Organise your outfits for the whole week at one go
Selecting an outfit every morning while you're running late can seem like a daunting task. It is for this reason that you should take some time out during the weekend to line up the outfits you plan to wear in the coming week. If you give them to your local laundry for ironing, you save on another 10–15 minutes every morning. Meticulous planning is all it takes to save a few hours on daily chores every day.
Gather the next day's essentials before bed
How many of you run back up to grab the car keys while going down the stairs? If you want to save time rushing around your house gathering essentials like your wallet, shoes, and charger every morning, you need to gather all your daily things in one place before going to bed. This routine will not take more than a few minutes and it will keep you from getting unnecessarily stressed when you're already late for work.
Opt for a time-saving breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and yet so many of us skip it owing to work pressure and hurried mornings. Instead of opting for a cooked meal, choose a cold breakfast that is quick to grab and healthy as well. Having a fruit salad, cereals, or yoghurt can help save precious time.
Make use of sticky notes
In addition to all the essentials you pack for your work day, there is always an important document or pen drive that you need to take along with you. Make use of sticky notes to leave reminders for yourself so that you don't have to rush back when you've already reached halfway to your office.
Make the most of your commute
If you travel by public transport like cabs or buses, use that time to eat your breakfast or do your make-up. You can even catch up on important mails so you can hit the ground running once you've set foot in office.
Follow these five easy hacks and you're sure to save time and establish a doable routine to battle hectic mornings. Make sure not to glance at your gadgets while you're running around as checking messages and emails and responding to them will only disrupt your tight schedule.
