Very interesting. My morning routine starts with being walked over by at least one cat and usually two, and then being made to feed three cats. I can only do the 12 hour fast thing if I don't decide I'm doing it. As soon as I say I'm doing it then I'm starving five minutes later.

Anyway, I love the idea of taking an ordinary and potentially boring subject (what one has for breakfast) and turning it into something much larger.

Don’t forgot that, in addition to pressing the heart, the reader could also go into the comments and leave a nice little message thanking the writer for sharing his work and being a part of the morning routine.

So...thank you!

I can’t believe you just talked me into eating cottage cheese for breakfast.

Thanks, Lyle. I am an elderly woman whose routine is now governed by the needs and habits of my dog and cat. My early morning self care involves cleaning up whatever they got up to overnight, including removing dead wild life from the premises. I would much prefer your routine. Mary

Ok but what are the exact nut clusters you use so I can try to REPLICATE your precise morning routine??? 😂😂

I appreciate that you were able to get into the problematic aspects of optimized routines while keeping it short and notalung it a screen essay, but rather expanding into other forms of self-reflection.
