You’re tired. You don’t want to get up early. You’d rather sleep in for another minute or two. But if you want to get to work on time, you need to learn how to move faster in the morning.
The modern world is a fast-paced one. If you can’t keep up, you have no choice but to get up early. That’s why it’s important to develop good habits that can help you get moving quickly.
In this post, we’re going to share some tips for how to shave minutes off your morning routine so you can sleep in a little longer. Let’s get started!
Now, there are a lot of people who take a full bath in the morning, and that’s cool. But it takes a lot of time. If you want to shave, put on makeup, and do your hair, that’s a lot of stuff to pack into a short amount of time. Showering is a much faster option. You can still soap up and get clean without all the extra fluff.
Go to bed earlier
You’re not a morning person, are you? That’s okay, you’re not alone. Lots of people find it tough to get moving in the morning. But what if we told you that there was a way to move a little bit faster in the morning so you could sleep in a little bit more? It’s true! And all you have to do is go to bed a little earlier.
When you get enough sleep, your body gets the energy to move a little bit swifter in the morning. You won’t be as groggy, and you will find it easier to get ready for work. So try going to bed a little bit earlier tonight (and subsequently) and see how it works for you.
Prep your stuff the night before
It can be tough to get up and out the door when you only have a few hours of sleep. But if you’re strategic about it, you can shave a few minutes off your morning routine. One way to do this is by packing your bag and setting your outfit the night before.
That way, you’re not scrambling around in the morning trying to find your keys or your shoes. And speaking of clothes, think about wearing something comfortable and easy to slip in. You don’t want to be fussing with your clothes while you’re trying to get ready for work.
Make breakfast part of your routine
You’re in a hurry to get ready for work, but you don’t want to skip breakfast. So what can you do?
One solution is to make breakfast a part of your routine. That way, you can do it quickly and without having to think too much about it. You could try some overnight oats or a healthy smoothie, both of which are easy to prepare and portable.
If you have a little more time, you could heat some overnight pancakes. But if you’re pressed for time, you could always grab a quick breakfast sandwich on the go. No matter what you choose, just make sure you have something to fill your tummy before you check in the office.
As bonus tips before we go, try to use multi-tasking products and techniques. For example, you can use a BB cream that triples as a primer, suncream, and moisturizer or apply some hair oil while your tresses are still wet. Shower and get dressed into your work clothes immediately, and spend the rest of your time drying your hair or putting on light makeup. Cheers to extra minutes of shuteye!
