    I listened to Elon Musk’s biography on Audible and it was really really good! I doubt anyone is gonna put a lot of weight on my opinion, but I’d definitely recommend it too!

    Ironically I found your video while sleeping in watching my phone in bed! 😳
    I recently started a new morning routine which has been very good as I recover from time off work.
    I use the word TIBET... the first two letters are medical things compression Tights and my Injection then Breakfast Excercise and Tidy my room. The biggest difference is excercise for helping my activity level giving me endorphins and sunlight.

    I'm 16 and a guy. I've been clean off Coke heroin Xanax viks and countless other benzos and narcotics, I'm really struggling with the physical and emotional aspects of this and I'm not motivated because of it. I used to do sports but my body doesn't work like it did before and I'm having a hell of a time dealing with chronic pain. My confidence is fucked after being clean cuz Coke was my normal and I don't go out much. I smoke what I would say is a lot of weed(thankfully less than before) and would like to cut down on my usage. Probably spend most of my time in bed doing nothing or on my phone or sleeping and when i am up and around I get horrible pain in my knees and back. I'm literally looking for any small peice of advice from anyone. I'm just tryna put my life together and start going back to school (I do independent study) but that's kinda harder said than done.

    How about just fucking quit all those social media feeds? 🤯 It’s all 100% bullshit and your life will improve without it - the amount of time people waste on social media is astounding. Delete your twitter and Fakebook accounts and find more productive things to do.

    I get up at 4 am but do NOT turn on anything on till 8am. No internet, no TV, no newspaper. THIS habit changed my life. Thomas is correct on not loading up you head with negative garbage when getting you day together.

    You can also use Alarmy to force yourself to get up. Set the alarm to shut off when you scan a barcode, put the barcode in another room.

    I tried an app last year that had you do somehing to be allowed to turn off the alarm.
    Taking a photo or answering math problems.
    The photo didnt really work so I had the math one.
    Except appearently doing math when just waking up wasn’t somehing I was good at. And you Only had a short time to solve each problem and you had to solve 3 to be able turn it off. And you could not cheat and use the phone calcuator either as you were stuck in that alarm app until you solved the problem.
    Which became a real issue when I had a friend Sleeping over who had to endure the annoying alarm sound until I Finally solved 3 problems in a row after failing a couple of times.
    Trying to focous on the math problem while the sound is ringing at a high volume made the problem even harder.
    I deleted the app after that incident and used self-dicipline instead.
    Nowadays I have an added incentive with my new coffe-maker which you can set a time for it to start brewing.

    I pre-load my coffee maker the night before and set a time for it to start which is a few minutes before my alarm goes off. This way I know there is allready fresh coffee waiting for me when I get up plus If I don’t get up the coffee will burn and leave me a mess to deal with when I get up, without coffee in my system.
    Plus I guess maybe a slight fire risk though I don’t think so as my coffee maker shuts itself of after a certain time.

    If I wake up naturally before my alarm (up to 1.5 hrs before the alarm) and 1) I'm not sleepy, and 2) I don't fall back to sleep in about 5 minutes, then I'll just get up. This way I avoid the grogginess of of waking up with the alarm, plus I have lots of extra time to do whatever before work. Even with less sleep I feel much better doing this, than if I was woken up with the alarm. Been doing this now for a few months, and I just love it!

    I am afraid I'm not going to read all 1,290 comments before me so someone might have said this...., but a tip for hard boiling eggs, pressure cooker or on the stove, add a tablespoon of baking soda before you put the eggs in. The shells peel right off. Also note: brown eggs are harder to peel than white. :) Enjoy your videos. Thank you for making them.

    I wake up at 7am for work every morning. Every friday and saturday night I set NO alarms in hopes that I will sleep for a longgggg time. I always tell myself "I aint waking up until mid day tomorrow". I always naturally wake up at like 9...its so frustrating but I always end up liking it because I have more time

    3:25 actually your alarm clock is not supposed to be set for you to wake up by. You’re supposed to wake up naturally at a time deemed fit by your body. This can be 6 hours 8 hours or 10 hours. Each person varies and finding out your time is best
    The alarm clock is supposed to be a backup after the right REM cycles to make sure your body isnt starting another cycle when there isnt time

    Also putting your alarm or phone across the room someplace where you can still hear it, but your FORCED to get up to even turn it off. Helps me with this. But you still have to be disciplined enough to set said alarm and place it accordingly...
