I try to get things ready that I know I will need, for example, water, a snack on hand, if lunchtime approaches, leave it ready just to warm up in the 5-minute break and try to relax with some music from relaxation or some funny video. Regards.
Whenever I am getting ready to sit down awhile and play some cards I always make sure I've eaten something, have snacks nearby and some drinks. Having these things will make longer sessions more enjoyable, at least for myself.
I totally want to say "I rub one out, then power nap for 20 min, wake up and wash hands before sitting down to play" just to be funny, but I also don't really have a 'routine' before playing. I guess if I have a routine, it's make sure the kids are all fed and happy pre-game.
