Monthly Resolution: Getting Yourself Ready

Resolution:  Use that time in the morning to put yourself together.

Now that I’m getting up with my alarm clock, I need to take that time to charge my batteries at the start of the day.  I need to eat breakfast, kiss my husband before he heads off to work, work out, take a shower, put on some makeup and do my hair, dress in something nicer than sweatpants, read a chapter of a book, pray, and get things around for the day. 

Right now, I am getting up with my alarm clock (for the most part), but I’m still lazing around.  Just tinkering around, spending too much time on the internet when I get up, and so on.  The challenge is that I need to see getting myself around in the morning as not just another list of things to do, but something that will benefit me, my family, and my day. 

My hopes and goals for this resolution:  Making time for and taking care of myself will make me a better person, wife, and mother because I will feel more organized, accomplished, beautiful, and overall, more put together.

Would you like to join me in this mission?

Here’s the game plan:

  1. See yourself as the beautiful woman you were created to be.  This beauty needs to be nurtured in order to grow.  You deserve it, and you can do it!  If you need to, write a note telling yourself so, and tape it to a place where you will see it often.
  1. Don’t feel guilty about taking the time to do something that is just for you.  You are important too.  Remember that when you take care of yourself, your inner and outer beauty will shine brighter, and it will make you a better person for everyone in your life.
  1. Come up with a morning schedule.  It doesn’t have to be fancy or set in stone.  Set your clothes out the night before.  Plan a short morning home work out a few days a week.  Have a 10 minute makeup and hair routine. 
  1. Make it something you look forward to.  Find a really good book to read – something you really enjoy.  Get a piece of jewelry or a new outfit or two that make you feel fabulous.  Get some new healthy breakfast recipes and try them out.  Play your favorite music while you’re getting ready.
What are you doing in the morning to rejuvenate and take care of yourself?
