I am Not A Morning Person.
This really put’s a downer on every work day – it’s not good for me and it’s certainly not good for The Girlfriend, who has to put up with my moroseness and general inability to speak or even make eye contact.
The solution? I can’t just snap out of it, I don’t think that ever really works, so I have decided to get rid of my mornings, or at least minimise them. Now that I am cycling to work I have found that once riding I am alive and ready to face the world, so I’m going to leave the house straight away in the mornings, and have breakfast at work. I should also pack my bag and make my lunch the night before. This will reduce my mornings from 45 minutes of sullenness to the 5 minutes it takes to get out of bed, but some clothes on, pick up my bag, and leave the house.
Don’t try and will your life to be better – change your patterns and routines to make better inevitable.
