Mornings are my favorite time of day. During the week especially, it’s ‘my’ time of day. I wake up fairly early, around 7 (I don’t have to be at work until 10). I automatically wake up, so I never need an alarm, sometimes I’ll wake up earlier, and rest in bed until 7, by browsing through Instagram, and checking some emails. The first thing I do is start the coffee, then clean Alfred’s cage. The pups like to sleep in, so once they’re fully up, usually after my first cup of coffee, I’ll take them for a walk around the neighborhood and feed them. That’s all usually done before 8, so I have an hour or so to just sit down, read, perhaps work on a crossword or ken ken puzzle, sip my coffee, and enjoy the quiet morning.
Having that time makes the work days much more manageable. I feel relaxed by not having to rush out the door, and that alone puts me in a much better mood. I’ve always been a person who needs a schedule. I get a lot more done that way.
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
