I am a part of a lot of Facebook groups, and I have noticed a common question pop up with moms. "How do I make my morning run more smoothly?" I always ask the same question. "What is your morning routine?" More times than not, a routine does not exist, and this is a problem. If you don't know what is coming, your child/children don't know what is coming. We think of routine and children going hand in hand, but routine can help eliminate stress and anxiety in adults. By simply knowing what is going to come next, you thrive. Here are five easy tips to get your morning routine done right. 


  1. Know your intention; if you do not know your intention for starting a morning routine, you will fail before you get started. If your intention is to exercise, your morning is going to look different than a mother who wants some quiet time alone.  When doing this try looking at the different areas of self-care and where you may need to do a bit more work.
  2. Realistic activities, what can you do realistically on a regular without feeling spread thin. If your morning routine is stressing you out, you are doing too much. The moring should flow and feel calming (especially if you get that time with no children). 
  3. Plan, don't wing it, come up with what you want to do first, second, and third, and so forth in the morning. Write the plan down until you know it by heart (I did this for the first two weeks) to make sure you do things in the same order or close to every morning. 
  4. Consistency, be consistent, but be forgiving of yourself. Try and do this routine every morning or at least six days out of the week. Be easy on yourself when you cannot do the routine and just pick it up the next day you can do it. This routine should not cause stress.
  5. Reevaluate, intentions change, and what you need out of your morning may change. I suggest reevaluating your purpose every 3 to 4 months at a minimum every six months.

I wanted to make this process easier for moms, so I have created a worksheet using the worksheets. You can not only schedule your day but work through your intentions and goals for a morning routine.  As the school year comes back around my morning goal will have to change. Will yours be changing? What is your morning goal?


You have the control, power, and strength to heal from within.
