Want to maximize your beauty sleep time with some ways to get ready faster in the morning? I hate rushing around in the morning and if you’re looking to sleep in or simply streamline your morning routine, read on for 8 amazing ways to get ready faster in the morning. You’ll thank me later!
1. Pack up
Make your lunch, snacks, smoothies along with anything you take to work and pack it up together the night before. I used to have a bad habit of packing a lunch and then forgetting it because my lunch bag was in the fridge. You can avoid this by putting all your food in the fridge and leaving your lunch bag out on the counter as a visual reminder. Having all your work essentials together is one of the key ways to get ready faster in the morning.
2. Choose Clothes
Pick out an outfit or two plus accessories and shoes the night before so that you won’t be rummaging through your closet in the morning half asleep while trying on multiple pieces of clothing. If you want to be extra efficient, check the weather online so that you don’t pick out a summery ensemble and you end up running out the door and it’s raining. Be sure to give yourself options when choosing outfits so you’re covered if you’re not feeling your outfit in the morning.
3. Get It Together
Having your beauty basics all together will save a lot of time and allow you to get ready faster in the morning. Keep all your face wash, skincare items and makeup within reach so that you’re not searching for your new YSL lipstick last minute and waste time looking all over your bathroom for it. You don’t have to have everything out on the counter either; you can also devote one drawer to all your essentials so they won’t be an eyesore.
4. Shower and Style
If you can, shower and wash your hair the night before. I know some ladies prefer to shower in the morning to help them wake up, but try doing it the night before to save time. Doing the bulk of your hairstyling the night prior will also shave minutes off your morning routine and save you the trouble of washing, drying and styling your hair in the morning and avoid feeling rushed.
5. Rise and Shine
It’s really important to go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day, even on the weekends, if you want to get into a steady routine and get ready faster. We all know the importance of getting enough sleep and waking up at the same time consistently will make getting up in the morning much easier since your body is accustomed to it. This is probably one of the more difficult ways to get ready faster, but it’s worth it!
6. Makeup Shakeup
Shakeup your morning makeup routine and streamline the process to get ready faster in the morning. As soon as you wake up, wash your face and apply moisturizer and sunscreen. While the skincare products are setting, start brushing your hair or warm up any styling tools. Proceed with primer and face makeup and style hair in between applying makeup. There are also some great YouTube tutorials on how to achieve a super quick yet pretty makeup look also.
7. Eat up
Don’t forget breakfast! It’s called the most important meal of the day for a good reason. If you don’t have enough time to cook anything, grab fruit or prepare something beforehand. If you eat at work, stash some quick oatmeal in your drawers or pack a yogurt to take with you. Eating might seem like a waste of time but it’s essential to fuel your mind and body for your busy day ahead.
8. Time Yourself
You don’t have to get your stopwatch out and start sprinting around your house but be mindful of how much time you spend on certain tasks. If you want to get ready faster in the morning, give yourself a certain amount of time to do each task in your routine and once the time is up, wrap it up. You can always touch-up makeup or eat while you’re stuck in traffic or before work.
