Tanya's mornings pair startup and transition, self and partner, coffee and gratitude.
“I love slow mornings. That's why I love the weekends.”
§ What time do you get to sleep? What time do you wake up?
I go to bed around 10:30/11pm & wake up around 7am.
§ What do you dream about?
My dreams have been super vivid ever since I became Pregnant in February. Most nights my dreams consist of hilarious adventures & family.
§ What’s the first thing you do once you’re awake?
Turn on the coffee machine & head for the shower.
§ What morning ritual do you have that’s sacred to starting your day off right?
Turning on the coffee, shower, slap on some makeup, get my cats fed, get my spouses & my lunch ready & if I have time feed myself or pack my breakfast to eat at work! It's been my morning routine & if it changes to be more simplistic I would love it! I check emails, social media on my way to work. I try & only check my emails 3 times a day. Still may seem a little excessive but my spouse is constantly on his email so I feel I'm in the lead!
§ What one possession/object is essential to your morning?
Essential is my morning coffee. I feel like I'm missing apart of myself if I don't have it! Otherwise it would be my phone because I work from it.
§ With whom do you spend your mornings?
My other half, Spencer. He has a very demanding job involving computers so I tend to get us both ready in the morning as far as coffee, lunch & tell him our errands for after work. We're lucky enough to be able to go to work together!
§ What do you eat for breakfast?
Yogurt and granola with fresh raspberries or blueberries is my go to right now. Otherwise you'd find me eating just cereal. I love plain cereal!
§ What kind of coffee do you drink in the morning, and how do you prepare it?
I either have a latte, cold brew or coffee prepared as a double double. I was never a coffee person prior to meeting Spencer. Now we have an awesome coffee maker, espresso machine & I know how to make a mean cold brew!
§ What’s the one upgrade you wish you could add to your morning?
One upgrade I wish I could add to my morning would be more time! I love slow mornings. That's why I love the weekends. Although I still work for myself on weekends, I get to enjoy my mornings!
§ What do you consider the end of your morning?
11:30am when I start to think about lunch.
