I am not a morning person and I have no plans to become one! Even though the first few hours of the day are not my favorite, I have learned how to make them as productive and pleasant as possible. One of the best ways to help a morning go smoothly is to implement an evening routine (click here to view mine). I like to eliminate the amount of thinking I have to do in the morning, so I know exactly how long it takes to get ready and have it planned out in a detailed time schedule that I follow each day.
I’ve worked a few household chores into my morning routine, and I find that it goes a long way toward keeping me on track with my housekeeping goals! Most of these tasks are done every day of the week, even on Sunday or days I have to get up really early.
I thought it would be fun to let you follow me around the house one morning, so I put together a little video showing you what I do each day. Here are the things you won’t see in my morning routine:
- Making the bed: Paul does that every day!
- Getting myself ready for the day: if you really want to see me without makeup, you can watch my Fresh in Fifteen video here. 🙂
- My daily quiet time: that’s not a routine, it’s part of my life
What have you done to make your least favorite part of the day into a productive part of the day?
