Establishing Positive Routines

One of my "Secrets of a Simply Organized Life" (sign up here for a free copy) is having positive routines. Establishing and keeping positive routines is not always easy, but the benefits far outweigh the inconveniences. 

Great routines can help you be more rested, get where you need to be on-time, keep up on household duties and achieve your personal and professional goals. I hope you will find these tips useful in evaluating your own daily routines.
Take a good hard look at your current routines:  note what is working and what is not working. Are you rushing around every morning, creating a stressful environment for everyone in your wake? Or is sleep deprivation making you a bit, shall we say it? Crabby? 
Many families struggle with the morning routine, which really starts with a good evening routine and getting enough sleep. Here are some tips for establishing a stress free evening routine:
  • Have a set bedtime on most evenings for both yourself and your children.
  • Plan for any evening activities to finish a least an hour before your bedtime. 
  • At that time, start winding down by planning for the next day, taking care of loose ends and getting ready for bed. 
  • Lay out your clothing for the next day, so that it is quick and easy to get ready. Some may even want to prepare breakfast for the next morning. 
  • We all have more to do than we can accomplish most days. Jot down those unfinished tasks on a notepad or in your calendar for another day. 
Before evaluating your morning routine, make sure you are planning for the day ahead the night before. Then look at exactly where the morning routine could be improved up for a smoother start to your day.
