Beating the Morning Rush

victoria chart company reward charts blog - Morning Routines - Start your day the right way

Is morning a crazy time in your home? If so, read on – we may be able to help. One of the easiest ways to make mornings go smoothly is to establish a consistent morning  routine for everyone in your home (kids included) that actually works. Here are some tips to do just that:

  • Make sure everyone is getting enough sleep. Use a sleep chart to develop a healthy bedtime routine.
  • Organization starts in the evening before  – get the breakfast table set, clothes laid out for the kids, backpacks packed and ready
  • Make the packed lunches the night before if possible
  • Be the first one up and awake – don’t hit your snooze button! Maybe think about setting your alarm 15 minutes earlier than you would normally get up.
  • Keep breakfast simple – making yogurt parfaits the night before while making dinner
  • Set a good example yourself – don’t be screaming at your family about your lost possessions!

Once you have a morning routine for your family, stick with it and discuss all the steps with your family.   This will help you recognize any glitches or perhaps the need to re-order some of the steps.
