What would be the first three or four things that you usually do in sequence every morning when you awaken? . I never set an alarm because I always awaken between 5 and 6 a.m. The first thing I do when I open my eyes is to : (1) get up and head for the bathroom. (2) get back into bed and do 15 minutes of stretching exercises . (3) say my morning prayers.(4) Have some fruit - either an orange, banana or whatever is available. What is your routine like.?

Number one is head to the BR, then start the coffee, get the newspaper, get Anne's morning snack of nuts and a ginger cookie together, take that and her coffee in to the bedroom (with the crossword puzzle) and wake her, then get my own coffee, breakfast and look at email and myLot.

I like that routine . When I lived in the city I could expect the morning papers delivered to my home.

It is nice to be able to wake up and do the usual things. I usually have my breakfast an hour after having my fruit.

First of all picture you have selected give a nice indication about the discussion. I usually set my alarm to get up, otherwise I may miss to get up at the particular time. I go to washroom and attend to daily rituals, shaves myself and then take bath. Only after bathing I take something to drink or eat.

@Kandae11 Yes, if it is not a working day, I get up late but once I get up other drills remain the same. I must appreciate your choice of picture.

When I lived in the city my routine was almost the same as yours. After the bathroom and prayers, I would get the newspaper from the driveway, prepare my breakfast , sit in my dining room and read and eat with birds chirping outside the open windows.

What time do you have breakfast? I seem to be asking that of everyone who didn't mention it, probably because I have mine quite early. My last meal of the day is usually between 5 and 6 in the evening - therefore I am really hungry in the morning.

@Kandae11 oh, when i get up early at 4:30, i prepare breakfast. this morning, i prepared breakfast because my son has classes. breakfast for us, in normal days (no duty) is usually at 7:30 AM; lunch at 1 PM, and dinner at 8PM. if we eat early in the evening, it is very possible that we are hungry at midnight, and we don't have midnight snacks as well

During the hot summers I am usually eager to get in the shower in the morning - so I do that after my exercises and my fruit snack. Then I get dressed and prepare my breakfast - which is usually oatmeal or cornflakes.

After a wake-up to go to the gym, I change clothes, feed the cat and check his litter. I also run the dishwasher on Monday mornings. For regular days, I reboot the computer and check email, feed cat and check litter, and then I change clothes later on.

@Kandae11 I normally have it on the go like a granola bar, when I leave for the gym around 7:20 AM. On non-gym days, 8:30 AM with a cup of hot or iced tea.
