After five years of working in the marketing and advertising field, in New York City no less, you'll know that life moves pretty fast on my end. There's always something to do in a city that stops for no one. Add in blogging, workouts + training runs, and outings to keep my social life alive, and my schedule gets jam packed. Literally, every minute gets taken up which makes every second count.
1. Shower the Night Before
Easily shave off a good 20-40 minutes in the morning by rinsing the day away the night before. Of course, this might be harder to do in summer (cause you know... heat) but it's definitely one of my top time-saving hacks. Not only that, but you can relax and not rush through your shower routine if you have one. PLUS, you get more time to sleep in.
2. Pick Your Outfit the Night Before
I actually take this a bit further and assemble all my looks on a Sunday prior to my week and take into account the weather, important meetings, and blogger breakfasts/cocktail hours. But, not everyone is as insane as me so I suggest looking at the weather and taking note of anything happening the next day and pulling together an outfit. It's pretty easy to lay one out (think: shoes, pants, tops, and a few accessories) and you can try it on the night before to see how you're feeling. 9 times out of 10, I'm pretty content with my chosen look.
3. The Night Before Check Your Schedule and Pack Accordingly
Got a doctor's appointment? Pack your insurance cards. Got a blog shoot for a few outfit looks? Finalize and pack your looks and props needed. Got a fitness class in the morning? Pack your gym gear and water bottle. Are you seeing the pattern yet? And no need to fret if you don't own an organizer, the easiest (and free) way to keep track of all of your engagements is on Google Calendar. Mine is updated frequently and is the backbone of my busy life.
4. Shorten Your Makeup Routine
I love makeup as much as the next beauty junkie but there is a place and a time for the extended contouring routine. During the work week, I keep my routine down to a science. Instead of foundation, concealer, contouring, and eyeshadow - I use a CC cream. Add in a swipe of bronzer and blush and brow gel and I'm ready to get my tush out the door. Add in mascara if you like, but I abstain from layering it on until I leave work for an event (or before an important meeting). It takes less than 10 minutes and has me looking fresh-faced for the rest of my day.
5. Simplify Your Vitamins with A Yummy Multivitamin
There's a vitamin for literally everything nowadays but I like to keep it simple and easy as I cover my vita-essentials. Centrum® MultiGummies® is a great-tasting, easy-to-take multivitamin supplement. Another reason I prefer them is that Centrum® MultiGummies® contain three natural flavors: Berry, Cherry, and Orange. In case you wondering, these multi-benefit multivitamins include 100% or more of essential nutrients, Vitamins B12, D, and E.
