Sponsor Giveaways | Big Picture Classes, Be More With Less

GIVEAWAY | Five (5) people will receive Courtney Carver's of Be More With Less' newest microcourse Creating A Meaningful Morning Routine.

From Courtney: I wasn’t always an early riser, and there are still days I choose to sleep in until seven or eight, but it’s rare. Usually I wake up and start my day before the sun comes up. When I am consistently practicing a morning routine, waking up early is even easier. I look forward to waking slowly with intention and purpose.

My morning routine changes from season to season, but typically it includes a combination of meditation and yoga, and sometimes walking and writing. Dedicating a block of time to actions that heal my body, calm my mind and inspire creativity first thing in the morning informs my day in a really positive way. I think everyone deserves a morning routine, (early riser or not) so I made this Microcourse for you.

This workshop includes 9 PDF's in one downloadable folder:


  1. Welcome and Getting Started

  2. Day One: Why & How

  3. Day Two: Actually Beginning

  4. Day Three: Choosing Activities

  5. Day Four: Always Before Email

  6. Day Five: Habit Stacking

  7. Day Six: Road Blocks

  8. Day Seven: And Beyond

  9. F.A.Q.


Imperfect action beats perfect inaction every time. – Harry Truman


The most important part of each Microcourse is closing the gap between awareness and action. The course material will increase your awareness of the importance of a morning routine and how to develop one that is meaningful in your life. Delivering that information is my responsibility. The action part is your responsibility. This will only work if you implement the recommendations. Each day will have the information you need for awareness plus a special daily action step section.

    Since one of my goals for february was precisely to work on my morning routine (I've started doing 15mn yoga sessions before breakfast on weekdays, and it's made a fantastic difference on my energy level throughout the day!), I would love to win Courtney's microcourse.
    Thanks for the giveaway; have a nice week-end.

      Awesome giveaways. I really could use the morning one as not a morning person.

    I would love to win a spot in the Morning Routine micro course - this post has spoken to my heart right now as I am struggling to make my mornings more meaningful and less chaotic! I think the morning sets the tone for the whole rest of the day and at the moment it is full of stress and rush and chaos to get us all out the door to work and school. Life has been whispering to me to fix this over the past few weeks and then I read your post and thought, yes that's exactly what I need. Thanks Ali.

    I was just looking over my February priorities for OLW - and "strengthen morning routine" is right there for me to see and to contemplate what my hold up is! Then I clicked over to your site and to see this giveaway made my heart jump a little! Thank you so much for the chance to win! I'd love to have a better morning routine! Not to mention "strengthen relationships" is also on my list - so Stephanie's class is super exciting too! :)
