Morning Routine for a 6-Figure Coach

Are you a morning person? It’s easy to be a morning person when you’re living in a beautiful place like Hawaii, but trust me – there are days when it’s still a struggle to get up and get going. That’s why I’ve worked really hard on a morning routine that works for me, that sets me up for success for the rest of the day. Sure, there are times when I feel tempted to skip through my morning routine to get work done (I am totally obsessed with talking to my clients, and I get so much energy from my interactions with them) but I definitely regret it later on in the day when I feel less present and like I gave my power away early on. Having a great morning routine is something that I value, and it makes me feel like a total #boss, ready to take on the day.

I always recommend a morning routine to my clients. It doesn’t have to be this one, but it needs to be something that works for you. To give you some inspiration, here’s a rundown of my typical morning routine.

Wake Up, Kick Ass

After I wake up and am lying in bed, I have to exercise lots of motivation not to check my phone or email. I’ve found that doing that first thing in the morning gives my power and attention away, which sets a really bad tone for the rest of the day.

I try to make my gratitude practice the first thing I do every morning. I roll over, get out of bed, and list three things I’m grateful for. I challenge myself to list three new things every single day, which trains my brain to focus only on the good for the rest of the day. Life isn’t always perfect, and some seasons can be HARD. Girl, I totally get it. Doing this is a great way to try and shift towards a more positive outlook.

After my gratitude list is complete, I meditate for at least ten minutes. I used to use the app Headspace, now I just focus on my breath and let that center me. After that, I feel more focused and light. Then, I get up and move my body- sometimes that means going to the gym, sometimes it’s a walk outside if the weather is gorgeous.

Breakfast of Champions

I pretty much have eggs + egg whites every single morning – lately, it’s been eggs with spinach and onion. It keeps me full and my blood sugar stable throughout the morning. Having protein + fats and not carbs first thing in the morning is key to avoiding a major sugar crash.

After breakfast, if I have some time, I’ll read. Entrepreneurs are emotional athletes, and I believe that ongoing learning is important to my success. The first personal development book I read that got me hooked on this is The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle.

Work Prep

Before I get started on work, I brain dump everything that needs to be done that day. Whether it’s IG trainings, interacting with clients, booking calls, or stocking up on groceries, it all goes on the list. Then from there, I write out a ‘power list’- the 5 major things I want to accomplish by the end of the day. If I’ve done those 5 things, I ‘win’ the day. Once my power list is done, I open Google Calendar and schedule each task. Structure creates freedom and I want to be able to play later in the day. After everything is scheduled, it’s on to client calls and, before I know it, the work day is done and it’s time to head to the beach.

I wanted to open up my morning to show you all how I set myself up to get things done every day. Having a structured morning helps me feel centered, so I can give more to my clients. You can do the same! Once you get this down, it shouldn’t have to change too much from week to week.

Hit me up on Instagram or Facebook if my morning routine resonated with you. I’m always excited to get to know people better!
