If you’re a parent or a commuter, you will dread that alarm going off so early every morning. Life is busy these days, and that often means getting less sleep to fit it all in. Do you struggle to peel your face from the pillow when the alarm goes off? Then you need some super speedy time savers to make your getaway from the house quicker and easier. And if you’re quick enough, you might just get another fifteen minutes sleep in too!
Start your day with coffee, rather than trying to find one on the way to work. You can invest in a coffee machine to have that cup of the good stuff ready and waiting when you wake. But if you need a hard hit of caffeine, you’ll need to grind the beans fresh. Have a look at machines that are fast for your home. You can find information online or a review of the Mazzer Mini Doserless grinder at this link to help you choose the best one for you.
Once you’ve had your coffee, you’ll be feeling more alert. This means you can get all your morning things done much quicker. Grab a shower, brush your teeth, and get your hair and makeup done in half the time by being fully awake when you start. A cooler shower will mean you’ll dry quicker and spend less time under the water! Have everything laid out on your bathroom countertop ready for you the night before. Don’t spend time in the morning choosing your makeup color palette. Make that choice before bedtime!
The same goes for your wardrobe choices. Lay out your clothes in the order you’ll put them on. As soon as you’re dry, drop the towel and get dressed at super speeds. This little bit of preparation before you get into bed may even help you sleep better. You’ll be less worried about the things you have to do. Your mind will be able to relax knowing you’re organized and ready for the day ahead. We all need that when it’s going to be Monday in the morning. Best of all, you can set your alarm for a little later!
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. We need it to feel fully focused and to get rid of that horrible empty feeling in the morning. Breakfast on the go isn’t always a good idea. Perhaps you have a family, and you like to enjoy breakfast with them? You can prepare much of the breakfast table before bed. Set the plates and bowls and cutlery on the table. Pop the boxes of cereal out ready. In the morning, you just need to grab the things in the fridge, and you’re ready to enjoy.
Your purse can also be packed ready for the day. Have a dedicated makeup bag in there and a purse hairbrush. This will save you from having to run around the house grabbing all the bits from your dresser. Spend a little longer in bed in the morning with these helpful hints.
