How would you rate the quality of your morning routine?
Do you have a morning routine?
... Or do you just stumble blindly toward the coffee pot and hope for the best?
Kidding aside, how you start your morning can determine the trajectory and success of the entire day. It can be a hectic time. Work. Getting kids ready for school. Breakfast. To-do lists. For many people, it's total chaos.
For others, it's a mindless routine that moves them toward whatever obligation pops up first. But there's one thing you can do for a perfect morning routine. Every time. It only takes 5 or 10 minutes.
And respected research publications such as American Psychology and the Journal of Comparative Neurology have published findings that show it leads to:
Higher levels of positive emotions
Improved productivity and goal accomplishment
Increased feelings of joy, excitement, and optimism
Stronger immune systems and lower blood pressure
It’s called gratitude journaling.
Now wait... before you roll your eyes, consider the facts:
Studies show gratitude journaling not only helps you become a happier person... It also improves productivity and mental toughness.
A 2006 study published in Behavior Research and Therapy found that Vietnam War Veterans with higher levels of gratitude had a lower chance of suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
And a 2003 study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that gratitude was a major factor in personal resilience following the September 11 terrorist attacks.
Gratitude doesn't just make you happier. It makes you tougher. More resilient. And more capable of dealing with stress in a healthy way.
Dr. Robert A. Emmons is one of the world’s leading scientific experts on gratitude. Regarding a long-term research study of gratitude and its effects on human health, Dr. Emmons made some astounding discoveries:
"Participants who kept gratitude lists were more likely to have made progress toward important personal goals (academic, interpersonal and health-based) over a two-month period compared to subjects in the other experimental conditions."
Researchers have also shown biochemical relationships between gratitude and dopamine. It's a neurotransmitter that plays a critical role in energy levels and nervous system health. Feelings of gratitude activate brain regions associated with this “feel-good hormone,” which can boost overall well-being.
Gratitude boosts happiness, mental toughness, and productivity. If you do it at the right time, it can transform your entire day... And perhaps your life.
But here's the problem: most people are rarely in the mood to thank their lucky stars first thing in the morning. Let alone make it a ritual.
To solve this problem, we developed a streamlined, guided journal. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete. And it's not just about gratitude. It's about clearly identifying what you plan to accomplish each day.
And it's about getting all the junk bouncing out of your head and onto paper. (We call this the "mind dump.")
The Sunrise Manifesto helps you accomplish these aims. And it fits easily into your morning routine. All you have to do is place the journal somewhere you can't miss it...
Next to the coffee pot.
On top of your laptop.
Next to your running shoes.
Then, take a few moments to fill out the prompts and jot down any loose thoughts bouncing around your head. It's so easy to use that it practically completes itself. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel when you take a proactive, direct approach to your morning.
This is THE morning routine for productivity, well-being, and clarity.
Boost productivity and well-being in less than 10 minutes per day.
The Sunrise Manifesto Guided Morning Journal is the only journal designed to boost both productivity and well-being.
Clear up "mind clutter" & organize thinking.
Balance productivity & gratitude.
And jumpstart your day.
In only a few short minutes each morning, the Sunrise Manifesto helps you focus on what's really important.
With a minimalist approach to journaling, you can reap all the benefits of practicing gratitude... While also boosting productivity and focus. The Sunrise Manifesto Guided Morning Journal uses simple prompts to guide you toward gratitude and relaxed productivity.
Leveraging the Art of Minimalism—and backed by the science of Positive Psychology—The Sunrise Manifesto sets the tone for your entire day.
Designed for the ambitious and the busy, it’s a hybrid of traditional journaling, devotionals, and guided diaries. All wrapped up into a simple, easy-to-follow guided journal. The beauty is you don’t need to be the “journaling type” to reap the benefits.
This category-busting morning journal is founded upon one simple philosophy: how you start your day largely determines how successful it will be—and your level of happiness as you move through it.
It has 3 sections: The Daily Manifesto, Daily Mind Clutter, and the Weekly Review.
THE DAILY MANIFESTO: GUIDED JOURNAL QUESTIONS
By focusing first on gratitude, you jump-start your day while improving overall feelings of well-being.
We all have an abundance of things, people, and circumstances in our life that we should be thankful for... But take for granted. Regularly reminding ourselves of these blessings isn’t just a “New Age” practice. It’s rooted in good science (Positive Psychology). And it's proven to make you happier.
The Daily Manifesto combines gratitude practice with a minimalist approach to productivity – asking you a few simple questions that keep you focused on what's really important.
The short journaling exercises you’ll perform each morning instantly lower stress levels by exporting “mind clutter” out of your head – and onto paper.
Do you ever wake up and immediately feel stress, even before the day begins? Or, do you often get side-tracked first thing in the morning... And find yourself slogging through your day without a clear purpose?
This is exactly why the Daily Mind Clutter section was incorporated into the Sunrise Manifesto. Regularly exporting unorganized thoughts and ideas out of your head and onto paper is one of the best ways to instantly focus your thinking.
While this concept seems simple enough, it proves incredibly difficult to consistently employ. That’s why the Sunrise Manifesto was designed with a minimalist approach—so you can hit the ground running each morning after only a few moments of purposeful, directed thought.
Minimum input. Maximum reward.
THE WEEKLY REVIEW: PRODUCTIVITY PLANNING
Each week you’ll be guided through a simple Weekly Review that allows you to (1) identify the most important projects and goals in your life, (2) outline a clear outcome, and (3) set up the next 1-3 crucial action steps.
This weekly process serves as your compass. It ensures your actions align with your highest priorities, week to week. Like the Daily sections, the Weekly Review only takes a few minutes to complete.
Bottom Line: This little journal helps you clear the junk out of your head and move through the day with focus.
The Sunrise Manifesto Guided Morning Journal is the only journal designed to boost both happiness and work efficiency. Combing the two crucial elements of a balanced, successful life.
