Do you find it hard to get back to your (family) routine in 2015?
If you find it hard to get back to your family routine, the main reason is the “time”. During holidays we tend to be less strict with our time schedule and getting back to “normal” feels difficult. Especially in the morning. Therefore getting back to our routines focusses mainly on the morning hours.
Routine is “a set of customary or unchanging and often mechanically performed activities or procedures“, therefore time and stress managment is crucial. Like with all kind of routines and schedules, it’s good for most people to have time under control. This gets obviously more difficult if more people are involved in our routine. Therfore families do well to set strict(er) rules.
In my latest post on AngloInfo about “5 tips for getting back into routine after the holidays
” I mention things like setting the clock a bit earlier in the morning, preparing things in the evening before and generally trying to be earlier in every activity that needs to be done, because it saves us precious time in the morning, or as my mother used to say:
Was du heute kannst besorgen, das verschiebe nicht auf morgen.
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today (or: A stich in time saves nine)
What do you do to make your morning or after-holiday routine feel easier?
