Tick tock: pick up the pace with some of our simple tips. Liven up that morning routine of yours!
The way my mornings unravel is the ultimate reflection on how the rest of my day will be. I wake up and set myself an expectation to complete specific tasks. I aim for a healthy breakfast, a made-up bed, a clean kitchen, and to look presentable for work/meetings/events.
Despite a crazy household, schedule, itinerary – whatever your case may be, I’ve got 5 simple steps that can keep your morning routine going and flowing.
5 Ways to Speed Up Your Morning Routine
Who’s Working Wardrobe?
As simple of a task it may seem, laying out your clothes the night before can save a lot of “Hmms…” and “Does that even match?” first thing in the morning.
Know Your Face
If you’re one for sporting some makeup, practice a 5-minute “glam routine” until you get a look down pat. Mine mainly consists of mascara and undereye concealer.
Not a Dirty Dish in Sight
I strive to get all of the dishes and kitchen clean-up done the night before. Waking up to a sink full of dirty plates can be a real eyesore.
Everything Has Its Place
Whether it’s Leo’s pacifier or my car keys, I make a conscious effort to put everything back where they belong. This way, I can just grab whatever I need and make my way out the door.
Breakfast Sandwiches are Ultra-Convenient
I’m a sucker for a good breakfast. I’ll rarely take things to-go and actually take my first-meal-of-the-day very seriously. Hit me up with some bacon, eggs, and a hot cup of coffee, and I’m totally your gal.
Of course, feeding my family an abundant breakfast on a daily basis is not-so realistic. Breakfast sandwiches are often my go-to because they offer versatility, good taste, and convenience.
Up until recently, I was assembling my breakfast sandwiches the traditional way: fry the egg, melt the cheese, toast the bread, etc. But then I found myself with Hamilton Beach‘s oh-so famous Breakfast Sandwich Maker… and you know what?
Total. Game. Changer.
In 5 minutes, I can make a breakfast sandwich that’s sizzled to perfection with any ingredients that I want. No hassle. No mess. It’s just a fun game of layering! Everything is literally made within the sandwich maker itself. I love that I can crack the egg directly on one of the cooking plates and I leave the rest to my new, nifty machine.
When I made my first sandwich, I immediately fell in love. It saved me so much time for prep and cleanup that I was actually looking for something to do.
Retailing at $39.99 CDN, Hamilton Beach has totally changed my morning routine… for the better. I can’t wait to try different ingredient combinations (next stop: red bell pepper).
