I’m not good at mornings. I generally take at least an hour to wake up fully. Part of the process in waking up is learning something new, anything. It could be a listening to a new song and learning the lyrics, reading an article about something interesting, or simply reading a book. This is how my brain wakes up. I provide input and it stretches itself into comprehending the day.
One of the biggest lessons I have learned over the last 3 years is to plan for the expected and unexpected. Raising Lisa I have learned that she wakes up slowly. She needs time to stretch and time to cuddle. She likes to eat first thing. Then she likes to play a little. I adjust our morning schedule to accommodate that.
Understanding that I need to ‘wake-up’ with intellectual stimulus I’ve decided to devote time in my morning to enjoy my learning process and share with the world the first 10 things that I opened while I drank my morning cup of coffee. My hope is that by setting aside this time first thing, I will be more productive the rest of the day.
May these 10 things stimulate your mind as well~
- “Listen, it’s still their f**king fault: Bush, Cheney, neo-con drivel, and the truth about Iraq and ISIS“
- “State Transportation Commission proposes Tacoma Narrows Bridge Toll rate increase, seeks public input“
