Other's prefer to brush their first before drinking water because they don't like it but in my case, every time I wake up, I gargle a small amount of water or mouthwash first then I drink water before brushing my teeth. Because in what I have learned, our body needs to have a glass of water before we start up our day. But it all depends on what will you going to do first.

3 years ago, or way back when I was in my Junior High School I used to drink a lot of coffee from 2-3 cups but now I shift to drinking green tea every morning after the workout because it feels like all the soreness in my body was gone. Hence, it all depends on you on which one will you going to drink, both are significantly good for our health but don't drink too much of it.
When I was a kid, my grandmother always told me that before I go out of our house, I need to clean our front yard, cultivate the soil in the pot and water the plants. Thus, until now, I always do this sometimes in the morning sometimes in the afternoon.

It is not advisable to take a bath after a workout so basically you need to have a little rest like 20 - 30 minutes before you reward yourself to take a bath/shower from the sweats you had during on your workout. And it is actually good to take a bath in the morning so that you will feel fresh throughout the day and have a clearer mind.

One of the important meal is breakfast so you need to eat in the morning. In addition, it typically leads to a considerably healthy diet and lifestyle as well as into your work performance.
In my breakfast, I usually eat oatmeal since it's like my energizer food or sometimes I ate bread or pandesal and then a cup of tea. I eat alone because every time I woke up, the only living things left in my home are my dogs and me, but there are times that I woke up early and I can see them getting busy preparing for themselves because they are getting late to work/school. Therefore, it's just a miracle for us to eat breakfast altogether and I don't eat breakfast nowadays because of my intermittent fasting huhu (I sacrificed my breakfast so that I can eat dinner with my family hehe)

Water your mind to grow your soul.
Actually, I am not that good at English but my mother and my sister always thought me to read books to learn the language, learn something like facts and etc. or it will make me develop or grow more. Sometimes I can read 5-10 books a year but sometimes I can only finish 3 books, depends if I am busy. But is actually good to read a book a day even if it's just a few pages or 2-3 chapters. So, don't stop learning, just keep on growing.
