For some people, staying organized and sticking to a schedule is a piece of cake. Waking up on time and having everything ready to go five minutes early is no problem. If that doesn’t apply to you, then it may be time to create a morning routine that is more organized and less stressful! Having a stress-free morning is (usually) due to an organized house and preparation the night before. The experts at Closet and Storage Concepts in Charlotte, North Carolina share their tips for creating a stress-free morning routine!
Pick Out Your Clothes Ahead of Time
Picking out something to wear doesn’t sound like a hard task, but it can take more time and thought when you’re trying to dress nicely for work. Instead of trashing the closet because you’re late and trying to find the last clean pair of dress pants, do all of this the night before. It’s important to keep the closet organized and have a place for everything so that an outfit can be put together easily. Put a hook on the door to hang up an outfit for the next day or install a valet rod in your custom closet, to make getting dressed for work in the morning quick and easy.
Keep the House Clean
Spending an extra ten minutes tidying up the night before will make everything easier the next day. Looking for papers under a messy desk or trying to cook breakfast with dishes in the sink can be stressful. Closet and Storage Concepts of North Carolina has many different storage options for all rooms of the house to keep everything organized and out of the way.
Have an Easy Breakfast Option
There are many different breakfast meals that can be made ahead of time. Mini quiches, overnight oats, or breakfast sandwiches are all great options! Making breakfast ahead of time can make the whole week feel less stressful. If you don’t have the time or don’t want to do this, make sure that the fridge is stocked with options for an easy breakfast that everyone will like.
Make Lunches the Night Before
Frantically putting a lunch together in the morning is never a good idea. Making lunch for yourself or the entire family isn’t usually something that can be done in five minutes. Prepare all lunches and snacks the night before so that there is no stress in the morning.
Prep Your Caffeine
Whether you’re a coffee or tea drinker, make sure that everything is ready to go the night before. Having a to-go cup cleaned and coffee in the pot will save you a few minutes in the morning.
Don’t Save Tasks for the Morning
The day that you decide to print a school report or pay a bill in the morning will inevitably be the day that the printer is having issues. Problems can come up and responsibilities can take longer than expected, so try to get everything done the night before if possible.
