Top Tips for…making your mornings more productive

Morning, sunshine!

Katie Mythen-Lynch

Do you find yourself chasing your tail as soon as the alarm goes off? A dodgy morning can set the pace of your entire day, so if your daily grind could be a little smoother, it might be time for action. 

Try these tips for starting off on the right foot:

1. Dress yourself first

Good days start the night before. Take five minutes after dinner to plan and lay out your own outfit, including underwear, tights and accessories, for the following morning. This saves precious minutes before the school run and gives you a little time to think about yourself at the beginning of the day.

2. Make a list

Checking items off a list is not only satisfying, it also ensures nothing goes undone. Apps such as Evernote allow you to tag websites, save recipes, note important dates and organise your work or childcare schedule on your phone. It’s also handy for planning holidays, coordinating play dates and organising photographs.

3. Mind over mattress

Get out of bed 20 minutes earlier and enjoy an aromatherapy shower before the kids wake. Not only will it inject a little luxury into your day, it’ll also soothe away pent-up stress. If the house is still snoozing, you might even have time for a peaceful breakfast before everyone else comes tumbling downstairs for theirs.

With 4 tasty layers that really pack a punch, Nestlé SHREDDIES® are packed with whole grain and fibre to help see you through ’til lunch.
