While I am no health or wellness expert, I have done a fair amount of research and experimenting over the years on nailing down a morning routine that works for me. When I volunteered to write this article, the country was pre-pandemic. When COVID-19 hit in full force here in the United States in March, I seriously considered taking another view of how this article should be written. And while our world has undoubtedly changed in so many ways since March, this morning routine has been a source of comfort to me during these times. As such, I share it with you, in the hopes that perhaps you may find a similar satisfaction. I recognize that this may not be possible for everyone in all stages of their lives, nevertheless, it has worked for me for the last several years. So, in addition to the standard advice of eat well, get enough sleep, and exercise, I commend to you coffee, meditation and perspective.
