Back in 2016, I wasn't in a good space. A miracle morning was what I needed.

A lot of stuff had happened in a fairly short space of time, the kids were growing up and leaving home and after a long period as a stay-at-home mum, I had to try to figure out what I was going to do with the rest of my life.

Only I couldn't.

Every night, I got into bed and wondered what had happened to the day; I'd achieved nothing other than the daily humdrum of housework and running around. I didn't know how to stop that; how did I create new things in my life? I needed to break that habits, break the habitual patterns that ran my life because I certainly wasn't doing what I wanted to do, I was just doing the same things, over and over again.

I logged on to Amazon with no clue as what to type into the search bar. What did I want? What was I looking for?

A long time ago, someone suggested I start my day by journalling, but I didn't have a clue how to even begin. Every time I picked up a pen, it just hovered above the page while my brain struggled to think of anything to write. So I put “journalling” into the search bar. Three books came up, two by a woman named Kat Loterzo (also known as Katrina Ruth) and Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod. I bought all three.

The blurb on Miracle Morning says “What if you could miraculously wake up tomorrow and any – or every area of your life was transformed? What would be different? Would you be happier? Healthier? More successful? In better shape? Would you have more energy? Less Stress? More Money? Better relationships? Which of your problems would be solved? What if I told you that there is a “not-so-obvious” secret that is guaranteed to transform any – or literally every area of your life, faster than you ever thought possible? What if I told you it would only take 6 minutes a day?

Enter The Miracle Morning. What's now being practiced by thousands of people around the world could perhaps be the simplest approach to creating the life you've always wanted. It's been right there in front of us, but this audiobook has finally brought it to life. Are you ready? The next chapter of your life – the most extraordinary life you've ever imagined – is about to begin. You deserve an extraordinary life. It's time to wake up to your full potential.

This is one of the books (the others are the two books by Kat, you can read about them here and here) that I can credit with getting me out of a very dark place and giving me the tools I needed to restart my life.

Whether you want to get out of a rut, do something new with your life, achieve more in less time, or even if you're not sure what it is you want, this book is essential.

Since the original Miracle Morning, Elrod has produced a number of variations based on different needs:
