So what are the secret ingredients for a less chaotic morning? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered!
Save time by preparing for your work day the previous night. Taking a shower or relaxing bath before bed could potentially save you 10 to 30 minutes alone. It’s entirely okay, to take a shower in the morning if this helps you wake up. Just remember to keep it brief, as to stay on track and remain in our 30-minute time-frame.
I remember as a kid my parents would have us iron our clothes for the entire week. At first it made no sense. But when my mom said, “don’t you always ask for 5 to 10 more minutes to sleep every morning?” did it become abundantly clear why she had us doing this. It can be a painstaking task ironing clothes in the morning with everything else that has to be done. Decrease this stress by preparing your clothes the night before.
