breakfast person all the way, and so my morning routine looks like this: I brew myself an Americano or latte, and whip up a hearty breakfast (usually something with eggs or Greek yogurt). Then I sit at the kitchen table with my cats
and check my e-mail and social media accounts. If I can help it, I don't schedule any calls or meetings for the first couple of hours of working so I can answer lingering e-mails and tackle
anything timely or urgent. Sipping a soothing warm beverage, petting my fur babies, and peacefully easing myself into the day sets me up for a great morning.
