No snooze buttons allowed
Getting up on time is the key to a good morning routine. Ideally everyone (kids and adults) would wake on their own with the sun rising and the birds chirping because they went to bed on time and are perfectly rested. Yeah, right. In the real world most of us use alarm clocks. The trick is to just get up when it rings. Period. Everything else in your morning depends on getting up on time so just get up, even if you’re tired. Besides, snooze buttons really don’t help you get more sleep anyhow! Here’s how to trick yourself into being a morning person.
Dress before leaving the bedroom
Wandering around in pajamas all day is fun but save it for the weekends when you can really enjoy it. Most kids Reader’s Digest talked to said they choose their outfit the night before so they can step out of bed and into their clothes. Some parents even confessed they have their elementary-aged kids sleep in their clothes for the next day so they can wake up and be on the go. But no matter how kids get dressed, they have to stay dressed. No changing outfits a million times!
