Wouldn’t you love more sleep? Not having to hit snooze a billion times? Sounds familiar, right? If you have to wake up early because it takes you forever to get ready, find your belongings and head out the door in the morning – you’re not alone! You know something needs to change but you can’t wake up any earlier and going to be early is never an option (unless Netflix stops running😱)… Not to worry, Profusion is here to help!
Here are 5 Profusion approved how-to’s on ways to get the most out of your morning!
We know what you’re going to say, your outfit depends on your mood and the weather, duh. Buuuut you can always add/remove a jacket from your outfit in the morning. Plus, if you’re not stressed-out looking for clothes in the morning, then your mood won’t pummel! Nothing is set in stone, you can always pick something else in the morning but this way you have a back up ready. P.S. if you make an outfit flat-lay you also get a killer ootd Instagram post 😉
- Figure out your breakfast
First, if you don’t eat breakfast you definitely should – you’ll be surprised how much less you hate mornings once you have food in you aka energy. Second, if you don’t have groceries and you’re planning on picking something up, think about what/where you want to go and what you’re going to order- this will save you SO much time which you’d otherwise waste um-ing and ah-ing. If all else fails, put some cereal in a to-go cup and head on out.
- Turn up the music
Pick a song or even a whole album that makes you super-duper happy and play it on repeat while you’re getting ready. Not a big music fan? Listen to your favorite audio book or an interesting podcast to get your brain warmed up – you’ll be so focused on listening to someone else speak (or sing), you can forget all about being tired! (thank us later😁).
- Stop hitting snooze
Believe it or not setting up multiple alarms actually makes you more tired rather than ensuring you wake up. Once you hit that snooze button, your body automatically adjusts to thinking the “snooze” sound is meant to be ignored or taken as a sign for more sleep😴. Fear not, we’re not trying to make you quit your snooze relationship cold turkey – instead try setting less alarms in the morning. You’ll train your body to wake up because it won’t have backup alarms to save you from sleeping in. Also, start keeping your alarm further away than arms reach from your bed – this guarantees you have to get up to turn it off and once you’re up and out you have zero reasons to get back into bed. Btw, make sure your alarm is loud!
- Pack your bag the night before
Last but not least – pack whatever you need for the coming day, the night before. Doing so will minimize rushing around and gives you time to do other things instead, like eat breakfast or do your makeup! Whether or not you wear makeup or have any kind of beauty routine in the morning, it’s always better to have cosmetics products in one place; just in case. Try keeping your everyday essentials in a cosmetic bag so you know exactly where to head in the morning. If doing your makeup is essential, take out all the products you need the night before and place them in the order you use them. Or, if you’re highly skilled in doing your makeup on-the-go, put the products in a makeup bag and take them with you! P.S. do not just throw them in your handbag/ backpack etc. as things will break and smear and no one wants the inside of their bag/their belongings to look like a rainbow exploded inside it.
