Hal Elrod, author of The Miracle Morning, shares his amazing story and the principles behind having the best mornings to start your day.
Why talk through creating a better morning routine on a marriage blog? Because this is something that has changed the way we live. It’s changed the way we feel. It’s changed the way we view life.
And because there’s plenty of time and reasons for how to be a better wife/ husband when you put these Miracle Morning practices to work.
Throughout this episode we chat with Hal Elrod and learn what experiences, including an extreme drunk driving accident and a total crash of his “American Dream”, birthed this idea and lifestyle change for creating a morning routine.
In addition to being one of the highest rated keynote speakers in America, Hal Elrod is the #1 bestselling author of what’s being widely regarded as “one of the most life-changing books ever written,” The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life… (Before 8AM). He’s also a Hall of Fame business achiever, one of America’s top Success Coaches, an ultra-marathon runner, and grateful husband & father.

I LOVED this podcast! I have been incorporating some of these things into my morning routine since it aired. I have been getting up early to walk our new dog in the mornings and found some of the tips helpful (especially drinking water right away).
