Stress. Say it with me. S-T-R-E-S-S!!!! 72% of Americans believe that a stressful morning can affect the rest of the day. I AGREE. If I get off on the wrong foot, I just can’t seem to readjust.
I think it’s important to wake up and find the right balance for your family in order to set the tone for the rest of the morning and afternoon. The LAST thing you want to do is head out of the door in a frenzy. Been there. It’s not pretty.
Want A Less Stressful Morning? Let’s Talk About Your First 59!
IKEA believes that it doesn’t have to be that way! And you know what? I do too!!! I’ve teamed up with them and three other lifestyle experts to come up with a variety of morning routine tips to help you get off to a better start. All these tips are available on First59.com and on the First 59 Pinterest board.
I’ve added family / parenting related tips – like having your children come to the breakfast table already dressed and washed up. I cannot tell you how that has made our mornings so much easier!
There’s no more rushing through their meal because they still have to comb their hair and find an outfit. We haven’t run to catch a school bus in years!
But First59 offers a wide variety of tips – some that I would have never thought about but that I have taken and incorporated into my family routine.
If you are looking to make small adjustments that will have a major impact on your morning routine, check out First 59 today! And if you’d like to take a quiz to help identify your morning challenges and strengths, Oprah has one on her website that you should take.
