Like many, many things in the world, the classic morning routine still looks wildly different than it did before, well, everything. With a lot of uncertainty lingering about the future, it’s important to remember that we can only control what’s within our own grasp, and our routines are one of them. A bunch of us have re-worked our morning routines to complement WFH lifestyles and hybrid schedules — and we’re still obsessing over the people who seem to have crafted the perfect-yet-doable productivity tactics.
That’s why we asked Diego Gonzalez-Zuniga (the head of retail, experiences, and partnerships at a wellness startup) for some of his favorite products to make a morning really, truly good. “I take my morning routine to the next level by dancing in my apartment or sometimes on my way to the subway,” Gonzalez-Zuniga says. “It’s important to me to keep my mind refreshed and clear throughout the day. Taking mental breaks is just as important for me, and a key to being as productive as I can be.”
It’s also why Nespresso’s Vertuo Boost Coffee Capsules — which add 20% more caffeine per capsule than the regular capsules — are the ideal complement for an energizing and productive morning. (Plus, they come in a range of flavors.) Read on for Gonzalez-Zuniga’s morning hacks, and favorite products, to help you be your best self, no matter how early the alarm rings.
