Some of you may know that I recently started my teaching journey with a group of kindies that keep my pretty busy three times a week. This requires me to be promptly out the door at 7:30 AM…leaving little time to fuss. Maybe that doesn’t so terrible to some of you…but for a student who purposely schedules her classes to begin late morning…that is a major change.
I started thinking about how I could savor that time in the morning to sleep. One easy solution? Planning ahead of time. As much as I love my outfits, it can take me a long time to choose an outfit…so planning the night before has saved me a ton of time!
Today, I am going to give you some easy tips to plan ahead so that you are never late…
Check the weather
I always make sure I check the weather the night before so I know what kind of day to dress for. Even in the winter, there are more mild days than others, and on those kinds of days, you do not want to be caught wearing a turtle-neck with a sweater (because you will boil).
Plan with layers
This may shock you…but this actually applies to all seasons. No matter the season, when you are working inside, the temp can be wild. I always make sure that I layer, or at least keep something available to keep me warm. Those air conditioning units can leave me shivering on the hottest days.
Lay it out
Once you know what you are wearing…lay it out. You can save LOADS of time by just laying out your outfit or pulling the pieces you are going to wear to the front of your closet. That way, when you wake up with only half an hour to spare, you don’t spend half the time looking for those pieces.
Spending time the night before planning out your outfit will save you a TON of time. It also is just plain organized. This goes right along with packing your lunch and bag the night before…really just allocate your time the night before so all of those previous minutes in the morning can be used for the important stuff…sleep.
