I love routines.
I love organisation.
I love knowing what is going to happen and when it is going to happen.
Now, I also know that not everybody is quite like me, but if you’ve had a bit of an off-kilter weekend, or an emotional day, there is nothing more soothing than hitting Monday with your normal routine. Just the process of getting up, eating breakfast, showering, dropping kids at school, and doing the groceries… no thought required. Every Monday happens this way, more or less, and it is an awesome way to start your week.
It’s also really important for your kids, to know what the week-day expectations are. Even kids that are happy to cruise get benefits from knowing, without thinking, what the day will entail.
By the end of the week, routines are becoming a bit lax, and by the weekend, can be non-existent. So don’t bag Mondays – it’s the perfect way to set you up for a successful week, and ultimately an upcoming successful weekend.
