  1. First and foremost, resist the urge to hit the snooze button on your alarm!
  1. Consider getting up just 10-15 minutes earlier. It’s amazing what a difference those extra minutes can make.
  1. Resist the temptation to check your email or go on social media in the mornings and don’t let your kids start looking at their devices.
  1. Make any lunches and get kids’ uniforms, sports gear etc ready the evening before it’s needed.
  1. Make sure bags are packed with everything needed the night before and put it by the front door. 
  1. Time flies when you’re in the shower. Put on a song and finish your shower when the song ends.  
  1. Wash your hair at night rather than in the morning.
  1. Have a quick and easy breakfast. Think granola with Greek yoghurt, cereal with fruit, breakfast muffins or toast. 
  1. Decide what you are going to wear the evening before – outfit indecision is a huge time waster in a morning.  
  1. Make sure any homework is completed the night before it’s due! No having to knock together an art project or book week costume at the last minute.
