More often than not, mornings are a rush. Even if you’re well-rested and ready to face the day, the sheer length of your morning routine can slow you down and leave you either rushing breakfast, or skipping it altogether in a rush to get to work on time.
This is not the ideal way to start the day. Chances are you’ll still feel like you’re being rushed and hurried as you go about the rest of the day, which can put unnecessary stress on your body. Well, I say no more! Let’s see what changes you can make to your lifestyle in order to get your mornings off to the right start
Clear Your Wardrobe
The problem with having a different outfit for every occasion, is having too many options. You can spend several minutes standing in front of your closet each morning, still indecisive about what you’d like to wear. One option is to plan your outfit the night before. However, if you think you need to clear some space in the wardrobe anyway, why not consider making a capsule wardrobe to free up a significant amount of time every morning, and even before a night out. This may be a better option if your closet is full of items that you haven’t worn for years.
Clear Your Hair Products
After you jump out of the shower, wrap your hair in an absorbent towel and leave it there as you go about your morning. Before you leave the house, quickly blow dry the scalp and the ends and then run a brush through it. Don’t attempt any elaborate hairstyles; either leave it down or sweep it up into a bun, ponytail, or something you know you can do quickly.
Clear Your Product Collection
If most of your morning is spent in front of the bathroom countertop or your vanity searching for your face cream du jour, it’s time to shave precious seconds off that time. Throw away products that are expired, you haven’t used for a while, or are duplicates of something you already have. When you begin your skin care routine in the morning, you should be able to quickly pick out the product you need and get on with it.
Clear Your Makeup Drawer
Remember, you’re not dressing up for a night out. Unless it’s a very special occasion, your daily makeup routine should not be taking up more than five minutes of your time. If you take too long to do your makeup, you either need to practice your routine, or you need to clear some products out of your makeup bag. However, if you’ve already cleared out the expired products, you can speed up your mornings if you have the makeup you use daily out and ready to apply. Another way to save you time is to admit to yourself that you are not as skilled with liquid eyeliner as you think you are, and skip that step altogether.
