We all know how tough mornings can be. Who doesn’t want to have a smoother morning? Plan ahead, and get ahead! I’m sharing my 3 tips to a better morning routine!
3 Tips to a Better Morning Routine
- Plan Ahead
Tackle as many items as possible the night before. Set out clothes for the next day (for you and your kids), prepare bottles and lunches, make sure diaper bags and backpacks are packed and ready to grab on your way out the door, prepare the crock-pot dinner and store in the refrigerator.
- Get Out of Bed
Wake up one full hour before your child does if you have kids. This will allow you to workout, shower, get dressed, drink coffee, start the crock-pot, and get breakfast ready before the kids get moving. If you’re completely ready before they wake up, you’ll be able to focus on them and hopefully feel less stressed.
- Get Ahead
Plan to arrive 30 minutes early. Planning to arrive earlier than the normal time can get you where you need to be on time. Factor in your normal routes and traffic to avoid being late!
I hope these tips will help you get started in smoothing out your morning routine. Nothing is ever easy, but if you start somewhere, it will lead to happier days!
