tips to get ready for work
Get Up nice and early
. Get up early, Take a quick morning shower if needed.
. Get fully dressed, especially if you are going to work. Wear nice clothing. Do not wear house rags or dirty t-shirts. If you are a guy, consider wearing a nice black or white shirt with a tie, nice black pants with dark socks, and black shoes. If you are a lady, you should wear a dress with pants and pretty shoes. You can wear a t-shirt to work, but make sure the t-shirt has no stains.
. Eat a good breakfast. Pop a piece of toast in the toaster and have at least three egg whites with your breakfast. Have a good breakfast with good carbs, good fats, and protein. The combination will keep you satisfied longer. A six ounce glass of orange juice is a good beverage to have with breakfast. However, it is full of sugar and should be drank in moderation. Oatmeal, cereal, or a banana are all good carbs to eat when you start your morning.
Brush Your Teeth After You Eat Breakfast
. Brush them well. Take your time while brushing your teeth. There is no reason whatsoever to rush.
Brush Your Hair
. You can not go to work if your hair is an enormous, static, mess. Brush your hair well, taking care to gently remove any knots or tangles in longer tresses. Do not rush.
Gather everything you need together
. Gather your books, suitcases, or anything you need for work together, preferably the night before. Dont hurry, and make sure you have everything before you leave.
. The night before your early gym sesh, pick out your outfit and have it perfectly laid out and ready for you. Everything you plan to wear , you do not want to waste your time searching for matching socks in the morning.
. If you can cut off a few minutes getting to and from the gym, do it. Instead of walking to the gym and starting your workout when you get there, do a warm up jog to get there and back. If your gym has a decent locker room, get in the habit of getting ready for work at the gym, it will save you a lot of time commuting back and forth from the gym, even if it is just a few blocks away.
Less is More
. Of course it depends where you work and what you are expected to look like while there, but think of ways to simplify your beauty routine. With your makeup, do you really need to spend as much time as you currently do primping? Perhaps you can spend less time on your eyeliner and still look completely presentable for work. Im not suggesting you go bare faced to work, but,if you can get away with a lighter face, go for it, you will probably get co
Hair Time Savers
