8 Time Saving Tips to Ease Your Morning

I am a night person.  Mornings are for others, it comes too early in the day.  My husband, on the other hand, is a chipper bird ready to go and do.  My mind rejects such earliness, but alas, mornings come anyway.

Let me share a few things I’ve learned over the years to help you make it through morning brain fog and keep things running smoothly.

Get Out of Bed Immediately – No dawdling, no snooze.  Feet on the floor as soon as the alarm sounds.  Engage your body, your brain will catch up!

Put Your Coffee Maker on Auto-Pilot – Set it the night before and wake up to fresh brewed coffee, mmm…that smells like energy in a cup.

Make Breakfast the Night Before – Whether it’s oatmeal or scrambled eggs make it up before bed and wrap it in a microwave safe plate.  Voila! Reheat in the morning and enjoy.
