Make the bed. Grab my first cup of coffee and check the overnight messages, to put out any immediate fires. Grab a second cup of coffee and a light breakfast while sitting outside playing some brain games. Depending on the day of the week, I do yoga, pickle ball or disc golf. Lastly, shower before beginning on my 3 main to-dos for the day.
