Start your mornings like a 1950’s housewife. This 1950’s housewife morning routine will have you feeling productive all day long.
I find a morning routine to be essential to a good and productive day. I like to re-think mine a couple of times a year just to make sure it’s still working for me.
I also like to read about other people’s morning routines to see if there are things I can do to improve mine. One of my favorite morning routine resources that I use over and over again is Make Over Your Mornings. It’s a very informative course with wonderful tips and it’s not time-consuming at all.
Lately, my morning routine has become pretty lazy and less of a routine and more of just barely getting by. I’m finding myself feeling overwhelmed again and not getting to everything I’d like to do each day.
In addition to doing a bit of a refresher with Make Over Your Mornings, I thought I’d do a bit of research on what morning routines looked like for 1950’s housewives.
There isn’t a lot of info out there that I could find but I pieced together things I’ve seen and read. Of course, like now everyone had a different routine. This is just a routine that would be similar to a lot of housewives’ morning routines.
