1. Don’t skip breakfast
If you often skip breakfast, you should always take something nutritious to eat on your commute or pack a sandwich to eat later in the office. Skipping breakfast is a bad thing because you need to eat something healthy to give your brainpower and jumpstart your metabolism. You can cook oatmeal or make healthy smoothies the night before or take yogurt and fruit for breakfast on the go.
2. Prepare the night before
Another way to streamline your mornings is to prepare everything the night before. Take a shower, get your outfit and your shoes ready, and get some food or snacks ready to go for the next morning. In this way, you will have more free time in the morning!
3. Prepare your bag
If you are always looking for your wallet, phone, keys, and other essential things, make a habit to keep these things visible or organized in your bag so you do not spend your time looking for them. Preparing your bag is an easy way to keep items organized when you switch purses or simply need some compartments to keep all essential things together!
4. Multitask your makeup routine
Another way to streamline your morning routine is to multitask while you apply your makeup. Check out your eyebrows to see if they need a trim, while you are waiting for your moisturizer to dry. While you are waiting for your foundation to set, start styling your hair. Don’t sit and wait, and you can easily streamline your makeup routine!
5. Don’t experiment
Morning is not the perfect time to experiment with complicated outfits, styling tools, or new makeup, because you don’t have time to fix any styling or makeup mishaps. Experimenting is great, but make it when you have more time!
6. Care for hair
If you style your hair for a very long time in the morning, why not wash and blow-dry your hair at night? In the morning, just spritz your hair with some water and use an anti-frizz product to smooth things out. If your hair is still smooth after a night’s sleep, then style it with hot tools, braid, or put it in a bun.
7. Have backups on hand
Having backups on hand is another way to streamline your morning routine. If the outfit you prepared the night before doesn’t work out, keep some outfits ready so that you are not caught unprepared. Dresses allow you to look pretty, professional, and polished in a matter of minutes!
8. Stay organized
One of the easiest ways to get ready faster is to be organized. Don’t waste your time going from room to room gathering your things. Keep all essential things together so they are easy to access and you won’t waste your precious time looking for products! Keep your special occasion makeup separate from your everyday makeup.
