I’ve never been one of those people who could sleep in until the last possible second and then dash out the door with five minutes to spare. I’ve also never been one to use an alarm clock, so my internal clock must be spot on.
I typically allow myself an hour or so in the morning before I have to head out. Lately, The Gamer has been awakening me an hour before I usually get up, and while it was annoying at first, trying to fall back asleep for that hour (which was never successful), I just decided to get up then and well, I’ve turned my morning around and it’s been quite productive.
Besides leaving time for general morning Interneting, I’ve been able to do dinner prep and general tidying. This morning I even managed to write a letter to a friend. I should keep this up, although it does make the work day seem a bit longer.
And I do love an extra five minutes to lay back down on the bed that’s been remade and listen to some music. I mean, who wouldn’t?
What’s your morning routine? Can you go without caffeine in the morning?
