    Hi Karen! I find that I’m a better mom and wife when I’m able to start my day off with some quiet time in the morning. Do you have a morning routine or practice that you really enjoy?

    Morning routines are so important for autism moms!! You’re so right, Michelle. A lot of times we can just overestimate how difficult it may be, and that can hold us back. My mornings start super early, and I go through my entire routine, which includes everything from prayer and Scripture reading to preparing bottles and setting up the morning sensory bin! It looks like a lot on paper, but many of the tasks are simple. It has been a game changer. I’m a much happier and organized mom when I wake up before my boys and get the day started right! This is a great post to help other moms get the inspiration they need to start a morning routine!

    I’m glad to hear that you have normal rhythms and routines in place for your family as well! Absolutely! It’s easy for us to wait until we “feel like doing something” or “motivated” but motivation isn’t something we can simply summon. Instead, by having these mundane tasks interwoven into our regular routines, and creating new habits for ourselves we’re less likely to fall behind on a dreaded day to day tasks. I love that! Getting into the Word, and carving out time for praise and prayer is the best way to start the day! Thanks, Tiff!
