State of Tiredness
After I have been in Denmark for a week and now back, jetlag has put me in a state of tiredness.
Today, for instance, I can already tell that when the sun goes down, I will be useless.
True, I have been in bed by 8:15 the past two nights and asleep in about 5-10 minutes…
In Denmark that same time is the 4:00 am golden hours. The last two hours of sleep before I had to get up.
Each day I felt like I could sleep until real late.
But, I love my morning routine when I am there, so it gets me up and going.
It makes my day pretty good.
Routine To Fight the Jet Lag
What gets me up in the morning while in Denmark is the amazing breakfast at the hotel and the nice walk to work, though a couple of parks.
One of the parks is a favorite of the local dogs, so there is always dog watching on my way to and from work.
A dog can easily put a smile on your face, even if it is cold and rainy.
Back here in Denver, my routine does not have the same perks.
I do not get fresh hearty bread, three different ones to choose from.
I’m not getting really good coffee, coffee that does not seem to get me all hyped up.
And of course, the walk with dogs and the amazing buildings to look at.
At home, I mosy on from bed to the shower and then find myself something to eat.
Next I am on-line and working.
I keep hoping to get in a morning and afternoon walk.
With daylight savings time, my mornings are once again back in the dark.
I am not very comfortable heading out for a walk around 7:30am.
I do think it would be fun to pretend that I’m walking to the office and then walk home from the office.
That way I would get in two half hour walks, each day.
My body would thank me for that and so would my mind!
How are your morning routines going? Did you consider how those help set up your day?
Train a little and get off to a great start! Cheers!
