Time Waster Number 2: Getting Dressed in the Morning!

Why are we so confused in the morning about clothes? Every day, we have to get dressed. Every day we have to decide what to wear, based on where we will be and what we will be doing. Still, we wait until morning, staring in a stupor at the clothes hanging in our closet, wondering what we should put on.

The typical morning for many people goes like this: Where is my (fill in the blank)? Is my (fill in the blank) clean/ironed/still in existence? Do I have the sock that matches this one? Where did I leave my (fill in the blank)? Sometimes we are asking ourselves this question, sometimes other people, much to their annoyance. All of this stress and time wasting could be avoided by planning ahead.

  • If you do not have time on the weekend to do much more than get laundry caught up or pick up the dry cleaning, you could at least prepare each night for the next day. •

Children benefit from doing this just as much as adults. (Warning: Teen-age boys will laugh at you if you suggest this.)
  • Starting the day this way can create a huge difference in your morning.You will feel the benefit of creating this space when you realize that you have time for breakfast or a cup of coffee sitting down
