MY MORNING AND NIGHT ROUTINE.... a true game changer:
I woke up one morning and everything was in its place. The kitchen was clean, the toys were put away and I already had my latte. I was ready to go and in a great mood! How did this happen?? Why didn’t I figure this out earlier??
For several months, I would sit in frustration because the dishes in the sink were piling up, toys were everywhere, laundry was out of control and I couldn’t get my act together to even take care of myself. I wasn’t happy. I constantly felt disappointed or overwhelmed in my ability to create a great home.
I needed a change. I needed a routine.
A morning and night routine that would push me to spend 5-10 minutes on the things I do not enjoy doing. At least 5-10 on taking care of myself before diving into mommy-hood to take care of my little one. I didn’t want to make my routine too burdensome because then I knew it wouldn’t happen. So, I created a simple routine in my Mommy-do journal that changed everything for me.
Here is my short and simple morning and night routine that I couldn’t wait to share with my fellow Mommy-Doer’s!
This routine has been a true game changer. I wake up and the house is clean. I feel good because I am taking care of myself and making the time to relax before I take care of others. This routine gave me time back during the day so I could actually do FUN things with my little one and helped me stay organized. It eliminated my frustrations of a chaotic home and made me and everyone else in this home….HAPPY!
Try it out for a few weeks and it will become a habit for you too!
“I am taking care of myself today!”
Do those words sound familiar? I was admittedly the first time mom who would tell myself this message repeatedly, yet I would never follow through. When it got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t recognize myself anymore both inside and out, I decided that I needed to be done with the excuses. I didn’t want to glance in the mirror and see a worn down, tired, and unhealthy version of myself.
