Tips for Getting Ready Quicker in the Morning

Energy in the morning is sometimes so hard to come by. What could be better than a few extra minutes of sleep after the first time your alarm goes off? While it isn't ideal to hit snooze over and over again sometimes you just can't help it and you fall behind schedule. Those days are the ones when you'll be most thankful to know how to get ready quicker in the morning.

While morning routines vary for most people the major goals and tasks to be accomplished remain the same. So how do you speed those up? I've got you covered with some quick tips below that will have you looking your best while being on time!

And if you're looking to really change things up I have a post all about Becoming a Morning Person if you're interested.

1. Prepare the night before.
Lay out your clothes and pack your bags the night before so that if you are left scrambling the next morning those are already taken care of. Packing your bag will ensure that nothing gets left behind and already picking out an outfit will ensure that you don't stand in your closet complaining that you don't have anything to wear when in reality you don't have the time to envision.

2. Multitask.
Eat breakfast while putting on your makeup if you're in a big hurry!

3. Streamline your Makeup Routine.
Speaking of makeup, have a quick fool proof routine that you can resort to without sacrificing an effort. I usually do the same thing for make up every morning and it doesn't tend to take more than 5 or 6 minutes so be sure you know what you can eliminate when you're in a hurry.

4. Shower the Night Before.
If you're in a real time crunch before heading out the door in the morning chances are the time you allotted for your morning shower may get sacrificed. Don't sacrifice cleanliness and instead shower the night before. If it is imperative that you skip the shower be sure to use a bit of dry shampoo to liven up your hair. 

5. Do your Hair the Night Before.
Sleeping on a hair style can make it look more natural and allow you quite a bit of extra shut eye. If this means blow drying it after you shower then spend that couple of extra minutes at night instead of attempting damage control the following morning because you slept on it sopping wet. Also knowing how to perfect a ponytail can be a real game changer when you're running behind.

6. Avoid Checking your Phone.
This may be the biggest time waster in the morning. I promise those instagrams you missed will still be there when you check later on but avoid social media stalking at all costs when you're in a hurry.

7. Check your Schedule the Night Before.
Being prepared for the day to come the night before is such a satisfying feeling and will help you feel relatively relaxed when you're rushing around to get out the door. You won't miss anything because you were able to check it before you felt frenzied!

What are your best tips, share them below!


  1. I am so bad for checking my phone in the morning. I always think oh it'll just take a minute, but the 5 minutes I spend looking at facebook could be spent eating breakfast haha.

    I should keep all these tips in mind :)

  2. These are great tips that I should totally practice more!! I have the same makeup routine every morning. My biggest problem is when I decide to wear eye shadow. That takes forever. Have a great week!

  3. I'm definitely one of those prep the night before kind of gals. (; It makes all the difference! Plus having a go to hair style for when you can't quite perfect your hair is key.

  4. These are so great! Especially avoiding social media in the morning.
