It’s morning, which means it is time to start another day! No worries, though, because we have our morning routine up and going to help us conquer the day like a pro.
A healthy morning routine helps prepare us for the day ahead. If you are rushing out of bed late, scrambling around, and trying to get everyone ready and out the door, your day will continue to be stressful and hectic. You shouldn’t have to feel drained before 9 am! FYI, being late stresses kiddos out also. Hectic mornings can set a bad mood for the day for everyone. So let’s talk about how we can calm the chaos and start the day right!
As a parent, the morning can be sacred. Getting up an hour before your kids get up to enjoy peace energizes the soul and sets a healthy mood for the rest of the day. Is that realistic? Yes! But it takes a little effort on your part, but in the end, it’s completely worth it! Can you imagine what the day would look like if you started with less chaos? That day would be so beneficial for the whole family. Did you know that kids that are less stressed in the mornings perform better in school? So let’s start the habit of creating a healthy morning routine!
Starting a healthy morning routine starts the night before. Yep! You heard me. You must also create an evening routine. As the evening winds down, make a calming cup of tea instead of that extra glass of wine, sit down, take a deep breath, and plan out the next day. Once you get into the habit of planning your next day, it only takes a few minutes, but those few minutes help you tremendously. Having a daily plan enables you to be more productive, less stressed, and in control of the day.
Just like with anything you want to stick with. Create that habit. Get up at the same time every morning, and go to bed at the same time every night. That even means on weekends, my friend. What else do you need to do to get yourself out of bed before your kids worth it?
Here are some fun ideas for morning rituals. Play around with them and see what works for you. Or find another something that helps you start the day off on the right foot!
