Matthew Weatherley-White: My Morning Routine

In a rare glimpse into the life of Caprock co-founder, Matthew Weatherley-White, My Morning Routine published a 14-minute article that spans from alarm clocks to caffeine, travel to fitness, and everything in-between.

What is your morning routine?

I’m fortunate enough in my life to wake without an alarm, so my mornings don’t always start at the same time. But I’m definitely a morning person. Left to my own devices, I rarely sleep past 6:30am, and am frequently up well before that. In fact, I’m typing this at 3:30am and was on my mountain bike yesterday morning at 4:50am. I also wake quickly, so long, slow mornings are not part of my life; once I’m up, I’m engaged.

How has your morning routine changed over recent years?

My morning routine has been bizarrely stable… Outside of my beverage and early-morning snack, I’ve experimented over the years with yoga, a brief attempt at developing a sitting meditation practice, regular exercise at a specific time, etc. But none of them have stuck. I think my mind – and my morning – just works best when turned reasonably quickly from the stillness of sleep to the velocity of what lies ahead in the day.

What and when is your first drink in the morning?

My first drink is one cup of either tea or coffee, with half and half and a squirt of agave or a spoonful of honey. I begin making it before I do anything else.
