If you’re anything like me, you find mornings to be a struggle. I know there are morning people out there, mad props to you, but for me, that snooze button is everything. It’s there for me when I need that extra 5, 10…45 minutes of prime Zzz’s. However, with that comes a rushed morning, lack of confidence outfit, unhealthy lunch, and a forgotten important work file. Who’s with me? These past few months, I’ve been making sure this isn’t the case. I’ve prepped, planned, and packed to prepare for the work week ahead in order to save time during my morning routine.
The Plan –
Dedicate some time on Sunday evening to schedule out your outfits for the week. If I don’t pick out my outfits, I find myself spending too much time digging through the closet in the morning for a feeling of total lack of confidence in my outfit. If I don’t look good, I don’t feel good. From clothing to jewelry and shoes, I write it down. Don’t forget your favorite watch so you can keep a steady flow of your day. I’m always sporting my JORD wood watch to make sure I’m sticking to my morning routine. By planning ahead and writing down your outfits, you can go throughout the whole week feeling confident, while also snoozing in a little more in the AM.
The prep –
Dedicate your Sunday evening to meal prep. This is definitely easier said that done, I understand that. But, it’s worth every second. You don’t have to worry about packing a lunch or snacks in the morning or every night. I find that you’ll eat much healthier and save money! A healthy packed lunch and snack means less money spent on eating out, buying from the vending machine, and devouring the whole candy bowl.
The pack –
Every night before work, make sure you’ve gathered everything you need for your work day. An important file won’t do you any good left on the coffee table, put it next to your keys or in your work bag. Your morning routine will be spent focused and ready for the day if you aren’t wasting 5 minutes trying to find what you need.
