Today's most talented creatives and businesspeople share their secrets to unlocking greater energy, focus, and calm--starting first thing in the morning.

Most of us mindlessly drift from bed to phone to fridge to work. Yet the choices we make during the first few hours of our day have an outsized effect on everything else. Recall Charles' Duhigg's theory of habit stacking: we form habits by stacking actions on top of each other. Whether we like it or not, our morning habits form the stack that our whole day is built on.

From sleep patterns and dietary preferences to electronics use and workout rituals, Benjamin Spall and Michael Xander present readers with a wide range of possible practices to choose from. Some routines are all about early-morning exercise and Spartan living; others are more leisurely and self-indulgent. For instance, Spall and Xander spoke to Arianna Huffington about how she silences the "bad roommate" of self-doubt every morning; to Google's M.G. Siegler on why he religiously drinks bottled Starbucks Frappucinos; and to a former Navy SEAL Lieutenant on why his morning workout routine changes each season.

The point is not that there's one right way to start your day. The idea is to experiment until you've formed a morning routine that works for you--one that makes you feel awake, alert, physically and mentally healthy, and psyched up to have a great day.

Highlighted interviewees include Marie Kondo, General Stanley McChrystal, Jillian Michaels, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, three-time Olympic gold medalist Rebecca Soni, Dilbert creator Scott Adams, Ana Marie Cox, Tyler Cowen, Cal Newport, MIT President L. Rafael Reif, and the President of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios Ed Catmull. Download and start listening now!
