Remember when you were little, and it was the last day of summer vacation – and tomorrow was the first day back at school?
Before bed, you chose your favorite outfit and laid it out so you would be ready. You (or your parents) might have planned your breakfast and morning routine so you could get out the door on time, ready to take on the all-important start of a brand-new school year.
(Or was that just at my house?!)
Anyway … somewhere along the line, most of us outgrew that nighttime prep routine – usually in our rebellious teenage years.
And then again, with all the craziness that happened last year, we stopped giving much thought to setting ourselves up for success in the morning.
This is pretty ironic, since for a lot of us, the morning can be one of the most stressful, chaotic parts of our days!
How you START your day will set the tone for your entire day.
Well, I have a little challenge for you.
Take a cue from 8-year-old “you” and think about the things you can do TONIGHT to get tomorrow off to a GREAT start.
Then spend a few minutes after dinner getting them done!
Maybe it’s making sure your clothes are ready for tomorrow … that your meals are planned and/or prepped … and your workout clothes are packed and ready to go … or if you’re working out at home (as I am!) you know what workout you’ll be doing.
Maybe you even go the extra mile and put together a quick to-do list so you don’t lose sleep worrying you’ll forget something.
It worked then, and it will still work now.
As I mentioned the other day, it’s the small habits we build into our daily lives that will help turn your 2021 goals into a reality.
Try this for ONE week and see what a difference it can make for you.
Heads up: I’ve got another great way to jumpstart those healthy habits – the Little Spring Dress Project, which kicks off on Monday, April 12. I’m just putting the finishing touches on it but, bottom line:
It’s a month-long challenge with results-driven nutrition, tips, motivation, and inspiration.
I’ll have more detailed info by the end of the week. 🙂
Keep up the greatness,
