If we are anything alike then we will both agree that mornings are very hard. Hitting snooze about 2 to 3 times…. maybe 4 is the normal and typical thing to do. But after that is something that can impact the rest of your day BIG-TIME
- Once you wake up, get a cup of coffee. Make that cup of coffee be your motivation to get up. or if you don’t like coffee, drink some ice cold water.
- Go work out. Yes, yes I know, we all hate waking up but now trying to add working out on top of it? Impossible to comprehend, but possible to do. Working out in the morning is the best way to get your day started. Don’t forget to stretch!
- Come back and shower all that hard-work and sweat off.
- After that, go watch the news, maybe jump on your social media sites and get all caught up, or maybe even jump onto your favorite blog site *wink wink*
- Make yourself some breakfast. Healthy of course! This is the most important meal of the day if you haven’t heard.
- Quick tidy up. Although it doesn’t seem important at this time, or even necessary, it’ll surely make cleaning up later a lot easier.
- Now is the makeup, hair, packing of bags, all things necessary for your busy big day ahead of you.
Now good luck and go concur the day!

Hate the night-time meltdowns when the toothbrushes come out? Here are a few tips to help make it a little bit easier…
FUN toothbrushes and toothpaste.
You’d be surprised at how motivated a child will become if they get to pick out a Spider-man or Hello Kitty toothpaste and toothbrush. Choosing a few different flavors of toothpaste is always a great idea as well so that they can mix it up each night.
Do it together
Kids learn best by seeing the behavior modeled for them. If you are consistent and brush your teeth next to them, kneeling down so that they can see better, they will likely copy you. Demonstrate how moving the toothbrush in a circular motion cleans the best, and that you want to get behind your teeth as well!
If they can think of cavities as little monsters that put holes in their teeth they’ll be more likely to want to fight them with their handy dandy toothbrush and “cavity-killing” toothpaste. After they’re done brushing ask them to open their mouth so that you can make sure they got rid of them all! Even better, there are mouthwashes like this Listerine Smart Rinse that tints the food particles, allowing them to see what they got rid of after they spit in the sink!
Make it a game
Kids love games and anytime you make something into a competition it instantly becomes more fun! Set a timer for 2 minutes and see who can make the most bubbles in their mouth by the end of the 2 minutes.
Compliment them on their good brushing
Positive reinforcement and consistency is key to instilling good habits at a young age. Create a sticker chart where they can add a sticker each time they brush their teeth, with the goal being twice a day.
