September Habit #5 Procrastination Fog

Dear FlyLady,

So normally I do pretty good at my bedtime routine especially after having a DD in January.

However last night I was so tired after work and meeting friends for supper I decided to rest my eyes while laying on the couch for just a few minutes because they just wouldn’t stay open. When I finally decided after an hour of “resting my eyes” that it was time to actually go to bed, I told myself that I was too tired to get things ready for the next day-getting my clothes laid out, my DD’s diaper bag re-filled and set for the babysitters, etc. I would just get up a few minutes earlier and do this!

YOU WERE RIGHT on how important it is to do a nightly routine!!!

I for sure learned my lesson the hard way of skipping my nightly routine-of course I couldn’t get up early, but even stayed in bed a few minutes extra, I was running around trying to get things ready, forgot that I had put my keys in the diaper bag when we went out to dinner so didn’t have them when I got to work (I walk to work) and the rest of the day was hurried and felt very un-organized because I woke up all hurried.

After a full day of rushing around feeling like I am even still behind from yesterday, you got it I am doing my nightly routine tonight and every night from now on!!

Thank you so much for all the encouragement and tips to keep us going!

Rebecca here: This month we are focusing on the before bed routine.

Part of this routine is gathering up everything you need for the following day and putting it in one place. This place is your launch pad. You will be able to grab and go!

Where is your place? Do you have a bag? A water bottle or your office in a bag?
