FACILITY Magazine - Routines Questionnaire
Describe your morning routine. Below are some questions you can answer directly or use as prompts for what to include in your description. Answers can be as short or as long as you like, and feel free to skip any questions. If you'd prefer to write one long answer, we've given space for that at the end.
When do you typically wake up? Do you wake up at the same time every day?
Your answer
How long do you tend to lie in bed before you get up?
Your answer
When you wake up, what's typically the first part of your body you feel—an erection? Dry mouth? A stiff back? Is it usually a good feeling, or a bad one?
Your answer
When you wake up, what subjects tend to rise to the surface of your mind first? A task that slipped your mind yesterday or something you are going to do today? The immediate bodily needs of others (such as a baby that needs breastfeeding)? The news? What was the first thing you thought of this morning?
Your answer
How do your first thoughts usually make you feel? Excited? Anxious? Overwhelmed? How did you feel this morning?
Your answer
What do you do while you’re still in bed? (Half-sleep, read, check your phone, masturbate, etc?)

Your answer
What do you smell like when you wake up? What does your bed smell like?
Your answer
Do you groom yourself in bed? Brush hair? Rub boogers from your eyes?

Your answer
Do you eat breakfast? If so, what?
Your answer
Do you bathe or shower in the morning? Do you bathe/shower every morning?
Your answer
If you feel you need a shower but don’t have time or don’t want to, what do you do?
Your answer
Where does your towel go after you bathe or shower?
Your answer
Tell us about how you prepare your appearance: When do you get dressed? Right after you shower? Do you have a bathrobe?
Your answer
Tell us about getting dressed. Do you choose clothes the night before? Do you sometimes wear dirty clothes? How long does it take you to decide what to wear? Do you try on multiple outfits?
Your answer
Do you put on makeup? Go through a skincare routine? If so, tell us about it!
Your answer
How do you prepare your hair, if at all?
Your answer
Is exercise a part of your morning routine?
Your answer
Do you usually shit every day, or around the same time on the days you do shit? If you’re a morning shitter, does it just happen, as surely as the sun rises in the east, or do you set aside some block of time for getting down to business? Does anything about shitting ever disrupt your morning rhythm?
Your answer
What do you do while you’re on the toilet? Look at your phone, read a magazine, stare out the window, pet your cat?
Your answer
Are there things you do at home you don’t do in public—like use a Squatty Potty, or leave the door open?
Your answer
If you live with other people, does their presence influence your bathroom behavior (do you run water to cover the sound, or flush a few extra times, or light matches?)
Your answer
Are you less likely to wash your hands after you use the toilet at home (versus after using a public restroom)? More likely? The same?
Your answer
What do you dry your hands on (hand towel, washcloth, shower curtain, self)?
Your answer
Do you feel that you have started your day when you wake up, or is there some other marker for “starting your day”? (Leaving the house, getting the kids to school, having your first cup of coffee, taking a shit, etc) Tell us about it!
Your answer
Before you’ve “started your day,” do you read? Write in a journal? Consume the news in some fashion? Meditate? Pray? Do you look at your phone? Check the weather report? Check emails? Social media? For how long do you do these things?
Your answer
On a day when you leave the house or start work, how long does it tend to take between when you get up and when you “start your day”?
Your answer
What, if anything, is different about your morning movements and routines on weekends or days off? Do you get up at the same time, do you eat the same food, do you move at the same pace?
Your answer
Are there other people in your household who affect your morning routine? For example, roommates whose schedules you need to accommodate, or family members who depend on you? If so, tell us about it!
Your answer
Do you mostly wake up in the same place every day? If you have a home and there's another place you regularly wake up (a partner's, a family member's, a friend's, or any other place), what is different about your routine there/what do you have set up for yourself/do you like it?
Your answer
If you don't have a regular place to live, tell us about waking up in different places: is there a routine that you try to stick to no matter where you are?
Your answer
If you commute, do you listen to anything on your commute or before you leave the house (the radio, music, podcasts, turn on the TV in the background, etc?) What did you listen to this morning?
Your answer
If you commute, what do you think about, if anything, while walking, while riding the train or bus, while driving, while biking? If you take public transportation, is your thought pattern different while you're walking to the station or stop versus when you're riding the train or bus? What did you think about this morning?
Your answer
Is there anything we didn't cover that you'd like to mention?
