I have two ideas about this. There are seasons of motherhood when we just need to rest and not push ourselves. Seasons like when you have a newborn, are in the middle of a move, or other big life change. Sometimes we just need to let ourselves rest, get through the day keeping the kids alive and not worry about improving our morning routines.
BUT for the rest of the time, we need to just DO IT! It’s not easy to get up early. It’s not easy to workout first thing in the morning. It’s not easy to stay organized and keep up a good routine when you have kids. But sometimes we just need to stop making excuses and do. the. thing!
