You’re a busy woman and the need to get up and out in the morning. There are kids to get to school, partners to drop at the train station and then there’s you. Often you’re the very last person you think about in the chaos of the morning rush, but you still need to be out of the door, looking presentable and off to work.
It’s not easy to stay ahead of the game when you’ve got so much to think about but in this blog, we take a look at how to get your morning routine down pat and some helpful tips to get you looking and feeling great.
The Night Before
That intention is always there but you never quite make it happen. Now, is the time to move that intent into the action zone. Create a list if it helps, but make the night before your friend, a time that works for you and helps make the next day an awful lot easier.
Think food prep. Can you get packed lunches done now, ready to grab and go in the morning? If you haven’t already got one, think about getting a slow cooker. Do minimal prep the night before and throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning to have dinner ready when you walk in the door the next evening.
After food comes clothes. Have everyone in your household get into the habit of preparing their clothes and uniforms for the next day. Get them into the routine of putting dirty clothes into the laundry basket and generally carrying out the tasks that are going to make the life of the adults in your house an awful lot easier.
As mentioned up post, as the go to fixer and sorter-outer of clothes, children, hair and school books your time in the mornings is often very limited. You still want to look and feel great when you go to work so consider getting a routine in place that gives you that freedom.
If you do wear makeup, find products that give you the results you need, quickly. You don’t have time to spend creating a look that takes hours so find modern solutions such as Dermacol full coverage foundation that negates the need to use a separate cover up product.
You don’t have to compromise on style but do find a hairstyle that not only looks and feels great but is low maintenance as well. Talk to your hairdresser about products to help achieve your look in seconds and invest in dry shampoo that not only makes your hair look clean but gives it an added boost of volume. Perfect for those with thinner, fine or limp hair.
You’re already running the household, all that’s needed are a few little changes that are going to give you an easier life and be able to give you a better start on those weekday mornings. Find time to put yourself first every now and again and those mornings are going to go a whole lot easier.
