How To Design Your Perfect Morning Routine | Vishen Lakhiani

by Vishen Lakhiani November 12, 2020
Does your morning routine make you feel energized, connected to your family, and ready to unleash your superpowers at work? In this video, I share the most powerful morning hacks I discovered that always set me up for an awesome day.

How I Hacked Meditation, Exercise & Breakfast


How we start our morning can set the tone for the rest of our day–and our lives.

Research has shown that those precious morning hours are linked directly to feelings of achievement, success, happiness, and overall wellbeing, so we probably need to pay more attention to our morning routines.

In the video above, you’ll learn:

An optimized meditation technique that includes ALL 6 of the main benefits of meditation
The 4-7 minute fitness protocols I use to stay in optimal shape and raise my energy level in a day
The difference between breakfast ‘as a ritual’ and breakfast ‘for fuel’ and what helps me function at my peak

For those of you who prefer to read and digest, here’s what I break down in the video:

1. The 6 Phase Meditation

After spending decades studying the art of meditation and training over three million people, I can confirm that this is by far the most optimal flow I’ve found to get my mind prepared for the challenges of the day.

2. Minimum Time (& Maximum Effective) Dose Workout

My favorite is Tabata, a high-intensity interval form of exercise that gives great results in just four minutes. My kind of workout.

3. My Killer Workout Playlist

No workout session is complete without setting the tone with some vibey music. You can find it on Spotify. (WARNING: it’s pretty heavy on the Eminem-front.)

4. Breakfast For Fuel

We are what we eat. And what we eat first thing in the morning is the fuel that sets us up for the day. So I always ensure that my diet is top-notch and full of sustenance. One of my favorites is the WildFit smoothie–it’s a game-changer.

5. A Bulletproof Boost For My Brain

I use Brain Octane Oil in my coffee, but you can also start with coconut oil and see the results pretty fast. Bring on the buzz!
