Start Your Day Off Right-With Dinner!
Change your usual dinner menu to a breakfast meal. Prepare whatever your family likes to have for breakfast and eat it for dinner. While you are eating, pretend that it is already tomorrow morning, and talk about what you need and want to do during the day. Discuss where you will go, any big assignments or meetings you will have, and the goals you plan to achieve.
When your family makes a practice of thinking about tomorrow before it comes, you will be in a much better situation to achieve those goals you set with success. As you do this, you learn to create priorities and understand the difference between what you need and what you want.
Even when you have dinner food for dinner time, it can be a big help to plan for the next day while your family can give you advice or offer to help. Make a placemat with the days of the week on it, and write your plans for tomorrow there while you discuss them. As a bonus, your placemat of plans will be there when you sit down for breakfast tomorrow. Since your plan for the day is already ready, just review it, and then you will have time to wonder “Why Do We Call It Breakfast?”
