsciously adopted the habits that worked and abandoned the ones that didn't

We will never know if what happens to us is a good thing or a bad thing. Our perceptions of events will change over time

We can all cope with the battles of today. It’s when we add the worry of tomorrow, and the regret of yesterday, that we break down

Something that’s tormented you for weeks, months, even years, could one day turn out to be something completely different to what you thought…and then you feel like a prat for having worried so much

The thoughts you have when you wake up at 3am –don’t take too much notice of them. They’re loaded with twisted logic and by 10am the next day, it won’t seem so bad
