With the start of a new school year, your morning routine may be a little rusty. You and your kids may kind of forget how mornings work, or you expect it to go really smoothly and it doesn't, or maybe you’ve never really had a consistent morning routine at all.
If you’re struggling to get your kid out the door on time without a lot of stress and conflict, this is the episode for you! I’m giving you really practical tools and strategies to help create more calm in your mornings.
How To Create an Easy Morning
I’ll walk you through a 3-step process to help you figure out what needs to get done, how much time it takes to get those things done, and when to do them.
After this episode, you’ll know exactly how to create your morning to-do list, estimate how long each task takes and work backwards to create a realistic timeline.
You’ll even figure out how to build in time for yourself, so you’re set up for a good day once the kids are out the door.
And if you notice that your to-do list is going to take much longer than you’d like…I’ve got tips for that, too.
The Biggest Secret of All
Finally, we dive into the biggest secret of all…Being on time doesn’t actually matter all that much. You’re a great person and a great mom, even if your kids are late.
While getting to school on time is a good goal, it's not worth sacrificing your peace and your connection with your kids.
Things happen, and stress, worry (or full-on panic) and rushing around are not going to make your kids move faster. Most of the time, it just leads to more meltdowns and forgetfulness, which costs you even more time.
Peace and Harmony are always more important than stress and perfection.
