25,000 Mornings: 8 Ways to Improve Your Morning Routine- James Clear wrote in Health, Technology and Living


You’ll wake up for about 25,000 mornings in your adult life, give or take a few. According to a report from the World Health Organization, the average life expectancy in the United States is 79 years. Most people in wealthy nations are hovering around the 80–year mark. Women in Japan has the longest, with an average life expectancy of 86 years. If we use these average life expectancy numbers and assume that your adult life starts at 18 years old, then you’ve got about 68 years as an adult (86 – 18 = 68). Perhaps you have a little less than average; a little more if you’re lucky. (68 years as an adult) x (365 days each year) = 24,820 days. 25,000 mornings. That’s what you get in your adult life. 25,000 times you get to open your eyes, face the day, and decide what to do next. I don’t know about you, but I’ve let a lot of those mornings slip by. Once I realized this, I started thinking about how I could develop a better morning routine. I still have a lot to learn, but here are some strategies that you can use to get the most out of your 25,000 mornings.
