Energy Building Morning Regimen
- Make your bed. The Four Hour Guru said that you don’t have to do it perfect like you work in a 4 star hotel, but you should make your bed, the first thing in the morning. Tim explained to Dr. Oz that making your bed is important because in a world of uncertainty, making your bed is one thing that you can control. You build momentum from the moment you wake up and you come home to a task that is already done.
- Do 5 – 10 reps of any physical type of exercise. Anything to get your blood moving and activate your nervous system. This should only take a minute. On Dr. Oz, they did elevated pushups right on the bed that they had just made.
