How do you normally start your day?

Are you the type to jump out of bed and hit the ground running?

Are you more likely to open one eye while slowly making your way to the coffee pot?

What are your morning rituals?

After a visit to the WC, coffee (it is already made and in a Thermos waiting), fire up the computer, read emails then come here.

I surely am not a hit the ground running type of person at this point in life. I did it for years and I can do it for a few days when I have to do so but life for me is better with a slower start.

I am best avoided BC (before coffee).

I work the 3rd shift so my morning is actually night time. lol

I'm going to bed pretty soon when I am caught up.

First thing I do is turn the K-cup machine on and get some coffee in me so I can not be like grumpy cat. Usually I have to hold myself back from tossing the alarm clock across the room when it goes off.

I run my own company so am fairly flexible. Usually around 8am (could be as late as 9am though if I am working late the night before), I get up and grab a coffee.

Then I take my dog for a 40 minute walk around the park. That wakes me up, and gets my brain fresh ready for working.

Now during winter, if there is snow, i jump right into my warmt suit and go out shuffeling snow, i do this as a little morning gym before shower. Then after shower i read online newspapers, check mail, facebook, stats etc, then i get to work.

I tend to wake up S L O W L Y!

It is definitely best to wait until I have finished my coffee before you expect me to communicate.

Wake up usually with the daylight around 7am. Boot up PCs. Go to the kitchen and make my Keurig Donut Shop Morning Blend fresh cup. Back up to the office to watch the PC's still in various states of boot up processes. (I'd love a SSD for Xmas). Half a cup later, I can begin opening my morning apps for work.

Ooops! Coffee cup is empty - time to go down for another one. Maybe a Rainforest Espresso this time. Begin moderating a bunch of overnight "fluff" thats came in overnight from the far east. And then get around to the coding and testomg somewehere around 10am.

I usually dont' take any calls before 9am, and definitely no meetings before 10:30 (unless by Skype). I'm pretty Ok by then.

I'm that type. I'm barely awake when I make my way to the coffee pot. I stumble into walls until I have my first cup of coffee. lol

Set my alarm at:

7:41
7:42
7:43
7:44
7:45
7:46

And so on... all the way to 8AM when i dive out of bed before falling back asleep with no alarms...

The best technique to wake yourself up is by cracking 6 egg whites into a glass and downing them... That certainly gets the taste buds working anyway... Followed by a 3 teaspoon cup of coffee, and some porrige.... Accompanied with my electric vapourising apple flavoured cigarette, and the morning news....

Then I do the HAKA.... and set off to work.... haha

I've always fantasized about being a morning person.

I stay in bed until I'm through a cup of coffee or two (wake up about 7:30 am).

Then I handle emails and laptop work before I emerge......

Then I hit the ground running.

Hahaha, AMEN!

I have something similar on a night time, I called it 'quiet time' between 930 and 11pm, need to let my mind wind down before I sleep, so I refuse to talk much between these hours!

Not sure what I would do without coffee

Here's my morning ritual: wake up, brush teeth, drink a cup of coffee and 2 slices of bread with butter, read newspaper, on my laptop to work online.

I generally lie in bed, spending some time with my cat. When she figures it's time to get up and get moving, she generally bites my finger.

I woke up and I am on my feet... I run to take a bath and then dressup, have my breakfast and leave for the office... this is usually while weekdays.

But on weekends it is the opposite, I start my day by having lunch on the weekends.
