How to Have a Slow Morning Routine Even if You Don’t Have Time?

We all have been made familiar with the importance of morning routines over and over again. But what if we don’t have enough time in the morning and even an hour seems less at times? 

Not everyone can push their waking up time by an hour or so and it is totally acceptable. Having a good quality, 8 hour sleep is more important than trying to recreate some fancy morning routine.

However, this does not mean waking up 15 minutes before you are supposed to start working is acceptable.

Even if you have just 30 minutes you can have a slow yet productive morning routine. No running around.

Have an Evening Routine

Have an Evening Routine

Well, it is a no brainer. If you don’t have time in the morning you need to start from the night before. Select what you would like to wear, eat, pack for lunch a day prior. This way you can cut the time you waste in deciding what to wear and avoid skipping breakfast. If possible, make your lunch and breakfast a day prior as well. You can go with overnight oats, parfaits, cold salad, and wraps.

Combine Your Silent Time With Your Washroom Time

I don’t think morning routine articles on the internet include the very obvious washroom time. You can use this time to multitask. While you are in the washroom, doing your business, you can sit in silence and meditate simultaneously. Instead of going through social media or playing music, try to sit in silence with your eyes closed while taking the dump or showering. While brushing your teeth, look in the mirror and silently recite your affirmations to yourself. There you go, you have started your day with meditation.

Eat While Your Coffee Is Brewing

Eat While Your Coffee Is Brewing

If you love your morning coffee as much as I do, you will probably like the idea of having it first thing in the morning. It’s bliss, I know but it is bad as well. So, while your coffee is brewing or your kettle is boiling the water for you, have your breakfast. There’s no point standing and waiting for the water to boil or coffee to brew, you can invest this time in doing something else.

Your Coffee Is Hot, Don’t Blow, Write

Instead of trying to get your coffee to the desired temperature, you can write in your journal. Instead of filling in the pages, just make some pointers of whatever you want to write. 3 things you are grateful for, 3 things that you did yesterday for yourself and 3 things you plan to do today. Make small points and you are done. If your coffee is still hot, you can read something or make your bed.

Get Ready

Get Ready

Again, when getting ready you can silently meditate and connect with your thoughts. Breathe and relax while changing your outfit, doing your skincare or makeup and maybe smile for no reason. This way you will meditate again and probably calm yourself down in case you start feeling anxious. Use this time to plan your day as well. In your head, think what all you need to get done by the end of the day and what are the tasks that you need to prioritize. Make a structure of the day in your head and now tell yourself that you can do this easily.

It’s Time to Leave, No?

We are done, right? It’s time to leave for the office, isn’t it? Or do you still have some time? Well, if you do have some more time, consider writing down the structure of the day you just created or maybe go through your emails. If not that, take a look around yourself and see if there is something that needs to be done. Is your bed made? Are your clothes in the laundry basket? Are the dishes stacked in the dishwasher already? Is the coffee table clean? Anything that needs to be done should be done at this point. And if there is something that will probably take longer than just a few minutes make a note of them and make sure you do it as soon as you are back home. For instance, if there is a plumbing issue, make a note that you need to book an emergency plumber in Milton Keynes while coming back from the office and get everything repaired by the evening. This way you will again be stress free in the morning.

That’s it, you are done for the morning! Have a great day.
