For reasons of Age I have been reading articles about the microbiome. Many tell you What Not to Do and those suggestions are often Very Odd. (Don’t Eat Onions. Don’t Eat Dinner. Don’t Eat Anything Sweet) They are reiterated by Experts on Mark Hyman’s podcast. With certainty and sometimes even with charm. What to Do is a mild small answer.
When you wake up you don’t
have to do anything except drink
whatever it is you like: coffee with half and half
and one sugar is more than fine.
So is turmeric tea and boiled water with a little lemon.
When you wake up you might want to
read a poem or two, or a story, or even listen
to Morning Joe. He’s changed a little for the better.
Or a piece of music. All music is acceptable even
old 60’s songs. Also Bach and Um Khulsoum. If today
you do not meditate, do not walk 10,000 steps,
do not take an exercise class, or return your overdue
library book, that’s ok too. About breakfast you never
have to have a Protein Shake unless you want to.
Almond croissants are always OK. So are all fruits
especially mangoes because they are orange inside.
When you wake up, you might want to consider
the word up. Or not.
