What is your morning routine? Do you have the same rigid one every day, or are you sort of free-spirited? Has it ever changed a lot - like for me, changing to remote with the pandemic was huge.

Alarm set for 5:15. But we don't usually get out of bed until 5:30. Get a bottle of milk for the kid. I shower and get ready for work while husband feeds the kid and gets him changed/dressed for the day. Around 6, I'm ready and take the kid downstairs for breakfast while husband showers and gets ready for the day. We all eat breakfast and are out the door between 6:30 and 6:45.

Ugh, this is an area I really need to improve.

5:15am wake up, brush teeth, wake my wife up
5:15am - 6:15am: Sit on couch and scroll on my phone until my wife is done getting ready
6:30am: Hopefully make it to the gym

Remote work has been nice in that I'm not rushing to get into an office by a set time. I'm usually home from the gym by 7:30am and showered/ready to work by 8:30am or so.

Cold brew here, but agree.

Do you make your own cold brew? I've been using a Pampered Chef one that works fine (since I'm the only coffee drinker in my house), but I'm still working at finding the perfect blend.

Alarm at 4:30
Maybe snooze until 4:39 or 4:48 (rarely)
Brush Teeth
Shower
Ponder meaning of life
Maybe some light youtube or phone browsing
Out the door by 5:30

Weekends I'm typically awake by 6:00. Sometimes I out getting bagels by 7 AM, sometimes I don't roll out of bed until 8:00 AM.

No, I have zero skills! I just get the Stok green stuff and mix in a little hazelnut creamer! I bet yours is better!

With an order of things like that, I thought you were going elsewhere with it...

We do this one. I mix it all up one morning, its ready the next morning and lasts us about 6 days. We use unsweet cashew or coconut/almond milk as a base, and then top off with the concentrated cold brew. Mix in sweetener if you want.

I was never a coffee drinker at all, still hate hot coffee. But gf has me converted on this, its decent.
