Here’s a practical idea that can take some friction out of your mornings. It’s actually pretty simple, but regularly done can make it easier to be gracious and kind first thing in the day (instead of grumpy).
Set up for your day the night before.
Clean the kitchen before bed and set items out for breakfast. Pick out what you will wear the next day. Set out the items you will use the first thing. Have your shopping list ready. Do whatever you need to do to streamline your actions and take as much decision-making off your morning plate as possible.
A little less friction in life makes for a little less friction in your marriage.
Try this simple idea for a week and see what it does for you and your mornings.
Before anything else, preparation is the key to success. Alexander Graham Bell
