I lost track of where I was reading a shared discussion of morning routines and whether or not to partake of social media in the early morning. I looked in Claudia’s blog, and Grimmly’s blog without results. maybe the topic was about something else and it was in the comments where the morning routine topic took over. Anyway, it did stick with me that Grimm makes time to make lunch for his beloved. For those of us with a morning practice, what we choose to do with that limited time before the rest of the world starts barreling in is very telling. I know people who use their phone as an alarm clock and click to their email/twitter feed or facebook page while still lying down. My rejoining those already up and about goes like this:
6:30 AM (sometimes before if my Jawbone Up senses I’m in light sleep) wake up & shower.
6:45-7:20 AM make coffee drink it, read inspirational quote for the day, in order to feel authorized to indulge in the news headlines, email, and fb updates.
7:30 AM Drive to the shala.
8:00 to 9:15-9:30 Mysore practice.
9:45-!0:00 AM Second cup of coffee, re-indulge in news headlines, social media, blogs.
I guess the only difference is I do not check social media while lying down. 😀
