This year many of us are tackling another semester of at home online school. Today I am sharing my must-have for back to school needs, for YOU! Back to school for mom means comfort, organization, and self-care.
When I think of back to school, I think re-learning my school day’s morning routine. This means I have to be ready before the day goes into full-court press academics and endless snacks and lunches.
This also means my evening routine has to be rock-solid so I can manage all the endless details of my family’s day-to-day lives with including learning online academics or a mixed day of both online and on-site. The thing with this COVID- schooling time in our lives, it changes, frequently. We have to be ready for anything!
This post will include the favorite items for my back-to-school mom’s life for planning and my morning routine.

Good Morning Busy Mom
Listed below are my must-haves for my morning routine! This does not include my makeup, I use LimeLife! Love it.
Coffee before the things. Because this momma needs her coffee first thing! I love my coffee mug collection. My favorite is a Target much that says, “This Call For A Happy Dance!
My second favorite is “Good Morning Sunshine”. Find it here.
Good morning Plank, Exercise, and Meditation
Every morning I do my Leslie Sansone DVD or online program. I just love it.
Right before I exercise, I assume the plank on a cushy yoga mat for as long as I can, and then do some mindful meditation with the Headspace App on my phone.
Then I get ready for the day with a quick shower using an uplifting body wash that gives me scented energy!
And now my go-to-tool for planning! I buy dozens of planning tools, but this one is hands down my favorite of all time. It has a daily page that rocks!
The daily page includes schedule by the hour, top three Todos, a quote for motivation, a detail area for tasks, a section called Tonight for planning dinner or outings, and a spot for daily gratitude. I use the space at the top to keep track of a goal I am working on, this month it is planking which I intend to do forever! I feel so much stronger! Sometimes, simple paper planners and an amazing erasable grape purple pen are just what you need to get things done!
What are your must-haves in the morning? I would love to learn about your routine in the comments below!
