Lemon waterRight after I wake up, I pop a mug of filtered water in the microwave, then cut a lemon in half and add the juice. I used to skip lemon water in favor of coffee, but since committing to this habit, I feel so much more refreshed in the morning. I still enjoy my coffee once I get to the office, but I've completely stopped making it in my apartment during the week - a major morning time saver for me.
I like to read the latest news in the morning, both so that my brain is a little jump-started, and so that I am knowledgeable when I run into senior executives at the office coffee machine. The Skimm presents the headlines in an entertaining, informative, and easy to navigate format. Bonus: It arrives in my inbox at 6 a.m., so it's ready for me when I wake up. Sign up here!
Leaving earlyI loathe being late. Leaving for work just a couple minutes early ensures that I arrive feeling ready to tackle the day, instead of flustered. I set everything that I need to take to work by the door as I'm getting ready to avoid a last-minute scramble.
