Reading Self-Developement Books Helps Wake up in the Morning

Recently I became super lazy and struggled waking up in the morning. I kept going to bed late after midnight and waking up right before heading to work, whose routine finally made me exhausted and frustrated because I felt all my days messed up.

I started reading a book titled, Stop Doing That Sh*t by Gary Bishop, I made a determination and recorded a video of myself making an oath, promising 7 rules.

First, it was Before-Bed Rules

  1. I must not watch any YouTube or Netflix 30 minutes before bed.
  2. I must read self-developement books for 30 minutes before bed.
  3. I must write a journal and clear up to-do list for tomorrow.

Second, it was Morning Rules

  1. I must make my bed right after waking up.
  2. I must clean my second floor, especially around my bed.
  3. I must drink a cup of water and put some water on my face.
  4. I must not press the snooze button when my alarm rings.

Last night, as I promised, I read the book written by Gary Bishop, and actually it helped me wake up in the morning. I didn’t take any lazy actions and started moving as I opened my eyes.


For the next 100 days, I will do my best to keep my oath and change the bottome line of my life. I always believe changing the morning routine and before-bed routine must upgrade my lifestyle with high productivity. All begins with the littlest action.
