As a busy mum, we all have hectic mornings, here I have come up with ’10 morning hacks for mums’ to make your morning routine go much smoother.

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 1

Set a fun ringtone on your phone. Nobody likes waking up to a noisy alarm clock, no! Set it to something like fun, rock and any type of pop music you like. If you are not a morning person, you will find no joy in waking up super early in a standard annoying alarm tone!

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 2

You will find that if you set my alarm just 15 minutes earlier, it’s enough that it gives you a little extra time to be less stressed in the morning. I hate to tell you, those velour track suits, we used to be able to look cute in those wearing them all day to the mall and shopping or wherever, not so much now, they’re out!!! Done!! As soon as your feet hit the floor, get dressed!

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 3

One thing I like to do is lay out my outfit the night before. Everything, from socks, shoes, tops, trousers or skirts and everything in between, even earrings and choice of makeup. It lets me leave the stress of trying to find the best outfit for the day in the morning which is awesome. If nothing else, at least you got dressed. Yeah!

There’s just something to be said for starting your day with a made bed. It usually takes less than one minute. It means you’ve accomplished something the second you wake up. It makes you feel good. It gets your blood pumping. So just do it! Just do it!!

Breakfast. OK breakfast. My kids’ favorite breakfast meal, we call it our fluffy egg. You take a cup. You can spray it with cooking spray if you’d like. You crack one egg in the cup. You can add milk, you can add veggies, you can add meat if you’d like. Microwave it. Start with one minute and see if you need more. Every microwave is a little different and poof! You’ve got a fluffy, beautiful egg in one minute. I bet my egg is faster than your cereal.

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 6

As a busy mum, I like to do my girl’s hair during breakfast. She’s occupied, so it’s the perfect opportunity to do her hair without her wiggling all over the place. I keep several go-to hair products in one single bag. So I can grab the bag, do it quickly and sometimes I’ll even throw the bag in the car and do the hair in the car if we’re running late. Maybe you think it’s gross. I think it’s perfectly acceptable!

Now, it’s time to get out the door. I like to leave a basket or a bag by the door that we will be leaving out of in the morning. Throughout the morning and even the night before, I will throw things in the basket that we need. Then it’s quick and easy to just grab the whole bag and head out to the car instead of going into the house 50 times for all the things you forgot.

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 8

One way to ensure that you have a less hectic morning routine is to do as much as you can at night. I like to lay out all the kids’ clothes on the back of the couch the night before so that when they come down in the morning, they’re all there ready for them.

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 9

I have a To Do list for my kids that I stick right on the TV. In our house, you can’t watch a morning show until everything on the To Do list is done.

Morning Hacks For Mums Tip 10

If you have some time the night before, try to pack your kids’ lunches and even your lunch for the next day. I have found that if I shower at night, I have plenty of hot water. Nobody’s interrupting me ’cause all of the kids are in bed and it really cuts down the time that I need to get ready in the morning. I just go to bed with wet hair. I’ll straighten what I need to straighten. Curl what I need to curl. I just all works out fine. I’m most likely gonna throw it in a messy bun anyway in the morning…nobody really cares.
