What are the very first things you do when you wake up? Do you have a stretch session? Do you meditate? Do you jump up straight to the bathroom to pee (like I do) and then just brush your teeth get ready and out the door?
I’m curious what other bee’s mornings look like. Me, I get up, brush my teeth, drink a bunch of water, take my vitamins/prenatal crap, then start work (I work from home).

I get up as fast as I can to try not to wake up DH (I get up 2 hours before he needs to be). Bathroom, tooth brushing, shower, dressed, and out the door in 45 minutes. I have breakfast at work.

I walk directly to the keurig and set it up to brew a cup and THEN I go pee. I am not a fun person to be around until I’ve had that first cup. If DH has extra time in the morning he starts it for me and brings me coffee in bed 😍

spearmint : lol, my DH calls me Dory….as in Dory from Finding Nemo, because in the mornings I have a stupid amount of energy and can just pop out of bed and start yapping away. he will sometimes just grab my head and snuggle it into his chest so i cant talk hahahahaha.

I do everything in the morning, I always avoid getting ready for the day lol I usually get up and go to the washroom, wash my hands and put in my contact lenses, then I go around the house and putter around, empty the dishwasher, maybe fold laundry, then I straighten my hair, throw on some mascra & powder, get dressed, brush my teeth and leave lol

Usually contacts first so I can see, take my vitamins to get energy, pee, then shower If i didnt the night before, or wash face and get dressed for the gym ir depending on the day.
If im going to the gym in the morning before work, I grab my bags and food, feed the cats, feed the fish, and im out the door. If its work first well its all that plus a shower.

I don’t work so I don’t need to rush in the mornings. And I’m spoiled..! 🙂 My husband always wakes up 1.5 hours before me to be ready when the stock market opens. He then brings my coffee to bed when it’s time for me to wake up (he always asks me before we go to sleep what time I want to wake up). I usually drink my coffe in bed while scrolling through my phone. Usually I spend 20 minutes in bed with my coffee. After that I walk downstairs to our dogs to let them out in the garden and start preparing their food. I am normally awake for about two hours before I eat breakfast. During those two hours I do some chores around the house.

I jump up to go pee and then lay in bed for about 2 hours since my FI is long gone by the time I wake up and I don’t work until 1pm.

spearmint : We must be twins!!!Same here…I go straight to the Keurig and brew a cup, hit the bathroom, come back get out my coffee cream and wait for it to get done. Woe to anyone who tries to converse with me before I have my coffee down.
Afterward my coffee is done I head out on to the back porch and enjoy the quiet for a few minutes before the children come storming down the stairs to start getting ready for school. After they are gone, I flip through my phone and read Dear Abby, Dear Prudence, and Ask Amy. I then check on any chores I can get done while using crutches or my cane and then I get dressed, and make myself some breakfast.

I scroll on my phone for 15 mins. Then it’s up to pee and brush my teeth. I begin my day then. It’s not to wake up and not jump out of bed even if it’s only 15 mins.

I make a cup of tea immediately, before I do anything else.

In the past few months I’ve switched to morning workouts so I now have a set in stone routine, like down to which lights get turned on as a walk by and so not to hurt my eyes lol.
First alarm goes off at 5:30, we snuggle until the second alarm 10 minutes later. SO gets up and goes to take a shower in our en suite. I get up, use the other bathroom, come out, take his prepacked breakfast and lunch and my water bottle out of the fridge. I then go back to the bedroom, get dressed for the gym in the clothes I have already laid out. Braid my hair for workout, grab my gym bag (which has my work clothes for the day), turn off the AC, grab my lunch and I’m out the door. If I didn’t do all the ridiculous prep, I mean, I pre-pour my water, it wouldn’t work for me. I’m not really a morning person so having everything in place stops me from bailing on homemade lunch’s or workouts or, let’s be real, both in favour of extra sleep.
ETA: all of the getting ready part, shower, teeth, hair etc happens post-workout. I’m not a slob, I do those things too I swear!
