The scene at home in the morning might be indescribable. Everyone is running, screaming and looking for things. You’re trying to hurry because you don’t want to be late for work. You also want to beat the traffic. You still have to take your kids to school and hope that you have enough time to arrive at work on schedule.
If it is already a habit in your family to keep doing the same thing, you might have to think of ways to avoid it. These tips will ensure that you won’t have a chaotic morning.
Wake up early
You have no time to get things done because you wake up late. If you try to at least be an hour earlier, you will finish everything on schedule. You will even have time to do other relaxing things like meditation and newspaper reading. Waking up early also gives you an allowance in case your kids wake up late.
Settle everything at night
You have to pack the things you will take to work the night before. You also need to do the same for your kids. You won’t have to find things or worry about what to wear when you already prepared them before you slept. You also have to talk to your kids to practice this habit, so you won’t get stressed by them.
If you feel irritated because you have no time to bathe, you can schedule your shower earlier than the rest of your family. You can even enjoy freestanding baths if you have one at home. You don’t want to waste this tub because you always rush for work. If you still can’t use it during the day, you can spend more time bathing at night.
Stop thinking about time and focus on getting things done. When you panic, everyone else panics and it leads to chaos. If you arrive for work late today, you can adjust your schedule, so it won’t happen the next day. Learn from your mistakes so that you can avoid them. You can also remind your kids about what made you late for the day, so they won’t do the same things next time.
Have a good rest the night before
The reason why you panic and feel stressed in the morning is that you didn’t have a good rest the night before. You woke up on the wrong side of the bed and you started your day in a mess. If you want to avoid it from happening, you need to rest well. Cancel all other night activities. If there are pending tasks that you have to rush, you can always do them the next day.
With these tips, your mornings will be a lot better. You won’t panic anymore. Your kids will be in a positive mood and will focus on their classes. You will also start your work right and end it well.
