If you’ve been a reader here for a while then you know that I have been trying to get more organized in my life and at home. A few months ago I came across the Make Over Your Mornings course by Crystal Paine.If you don’t know who Crystal Paine is then you are truly missing out. She is known for her blog Money Saving Mom where she gives advice about money management and time management among other things. She wrote this great book called Money Saving Mom’s Budget where she walks you through the baby steps needed to set up a successful budget.
Anyways, back to Make Over Your Mornings… This is a 14-day online course designed to help you take the stress out of your morning routine. There are a series of videos and worksheets with one for each day that help prioritize your tasks. I felt rejuvenated after taking this course. It helped me stream-line the tasks that have to be done in the morning and get rid of the tasks that were weighing me down. Before I took this course I didn’t have an actual morning routine. Most days I would run late for work trying to get my daughter and myself ready. I honestly felt like I was failing at life since I hate being late for anything. Make Over Your Mornings made me realize that if I could just set up an actual routine for myself that I would not only be on time, but I wouldn’t feel like a zombie on my way to work. It was a truly amazing realization.
I’m about to give the Make Over Your Evenings class a try so look for a post on that in the future!
