What kind of morning person are you? Do you like to get up, stretch, have breakfast first, and then go for a nice run?
Or are you more of a person who jumps on the phone immediately and starts responding to emails like there is no tomorrow?
For many professionals, having an easygoing, stress-free, and productive morning is a nightmare, especially after Covid reality that forced many to combine their home and working space.
For these and many other reasons, getting somewhere on time feels like a constant battle.
To help you have a more peaceful day, we have selected the best ways how you can save time in the morning.
But… First Coffee
How do you like your coffee? You may be surprised to hear this but if you would only choose to make your coffee the night before you could save up to 20-minuets in the morning.
If you love Americano or any other warm drink, you may think about implementing cold brew coffee into your morning routine as this coffee may be prepared the night before.
Plus, did you know that cold brew coffee may be easier on your stomach than hot coffee?
Pack Your Bag
Sounds so simple, right? Know that the biggest disturbance comes with the smallest steps.
If you decide to pack your bag the night before, you will start the morning fresh and ready to go.
If you decide otherwise, you may end up scrambling through your room, house, and other bags to find what you need.
To avoid this unnecessary stress, you should think about packing your bag the night before.
Simple moves can bring us the most. Think about preparing your coffee a night before, packing your bed a night before, or making lunch a day before will all result in a more peaceful and easy-going morning and day.
Preparing lunch the night before for yourself and others, instead of going out to lunch can save you up to $1,000 per year.
Not only that your stomach will love this decision, but your wallet as well…
Pick Your Outfit
Do not complicate yourself when it comes to dressing. If you are really into fashion then you know exactly how much time you need to get ready.
Otherwise, you should keep it simple and plan your outfit for the night before.
Picking your outfit on time will cut down a significant amount of preparation for the day if you wake up knowing what you will wear that day.
You should check the next day’s forecast to get the maximum out of this step.
This will help you not only choose what to wear the day before but will also help you plan your commute.
For example, if you know that there will be rain or snow, you know that you should go out the door sooner than usual.
Last But Not Least…
Get to bed at the same time every night.
A strict sleeping schedule will help you balance your internal clock and help you feel more focused and refreshed in the morning.
