I think my body may be in hibernation mode…
It’s that time of year, when all I want to do is stay in my heavenly, warm, cozy bed for the absolute maximum amount of time each morning. So! That means I have come up with a few little strategic ways of minimizing my getting ready time. Ok, ok. So I’ve been hitting the snooze button a few times every morning and I was kind of forced to come up with these inventive time savers…
I mentally prepare my outfit for the day. A little like having my own personal stylist, only it’s completely free (because it’s me!)… But it does minimize any changes later, which is usually one of my biggest time wasters.
Skincare routine in the shower. I am actually exfoliating and cleansing my face while my hair conditioner sits and works its magic. I usually brush my teeth in the shower of a morning, too.
Multi-use products every damn day! Why use two products when you can use one? Current favorite: Les Beiges by Chanel, which not only contains SPF but I use as a (count with me now) powder, bronzer, illuminator, and eyeshadow. Every damn day.
Coffee at the Studio. Waiting until I get to the Studio to have a coffee saves me about 15 minutes at home each morning (the boiling, the grinding of beans, the washing afterwards…)
Avoid the phone. I have a new rule: look at my phone once when I first wake up to see if there are any urgent messages or emails, and to check the temperature. Then I try to avoid looking again until I’m out the door – that way I don’t fall down an Instagram black hole or start a never-ending texting conversation with my best friend. Probably equal to an extra 20 minutes of duvet time.
Do you have any special tips for saving time in the mornings?
(And is it just me, or is it definitely hibernation season?!)
