we all have ways and means and things we did before we go to sleep. taking a bath to make our sleep comfortable. having some milk, or just going directly to sleep. but i wonder of what are those things that you usually do when you wake up?.. the first thing you do, i mean.. as for me, i would then look my sorroundings. my room mates, and my position.. the light, or the sorroundings if it is already morning, early or late.. then i would fold my pillow and arrange. and go to my Bible (somehow) and have my quiet time.. i usually don't have any conversation in the morning, so i gargle later, or perhaps i don't. hehe.. what about you?...

Well, I pee. I get up after a sound night in bed and rush to the bathroom before it is an emergency. Then I pack a lunch for the Hubby and school age kids. Then I am supposed to exercise but a lot of the time I just get a head start of the days work or spend some extra time on me.

Of course, the first thing, i do when i get up early in the morning is switch off my alarm that i had put up in my mobile or either snooze it and then go back to sleep..Ha ha ha.. Well, i am just into a habit of taking an extended nap when the alarm rings up for the first time. Then i often get up after 10-15 minutes and move straight into the bathroom to wash my fact to get rid of the sleep. Oh ya, i forgot to tell you, that i am talking about 6am in the morning. Actually recently i am trying to be regular to go to a gym early in the morning. But anyway, even it happens many a times that i put an alarm of 6 am and then reset it to 8 am to get up for my office that time. then also, i tend to have an extended nap.. So i get up, wash my face, wake up my friend who accompanies me to the gym and then go for brushing up my teeth, followed by toilet... and then i would get up ready in the outfit respective to where i am heading for..gym or office..

Oh!! I haven't been successful either in being regular to the gym every morning. I t would hardly be thrice a week or sometimes twice in a week, that i would get up early in the morning for going to a gym. Ha ha..

I immediately go to the bathroom and take a leak. I open my computer and check my mails while my electric pot is boiling water for coffee. While having my caffeine intake to avoid headache later, I write down what I need to do and immerse myself to work for the day.

When I wake up, I will directly go to my bathroom and take a bath. I need to refresh my body to face my daily activity. But if I wake up too early, I will turn on my computer and online for an hour doing myLot. Like today, I wake up earlier than usual so I spend my time in here. keep post happy myLotting...

I usually look at the time, and would ask for five more minutes of sleep and sleep. Then afterwards, I would drink water and look for food. Oh, I also think of what will my day be.

Every morning, when I wake up I check the watch or the cellphone to check if its alreayd 4am. More often I would wake up at 2:30 am, so I have to sleep if its too early. When the cellphone alarms it means that its already 4am, then I get my Bible and quiet time notebook, go out, and sit on the cahir out side( i have to do the quiet time outside since its too early and I m afraid that ate an my room mate will be disturbed from her sleep). First i look at the heavens and watch the stars twinkling lively greeting me goodmornig and saying hi to me. Then after reading my Bible i go back to sleep and wake up when it 30 minutes before offce time, take a bath and go to the office.

I always do my thing in the washroom when I wake up. Most of the time I also power on my laptop and start mylotting or checking my emails. I really am addicted to the internet. I feel like while I'm asleep there are so many things going on that I miss out on and I'm excited to learn about it in the morning. :) I don't fix my bed when I wake I'm so lazy! And I don't look at the Bible at all..

the first thing i do every time i wake up in the mornig is to sleep again.lol..just joking.but oftentimes,when the mornigns are col or rainy i really go back to sleep. if i have work and it is still early,i spen a little "kulitan" (playing around) time with my love one in bed.we cuddle and cuddle and cuddle.but when both of us are in a hurry,we go straight to the shower and take a bath.after dressing up we go and eat at a nearby canteen,then off to work. things really do get busy and hectic when your employed.

I usually go to the bathroom, drink some milk and eat breakfast first thing in the morning. I also don't turn on any lights until the last possible seconds because my eyes are very sensitive to light.

press the SNOOZE button, 3 to 7 times :D then wake up, realize I'm all late, and head for work. But I like your idea with the reading an quiet time a bit more :) Things that are on my list to start doing in the morning: - Yoga - Quiet Time - Visualization - Dream recall, writing about previous' night dreams - Review my plan for the day, before I head off - Morning Warmup / sports - Last but not least, Wake and Bake :D

hi I usually wake up early in the morning and go to sleep after my work is completed. When I wake up early in the morning,I straight away go to my bathroom with brush and paste inorder to clean my teeth,then I will do the remaining things.Without cleaning my teeth I dont do any other work.Next thing I will do is washing my face.So I feel very fresh by doing this two things.If I dont clean and wash my face I will feel sleepy.......

Usually the first thing I do is stretch and then I get up and go to the restroom. Then I brush my teeth and wash my face. It's pretty routine usually never changes. lol.
