What are the things you need to do within 30 minutes of waking up to ensure your day gets off on the right foot? What happened the last time you didn’t do one of these things?
This is especially important nowadays since I am working a 4:30 am t0 1:30 am shift. I reach home at around 2:20 am almost every work day and go to sleep after changing my clothes and getting some water to drink. I usually wake up at around 9 and for a while it seems like I’m a zombie trance. I must look out for Rick, Darryl, Michone and Co. who hate walkers.
Anyways, once I wake up, it’s a slow process of wanting to but unable to push away the comforting sheets and put something to wear and stumble into the bathroom for attending the call of nature. Then it’s a face wash with water and brushing my teeth. I get back to my room and switch on the laptop and then get to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee. Until it is inside of me, do not attempt to have a conversation with me. DO NOT! People have been mauled and mutilated for just asking me the time or how I am!
Once the coffee is in my system I am a different animal altogether and among the land of the living and cordial people. About 20 minutes after I go to the toilet, it will be time to get some breakfast (this will be around 9:40 am or so). Then it’s a couple of hours of internet, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube before I watch an episode or 2 of some tv show before shower and shave. Then it’s lunch time and the wait for the company cab to take me to the office.
As long as I get past that coffee and atleast 2-3 hours of leisure I’m alright for the day.
