How many times have you tried to create a morning routine that you can stick to? You’re definitely not alone! While I had a daily practice for years, it wasn’t until I read The Miracle Morning that my routine really boosted my productivity and energy. Now I faithfully incorporate both the bullet journal and Miracle Morning steps into my everyday life.
(If you haven’t read The Miracle Morning yet, I highly recommend it. Hal can convert even the latest of night owls to have wildly productive mornings! Head here to grab a copy.)

What Is the Miracle Morning?
The Miracle Morning is a set of six morning rituals that are based on the habits of successful people, best practices from personal development books, and the author’s own experience. He honed the routine into the easy-to-remember acronym, “SAVERS.”
These six daily rituals simplify your morning routine by giving it structure:
- Scribing (writing/journaling)
For more details on each of these, check out my earlier post here, where I detail my Miracle Morning Bujo routine and share some of my favorite spreads! If you want to find out more and get started with the Miracle Morning, check out some of my favorite products below:
Miracle Morning Bullet Journal Cheat Sheet
The SAVERS steps don’t have to be a strict checklist, but rather a guide for your morning. But one of the challenges with this is knowing what to do in the moment. Some mornings I find myself drawing a blank on what to incorporate in certain steps of my SAVERS routine–usually the visualization, exercise, and reading steps.
That’s why I think it’s helpful to create a Miracle Morning cheat sheet in your bullet journal! It gives you some easy go-to’s whenever you’re drawing a blank.
You’ll simply brainstorm some ideas once, and use it as a guide if you’re stuck for inspiration in the morning. Once you have a spread in your bujo to store these ideas, you’ll likely find that more come to you, so you can expand this list as you get more inspiration!
I tried to keep the Miracle Morning visualizations generic and also include something fun, like my someday/maybe list. I also made sure to have things that I could visualize for work or home.
- Finish my to-do list
- Rock a presentation at work
- Kill a workout
- Finish a someday/maybe item
My favorite part about this Miracle Morning step is that you don’t have to do a strenuous workout, just enough to get the blood flowing. So I like to keep this category open so I can still pick something that fit my timing and mood.
- Go to the gym (a full workout)
- Walk 1 mile
- 15 minutes of yoga
- 5 minutes of stretching (foam roller or resistance band)
I dabble in the category all day but I do make sure to cross off one item on this list as a part of my bullet journal morning routine to continue to improve myself.
