From years of studying people’s schedules, I know that mornings can be magical for people with careers, families, and big personal ambitions. This is often time you can have for yourself before everything else needs to happen — so it’s a great time to exercise, read ambitiously, work on that novel, etc.
Of course, not everyone is a morning person! Longtime listeners of the Best of Both Worlds podcast know that Sarah has an elaborate morning routine that starts around 4:45 a.m. I…do not. But whether you’re like Sarah or me (or something in between), it’s helpful to think through your mornings, and take steps to start the day right.
In this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, we discuss our AM routines, plus the variations for weekends and other scenarios. We discuss some common morning challenges, such as early waking babies or super-early Zoom meetings, and how these can be taken in stride.
In the Q&A we answer a listener question on transitions — what’s the best way to handle the long transition times that inevitably occur with multiple young kids? Getting three kids into car seats definitely takes time!
Please give the episode a listen, and as always, we welcome ratings and reviews. Listener note: The “E” rating we suddenly got is a total mistake — this is being changed through Apple podcasts. Best of Both Worlds has and always has been “clean” — no explicit language or content you could not listen to with a child in the car. This should be rectified shortly 🙂
