    INFJ's can be soooo weird. Hehe.

    I actually heard it's better to wake up and leap from bed into a barrel roll.

    As for routine, the first thing I do when I wake up is roll over and groan really loud and think negative thoughts about all the shit I have to do that I will likely put off till the next day.

    I am not a morning person. I often just stay up. When I get up, I eat something and take my ADD meds... when they kick in I remember where I put my detailed list of things to do. During the normal school year, I have everything packed up by the door so that I don't have to think about it before I can focus... I always take late morning classes so I can drop my daughter at school and come back home and get showered/dressed without her trying to disassemble anything. When my SO is around, he wakes me up and brings me something to put on my stomach with my meds. Then he does the school trip while I lay in bed pretending that I don't have to get up.

    OMG, OMG, OMG. Now I read this and...can't...resist...the urge...

    I thank you, Synarch, from the depths of my heart, for adding to my weirdness

    I get my bag ready for the gym.
    Rock on. That's the way to start the day right.

    Mine is similar:
    (1) Get up
    (2) Coffee + Protein Shake (Whey, Soy Mlk, Peanut Butter, Banana, Cinnamon, a little ice cold H20) + Vitamins (Handful)
    (3) Feed Doggie, Walk Doggie, Let Coffee Kick in...
    (4) Shower, Shave, Get Dressed
    (5) Breakfast with Wifey and Kiddies
    (6) Empty Dryer, Lay out Clothes on Bed in Den, Transfer CLothes from Washer into Dryer, Empty Hamper into Washer All things at once Cold water, dye free detergent, color safe bleach, VOILA!
    (7) Herd kids into car drive them to school, I go to work...
    (8) Take nap at office.

    I cannot answer this question.

    My alarm clock goes off, and somehow I find myself sitting at work.

    What's your morning routine and if pre-meditated, why do it and how has it worked for you?

    coffee/tea, walking, stretching, yoga, exercise, meditation, watching the sun, running around, throwing the alarm clock, eating on the go/full breakfast, etc
    Step 1: Wake up early by accident because my alarm is on.
    Step 2: Decide if I need to wake up early or of I can roll back over and sleep till Noon.
    Step 3: Varies beyond the decision at Step 2.

    I am waken because the alarm rings
    I shut off the alarm
    I sleep
    I wake up again and see that I have to be at work in an hour
    I fall out of bed
    I go make coffee and have one till its ten to full
    I put on half of my office dress the wrong way
    I leave house and drive with insane speed to work to make up for the coffee pause
    I show up for work point 8 am
    And from then on only follows: coffee, coffee,coffee and in the evening I cook a nice meal

    Glad I only have to work three days a week, otherwise the stress will gonna kill me

    I set my alarm for about an hour before I need to leave the house to catch a bus and two trains.
    However, I know I only need like 10 minutes to groom and leave the door.
    Sometimes I sleep for an extra 30 minutes until the top 40 hits on my clock radio annoys me to wake up.
    Sometimes I wake up at the alarm and prepare and pack coffee, breakfast, and lunch.
    The morning always includes feeding the pets.

    Sadly, I do not have any positive or healthy routines or rituals, just doing whats needed to start my day.
    I guess if I actually woke at the alarm I could begin my day with stretches, watering the plants, drinking some water, and preparing the workday meals.
    I guess I could be more efficient, but I am kinda happy with my current options. :P
