Falling Back into Routines

I hate using the "F word" but fall is in the air. The leaves have started to change color, the days are shorter, and the mornings are cool. The kids are back to school and the chaos of summer is a distant memory.




Fall is my favorite season, I feel like it’s a natural time to reset & reintroduce routines. If you are a control freak like me you love routines, to do lists, and schedules.


Why?


It makes me feel in control.


But if you are like me, routines fall by the wayside during the summer as we try to make the most of every minute.


Are your mornings peaceful or completely chaotic? Are you always exhausted, hitting snooze over and over again, leaving you late and scrambling to get out the door?

Or

Do you wake up check your phone and immediately your mind is flooded with all the things you need to do paralyzing you panic?

Or

Are you racing around waking up children, getting breakfast, making lunches while everyone seems to be taking their lovely time and in no rush. So you lash out at your partner for not doing X, and run out of the house with your coffee in hand not sure if you remembered everything. On the way to dropping your kids off you put your hair in a ponytail and finish your make up while driving to the office.
