Finding Comfort in Routines

Do you have a daily routine you follow? Are you more of a schedule person? Would you rather fly by the seat of your pants?

I find great comfort in my daily routines. I have a pretty strict morning routine to launch my day and put me in a good emotional space. This morning foundation has been key in helping us be consistent with our homeschool studies. I am always tweaking and refining it to make it better for the season we're in.

Children naturally find comfort in routines. They LOVE to know what’s coming next! It also reduces the amount of mental energy that’s required to figure out what needs to be done at any given time. It helps to form good habits.

I have afternoon and evening routines that I find help life go more smoothly, too. These involve laundry, getting dinner on the table, and having clean dishes.

What does your day look like?  What could you implement to make the day run more smoothly?
