The Perfect Morning Routine

A lot of people have a lot of opinions, here’s mine; daily habits that are good for you will change your life, they did mine;

  1. Set a bedtime that gives you exactly 6 hours of sleep (+ 15 minutes in bed to fall asleep; no phone) take melatonin before bed to help you fall asleep. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time daily. This will fix a lot of problems. I try and pick a bedtime around 10 hours before school/work or so, the goal is to maximize your time in the morning when you’ve got energy, so say school starts at 8, then I’d say sleep from 5pm-11pm then grind afterword
  2. I do a dream journal immediately afterword
  3. Then I make my bed
  4. A cup of coffee, tea, lemon water, a multi vitiman, a motivational video, clean your face and check the scale
  5. Meditate for 20 minutes while jogging – YouTube has some guided meditation that’s great
  6. journal for 10 minutes, use the phrase today I… (will do blank, or want to do blank work wonders as a way to get things flowing.
    This should all take 50 minutes or an hour at most.
  7. Gym time – 2 hours; I’ve found upper/lower split works best alternated with mma (2 hours of mma on those days) and a 30 minute cardio burn in the end, alternate cycling, running and swimming. I try and listen to a podcast at the gym or an audiobook also.
  8. Cold showers, not necessarly ice cold but at least the same temp you’d get in a swimming pool.
  9. Pick a hygene routine and stick to it: exfoliator, moisturizer and sunscreen for starters, and charcoal toothpaste is bomb.
  10. You ever seen that scene from the wolf of wall street? Beat your chest like the alpha you are in the mirror, no joke it feels good.
  11. Cook your own breakfast, Gordon Ramsay is who i like to watch
  12. Reading – a trp book for 20 minutes and ten minutes on a Philosophy, either Buddhism or stoicism;
  13. Watch an AMS video and a Charisma on Command Video, also Charisma Matrix

Around 4 hours for all of this, total around 5 hours.

  1. Learn a language – Duolingo to start, Id actually recommend 2, alternate them, ex: Russian on Monday and French on Tuesday, pick one you’d like to learn and one that’s difficult like I did. Get two crowns on duo, watch an occasional video on it;
  2. Play guitar – 30 minutes, they’ve got good tutorials on youtube.
  3. Learn to dance – 30 minutes, same deal as above
  4. Yoga – puts you in a positive mood and strengthens your core like crazy – 10 minutes a day is all you really need
  5. Cook your lunch – Gordon Ramsay 30 minutes
  6. Take a 20 minute nap to give you energy to get through the rest

Total that’s 2 hr and 30 min; around 7.5 hours total.

If you have to move some of this stuff around it’s fine, but make sure you set aside time to work on your purpose, minimum 1 hour, ideally 2 hours a day 7 days a week. For me it’s writing novels, so I do that on my lunch break at work;

Everyday: don’t jerk off to porn, try not to at all

On your off days from school/work here’s your schedule – off day 1.

Forget the normal schedule – all day this is what I do: toastmasters public speaking, fishing, improv class, hiking, voulenteer, weekly shopping and a date night, either take someone but usually take myself out, just depends on how I’m feeling.

On off day two I do a dopamine fast, that means no external stimuli that produces dopamine at all here’s what you can do; clean house, meditate, walking, sitting in nature, writing (book), garden, blog and water; no food, tech, or talking, basically my day a week to be a fucking monk.

If you want to do therapy do it on off day 1, and don’t break the bank, but in my experiance before I started this routine around a year ago I was where you are – massively depressed and suicidal, but I fixed myself without nobody else’s help, and that gives me confidence like mad. I’m not perfect, I’ve still got a long way to go I still get depressed one day a month, usually on my fuck off days, but I have an idgaf mentality, I feel like I took myself from a peasant to a prince to a motherfucking king by my own hand and that’s a feeling no redpill book can give you, cause hell if I can do that then I can do anything, and I didn’t need anyone but myself to do it.

Remember don’t be looking for females, if you happen to find them then great but if not who gives a fuck, you’ll have no time for oneitis, no time to be depressed, you’ll have massive purpose and massive improvement. Plus you can always invite a chick to do something you were already scheduled to do.

your most common spots, or mine, to find chicks will be the gym, or the mma place, dance class if you do it, cooking class if you do it, in the park, improv, shopping, voulenteer, and during a date night a girl may give you choosing signals, up to you whether or not you get them.

Good luck

Edit: every two weeks or so I take a do nothing day, where I just basically fuck around; it keeps me from burning out and reminds me how good my routine actually feels. Dont feel too guilty about missing a day here and there, this is a rigorous schedule, but I try and remember that my time is limited, and every second I don’t use wisely is a second I waste. If you miss a daily thing or two that’s fine, remember if you do 80% of this list it’s still more than 99.9% of people do, and all provide great benefits.

Edit 2: forgot to mention friends, you’ve got four friends already through these habits – First yourself that’s the person you’ll be spending the most time with so treat him like the chad he is, second AMS is a legend, third Charisma on Command helped me out a ton with general social dynamics and charisma matrix with more specific social dynamics, those are your four friends; I’d say one best bro or maybe two who have the same goals as you in real life is a must, but don’t go looking for them, it’ll just happen long enough after hanging at the places you do as those are self improvement spots, just make friends/talk to the people there, not everyone you’re not trying to waste all your time yapping like a female, but strike up a convo on occasion and you’re bound to connect with a dude or two, and at least one or two of those will end up as a best friend.

Writing 15k words in a day

Writing 15k words in one day was breathtaking for me.

Today I’ve written over 10k words total including this article, that’s the most I’ve ever written in one day and it’s been absolutely eye opening for me.

How did I do this? How can you do this? These questions will be answered down below.

I’m sitting here as we speak typing on my phone at my house, my WiFi isn’t working, and I’m big into self improvement so I’ve been looking into something called a dopamine fast – no external stimuli or pleasure of any kind, just you and yourself. This is extremely good to reset your brain I’ve heard.

I woke up at 4:30 am like normal and got going right away, spending around an hour and a half writing a chapter of my book, around 2.5k words down. 

Then some meditation, water and a break for my brain.

Afterword I did some more writing on my book from 6:30 – 8:30 it was a super long session and I got a bit over 3k words done this time, 5.5k total; I had to take a long break, I took a walk, with my dog and did as much meditation as I could manage. When I got back I took a cold shower and by the time I was done it was 10:00.

Back to my writing a huge 4K word chunk by lunch time and two more small chapters were done, that’s 4 total and 9.5k words; of course these chapters will need a lot of revision, but that’s not what I’m doing today, I’m writing.

After my water filled lunch I took a long break, I took a long walk to a lake where I watched nature and zoned out for a bit, meditates, did some yoga, came back and wrote in my journal for 200 more words, then decided to do some cleaning – laundry, dishes, everything I could and I got lost doing that, by the time I was done it was after 4. 

I decided to write some more, in two hours I got just over 2k words down, bringing my total to a hair under 12k, it’s 6pm now, and I make the decision to try to hit 15k, that’s a bit over 3k words, and I have an 8:45 bedtime, so not much time left, I do some meditation, and get back on it; I finish my 5th and 6th chapters in 2 hours adding 5.5k words on top of what I had. That’s 17.5k words total, a lot of words.

Atmiditly I do stay up past my bedtime, after writing this 500 word article and doing a bit more writing on my book, maybe 1k words in total, although that writing was mostly revisions.

In total I did 18.5k words in over 9 hours of total work, I had to take breaks inbetween to keep my sanity, as it’s very mentally draining writing this much, and as much as I believe it helped me out, especially with the writing speed it’s not something I’m going to do but maybe once every now and then. The quality of words written was also lacking, after revisions probably only 10-12k of them will stay.

Perhaps next time I’ll go for 20k words, as it was really close to that number, and perhaps if I’d taken a bit less of a break at some points, or if I’d pushed my sleep off longer I could’ve hit it. But alas, I’ll take 18.5k words

Why about 6 hours of sleep is ideal.

First this isn’t a scientific blog post, it’s an opinion piece. I’ve recently began a new sleep schedule 10:30 Pm – 4:30 am, that’s only 6 hours, yet I’m completely awake and productive throughout the day why? One simple thing that you’ll find out later.

How should we define sleep? Most people use it to kill time, or because it makes them feel good but I’m of the opinion this is the wrong position to take, I believe redefining sleep is the first step to gain the full benefit of this sleep system, and the way to redefine it is as a necessary part of the human existence, a need not a want. If you treat it this way you’ll be less likely to overdo it.

Why is overdoing it bad? Because it adds up, if you sleep 9 hours a day that’s 3.35 years of sleep every ten years, or 0.335 years of sleep every year or a third of it, that’s more than an entire seasons worth of sleep, basically every year you’ll have slept from Halloween to leap day. If you sleep 6 hours a day that’s 2.6 years every 10 years or 0.26 years every 10 months, basically you’d be sleeping 3 months a year instead.

That may not sound like a lot of difference, but if you live to be 100 you’re saving up 13 extra years worth of time where you don’t have to sleep – what does that amount to? 114,000 hours – that’s a lot of time, enough time to learn 31 different languages, learn guitar and piano, become a doctor, a professional chef, write 10 books, and get a black belt in Brazilian Ju Jitsu, and still have a few thousand hours to spare.

So since we’ve redefined it how best to go about using this new knowledge, simple – set a specific bedtime everyday and stick to it, especially a specific wake up time. For example mine is 10:30 – 4:30, and I stick to it.

Something to remember is that it takes the body 15 minutes to fall asleep fully, that’s without a phone or any kind of distraction. So that means I get to bed at 10:15 and remove distractions like my phone from my area.

Another item to use is melatonin, as it helps you fall asleep faster into a deeper sleep, I’ve been taking melatonin for awhile, my rule of thumb is it takes 30-45 minutes to kick in fully, so I take it right around 9:30 so that I fall asleep on time.

The major thing that keeps me going are naps, one 30 minute nap around 1:00 pm keeps me going until the evening. I’ve found I’m tired as fuck, and can’t stay awake if I don’t.

So that’s my secret, go to sleep and wake up at the same time, take melatonin, remove distractions, and get a good nap in daily.

Eminem Survival Lyric Breakdown

“Wasn’t ready to be no millionaire, I was ill-prepared
I was prepared to be ill though, the skill was there”

These kind of lines are why eminem is e goat, perfect wordplay.

“From the beginning, it wasn’t ’bout the ends
It was ’bout busting raps and standing for something, fuck an acronym”

Good wordplay in the beginning, and that kind of shit happens, goals change over time.

“Cut the fucking act like you’re happy, I’m fucking back again
With another anthem, why stop when it doesn’t have to end?”

Mans put out 3 full albums since then, it doesn’t seem like he’s stopping any time soon.

“It ain’t over ’til I say it’s over – enough when I say enough
Throw me to them wolves and close the gate up
I’m afraid of what’ll happen to them wolves
When the thought of being thrown into an alligator pit, I salivate at it”

That’s a badass line, flipping the traditional saying of being thrown to the wolves on its head.

“Wait is up, hands up like it’s 12 noon, nah, homie
Hold them bitches straighter up, wave ’em ’til you dislocate a rotator cuff
Came up rough, came to ruffle feathers, nah, egos
I ain’t deflate enough, last chance to make this whole stadium erupt”

Not quite the last chance, man has released 3 studio albums since then, one of them “kamikaze” definitely ruffled some feathers.

“I can see the finish line with each line that I finish
I’m so close to my goals I can almost pole vault over the goal post”

Okay, good wordplay in the beginning, the second sentence kind of sucked though.

“And if I don’t got enough in the tank, maybe I can just siphon enough
To fill up this last can, man will I survive in this climate or what”

I don’t know, climate change is killed.

“They said I was washed up, and got a blood bath
I’m not a rapper, I’m an adapter, I can adjust
Plus I can just walk up to a mic and just bust”

Introducing Eminem the adapter: he can fix your car battery, or your phone, or even your phone all for 3 easy payments of your soul.

“So floor’s open if you’d like to discuss
Top 5 in this mothafucka and if I don’t make the cut
What, like I give a fuck, I’ma light this bitch up like I’m driving a truck”

What are you Optimus prime too?

“To the side of a pump, 0 to 60 hop in and gun it
Like G-Unit without the hyphen, I’m hyping em up”

You hype me up often, killer fucking verses.

“And if there should ever come a time where my life’s in a rut
And I look like I might just give up, eh might’ve mistook
Me for bowing out I ain’t taking a bow, I’m stabbing myself
With a fucking knife in the gut, while I’m wiping my butt”

I guess that’s why it took him so long to put out revival.

“ ‘Cause I just shitted on the mic, and I like getting cut
I get excited at the sight of my blood, you’re in a fight with a nut”

I’m about to bust a nut.

“ ‘Cause I’ma fight ’til I die or win
Biting the dust it’ll just make me angrier, wait
Let me remind you of what got me this far, picture me quittin’
Now draw a circle around it and put a line through it, slut
It’s survival of what?”

Yeah, Eminem he’s not gonna quit, he never gives up except for all those times he gave up!

“So get your ideas, stack your ammo
But don’t come unless you come to battle, I’m mad now jump in the saddle
This is it, it’s what you eat, sleep, piss and shit
Live, breathe, your whole existence just consists of this
Refuse to quit, fuse is lit, can’t de-fuse the wick
I don’t do this music shit, I lose my shit”

I feel ya em, if I don’t write I loose my shit too, so I can relate.

“Ain’t got shit to lose, it’s the moment of truth
It’s all I know how to do, as soon as I get thrown in the booth, I spit”

What are you just hacking lugiez at the wall in a denies booth or something?

“But my respect is overdue, I’m showing you the flow no one do
‘Cause I don’t own no diploma for school, I quit”

That’s good for you, but kiddos at home, don’t quit school, unless you’re me and you quit college, then it’s okay.

“So there’s nothing for me to fall back on, I know no other trades
So you’d better trade your fucking mics in for some tool-box-es”

I guess he’s planning to become a mechanic… well he did say he’s an adaptor so he should be fine.

“ ‘Cause you’ll never take my pride from me
It’ll have to be pried from me, so pull out your pliers and your screwdrivers”

Well nurse, Let’s start with a scalpel.

“But I want you to doubt me, I don’t want you to buh-lieve
‘Cause this is something that I must use to suc-ceed
And if you don’t like me then fuck you”

You’d like to wouldn’t you, gay looking boy, what’d you say looking boy?

“Self es-teem must be fucking shooting through-the-roof ’cause trust me
My skin is too thick and bul-let proof to touch me”

What about scalpel proof?

“I can see why the fuck I disgust you
I must be a-llergic to failure ’cause every time I come close to it
I just sneeze, but I just go atchoo then achieve!”

That last line looks good on paper but sounds cringe.
