Mornings seem to be the most stressful part of our day, but establishing an easier morning routine can make all the difference for you.

Several years ago, I had such a busy day, and my mornings were extremely limited in time.

At first I panicked, until I improvised a few easier ways to get out the door faster, without skipping breakfast, a morning workout, or forgetting my lunch.

Oh, and yes, I even had time to shower and do my makeup too!

Here are my best tips for lightening up your morning routine, but I’m always up for hearing a few more if you feel like sharing!

1. Iron the Night before

I know when you’re tired at night, ironing is the last thing you want to do, but ironing your clothes each night will really help lighten up your morning routine.

If you have a spacey closet, you can even plan your outfits for the week, and do all your ironing on Sunday while you catch up on a movie on television or something.

Ironing the night before, or for the week ahead, can save you at least 10 minutes every morning.

Now you don’t have to go with wrinkled clothes, or skip your breakfast just to get out the door on time.

2. Lay out Your Workout Clothes

This old trick also works wonders for lightening up your morning routine.

When you first wake up, you’re probably not only a little foggy, but also tired and unmotivated.

Who wants to dig for their sports bra, workout tank, and shorts or leggings in the wee morning hours?

That makes it seem like so much work, and then there are the socks, water bottle, iPod, and shoes.

Oh, and what about hair bands?

Do yourself a favor and lay all this out in one spot the night before.

You’ll be more likely to do your workout and get out the door faster.
