Whether it’s preparing what you’re going to wear the next day or your packed lunch, preparation is key to a smooth and stress-free morning routine. Don’t find yourself short of time due to lack of planning.
Mornings are typically known for being overwhelming, stressful and hectic, particularly if you have a whole family to get ready. However, this doesn’t need to be the case.
Take control of your morning by streamlining your routine and save yourself valuable minutes of sleep in the process. Try to organise whatever you can the evening before and leave just the essentials for when you wake up. This might mean packing your bag for work, washing your hair or putting the bins out – you’ll be thankful these jobs have been done when the morning rolls around.
Mornings are all about allocating your time wisely and sticking to it. Get a shower timer to ensure the temptation of the warm water doesn’t leave you behind schedule, keep your eye on the clock as you eat your breakfast and get out of the door at a reasonable time. Taking a sensible approach to timings will mean you can say goodbye to stressful mornings.
Use a fast-absorbing moisturiser like NIVEA Express Hydration Body Lotion so that you can get dressed in seconds and carry on with your routine.
