I know that many of you can relate to this on a Monday morning (or any morning for that matter). Today I thought I would share some simple tips that can make your mornings less hectic and stressful. That way you can actually enjoy your coffee in the mornings and go to work not feeling like a hot mess.
- First if your like me you can’t just jump out of bed and start the day. I always play on my phone for about 15 minutes. I need some time in the morning to actually wake up before I get out of bed. I will typically set my alarm clock 10-15 minutes before I want to start getting ready. That way I can play on my phone, have time to wake up (not in a bad mood lol) and still be on time.
- Next is makeup, there are some day I want a full face of makeup or I don’t want to wear makeup at all. You need to set a simple makeup routine that you know you can do no matter what outfit you are wearing, or how tired you are. For me I will typically do a BB cream, concealer, bronzer, mascara and lip gloss if I’m in a hurry. It’s easy for me and doesn’t take much time but I still look put together. A “five minute face” will vary for everybody, it’s important to find what works for you and stick to it.
- This tip you’ve herd a million times, your parents have told you and know you should be doing it but probably don’t, and it’s to pick your outfit the night before. This seriously saves me so much time in the mornings and if I don’t do this there is a 90% chance I will be late because I don’t know what to wear. Even if you are too tired to pick something out the night before, look and see if you have at least one put together outfit in your closet. If you have at least one complete outfit, you can throw that on in the morning and not stress trying to find a shirt that is probably in the dirty pile ready to be washed.
- Lastly you already know breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Even if you don’t like eating in the mornings grab a granola bar or something that you can throw in your purse to eat on the go. If you don’t take something with you to eat, chances are that you are going to be starving for lunch and it will temp you to just eat whatever you find. Typically that leads to eating foods that aren’t good for you, or it can lead to overeating at lunch and then you feel horrible the rest of the day. This is something that too many people ignore.
I hope these tips helped you a little bit! If you have any other tips that you think I should be doing let me know in the comments. I hope you lovelies have a great day.
