My husband forwarded me a link to a story on lifehacker about changing your wake up habits. I think he was sending me a hint. Anyway, I read the story and think it’s full of advice for those of us challenged to get up and at ’em in the morning — especially with kids in tow.
Here are some quick take aways from the article:
- Love this one: “Think in the morning, act in the noon, read in the evening, and sleep at night.”
- “Gretchen Rubin, blogging at The Happiness Project, suggests a deadline-oriented, precise routine for your kids to eliminate the dreaded ‘One more minute!'”
- “Take control of your workday by prioritizing one taskâ€”just one thing you really need to doâ€”and put off opening your inbox for one hour.”
- Another one I love: “Whether it’s your watch, your cellphone, or a microwave reminder, set something in your home to beep at a certain time every night. When that beep goes off, around 10 p.m., for instance, it means you should drop what you’re doing and spend just a bit of time preparing for your morning, while you’re actually awake.”
