Week Night Evening Routine

I thrive off of routines. It takes a lot of stress and procrastination away from me when I have a plan and stick to it. I have been working on creating an evening routine especially on week nights because I have been finding myself staying up way too late trying to get things done because I spent more time doing pointless things (as I exit out of my YouTube tab). I am sure we all have this problem.

I started to write a morning routine. But to be perfectly honest, I don’t have one. On the days I have to go to work, I get out of bed at the very last minute. Run through the house like a Tasmanian devil. Typically, with an attitude mad at myself thinking “why didn’t I wake up in enough time so I didn’t have to rush? ” I am a work in progress when it comes to mornings. That said, I make sure I have everything done and ready the night before. In the morning all I have to do is get myself together and get out the door. I even put cream in my coffee cup so I don’t even have to measure the amount.

Here is my evening routine:

4pm – Gym

5pm – Once home, hop in the shower

6pm – Eat Dinner and relax and watch TV

7pm – Work on the blog

9pm- Get read for bed and prepare for the next day.  After that I read before bed

10pm/10:30- Pray and go to bed

Clothes Prep

I’m sure I am not the only one that has a problem getting out of the door for work on time. Have you ever had one of those days were you feel like you have nothing to wear? Well I have the solution and it’s 99% fool proof!

Get your clothes ready on Sunday night or the night before! It also helps to have backup outfits, just in case something doesn’t work out. For example, if you have that snag on your nail that rips your last pair of stockings, then you can wear your back up outfit. I really do keep my clothes on a garment rack in my room. It helps me to see what I have and what I am wearing through out the week.

Once I have implemented this into my weekly, and night time routine. I can get out of the house in 45 minutes, that includes walking the dog. Do you all have any tips or tricks to share to get out of the house QUICK? It also helps me to know what I am doing with my hair and makeup. I have a signature look, I wear to work almost everyday (unless I am feeling fancy). For the most part I like to have very low maintenance hair just to keep things on the simple side. Usually, I reserve the weekends to let my creativity show.
