What Do You Do Before You Start to Write?

I don't know about you, but I do a whole bunch of things before I settle down to write. Here's what I've done this morning: Got up, wrote in journal (I recommend this as a loosening-the-writing-muscles exercise), went for run with husband (I recommend this as an exercise for other muscles), showered, made myself poached eggs, washed bathtub and sink, had two cups of green tea, phoned best friend for quick chat ... and now here I am, ready to dive in. Today, I'm working on a lifestyle story for Maclean's Magazine.

What do you like to do before you settle into your work? I think a lot of people have their own routines... and I'm curious to know more about what other people do!
