Mornings are probably the most chaotic part of our day, next to bed time. I’m not sure what it is about starting and ending the day–but I tell you, the struggle is real. Since summer is coming to an end here soon and the hustle and bustle of real life is slowly sinking in, I decided I better fix our morning routine as soon as possible. So I’ve played around, experimenting what’s best and what works for us. Finally, I have it somewhat figured out and by somewhat, I mean as good as it’s going to get. 😉 So today I’m going to share three tips I’ve learned to making your morning routine smoother and the one go to item that you NEED to have in your fridge for a snack at any time of year.
Tip #1: Accept the inevitable. Life is going to happen. You might wake up late, the baby might spill everywhere, the dogs will make a mess and you’ll probably be stressed most days. It’s normal, just accept it and run with it. I’ve found that the more I stress about the stressful situations the worst the rest of my day ends up being. When I just shrug it off, laugh about it and move on, things are a lot easier for not just me, but all of us.
Tip #2: Make your life easier and buy on the go breakfast. LALA Yogurt Smoothies are our go to breakfast items. We all eat them, they’re made with real fruit, have 5 grams of protein and they’re easy for on the go! Plus, Blake loves them and that’s really a win when the whole family can eat the same thing.
Tip #3: Prep the night before. This was actually a struggle for me. I don’t mean to do things last minute, but I’m so busy that it seems to always happen that way. I’ll tell you though, I feel 100X better when I know that my morning is going to run smoothly and I don’t have two hundred things to do before 10am. Tidy up the house before bed, prep lunch if you’re going somewhere and have a bottle ready for your baby–whatever you can do the night before, do it!
THE GO TO SNACK
I mentioned it in tip #2, but I’m going to say it again, GO BUY LALA Yogurt Smoothies!!! I pair them up with nuts and most days even just drink it by itself. They’ve just been lifesaving for us on busy mornings and it’s something that we all agree on, which saves this Mama time and makes grocery shopping easier! My favorite is strawberry by far, but they have tons to choose from!
It’s in the back of Walmart, with the milk and the cheese. 😉 You’re welcome.
And you can earn cash back by using Ibotta!
We’re slowly but surely getting the hang of this whole routine thing and just in time for summer to end! That’s probably for the best, since summer is all fun and games 😉 What do you do to make things go smoother?!
