Publisher's Summary

You 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 nine 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

A definite read to make a real difference

Highly motivational. Alex definitely reads his book with purpose. Taking the day by mastering habits is a wonderful way of accomplishing goals whether it be food/weight related or just trying to fulfil yourself in other aspects of life. Does become repetitive at times, but only drives home the point more. Would recommend.

so helpful that I decided to listen to it again!

I found this book inspiring and eye opening. setting was clearly articulated and it all just makes sense.
I am not overweight, but I can apply the learnings from this book to my everyday life. I have a full time job and a family so I always held off on my dreams due to lack of time. this book helped motivate me to just do a little each day.

BEST book I’ve read/listened to in Many YEARS!

I’ve been an Audible customer a long time and have bought several books whose sample snippet was misleading. I’ve wanted to return those books—-but didn’t! THIS book delivered wonderfully, practical, useful information and so many stories I could relate to. I loved that the author read it, I could hear his passion, he was believable, and Alex has a great voice for reading. Some people really shouldn’t read aloud nor even be recording ANYTHING - and I’ve got some of those collecting dust in my Audible library - can you buy them back, Audible?? 🤣 Guess what? I’m about to read it AGAIN!! =) BTW - I’ve never taken the time to provide online feedback on anything..... I felt an urge & obligation this time - that’s how much this book meant to me. Thanks, Jan T.

perfect book!

I loved how much this book focus on process, rather than achieving goals (although you will definitely achieve them, if you follow the right steps)

this is not just about productivity, it’s also about happiness and living your life to the fullest. it’s realistic and human. loved it so much

Sounds like a detailed plan to master the day

Alex has a detailed plan that beats Tony Schwartz’s “Power of Full Engagement.” The no-goals method, maintainer strategy, 1% better daily rule, and try a little bit has already got me motivated. I need to check this out again!

A life changing book.

A book to read more than once. And definitely once every year. It made me realise that my focus was misplaced and that was why I could not get results

Amazing Book!

This is an amazing book. I finished listening to it and re-listened to it and heard things that I didn’t hear first time. I also recommended it to a few people. This is worth the purchase. He speaks in a way that really makes you think and act.

Loved this book so much. I’ve listened to over 50 self improvement books now and I have just finished this one and feel that it links all the others together and will be the most important one of all.

Thank you!!

Amazing book w/ real life examples and tips

Alex is the real deal. He wants to really help others and you can just feel it. His tips in this books work! I love that he decided to narrate this book, too. Check out his YT channel if you haven’t! It’s the same name as his website or just type in his name and it will come up.

Brilliant

I’ve read many self help books. This is the nutshell that contains pure gold. It’s not a diet book, it’s a manual for life. I’ve listened to it three times now. It’s beautifully read by Alex himself. A five star book in every way. Thank you Alex.

Gets better as you get further through it!

At first a wasn’t hooked on the book. I however gave it a try and by the end of it I kinda loved it. I’d say it was worth sticking with it. The rating is as it is due to the slow start.

Surprisingly astonishing!

Started following Alex recently on YouTube, and while I was shopping on audible, I thought, let's give a try.
Well written self development book with lot of interesting tips.
Successful life is not determined by single big actions, instead by daily small habits.
"Gutta cavat lapidem", a drop of water can did a rock not because of its power, but because of it's persistence. - Latin proverb.
Thank you Alex for this simple but invaluable lessons.

Clear and concise, perfect commuter listen

Having followed Alex for a number of years via his YouTube channel : modern health monk
I was looking forward to his first book and my first audiobook and it didn't disappoint.

As he is the author as well as the narrator for the audio his passion and believe in the master the day system really shines through.

The book teaches you several steadfast principles that have helped many of his personal clients and many others beyond that. Anyone can apply theses principles to their own life to attain their dream goal (health, financial etc) interspersed with inspiring quotes really is button player.

Get this book!

Amazing content and the fact you can achieve anything in life with consistent and steady improvement over time really resonated with I have been taught but could never actualise in daily life.

Thank you so much for writing this book and bridging the gap between philosophy, theory and practical application!

Makes achieving life more Simple

It made me realised that it is not the big actions that would change my life, but the tiny daily habits I do each day. After reading this book, I have become more patient with life and started being more aware of my daily habits and routines. This book is an eye-opener for me, and I'm sure it will be for many people who are seeking to do better in life. Highly recommend!

Inspiring

I watch Alex occasionally on YouTube and subscribed to his emails. He often mentions ideas that really resonate with me. I thought I would give his book a go and I am not disappointed. Alex reads well and explains things in a very easy to understand way. The ideas in this book aren't crazy they are crazy simple but it is hard for us to take action that's where alex breaks it down for us. Absolutely love it and have already recommended it.

itegrates all his youtube vids into one story

This is a great audiobook, I finished it in 2 days, yay! I loved it, only flaw is at times you could tell he was reading off a script because he stumbled for a second, but that only happened like 2 times. Other than that, very professional and contained priceless lifelong advice that I've added to my arsenal of tools. Bravo!

review most important book there is

i've always known what to do but never could stick to my massive changes long enough to see big results cause i was too perfectionist

i've been listening to your book on repeat for the past 3 weeks and for that long ive been able to stick to my habits effortlessly and with no stress.

i have motivation to try new things cause im only expecting 1 present better each time and that makes me more confidant to try more new things

for some reason when i have realistic goals i tend to do more than ever befor and its obvious that now im going to make my family proud of me by keeping this the way its going effortlessly, its certain that I reach all my goals

the naration is amazing
the ideas are clear
and you make it easy to reach any goal


happy 30th birthday

Very insightful.

I have learnt from this book on the significance of living life consciously.
It not a weight loss how to but rather a consider this.
I enjoyed the voice it was well paced not too fast or slow
