What do you do while having the morning cup of coffee?

I have seen some people who read the daily newspaper while having their morning cofee. Some check their mails or browse through other sites. But I like to have my coffee in a relaxed way. I just like to relax and enjoy my coffee. If there was anyone near me, I would be chatting with them. How about you? What do you do when having your morning coffee?

I enjoy my coffee while I'm on myLot. It's almost as good as chatting with friends. I'm trying something new today and am not sure I like it but since I recently wrote an article about Ethiopian coffee I thought I would try it. It would probably help if my nose wasn't so plugged up from allergies but so far I'm not really impressed.

great..Though I know the history of coffee and the speciality of Ethiopian coffee, I have not tried it till date. After reading your response, I was tempted to read more about Ethiopian coffee. I was amazed to find that when buying Ethiopian coffees, there is a wide choice to choose from coffees with rich acidity and body, coffees with low acidity and good body or balanced, flavory coffees. I think it is this diversity of flavors which makes Ethiopian coffee an unique one. As far as I have read, Ethiopian coffee is most definitely one of the best coffees in the world. I hope you loved it too. How was the taste and most importantly the flavour of the coffee? Do share your experience with us.

I have to say that I'm disappointed. Maybe it's because I bought it at Walmart, but it tastes a lot like Maxwell House. The aroma is wonderful but the taste isn't so good. It's tolerable but nothing extraordinary. I'm going to have to try it from a better source. I'm sure the Walmart brand is not made from the best beans. I've been looking for good coffee for a couple of years, ever since the one I really liked became unavailable except by ordering online.

Oh.no..I thought you would be impressed by the Ethiopian coffee. Hope you would love its taste for the next time when you buy it from somewhere else other than Walmart. I too have a liking over a single brand of coffee and never buy any other brand. Luckily they are the market leaders in my place and I have not faced any problem with their availability.

wow..carrot juice in the mornings.. it is a sure way of replenishing your body system. That is an amazing idea. By drinking a glass of carrot juice you are doing justice to your digestive system. I'm sure you would be feeling fresh and cool by this. For how long have you been taking this carrot juice in the mornings? Do you drink it just for the name of a healthy drink or for reducing weight or something else.. Just wanted to know if drinking carrot juice has any more good effects.

[b]Ya.. for about 2 months I am taking the carrot juice in the morning... and in the evening... just a black tea... The reason behind the carrot juice is, For about 8 hours I am working in computer... so, my eyes are getting tired.... to regain the power to the eyes.. I am taking carrot juice... Even you can try it... it is good... and you will feel refreshing throughtout the day.......[/b]

that is fine..Carrots are always very good for improving your eye sight and refreshing the eyes. Carrots contain beta carotene, which is turned into vitamin A by the liver. This vitamin A is absorbed by retinal cells in the eyes. I found an informative article which tells that some other nutrients are even more important than vitamin A to help you see well. And foods high in chromium, vitamin C, lutein, zeaxanthin, zinc, selenium, glutathione, and Ginkgo Biloba will improve your vision. Some foods high in chromium include beef, liver, eggs, chicken, apples, bananas, and spinach. For vitamin C you can go for broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, and strawberries. I really love the way the carrot juice helps our body system. I wish I too had a glass of carrot juice in the mornings.

I very seldom drink coffee in the morning. I have a cup of tea or just hot water with my breakfast.

As soon as I start up my computer and start checking my emails my coffee is in front of me, I won't tackle anything until I've got my coffee to kick start the day. I always have it the same way, black with two sweeteners and then I wade through the emails as I drink it, hoping to find a few nice surprises, like referral notifications. I also have my breakfast as well, I think I am chained to the computer and a coffee addict too, there is simply no hope for me I guess.

Black coffee or tea are always good for your health..And more importantly the notifications that lets you know that you have got referrals are too good for your heart....They make you feel happy..

I enjoy sipping my morning coffee while reading the morning papers. Morning is the best part of my day where I am in my relaxed mood.

you are absolutely right. Morning is the best part of the day. I feel more fresh and relaxed too. The brain is fresh and the heart is light.. Starting a day in a relaxed way makes you feel better throughout the day.

I dont have time for a morning coffee at home, to be honest... all i do is wake up each day and go straight to the bathroom to take a bath and clean up and dress up... then next would be sitting in the dining table to have a breakfast. then i would have to leave by a certain time so i would get here in the office on time as well. wish, i had more time in the am to relax a bit before actually preparin for work.

what a tight schedule you have.. I'm sure I could never be that busy..Don't you feel tired by this routine way of work.. Just try to wake up an hour earlier. You will surely have few extra minutes at your hand. Just enjoy having a cup of coffee in the morning. You will love it. Relax and enjoy. I know you cannot afford few minutes like this in your tight schedule. But life is all to enjoy..relax..Have a great day (even without that cup of coffee )

that is great..Amazing to know that you check your facebook and youtube accounts in the morning itself. I never give that much priority to those sites.. Good that you enjoy the funny videos and humor is more important in the morning hours. These funny videos can make your heart feel light and enlighten your day too..Great way of starting the day..

I am actually one of them, I check my email and browse different sites while having my morning cup of coffee. I guess I am used to multi-tasking since I have been working for three years in a company where multi-tasking is a necessity.

that is fine..I know, multitasking is not that easy. If you are not well trained in that, all the works may get stuffed. I think you are a real expert. Multitasking sure saves more time. Great that you keep yourself busy in your coffee time too.
