A Five-Minute Morning Routine That Anyone Can Do with Dhru Purohit

Season 2, Ep. 99
This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Vivobarefoot.Are you a fan of morning routines but have trouble staying consistent with them? If your answer is “YES!” this episode is for you!Here’s the thing about morning routines: how you start your morning often sets the tone for the rest of your day. When we jump straight into our social media feed, the news, or the priorities of others, our day gets hijacked right from the start, leaving us feeling unrooted, ungrounded, scattered, unfocused, and uninspired.Most of us know this to be true, yet so often I hear from my community that the most common reason they can’t stick to a morning routine is that they feel they don’t have enough time.Setting aside just five minutes (yes, five minutes) to nourish your mind and body in the morning is enough to transition into the day feeling calm, relaxed, and ready for whatever comes your way.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru shares an ultra-easy framework for morning routines that his dear friend, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee, created so that anyone can implement it, stick to it, and maybe even look forward to it every morning.Also mentioned in this episode:-Try This: A Five-Minute Morning Routine That Anyone Can Do-Happy Mind, Happy Life: The New Science of Mental Well-Being-Dr. Chatterjee’s morning routineFor more on Dhru Purohit, follow him on Instagram @dhrupurohit, Facebook @dhruxpurohit, Twitter @dhrupurohit, YouTube @dhrupurohit, and TikTok @dhru.purohit.
