For those of us who aren’t independently wealthy enough to enjoy the luxury of sleeping in and spending our mornings gazing upon the beauty of nature, mornings can be hectic and crazy. It’s still possible to make mornings great, even when they feel like a madhouse.
Disclaimer: I am a brand ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonald’s. All opinions are my own.
As a teacher, my mornings are often filled with preparations for daily lessons, grading, and myriad mundane tasks that must be accomplished in order for the day to run smoothly. Once a week, I also have bus duty.
I used to dread bus duty. It seemed like just one more thing to be added on top of a lot of other things.
So what can you do to make mornings great? Several years ago, I started a morning tradition of treating myself to a #busdutycoffee from McDonald’s every time I had bus duty. You can read more about it here. It was just a little something special that I could do for myself.
I now look forward to the mornings when I have bus duty. It has become a time of reflection; a time when I can enjoy the morning sunshine and weather. It is also nice to start the day by greeting the students and welcoming them to their day at school.
I have kept the tradition alive and it really helps to make even those tough mornings great.
I’m a pretty simple girl when it comes to my coffee. I like my coffee with a touch of cream and that’s it! Lot’s of people love the “fancy” coffee drinks though so I am so excited that McDonald’s has released their newMcCafé® Espresso line!
