Daily Rituals and Optimal Living with Nathan Agin

Daily Rituals and Optimal Living with Nathan Agin

Topics: Uncategorized

Today I have a very special guest to introduce to you guys. Nathan Agin is a traveler, health-enthusiast, foodie, actor, and bona fide multipotentialite.

Nathan and I met through the blogosphere a few years ago, hung out at the World Domination Summit, and even trekked out to Joshua Tree together last year during my Epic West Coast Road Trip.

I’m always amazed at what Nathan creates, and at what a Renaissance Business he’s running over at Nonstop Awesomeness. It’s so cool to see how topics as diverse as food, meditation, travel, and productivity fit together cohesively under the overarching theme of “optimal living on the road.” Great overarching theme!

An Optimal Living Audit of ME

We decided to do a little twist on the usual interview format. In this conversation, Nathan has ME talk about my daily routine and we discuss ways in which I can optimize it. We also discuss adopting new rituals, getting into meditation, and his new health show which blends together food, travel, and film.

Check out Nonstop Awesomeness to follow Nathan and all of his adventures, or click here to get 20% off your own Optimal Living audit.

*Note: Unfortunately I couldn’t get this post up before Nathan’s Kickstarter campaign ended, BUT I’m pleased to report that Nathan exceeded his goal, and raised over $10,000! What a great group hug project this is. I can’t wait to watch it.

Your Turn

What does your day look like? Do you have any special rituals or routines?

    Similar to you Emilie, I have a great morning routine… Since I have a normal 8-5 job I wake up around 6 am and need to make my bus by 7:15 to get to work on time. And boy, I pack in a LOT into the hour between getting up and getting out the door ::

    Wake up, stretch (cat and cow poses to wake up my spine), gargle with salt water (helps me fight off any respiratory infections), brush my teeth, dry brush (really good for your skin & immune system), shower, neti pot (clears your sinuses), get dressed, make coffee & green smoothie, then I drink the smoothie while I put together my lunch, do my hair and pack my bag. Last but not least, I meditate for at least 1 minute before I leave. Even if I am literally sitting in front of the door – I take a moment to ground and center myself. And I’m done in an hour, ready to take on the day!

    It’s a lot to get done in a small amount of time but it’s easiest when I plan ahead the night before and stay focused. No email. No Facebook. Just my morning rituals, which are important because they help me stay healthy, nourished, and mindful.

    Thanks for sharing your consult with us! Very insightful :)

    Joyfully – Erin
