Make Getting To Work Easier and Smoother
Everyone has a bad morning once in a while, and while you cannot control everything; especially a "Help me Lord!" morning, as television's Archie Bunker would say, you can control some things.
These are the things I have learned through experience and my friends, the breakfast tip I share, is from a former senior citizen client.
Don't just plan in your head what you will wear tomorrow. Pull your outfit out of the closet for the next day, including your accessories, the night before. Do the same thing for your children. If you let them decide, you may not have to listen to the inevitable "I don't want to wear that." early morning argument. Once selected, place the clothing on a chair where they are easily seen.
Set the kitchen table before you go to bed. If you are having cereal put it on the table with the bowls and cutlery. Place your coffee in the coffeemaker so all you have to do is add cold water and press start. My senior used to do this, I would watch as she went about setting her table for her breakfast the next morning. I thought this was a wonderful and positive thing, at her advanced age she assumed she would live to see the next day, and without fail, prepared for it.
Lunch should not be last minute thing. If you make lunch yourself and/or your family, add the lunch items to your weekly grocery list. Make lunch at night, pack it and place names on the outside of the container when you put it in the refrigerator.
Instead of taking time to make beds in the morning, simply straighten the sheets and turn the covers back neatly. The added benefit is when you turn the covers up for sleeping, the sheets will be aired, cool and fresh.
Using these tips should help you to get past those bad mornings that make you want to scream. Make your mornings positive.
