Life-Changing Insights

Each Blinkist explainer pack is filled with actionable advice that can be used to make real changes to your daily life.

The advice from an explainer pack like The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod could transform your morning routine. For instance, Elrod encourages us to follow his 5-step wake-up strategy to maximize our wake up routine.

The 5-steps are:

  1. Set Your Intentions Before Bed. Create genuine excitement for the next morning every night before bed.
  2. Move Your Alarm Clock Across The Room. This forces you to get out of bed and engage your body in movement. Motion creates energy, so when you get up and out of bed, it naturally helps you wake up.
  3. Brush Your Teeth. Go directly to the bathroom sink to brush your teeth and splash some warm (or cold) water on your face.
  4. Drink a Full Glass of Water. Hydrate yourself first thing every morning. Fill a glass of water the night before, so it’s already there for you in the morning.
  5. Get Dressed or Jump In the Shower. Either get dressed in your exercise clothes, so you’re ready to leave your bedroom and immediately engage in your Miracle Morning, or jump in the shower.

By following the life-changing tips from a Blinkist explainer pack, you could transform your daily routine in just 15 minutes or less.

A Book Explained In 15 Minutes

According to USA Today, 51% of Americans don’t pick up books because they just don’t have enough time to read.

This lack of time is why you can enjoy a Blinkist explainer in as little as 15 minutes. That means you can rekindle your habit in just a few minutes per day whenever you can squeeze them in. In fact, data shows that most Blinkist users learn from 3 books a day.

What’s more, the app simplifies big ideas and makes them easy to understand, so the content is straightforward and enjoyable.

Learning On The Go
