Getting the kids ready and out the door every day is tough and something we are working on making less stressful. Ikea totally gets it and has solutions to make mornings better. I’m so excited to be partnering with them for this sponsored post.
IKEA conducted a recent survey about Americans’ morning habits.
Not surprisingly, In the results, 72 percent of the respondents said that a stressful morning affected the rest of their day, and three in four people do not have a regular weekday morning routine. I totally agree. If we have a smooth morning the rest of the day seems to follow. If we have a difficult morning the rest of the day seems to be more difficult than it should be. Since a good day starts at home, I’m working with IKEA on a new program called “First :59,” which is built to share ideas, centered around common morning routines and key areas of the home where we get ready, that help people make most out of the first hour of their day.
I’m so excited about First :59 because I know how important that time can be to starting the day off right!
IKEA asked me to identify some challenges my family and I have in our morning routines, and I have worked with the IKEA First :59 panelists to develop a solution that will help make the First :59 minutes of our day a little easier.
If you have kids you know that getting them ready and out the door on time can be a challenge.
The first hour of your day can be challenging, hectic and stressful. IKEA wants to help people better their mornings by offering resources to streamline and maximize those first 59 minutes after the alarm rings and that’s why they came up with the “First :59” program.
We all have individual needs when it comes to our morning routines and your morning starts so much better when you can find the things you need, quickly and easily. You can get out the door faster, spend more time with the kids, enjoy an extra cup of coffee, etc. Bedrooms and bathrooms in particular, are where good days start where people get ready every morning.
IKEA understands how people live, and has solutions to help you make the most of these important spaces.
Ikea found that 49% of adults over 35 that get stressed in the morning identified getting kids prepared for the day causes the most stress. I totally agree. One of the biggest issues we have is clothes. Our little one insists on picking out her own clothes, but she often takes forever and her clean clothes end up in a big pile by the time she is done looking through them. We don’t have any system in place and we need one. We need a way to cut down on the time and chaos that comes from picking out her clothes each morning.
If this problem was solved all of our lives would be so much better!
You can join the conversation and share your questions or your own morning routine suggestions on social media with the hashtag #First59.
You can also go to www.First59.com for tips, product suggestions and more on the program.
After visiting the First :59 website I was so inspired to solve so many of our morning issues. I loved all of the panelists ideas and suggestions and I’ll be back soon to share the solution that we are doing to solve our morning clothes mess. I can’t wait till you see the outcome. It’s pretty cool and has made our mornings so much better!
