In our fast-paced world, focusing on a healthy lifestyle is so hard. By incorporating intentional habits into our daily lives and capturing our thoughts and experiences on paper, we may be able to find a way to introspect and be happier!
You may or may not know of Timothy Ferriss but we talk about this man's ideas practically every other day! We especially love his morning and evening routines and journaling ideas.
Interest you? Try them out.
What do you need?
A positive attitude in the morning + a journal and reflective stance in the evening!
This is my routine plan, inspired by Ferriss':
Ten repetitions of any exercise!
For example: 10 jumps OR 10 push-ups OR 10 yoga movements like Talasan or Surya Namaskar
Coffee / Tea
Green or black tea or Indian tea with milk. OR Coffee - black, with creamer or dairy-free alternative. My go-to is coffee with Laird Hamilton vegan creamer
Five minutes of meditation
I usually just sit up in bed, close my eyes and focus on breathing. You can do this lying down too! If you prefer an app, use Headspace's free version - It does the trick.

I took the time to go to the beach this morning for a walk. I am grateful to live by a beach and also to find great company for today's walk.
