Bookend Your Day: The Power of Morning and Evening Routines

By Brett & Kate McKay/ Source: The Art of Manliness

You're a college student.

It's midnight. You're brushing your teeth and reviewing how the day went. And you're disappointed.

You had planned to work out, study for an upcoming history exam, clean up your apartment, and find time to meditate.

But none of those things happened.

You woke up late. As soon as you sat down to study in the afternoon you saw some friends who invited you out to eat. And that night you got sucked into aimlessly surfing the internet while the dirty dishes sat for another day in the sink.

You spit out your toothpaste and vow to do better tomorrow – tomorrow you're going to turn it all around. But the next day brings more of the same.

Does this sound familiar? Do you feel like you're stuck in a cycle of good intentions but disappointing follow-through?

There are several things you can do to get unstuck from this rut and start progressing as a man again. Today we're going to talk about one of the very best: "bookending" your day with a morning and evening routine.
