Join the 5 AM Club!
There has to be some benefit to waking up at 5 a.m., though I confess that my bed is my favorite hello and hardest goodbye. But when an entire book is dedicated to this supposed life hack, you begin to wonder if you should be paying attention. Check out The 5 AM Club: Own Your Morning. Elevate Your Life by Robin Sharma!
For one thing, waking up early puts you ahead of everyone else and gives you more time to...
Plan out your day
Work on a task for your own self, the end goal, side hustle, etc.
Be more productive
This gives you more time to achieve your goals, but more importantly for me, it allows me to start the day at my own pace and not feel anxious or panicked when I wake up.
BEFORE BEDTIME THOUGHTS:
If you're going to commit to getting up earlier in the morning, it makes sense to invest in quality sleep, and writing down your thoughts at the end of the day helps you do just that.
Create this habit by writing down…

MEDITATE OR SIT WITH YOURSELF:

Sit in silence
Take a brain break
Live in the moment
This allows you to reframe your perspective, deal with emotions, and formulate a better response to anything. This is the most underrated step toward mental wellbeing. Take as many as you need when you need them.
PREPARE FOR SLEEP:
Adding to the points above, creating a sleep schedule is very helpful and is simple as 3-2-1…
3 – No food 3 hours before bed
2 – No drinks 2 hours before bed

Before going to bed, I like to finish a chapter of whatever I'm reading. Choose a time that is convenient for you and read something, whether it is 20 pages, a chapter, or even a page.
Staying hydrated is hard but essential since you are 80% water after all. If you are not very good at drinking 8 glasses consistently, at least make it a point to have water with your main meals, and your health will change.
