My morning routine (or habit, depending on how you look at it) consist of one or two hits of the snooze button, a controlled pilates move to get me into the upright position without jiggering a muscle or two and a few yoga stretches before I hit the shower room. Once suitably attired the next task is to feed the pup to get her out from underneath my feet. While she’s snarfing/vacuuming her kibble, the very important task of the day needs attending to – setting up the coffee machine.
To me there’s nothing better than the smell of percolating coffee, not to mention the jump-start I get from my morning cuppa. The only blot on the horizon is palpitations. In my younger years I consumed enough coffee every day to jump-start a jumbo jet without feeling any the worse for it. Nowadays even the second cuppa will trigger the feeling that I’ve just outrun Usain Bolt!
I don’t want to change my morning routine/habit… a bad day with coffee is still better than a good day without it. So how do I get round this? I need the caffeine hit, just smaller. After much experimentation I think I’ve found the answer… a 2:1 blend of rich roasted coffee and decaf coffee, enough of a kick-start to the day without the unwanted jittery stuff.
What morning routine get’s you set up for the day?
Wishing you all a fabulous Friday Eve
