1. Style your hair the night before
There’s no bigger time-suck than washing, drying and hot-tonging your hair in the mornings. Save precious minutes by going to bed with freshly washed hair, then in the morning just put a curling iron to your hair to fix up the front and smooth down the rest with a styling cream.
2. Prep ahead
If you struggle to find time to eat a healthy breakfast in the AM, plan ahead to save yourself time and to help avoid spontaneous choices that are made under pressure. On days when you need a nutritious option on the go, bring UP&GO™ blends with you, which fuel you with low GI energy* to kick start your day.
3. Lay out your outfit
Trying to locate clean leggings for your lunchtime run and trying to decide which shoes match your dress will make you late and stressed. Do what you can the night before to get your clothes ready, including ironing and it’ll make things easier in the morning.
4. Stop checking your phone
It’s easy to get side-tracked by screen time before you even leave the house, and before you know it you’ve wasted 20 minutes of precious morning time. Try recharging your phone in the kitchen overnight if you tend to look at it first thing in the morning, and wake yourself up with an old-fashioned alarm clock instead.
5. Keep your space organised
‘A place for everything and everything in its place’ is a good rule to live by at home. You can have fun keeping things together and neatly stored, buy some inexpensive pretty storage boxes and containers to organise your make-up and hair ties and a cute bowl to keep your keys and purse so you don’t need to search for them each morning. In your closet, keep your exercise clothes in one section and your work clothes in another. Small tricks like this make your mornings run much smoother.
