Rise and Shine

Let's face it.Morning is not exactly the most relaxed time of the day. If you're like most kids, getting ready for school is more like a mad dash thrugh an obstacle course. You have to grab your books, wolf down your breakfast, and get out the door avoiding arguments with your parents and siblings along the way. The best approach to getting through the morning rush is to prepare the night before. Pack up your lunch and put ii in tyhe refrigerator. Leave your backpack by the front door. Lay your clothes before you go to sleep. I always do this before when I was in high school and college. Finally, set your alarm clock for a half hour earlier tahn you normally get up.

You be surprised how much you can get done in the extra half hour. You may even find a few more minutes to practice for your piano lessons before school! (That will give you time in the evening to watch that new show you been dying to check out). when your morning starts out smoothly, the rest of the day is sure to follows! and it's true.
