Such a long title, but such an important post. At least I feel quite calmed down, just by typing it up. Knowing you have five steps that will make those mornings kind of okay, even though you are stressed out of your mind. Here are five tips that can help you when you’re short on time in the morning.
Yes, I know, you’re short on time – but that also means that you have overslept and are feeling quite tired. Jump in the shover for a couple of minutes, to wash the sleep away. I mean that physically as well as mentally.
2. Have breakfast
Anything, if it’s just an apple or some cereal, will help you turn this stressful start into a good day. You need food, so if your choice is between food and caffeine I would suggest opting for the latter.
3. Comfortable attire
If you’re not the type of person who lays out your outfit the night before (I am, and it saves a lot of time and energy for these kind of days), go for something comfortable. This does not mean sweats, but a sweater you know you’ll feel cozy and relaxed in. This is also an option for you if you are the type of person who plan outfits, but the chosen outfit feels to tight/harsh/cold or alike. You’re stressed out, make yourself comfortable.
4. A bare beauty minimum
Skip all the beauty steps you can. If you have time for moisturizer, blush, mascara and lipstick, that’s all you need. You can also save this part for the journey to work or school, if you travel by bus, train or subway. This also goes for hair, a top knot or pony tail is your best friend.
5. Apologize and move on
If you’re like me, then being late gives you major anxiety. If you end up being late because of you shortage of time, then just apologize and move on with your day. Most likely your classmates or co-workers will have forgotten about it at the end of the meeting or class, so you should try to forget it too. I know it’s hard, but when you get to where you’re suppose to be, you can pretend like this wasn’t one of those mornings.
