An Easy Morning Routine to Start Your Day

a quick morning routine

We all have those days. The alarm doesn’t go off, or we hit snooze about 10 times because staying in your cosy duvet cocoon is much more appealing than leaving it. These mornings tend to occur on Mondays, a day that is universally disliked by all. It comes around every week, but it’s still a shock when it does, right? But have no fear, I’m here with my top tricks and tips on getting ready when time just isn’t on your side.

Prep the night before

A key part of any successful morning routine. If you like your lay ins, preparing some things the night before will allow you to hit that snooze button a few times guilt free. If I know I’ve got an early start, I usually lay out my outfit for the next day. I spend so long staring at my wardrobe in the mornings with no clue what to wear. I find it helpful to have a few go to lazy day outfits planned in my head. Here are a couple of my faves!

An easy and healthy breakfast

Having a good

nutritious breakfast should be an essential part of everybody’s morning. A couple of my favourite quick and easy brekky recipes are smoothies, bagels, fruit bowls and cereal. It’s a good idea to always start your morning with a drink of water too.

If I am running late, I don’t have time for a full face that takes up hours of my morning. I need a quick, fresh and radiant look to at least pretend I got out of bed on time and put effort into my look. One of my favourite time savers is showering at night. I love my long showers, so doing this the night before is a big time saver. However, if you forget to do this, dry shampoo will be your best bud! My favourite is Batiste.

For skincare, keeping it sweet and simple is always recommended. Too many harsh and artificial chemicals aren’t good for your sensitive skin. I recommend a face wash, toner, moisturiser and eye cream. This takes minutes, but will leave your face fresh and clean (my current favourite products are all linked).

When you’re in a rush in the morning, a simple makeup look is easiest, or no makeup! My go to easy makeup look includes a primer, concealer, mascara and eyebrow gel (Again, all my favourites are linked). Creating a simple look with these products takes under 5 minutes and is perfect for an easy morning routine.

A little stretch

When you can’t fit a full blown workout into your busy morning, stretching is a great way to start the day. It wakes up your body and can help you feel that little bit more energised.

    This is exactly the post I needed and I’m so glad I found it! Such good tips and it’s so helpful to have things written out as a mini schedule for each morning, rather than just every being squeezed in and hoping you haven’t forgotten anything! I’ll definitely be referring back to this post in the future – thank you for the advice!

    Sending you good vibes for a wonderful weekend!

    I love this! Simple but effective 😁💕 this is more or less my routine too. I try to plan some thing the night infront esp if the clothes I want to wear need ironing. That PLT outfit is such a steal btw totes cute! Also I ALWAYS have breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the deal & I can’t function without it. 🥞 🍳

    It’s a great post, thank you for sharing. I try to do everything in advance too, especially, if I go to bed late, but sometimes it just sucks, when I prepared outfit in advance, but the weather for example is different from what I expected 🙁

  • Frertsu

    These are actually great tips! I tend to snooze my alarm a lot and as a result I always have no time for a workout or preperly choosing what to wear. Also, thank you for sharing your favorites!

    I like the tips you provided here. I have started to prep more the night before, and it helps make the mornings a lot easier.

  • Giana

    I’m so bad at planning the night before, and then I end up wearing whatever I can find cause I run out of time aha! Need to get in the habit or prepping my work clothes before hand! xx

    Great blog post and yeah Mondays are definitely not my favourite day of the week. I remember when I was little and my mum and dad would remind me about it being Monday what meant school what I definitely did not look forward to at all. I have also like many other people hit that snooze button what’s messed up the rest of my day.
