Morning Routines: A Breakfast Routine in The Office

At the moment, I’m choosing to have breakfast in the office most days, at least until I move to a new place, back in Canterbury. This is because the house I have been living in (and sharing with strangers) for over a year now is very small, and the chance of having the time and space to eat a nice breakfast by myself is even tinier. I do like to prepare my food with plenty of peace and space, because as an empath it’s very easy to pick on people’s energy and I don’t really want that to happen in the early hours of my day.

I consider myself however to be very lucky – the building I work at has all I need to prepare breakfast: a microwave, a toaster, and a coffee machine. So when arrive there every morning, I follow pretty much the same steps everyday: I switch on the coffee machine, I put my stuff in the office, I make one or two eggs using the microwave, and I toast half of a bagel.

This is one of the easiest routines I have right now and it doesn’t ‘eat’ much of my time in the morning. Between preparing and eating my breakfast, I probably take me no more than 10 minutes. I usually start working between 9 and 10 am, depending on the time I manage to get up (I’m not using any alarm), and walk out the door.

This routine is very different from the one I used to have in 2016 and 2017, but as you can find out in my posts about morning routines and rituals, the most important thing of a routine is that it fits your needs and current resources. On that note, you can check out my blog post on how to design a morning routine that works for you here, and also know more about the psychology of morning rituals here.
