Day 3 motivotional discussed getting dressed so you can act differently. I personally make different decisions during the day depending on how I am dressed. If I'm in sweats, then I am definitely not going out but going to be staying in and doing housework and things with the kids. If I am dressed, then I am more willing to get out of the house and run errands, or go somewhere fun with the kids. I know that clothing really shouldn't decide how I am going to spend my day, but it does. I used to be the type of person that was ready to go once I woke up at 6 am. I was that girl that would schedule as many 8 am classes as I could because I was a morning person. I would show up to my 8 am classes after having showered, eaten breakfast and gotten fully dressed. Many of my other classmates were still half asleep and in their PJ's. So what happened? Why do I currently not jump out of bed ready to tackle my day?? Kids and taking care of my house and family is what happened. Many times, I am working around the house until 9 or 10 pm and crawl into bed at 11 pm or later, and then up at 7 am and my day repeats its self. Who wants to jump out of bed in the morning just to do more housework?? The challenge for Day 3 is to figure out what is the biggest hurdle in getting dressed in the morning. For a long time, the first thing I would do in the morning was take a shower. Once I had babies, I got up when they got up and did not have anytime to myself, let alone time to take a shower. To tackle this hurdle, I am going to try a new morning routine.
6:30 - out of bed and exercise
6:45 - shower, get dressed make-up
7 am - Babies awake!
I know this isn't a big schedule change but I think it will help me feel better about myself and help me to start my day right.
