I am definitely not a morning person – It’s best if I don’t have to think, talk or make any important decisions before 9 AM. Unfortunately, life requires that most days I am out of the house and among other people by 9 AM. 🙂 I’ve implemented several things into my morning routine to make mornings as pain-free as possible. Not only do I follow my detailed morning schedule to keep me on track, I do as much ahead of time as I can. This includes making my lunch and planning my outfit at least the night before.
Something I’ve started recently is planning several days’ outfits at once. If I have time on the weekend, I’ll pull out at least 5 different outfit combos and get them ready to wear. That includes ironing some of the pieces and also trying on outfits that are new combinations or haven’t been worn in a while. I hang them on over-the-door hooks on the outside of the closet so they don’t get wrinkled while hanging. Not only does this make getting ready a breeze, it saves me from having to choose the next day’s outfit when I’m super tired at the end of a day!
I can’t plan out exactly what I’m wearing each day because our weather is still pretty unpredictable this time of year. This will be much easier in July when I know it will be hot and humid every. single. day.
This would be a great time-saving option for those of you with children. You could even hang or lay out their outfits for the week and let them choose which one they want each day, with the comfort that it will be an appropriate choice. 🙂
Anybody else struggle with functioning in the morning?
