For quite some time I have been suffering from “laziness syndrome”. Today finally I pulled myself up to write something.
Mornings, Oh! God, Mornings can be so hectic and chaotic. My alarm goes off at 5:30 a.m. and then starts the phase of snoozing for 5 minutes and then re-snoozing for another 5 minutes. I and my husband have to leave home in any case at 8:30 a.m., drop the kids at daycare and then move forward towards our respective offices.
I know how stressful my mornings were. Most of time I was shouting, Hurry up! We are getting late. Sometimes we were searching for car keys, sometimes Shaurya crying his lungs out because he wanted to take the 4 feet tall teddy to daycare with him, and sometimes, it would be breakfast! Shaurya wanted to have vermicelli, Shanaya wanted Stuffed Parantha, I had made Poha. So it was a complete mess.
I thought it was not working out. It was very stressful for every one of us, often leading to shouting on kids. Also, beginning the day on a negative note would spoil everybody’s whole day. So, here’s what I do now to have better and managed mornings.
This small tips and changes in my daily routine has helped me overcome the morning rush and anxiety.
