A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 41

How can you use “bookends” to master your intentions for the day? Bookends are our morning and evening routine. As busy moms — sometimes these are the only things we have full control about what happens.

If you are overwhelmed with all the advice of cleaning routines, and paper routine and you don’t know where to start with routines as a busy mom …. let’s start here and create your day for you.

Where to start when creating a routine that works for you in your home. Here’s some suggestions, but make it work for you …

Try to start with your morning routine.
1. get up early … even just 5 minutes (key … you don’t need to be a morning person!)
2. focus on you by starting with devotions or meditations
3. personal development
4. your top 3 priorities or one tasks
5. get mom dressed ( so you feel good!)
6. empty your dishwasher and put on a load of laundry

Or if morning routines are overwhelming start with your evening routine.
1. Prep your meals for tomorrow
2. Do the dishes (especially if it causes you anxiety the next day!)
3. Doing the trach, floors …
4. Do a 15 minutes cleanup … ask your family to help!
5. Reflect on your day … what was good
6. Plan your next day
7. Finish your day in prayer

Lets’ dive into making your morning and evening routines works for you! That is the key takeaway. Ending your day with intention and purpose and getting started the way you want to that feels good for you and your family!
