morning routine

we all have our morning routine. for those who work the night shift, their morning routine is going to bed and sleeping all day. for some, it's a cup of coffee or espresso from their own shiny machine. for others, it's their destiny with starbuck's each and every morning. still others enjoy fruit in the morning, while some do yoga. we all have our special morning routine. for me, it's a bike ride. this morning i noticed another routine. the dog people.

they have their morning routine too. each morning they assemble at the dog park. both canine and people socialize and frolic. it can be difficult determining who's having more fun.

as i ride by on my bike, several canines come to greet me. this must be their morning routine. bark at bike riders. it's comforting to have a morning routine. it is something to look forward to and depend on. with life being constant change, morning routines are a blessing or a curse depending on your perspective.

after my bike ride i indulge in another morning routine. my outdoor shower. enjoy your morning routine(s).

I have given this advice to many psychiatric patients who are anxious mostly in the morning as a way to bull through this difficult period of the day for them.
