Wake up earlier. Get out of bed when you’re not sleeping. Rev the engine, get your blood flowing. Do a push up, do a sit up. Then do two push-ups. Work your way up to ten. Do some jumping jacks. Stretch. Go to the kitchen, make coffee.
There are two kinds of coffee drinkers: those with a deep appreciation for the quality of their brew, and crack addicts. I am the latter. I don’t have the patience for pressing and grinding and boiling bullshit in bullshit labware. I have the patience for fresh water, Folgers, and a day punctuated by 2 hour stay-warm cycles.
It’s important to note that this is all there needs to be in the creation of coffee. The guys at Pitti can have their yellow suits, their YSL cigarettes. And they can have your paisley-print coffee art too. If you’re compelled by the need to mix, mix it with hotter coffee, darker coffee, or Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. Coffee is a perfect beverage that needs no molestation. Get in the shower.
Start it warm, kill the heat after you soap. Cold water is good for you. It’s energizing, it’s good for your skin, and it keeps your testosterone at optimum James Bond levels. It’ll feel good after your little work out. Don’t wash your hair so much. Scrub your scalp with your fingers every other day. Your body oils do good things; just let ‘em. Wash your hair when it needs it.
Get out of the shower when you’re clean, you’re not pretty enough to stand around naked all day. Dry off with a new towel every week. Wipe the water out of your hair, don’t rat it all up. Put some lotion on your face; there’s nothing cool about looking like an 80-year-old Clint Eastwood unless you’re a 90-year-old Clint Eastwood.
Comb your hair, you’re not at Woodstock. Put the right amount of cologne on. Cologne isn’t meant to be smelled, it’s meant to be noticed. Shave if that’s your thing. Put some clothes on, you’re not at Woodstock.
Go back to the kitchen; stick a glass of whole milk in the freezer. Start breakfast. Employ good use of healthy fats, protein, and cast iron. Take it easy on the carbohydrates, Michael Phelps. Pull out your ice cold glass of milk and eat until you’re not hungry, save being full for meals Grandma cooks.
Start your day. Be more thankful for what you have. Work on those bad habits. Overuse “love” instead of those other four letter words. Don’t live inside your phone. Be reliable. And don’t let anyone tell you how to live your life, especially not people you follow on Tumblr.
Things will be far worse
than they are now.
And far better.
