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.

    Both courses look cool, I’m especially interested in the morning routine course. Which is kind of funny, because right now, my morning routine involves sleeping as late as possible and then rushing like crazy to get to work on time. :)
