I have always loved the saying "The first coffee of the day is a stalwart companion in the face of an unreasonable world". Now more than ever, this rings true. Our world is upside down and inside out and while many things have changed in my life, the one thing that has remained constant is my morning coffee ritual. It may start earlier these days, but this is my first priority and something that is not negotiable.
It is so easy to jump right into the laundry list of things that need to get done each day. I used to start off my day answering work emails and next thing you know I was working a 12-hour day because I started work at home at 6:00. For some of you it may be work, kids, or household chores that instantly start demanding your attention before the dawn even cracks. One day I decided this was ridiculous and that I was going to set time each morning for me and my cup of coffee.
I started to get up a little earlier, brewed my coffee, found my favorite spot on the couch, selected either my journal, a book or my phone to write, read or look up things that personally interest me. No work, to dos or answering the phone before I have my time. I allow myself a minimum of a half hour to an hour (that's even if I have to get up at 4:00am to do so). Ever since I started this morning ritual, I have had a much a better attitude and feel more balanced and less frustrated with all of the other things that demand my attention.
One of the greatest finds that I have come across to accompany my morning coffee time, is the Yeti Rambler Mug.
I am a cream and sugar kind of coffee drinker and I like my coffee hot. Having to go to the kitchen and heat up my mug two or three times during my morning ritual is fine but it takes up precious time. I have been looking for ways to keep my coffee warm. I have tried the electric warming plates and the silicone mug covers but they never worked for me. My mugs are too large and I would always forget to put the silicone cover back on my mug after taking a sip. I own the Yeti cooler and have been very impressed with its quality and ability to keep items cool for an extended period of time. So I decided to purchase the Yeti Rambler Mug and give it a whirl.
BOOM! This was what I had been looking for. It kept my coffee warm for over an hour and was large enough at 14oz, so I didn’t have to refill my cup. It is dishwasher safe, so no extra maintenance. It is not microwavable so that is something to know, but for me an hour of hot coffee is plenty of time.
