The mornings are getting colder and darker, and if you’re like most, you want to stay tucked under your covers until the very last minute. This leaves us with little to no time to figure out what to wear. So, if you want to save time and look great every single morning, here are five smart tips for you.

Repeat your outfits

Women sometimes feel pressured to wear different clothes on the regular. But save yourself time by repeating the same outfits – especially the ones you love. If you like the way you look in them, you’ll feel good. And repeating your outfit means you can feel good more often, too. 

Create a work uniform

When you find an outfit that just works for you and your job, stick to it. It can save you so much mental energy in the morning. It can also eliminate a lot of stress when trying to pick out the outfit. 

Select your outfit the night before

Take 5 to 10 minutes in the evening to pick out your outfit for the next day. Don’t do it in the morning when you’re groggy, pressed for time and unmotivated. 

Find your style inspiration

If there’s a style icon you love, follow his or her lead and imitate their outfits. Why not?

Keep your wardrobe curated

You might have a ton of clothes, but there’s a good chance that very few of them make you happy. With your wardrobe, stick to the old adage: less is more. Instead of having lots of pieces, keep your wardrobe curated and edited. The only things you should have in your closet are the pieces you actually wear because you love them.

If you keep your wardrobe curated, getting ready in the morning will be much faster and way more satisfying. 

Here in the West, we tend to take yoga, dice it up and put it into neat little boxes. For example, we have heart-opening yoga poses, yoga for weight loss, yoga for abs, yoga for PMS, etc. 

It’s true that yoga poses can focus on specific regions of the body, but yoga poses are actually all about the mind-body-spirit connection. These heart-opening poses are proof! They support the upper body and open the chest area, and they open us up to more love, compassion and vulnerability.  No matter where you are in your yoga practice, you can find at least one heart-opening pose to both open your physical and emotional body to more love.
