A cold cup of tea. It happens when you set yourself up for a moment of relaxation but then life happens. What we set out to do gets forgotten quickly and the day is ready to start with out us. We come back home later to a cold little reminder of the good intention we had during the start of the day.

I was all ready to sit down and work on Day 2 of the Make Over Your Mornings course when a little knock at my door asked if I was coming to church. Of course I could not turn that down, I had gotten dressed for it after all. I had just not waken up with enough time to do the course before it was time to go.
When I got home I read through the workbook and watched Crystal’s video. (It was still before noon, so that is kind of morning, right!) As for the tea, it became ice tea, and everything is fine. Today’s challenge was to come up with ways to create a better morning by preparing for it the night before, as in a bedtime routine. Which will be great, I know I needed one last night. I stayed up way too late which lead to pushing snooze on my alarm, instead of getting up when I needed to.
Here are my idea’s to help prepare for less frazzled mornings:
- Make sure the sink is empty of all dirty dishes, and not convince myself they need to ‘soak’ overnight.
- Wipe down the counters. (The first two Crystal mentioned as part of her bedtime routine, great idea)
- Find a few pairs of socks for the next day. I go through a lot of socks since my boots for the barn have some tears in them, they get wet quickly.
- Turn on the tea kettle, take a quick shower and relax before bed.
- Make sure to refill the kettle so I can turn it on right away in the morning!
Do any of you have a bedtime routine? What do you do to make the next day get off to a smoother start?
