What is your morning routine?
My morning routine is pretty simple: wake up (usually by an alarm), prepare self for outside world by brushing/cleaning various things, and get my coffee. My first drink is almost always an espresso, shortly followed by lots of water. Then I get ready for the world, and work.
How long have you stuck with this routine so far?
I’ve had this specific routine for at least the past five years, since I’ve been working from home.
What time do you go to sleep?
Usually close to midnight. I found out during all-nighters in engineering school in college that my brain does not like intensive work past midnight.
Do you do anything before going to bed to make your morning easier?
If something is swirling in my head, I won’t get to bed easily, so I note it in my to-do list or notes and that usually does the trick. I’m a big fan of writing things down in order to get them out of my head, thus my many lists which are almost brainstorming.
Usually when I shut down work for the evening I list a few things I’ll tackle in the morning. That way I can stop thinking about them for the evening and in the morning I have a ready-made to-do list!
