This week I tackled the 3-ways you can make mornings faster and less stressful. Let's get to it!
1) CLEAN OUT YOUR CLOSET! You can learn more in this podcast and in this blog post, so I'll just get to the benefits of this life altering exercise that I do routinely once a season. It will decrease the eye clutter in your closet and decrease the amount of clothing you have to sift through in your mind before you land on something the fits, feels good, looks good.
2) LEARN TO SHOP! Shopping might not be your jam and I talk about that in this podcast and this blog post (and even teach you how to shop like a PRO in this e-course), but I urge you to get out and at least try things on before you commit to shapes and colors bought online. I get into so many closets every year and see things with tags on them and ask, "What's this about?!" Why are these items bought if they aren't being worn?! Because when they come in the mail you are far less likely to return them if they don't quite fit or aren't exactly what you thought they'd be - and companies bank on this fact. So demand more from your purchases. I go into far more detail in my e-course, but items should check ALL of these boxes: fit, shape, color, comfort, budget, and buddy (all items need a buddy in your closet).
3) PLAN YOUR OUTFIT THE NIGHT BEFORE! I can't tell you how many rushed mornings I've had trying to plan my outfit around my day with a child pulling on my PJs asking for cartoons and milk. Plan the night before and it will GREATLY decrease stress in the morning, whether or not you have a little turkey waking you up. Trust me. I hang ALL the items I plan on wearing on one small rack on the back of my door (you could use a few hangers or one), including the bra, underwear, outfit, and accessories I plan on wearing. I make a mental note of where the shoes are I'm going to wear with it, or just set them below the outfit. DONE! It takes 5 minutes, ladies. Try it!
