    What are some things you do to actually wake up in the morning, after the alarm clock goes off?

      After my alarm goes off, I get up and turn it off.

      Did you think I would let it run? lol

    Hopping right out of bed, lulling about will only make you more tired and want to sleep longer. Jumping right out gets the blood flowing!

    After the alarm goes off, well, I would still be lying for a few more minutes smile Then check the time and jump out of bed. Washing my face with warm water in the morning helps me really "wake up."

    I like to stay sleepy until I start work. That wakes me up.

    I usually wake up without an alarm clock, but often with the help of my cat. The first think I have to do is go to the bathroom smile Then I go make coffee, feed the cat, turn the TV on for a morning news program and then log onto my computer and read email.

    Scanning e.mail and scanning something like HubPages for something that doesn't require a lot of alert-brain functioning, while I wait for the coffee to be done - that's pretty much my regular morning thing.  It takes a couple of giant cups of coffee to get me thinking about doing anything that requires more brain power that either of what I just mentioned.

    Stretch, whilst in bed.  Dangle legs over the side and stand up.  Walk and open window blinds to let in daylight.  Pull back bed cover to air bed.  Dress.  Put away pyjamas.   Open window.  Go out into my study, pull blind and open window.   The idea is to get fresh air in these rooms.  Then I go to the bathroom, splash water in face and go downstairs for breakfast, usually patting the cat on the down as she's come up to meet me.

    Howzat! for a routine...and I haven't even had breakfast yet, let alone been to the toilet, clearned my teeth or remade my bed yet.  Oh, and the shower depends on when I'm going out.

    This is not (AT ALL) to knock your very detailed version of your routine, but instead is an observation I find interesting...

    Except for the things about the cat (I don't have one these days), opening the windows (I sleep with mine open), and eating breakfast (which I don't always do), I described my routine as I did with the assumption that all the other similar stuff "goes without saying".    On the one hand, my brevity was a reflection of the fact that I described my morning routine at around 6 a.m. while I was in the midst of it (lol).

    The interesting observation, though, is:  "And they say women have more to say than men do!"   big_smile  (Never let it be said that I pass up the opportunity to point out yet one more example of how the "Mars/Venus" book got so many things wrong.   big_smile)
