A morning routine gets you into the right state of mind, body, and soul so you can tackle the day ahead. However, creating a routine and sticking with it is not easy. So today, Luis dissects 8 habits you can try before 8am to supercharge your day — and how to create them.

These 8 things are some of many things Luis has tried himself that now help him get ready for the day, whether at the office or at home. After years of iteration, he now has a morning ritual in place that really sets him up for a successful day. And that's the same process you’ll also have to follow.

Keep in mind there’s no right or wrong here. There’s only the routine that works for you. So use these 8 things as ideas for you to try, but change, iterate, adapt, or get rid of any of them that does not suit you well.
