I would open my eyes to start the day. If I'm too tired, I would try to feel for my mobile phone (alarm clock) when my eyes are still closed.

The very first thing I do in the morning is reach underneath my pillow for my glasses. I take my contacts out at night, so I keep my glasses handy. I put them underneath my pillow so my two dogs won't chew them up. And surprisingly they don't get smashed.

I guess you need to watch out for your glasses with your dogs... Thanks for the comment

For me its open my eyes!!! Then turn the alarm off. Yes, the alarm goes off on my mobile phone whihc i use to wake me up, but one is fast asleep , and does not realise where the phone maybe lying, though sub-consioulsy we do know about oit, so i have to open my eyes and then close the alarm, and there after i see the time and incase i feel sleepy again and want to get back into bed for another 5 min!!, i set the time again and sleep off another 5 min, thats rare, but yes, it does happen as i have to get up around 5.30 early morning, so its rather early, and then i would get up gradually and do all the other things. Guess each one of us does various things but putting the alarm clock would be the main thing to start your early mornings from. Have a nice day. :)

The first thing I try to remember to do in the morning, before I move at all, is reach out for my thermometer and take my BBT (basal body temperature). Why? I am charting my temperature and other body indicators for fertility issues ... finding out when I ovulate and hopefully have those clues that I'm pregnant (if I ever get pregnant that is) LOL. Then, I go to the restroom. Then go back to the bedroom and get ready to take a shower - shower - dress - then hop on the computer. *grins*

I also turn off the alarmclock, or in some cases I pick up the phone. My husband is working in Arizona, and I'm back home in Ontario, so he often calls me in the morning to wake me up...even though he's 3 hours behind me. He likes to get up REALLY REALLY REALLY EARLY in the mornings.
