What 10 New Things Could You Wake Up & Immediately Do?
1. Enjoy the sunrise
That's the view from the foot of our bed. When I open my eyes I look at the clock and then the sunrise on the horizon. I take this same picture very frequently.
2. Quick inventory of what I need/want to do today
This early, this just washing my hands and brushing my teeth.
4. I do check my phone first thing
It's a good way to make sure I did not miss something urgent related to the fire department, something that could seriously impact capital markets or something from a guest at our Airbnb.
5. Greet our dogs
We have 5 of them so we have a routine.
6. Drink water
I am much more of a drink when thirsty person instead of targeting some quantity but I think it is important to start the day with a full glass.
I don't usually exercise first thing but seeing that on a lot of the other lists. I workout around 10:30 or 11 usually. Today is not a lifting day but I took exercise items from other lists in this challenge as a prompt to do a full set of diamond pushups. On non-lifting days I will try to add early morning pushups or air squats.
8. Morning reading
I do this seven days a week. My day job is essentially one of my hobbies. I will always want to read about and learn more about capital markets long past the point where I am making a living at it.
If you look, you'll find conflicting opinions about having routines for this sort of thing. I'm a believer in having a routine but probably no single right answer for everyone.
