If there is one thing us moms don't have much of, it's extra time...Am I right? We're working (whether inside the house or outside it), chasing after kiddos with an endless amount of energy and let's not forget about finding time to spend with our significant others and friends. So, when we can take advantage of a shortcut that will give us back a few minutes of our day, we're all for it! On that note, I'm going to share my top 3 easy time saving tips for moms with you today...
1. Have your morning cup of coffee ready to go...I don't know about you lovelies, but I need a hot, steaming cuppa coffee to start my day, so I make sure everything I need for that morning cup of goodness is all set up the night before. My mug is laid out next to the coffee machine...My Keurig pods are accessible etc. And if I'm really feeling adventurous, I go the french press or pour over coffee route and grind some fresh beans in advance. That way, all I have to do in the morning is heat some water and grab the grounds from the fridge.
2. Lay out your workout clothes the night before...I'm sure you've heard this tip before, but it really does work! Getting up early to exercise is not my favorite...So, I have to remove all obstacles from my working out first thing. If my workout outfit is laid out and ready to put on, that's just one less thing I have to do. I even put my shoes by the door. That way I'm not tempted to leave the house without getting in some activity first!
3. Eliminate a step from your beauty routine...I have to moisturize all year 'round. My skin just looks and feels better when moisturizing is a regular part of my routine. I'm sure many of you are in the same boat...So, how excited would you be if I told you you could moisturize right in the shower? You can apply NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion right after you wash, rinse, towel off and start your day! I love that I can leave the shower with super soft skin...no more steps needed!
