My Morning Routine brings you a brand new, inspiring morning routine every Wednesday to help set you up for a more productive and enjoyable day.
My Morning Routine is a blog with a simple premise: highlighting the different ways in which notable and interesting people spend their mornings. It was created by designer Michael Xander and writer Benjamin Spall, who specializes in the topics of sleep and habit formation. The combination of Xander’s design and Spall’s insight make is an intriguing one. The site provides inspiration to readers for ideas that they can incorporate into their own morning routines in order to have a healthier and more productive day. One new post that profiles a new individual is added each week, some of them featuring relevant sponsors like task management system Omnifocus.
Each of the posts on My Morning Routine features a short interview with an interesting individual. The posts are searchable by type — writers, entrepreneurs, yoga and meditation, frequent travelers and parents, early risers and morning exercisers. People like Factory 45 founder Shannon Whitehead, author Austin Kleon and Daily Beast tech and health editor Tessa Miller have all been profiled. Those individuals and the many others that have been featured have all answered the same set of questions — “What is your morning routine?” “What time do you go to sleep?” “How soon do you check your phone in the morning?” and more. It’s interesting to compare the different habits people have that help them wake up and get started on a productive day. The site’s worth checking on a weekly basis to see who Spall and Xander have decided to showcase next.
