Mornings are my enemy. I hate waking up and love sleeping in, but that just doesn’t fly anymore having an 18 month old. Starting your morning off on the right foot sets the tone for the rest of the day so I am a firm believer in making your mornings go as smoothly as possible. These 9 habits will improve the quality of your day and make you a better wife and mother for your family.
Coffee, Coffee, and more Coffee
I know this won’t apply to everyone, but in my world if I don’t have my coffee in the morning I am clearly dragging through the rest of the day. Get a coffee maker (this is the one we have and it is AMAZING!) that you can preset a time to begin brewing, that way you will always wake up smelling the coffee. If you don’t like coffee, find that drink that puts a little pep in your step in the morning, maybe a cup of tea or a smoothie.
Get Up On The First Alarm
For most this is nearly impossible and I’m no stranger to setting early alarms specifically for pressing snooze, but I have discovered that if I actually wake up on the first alarm it is much easier to get going in the morning.
Take A Morning Shower
There is nothing like a quick shower to wake you up in the morning!
