Plan & Prep for Success


Success is in the preparation.
Being prepared certainly keeps my stress levels down. When I am not prepared, I spin in circles. Sometimes, literally. I circle around my house looking for my keys and cell phone and other stuff. I need to be prepared…lunch mostly packed, bags (school bag, gym bag) packed and outfit picked out the night before. I even like to know after school plans ahead of time, when possible.
When I don’t have these things figured out and prepared, I am scattered. Usually, this leads to not pleasant school mornings. But having seen just how pleaasant prpared mornings are, I really like to be prepared.
Now, I must remember this and DO it every damn day. NO EXCUSES. I like being happy and non-scatterbrained. I am realizing when I plan ahead, when I prepare for mornings, I have better, more productive, and more all-around good days. Less stress in the morning lets me take the rest of the day in stride. A proper breakfast (for me this means eating before noon as I have a habit of putting off eating then being overly hungry/sick/crabby-mean) has always been said to be the most important meal of the day; it sets the tone for the day. Having my bags packed and meals planned also starts the day off on a good note.
Plan ahead.
