Are you one of those people who finds it a bit difficult to get going in the morning and who has trouble getting everything done by the time you must leave the house? If so then it is a good idea to try out these four simple tips that help you get ready faster, making sure that you start the day with a smile on your face.
1. Get Straight Up
Try to ensure that you don’t keep hitting that snooze button in the morning by placing your alarm clock somewhere that requires you to get up from the bed.
This can end up putting you in a much better mood as well because you are guaranteed to wake up on time and you won’t have to start rushing through your morning routine.
Another great tip for an instant waking up is to prepare a glass of water on the nightstand that you can drink when you wake up. It will help wake up your body and give you some energy.
2. Skip The Shower
You don’t need to go for a morning shower if you want to use that time for either sleeping longer or doing something more productive. It can work just as well to have a shower in the evening and use dry shampoo in the morning, for instance.
Elle magazine shows a few good products that you can use in the morning to avoid having to wash the hair. Perhaps you want to have a quick shower without washing the hair, which can also save a few minutes in the morning.
3. Prepare Breakfast Items
It is really important to eat a good healthy breakfast in the morning but you also don’t want to be preparing for one for 30 minutes. Thus it is a good idea to prepare it all in advance.
For example, make a good berry smoothie the night before and then drink it while you are getting ready. This will give you a lot of good vitamins to get you ready for the day ahead and won’t take up a lot of your time. You can also opt for some quick and healthy options like yoghurt and muesli, which won’t take long to prepare either.
4. Prepare Your Clothes The Previous Night
It will save you a lot of time if you also prepare your clothes the previous night. This way you know what to wear and you won’t be staring at your wardrobe for five minutes trying to think this in the morning. It also saves you the stress of trying to make sure your clothes are clean and ironed.
Make sure you also get your accessories ready. For example, if you are looking for your pins and accessories for hijabs in the morning you can lose a lot of time. So make sure you organise your pins and other pieces of jewellery well to make it easy to find them in the morning. If you are looking for new pins you can check out online retailers like Aab Collection.
The above tips can guarantee your morning will be hassle free and you will get yourself ready in no time.
