How to save time in the mornings

Give your morning routine a boost by focusing on preparation the night before.

Morning routine: How to save time

Mornings are typically known for being overwhelming, stressful and hectic, particularly if you have a whole family to get ready. However, you can change this. 

Take control of your morning by streamlining your routine and save yourself valuable minutes of sleep in the process. Try to organize whatever you can the evening before and leave just the essentials for when you wake up. This might mean packing your bag for work, washing your hair or putting the trash out – you’ll be thankful these jobs have been done when the morning rolls around.

Mornings are all about allocating your time wisely and sticking to it. Get a shower timer to ensure the temptation of the warm water doesn’t leave you behind schedule, keep your eye on the clock as you eat your breakfast and get out of the door at a reasonable time. By taking a sensible approach to timings, you can say goodbye to stressful mornings.

A revitalizing shower

Starting your day with an refreshing shower is a great way to wake up your body and mind. Try using a body wash with a fresh and revitalizing fragrance like NIVEA Care & Hibiscus Moisturizing Body Wash. Another useful tip is to brush your teeth in the shower to combine two steps in one.

The morning beauty routine

Your morning beauty and skin care regime is individual to you, but there are ways to help cut down on time. Give multi-use makeup products like lipstick and blush stains a go or, if you’re in a real rush, pop your lipstick in your bag to apply later on – there will always be opportunities!
