5 ways to save time in the morning by doing a few simple tasks the night before including using AVEENO® products to prepare for a busy day & week.
Mornings can be rough, especially if you are not a morning person.
I must admit, I am a morning person.
I might be a little tired, but once I am awake I can go full force into the day.
That being said, I grew up with a sister that was not a morning person & my husband is also not a morning person.
A little after we got married 5 years ago I overheard my sister & husband discussing how I wake up & immediately start talking. My sister advised to just let me talk, she said she had grown up with it & learned how to tune it out.
Since then I have tried to be a little bit more courteous with my early morning ramblings. I love my husband & I want him to have pleasant mornings too!
And while I’ve always enjoyed mornings because I am a morning person, I’ve not always been organized in the morning. Over the years I’ve worked on being more prepared the night before in order to be able to sleep in a little bit more & save time in the morning.
Because let’s face it, the more you accomplish the night before to prepare for a busy day, or a busy week, the less stressed you will be that day.
So today I’m sharing 5 ways to save time in the morning so that you can enjoy a little more beauty sleep & wake up refreshed, prepared, & ready to start your day!
1. Shower & Shave at Night
This one is a huge time saver!
I know some people like to shower in the morning, but let me share with you why I shower at night.
For one, you clean away all the dirt, germs, & allergens from the day. And being someone with many allergies, both seasonal & animal related, night time showers are a must. Second, I get to relax, take my time, & enjoy my AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash, which is fragrance-free, gentle on sensitive skin, hypoallergenic, dye-free, & soap-free, with soft music playing in the background.
Another thing that I like to do is to shave at night using AVEENO® POSITIVELY SMOOTH® Shave Gel. This specially formulated shave gel helps you shave less often & helps prevent shaving irritation, so your skin stays softer & smoother for longer. Plus it is gentle enough for even sensitive skin. Just be sure to follow the directions for use on the packaging exactly.
So showering & shaving at night is a huge morning time saver!
2. Decide on Your Wardrobe
Choosing your outfit the night before is a great way to save time.
Checking the weather the night before is key to ensuring that you are dressed appropriately for any kind of weather.
And this way you have your outfit, shoes, purse, & accessories all matched up for the day & you don’t have to waste time searching through your laundry basket (let’s face it, we all do it) looking for a key piece to complete your outfit.
3. Prep Your Meals
Being hangry is real.
If I don’t eat, I’m not the most pleasant person to be around. Planning & prepping your breakfast (& lunch) the night before is a huge way to save time & keep yourself from getting hungry.
Plus when you plan your meals you often eat better & healthier. So it’s a win all the way around!
4. All in One Location
I like to keep everything in one key location.
For example, clothing for the next day is set at the foot of the bed or on a chair. I keep food all in a bag on the counter or in the fridge. Shoes, purse, & keys near the door for a quick grab & go.
You don’t have to worry about wasting time hunting items down if it’s all in one central location!
5. Prepare for the Unexpected
Let’s say you take a shower at night, but decide to hop in the shower in the morning to wake yourself up, but once in the shower, you realize you are all out of body cleanser! A good way to make sure that you never run out is to always keep two on hand.
So by keeping two bottles of AVEENO® Skin Relief Body Wash, deodorant, or your favorite lipstick on hand you never have to worry about running out & being without! I stocked up on my AVEENO® products at Walmart along with the cute little vine featured in these pictures.
