Surviving Life When You’re Not A Morning Person

Make your mornings smoother by choosing outfits ahead of time via ComeHomeForComfort.com

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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’m with you my friend, mornings are the worst! I agree that planning out your outfits is a huge help. I found that when I created my capsule wardrobe (a wardrobe of only 33 items) that this helps out even more! It’s best for everyone that I don’t have to think too hard in the A.M. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m so not a morning person… But I’m a mom to 2 early birds.
    I lay out everyone’s clothes on Saturday for Sunday, but most other mornings we don’t have to be anywhere early, so I let the boys dress themselves. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I love planning my outfits ahead of time and find my mornings go better if I take the time to do this at night. I also try to lay out Olive’s outfit the night before so that no thinking is required early in the morning. I’m sure my closet would benefit from some ironing, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I’m terrible in the morning. I am really skilled at wasting 30 mins without even realising. The worst thing is that my other half is great in the morning – he gets up as soon as the alarm goes off and then follows his routine easily before heading out of the house 35 mins later. I’m often still not fully conscious when he leaves the house. I am going to plan my schedule as your post suggests and see if I can make things a bit easier for myself. Thanks for the tips. XXX

    1. Ruthie, I’m right there with you! I have a seriously hard time functioning in the morning – that’s why I have the routine. It keeps me from having to think and helps me stay on track during the morning. Hopefully a routine will do the same for you! I feel your pain! ๐Ÿ™‚
