Review: Mornings have always been tough for me.  I have trouble waking up, and before I had a baby, I was notorious for hitting snooze several times before finally getting up.  Now that I am an early riser (baby’s choice, not mine), I am trying to have a more positive outlook on starting the morning.

This book certainly gave me food for thought, but I found the interview portion (which makes up the majority of the book) to be a bit redundant.  Many of the women have similar backgrounds (life coaches, artists, yoga instructors, etc.), so it was difficult for me to relate to them.  I think the inclusion of people who lead lifestyles similar to my own would have made this book far more relatable to me.

The most useful information, in my opinion, was found in the final chapters of the book. These chapters summarized common themes shared by the interviewed women, and provided a list of suggested activities and exercises that can help you craft an enjoyable morning routine.  I especially liked that the author recommends that you start small, changing only one little thing at a time, until you have a routine that relaxes you and puts you in a positive mindset for the rest of the day.  I will be putting these ideas into practice as I create my own morning ritual.
