Smart Habits Saturday: June 16

It's time again for Smart Habits Saturday, hosted by the Lazy Organizer.

I didn't do too badly on last week's habit: keep the kitchen table clear. I put a tablecloth on the table to remind me that I'd like it to always look pretty.

As of yesterday all my children are done with school for the summer. So I want to start developing this habit: Capitalize on the morning!

Although I enjoy sleeping in, I really am a morning person. If I sleep too late then I use up my best time of day! My energy starts to wane at about 11 AM and it's all downhill from there.

I know that my best, most productive days are the ones where I've gotten a jump on things by getting up, getting moving, and getting things done. If I stay in bed until Little Brother comes in and asks for help getting some breakfast, I've wasted my best time of day.


  1. Sleeping in is something I love to do, but it does make my day become less productive when I do so. Good luck this week!

  2. I'm more of a morning person also. I think you have a great habit to work on, I should do that too. Good luck to you, you can do it!!

  3. I am a morning person too. I also like being able to work in the cooler morning air. Enjoy each morning this week!

  4. My habit this week is similar and different from yours. I want to get up and have devotional time. I hope we both do well on your habits.

    Have a great week!

  5. I agree that the morning is a great time to do things and the day goes much smoother.
    good luck this week!

  6. Isn't that the truth?! I, too, find that when I am early to rise, I am healthy (well no), wealthy (not, and wise (not really), but certainly I am more patient and productive when I get things going on my terms rather than my three children starting the day without letting me get my thoughts collected first. Good luck with this habit!

  7. I love getting up early too but don't your kids wake up earlier when you get up and start doing things? That drives me crazy!

  8. "Jumping" out of bed was my first S.M.A.R.T. habit and it has made such a difference in my day. I also use the tablecloth trick and it works really well (That is, when I am quick enough to get it on before the next meal).
