Waking up at 4am some days and 5am from Monday to Friday works pretty well for me. On weekends it depends on what I have planned or what I did the night before, but normally I wake up at 6 or 7am and go for a long run. It works differently for every person, depends on age, children, work, fitness, and a lot more things.

Perfect response to the “Why can’t you wake up early like the rest of us high performers?” for anyone who’s a night owl would be “Why can’t you find it within you to stay up late and keep working like the rest of us night grinders?”

god thank you .. I am crazily going mad with this experiment.. not 5 am but ive tried with 6 and the whole day is ruined.. tried for more than 15 days... I am able to wake up but still it doesn't seem to work out... crazy thing is that I can be awake till 1 but unable to stay productive after 10... any suggestions Matt?

I wake up at 5:00 a.m for the last decade of my life (I’m 20) in my country is really normal for people to do this, we call “late” 8:00 a.m. In my culture is normal but it’s really difficult when we are a night owl it’s awful you always tired and unproductive so agreed with you when you said that by waking a certain hour of the day that doesn’t not guarantee productivity. Everyone it’s different we should learn to listen to our selves more

One of the first things I learned in the rehabilitation program I'm in for burnout is that nightowls that have work early in the morning and early birds who have night shifts for long periods of time are so likely to experience burnout that it's almost guaranteed to happen so paying attention to which one you are is incredibly important, you also might not stay a nightowl or an early bird your entire life, it can shift

Great video. Matt, apart from the context, I feel all these habits and morning routine videos relating to being successfully suffer from a survivorship bias. Sure they worked for these billionaires, but there are an equal number of people if not more, for whom it didn't work. There aren't any videos on the latter. We watch these videos without trying to understand ourselves first. We see the same pattern in media which only showcases the successful companies and the "overnight" success of individuals.

Maybe I should making a different change. One I know is right for ME. And not just bc some successful person on YouTube did it😳

I had to do that for school... my mom had to start her work before me. She is a teacher. I had to wake up to get ready for school. No buses to my school came to my house so I had to go to my grandparents. This made me wake up super early every day for 6 months.

Waking up at 5 AM alone does not give you superpowers.
If you wake up grouchy and do nothing about it, its counter intuitive, because without any habits, your brain has many different options and you have to choose when you're at your least awake state (decision fatigue in the morning is not a good start to the day)
But wake up at 5 AM exercising IMMEDIATELY, you will relieve all the morning cortisol you had instantly.
I'm really passionate about this because I've been reading the book "The 5 AM Club" by Robin Sharma and he has a formula "the 20/20/20 formula" that allows you to be In a peak mental state BEFORE doing work so you can actually maximise your productivity.
Everyone reading this, read that book. The actual models show up later in the book if you're impatient for the lessons (in that case, find Robin Sharma on YouTube). But read the book if you actually want waking up at 5 AM to work for you.

You could have just took some melatonin 15 min before bed and aswell have 3 alarms gapped about 2 mins. Have alarms about 6 mins before your desired wake up time. But first know if your a 5, 7 or 8 hour sleep kinda person.

I wake up at 5:30am, and get up at 6:00am. I stretch and think and pray before my feet hit the floor, and since I have started doing that, I am so much more awake and productive and actually get out of bed at 6am, and do the things I planned on doing, which I did not do when I set only one alarm, and expected myself to wake up and get moving in the same 30 second time frame.

I really love the advise he gave in here, I never thought of things quiet like that...i recall a time where i was skinny and glowing with youthful looks, at that time I was eating a lot of fruits and very little carbs...i ate sugary treats, veges and seafood. I read somewhere about a balanced meal of this and that etc. cutting out my indulgences, now I've gained weight and look older than my age...i realise i should never have changed my working formula! slowly going back and I'm getting there again...

Hi Matt! This is year I started with a goal to quit alcohol completely which is easy for me because I don't get urges.
I also started with some home workout to stay fit and will soon go to a gym. I also try to meditate every day. I am struggling with a sleep schedule because I sleep around 12am and if I have to wake up at 6 it becomes really difficult especially during winter.
Also with eating habits which is disastrous because I eat a lot of processed snacks containing sugars and preservatives. I like watching your videos. Can you post a video about your gym exercises or daily fitness routines? Thanks :)

Im not a promoter by any means, but I use the app sleep cycle, it really helps you plan and monitor your sleep habits. The way I understand, it uses the microphone to asses wether you’re in rem sleep or not. When you’re in rem you don’t move. I have the alarm set for between 5am and 5:30am. It will chime when I’m restless, making that buzzer less of a shock to hit system. I no longer need to hit snooze as often. Saved my mornings!

That is amazing business opportunity that you are using! Most people try to commit to something for a life time or years! They start with great plan and fail in few months. You say you will stop doing something in 30 days and you give advises for other people about you 30 days trail. Brilliant!

hey! i let you my experience about waking up at 5am, during about 2 years i was waking up at 5am 5 day a week (mo-fr). and it was so necessary to me to go on on the day that if i did not do it i was just a zombie. in this moment of my live i had a really monoton routine.
waking up at 5 am, drink a coffee take my bike to go to the gym and start my gym routine at 6am, finished at 7 to take a shower and go to start my work as a waitress at 8am, then working till 18:00 and then just cross the street to star the uni class at 18:30, finish them at 21:45 and enjoy whit my friends till around 22:30 then arrived at home around 23:00 and go directly to sleep. during the weekend i was cooking my meals for all the week. 
I´m still a life but i can not wake up at 5 no more, may because i have more free time during the day so i don't really need to wake up so early to do exercises, i actually still don't find the balance and i actually don't exercising that often as i want. still working on that. 
thanks for your videos! and sorry for my english in case you can not understand something.
