Master the Day by Alexander Heyne

masterthedaybookcoverYou probably already know all the obvious health and weight loss tips… so why don’t you have your dream body?
What one early reviewer has already said has, “transformed my life more than any other book I’ve read on the subject,” MASTER THE DAY is a different way to think about getting the health, body, and life you want – by changing tiny habits, no matter what diet you’re on.
In MASTER THE DAY, you’ll learn:
– The 9 daily success habits of people that lost over 100+ pounds in a healthy way, and kept it off years later
– The four horsemen of the health apocalypse – what simple, overlooked habits cause repetitive failure no matter how many diets we try
– Unlimited motivation – the willpower and discipline myth: How to be healthier with LESS discipline, and without all the “fitspiration” rah rah motivational junk.
-How NOT having weight loss goals can actually make you MORE successful – without the constant guilt, self hatred and frustration
Every month, over 170,000 readers visit Alexander Heyne’s website, Modernhealthmonk.com, to discover a different, more practical way to look and feel amazing (especially as a parent or busy professional), by using the power of tiny habits.


A very different read for me this time around. And before you closing the window, this is not a book on how to lose weight, its more of a motivational book, and how to stay motivated to achieve what you want from life.

I will admit that I was sceptical when I started reading this. I had watched a few of the videos by the author on his YouTube channel Modern Health Monk, and quite liked what he had to say, so I decided why the hell not, and started reading the book. It certainly did inspire me, and I will admit I took a lot of what was written in the book on board and have started incorporating them into my daily life. One of those things is the daily habit tracker. While its not an original  idea, it certainly is a brilliant one, and Alexander has a brilliant way of helping you make it part of your daily ritual.

I did find some parts of the book repetitive, but apart from that a lot of what the book is, is basic common sense that people should incorporate into their daily lives, but aren’t. I personally benefited from this book, and can’t wait to see if it continues to work, and doesn’t become just another flop motivational attempt, which Heyne’s promises that this book won’t be.

If you’re looking for some uplifting, something to motivate you, and some sort of purpose, I’d recommend this book. If you’re looking to lose weight, and/or lose weight fast, I wouldn’t recommend it, because while using the techniques given in this book might contribute to helping you lose weight, this book won’t help you. Only you can.
