They say a good morning starts with a good night, and this is often referring to a restful night of sleep, which, come on, as moms we all know can be fleeting. But the real truth is that (no matter how much sleep you get) a good morning starts before you go to sleep with a good evening routine.
If you’ve read any of my posts on the topic, you already know how establishing routines can help moms rock their days:
- Multiple studies show kids thrive on them. They are linked to better social-emotional health and reduced rates of childhood obesity. Plus they can make school mornings so.much.easier. 🙂
- They help you prioritize what is important and free up brain power for more thinking without fatiguing.
- They provide freedom by helping you identify the space in your day to fit more into your life that you want or need.
And even if you don’t have any other set routine in your day, I urge you to create one for your evenings. Once it’s habit, your morning self will thank you!
