A GR8 Way to Start the Day – Making Mornings Matter

Make no mistake about it, mornings matter.

I mean they reeeeaaalllly matter.

Your first few minutes of the day can set the tone for the entire day, so why not set  your thoughts and actions up for a GR8 Day (that’s my licence plate number, by the way!).

By pre-loading,  we can all but eliminate the nasty spiral of events that sometimes occur in the morn, i.e. ; the Monday morning dread, the stubbed toe on the bed, the dog throwing up, the kids fighting over the bathroom…

OK while we can’t control a lot of these things, we can still set ourselves up for morning success!

Start here:

  1. set alarm for 7 minutes early – just 7, you can do that, now you will not be rushing.
  2. do not let the snooze alarm win – no pressing it seven times!
  3. take a couple of minutes to think about what you have to look forward to that day – even if its just  going to work.
  4. set your intention to have a GR8 DAY: little things won’t bother me, the world is conspiring in my favor,
  5. take a couple of minutes to stretch – think about how your dog does this every morning, its yummy.
  6. use one minute to be grateful for all the blessings you have – the bed, the good nights sleep, your companion in life etc.
  7. have a good breakfast – sit down and eat and enjoy it!

Not that I usually use this BLOG to share recipes, but this is soooo delish that I have to share.  It’s the perfect Sunday morning treat – yummy and easy!
German Apple  Pancakes

Melt 2 TBSP butter in pie plate, sprinkle 2 TBSP brown sugar & 1/4 Tsp cinnamon in a pie plate over butter.  Slice thin peeled apple and arrange nicely over brown sugar.

Combine 2 eggs, 1/2 c. milk, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp vanilla  and pour over apples.

Bake at 400 degrees for 35-30 minutes until puffy and golden.

Immediately loosen edges and turn upsidedown on plate.

Oh my gosh, with a breakfast like that, how can you not  have a GR8 DAY?

I have to go now and make one!  Mmmmmmmmmmm.

Enjoy, enjoy!
