Try Starting Your Day Like Tim Ferriss

Dec 15, 2016

How do you kick off your mornings? Hit snooze, doze off, hit snooze again, repeat a few more times, before finally rolling out of bed? (Same.)

But in honor of the impending new year, perhaps it’s time for a more efficient start. With that in mind, we turned to productivity expert Tim Ferriss to see how he starts the day.

Unsurprisingly, he accomplishes a lot. While there’s no mention of an ignored alarm, his first 60 waking minutes do include: a 20-minute meditation session, tea with two tablespoons of coconut oil or powered MCT oil, followed by a contemplative journaling session. (If you’re wondering, MCT oil is a concentrated version of the fatty acids in coconut oil and other natural foods) .

Yes, it seems—ambitious. But seeing as Ferriss has built a name for himself getting more done in less time (his latest book, Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers, explores the habits and rituals of “billionaires, icons, and world-class performers”), this could be just the start you’re looking for. Good luck.
