Being mindful when the mind is still half asleep has always been easy for me. Focusing is simpler the less cluttered the mind is.
I can concentrate on a story or a scene or attempt to unravel a knot of thought that had me thoroughly vexed the day before. As the dream dew is burnt off by sips of coffee I get closer. I move forward. That’s what I strive for. Progress.
