Morning routines

It's been quiet around here lately, so I thought I'd share my morning routine:

Ailsa's Morning Routine

The morning routine is broken down into four parts:

  1. Rise and Shine
    • Say "Modeh ani."
    • Fling back covers, head to bathroom, wash hands, say "Netilas Yedayim" and "Asher Yotzar".
    • Strip, hang up nightgown, do yoga exercises.
    • Return to the bathroom.
    • Brush your teeth, shower, draw David's bath.
    • Pop David into the bath.
    • Swish the toilet and sink and leave the room never to return till later. It is clean and you can forget about it for now.
    • Dress, make bed, daven shacharis.
    • Get David out of bath and dress him.
    • Leave your bedroom with a load of laundry in hand and go straight to the washer.
    • Feed & water cats.

  2. Kitchen
    • Make coffee and start breakfast.
    • If you did your Before Bed Routine, the kitchen is clean and all you need to do is empty the dishwasher.
    • Feed the David and put his lunch in his backpack.

  3. Think About Your Day
    • Check your calendar.
    • Make your list of what you are going to do today (PODA or To Do List)
    • Reboot the laundry (put in dryer).
    • Hit the hotspots. If you did your Before Bed Routine there will not be any.

  4. Now Think About Yourself
    • Take your vitamins.
    • Sit down.
    • Eat breakfast (if you haven't already).
    • Now reward yourself with some computer time. Check your e-mail and write morning LJ post.
    • Head upstairs to meditate.

I'm kind of pleased with it, especially since it works over half an hour of exercise into every day.
