relaxing morningA relaxing morning can start you off on the right foot as you work to manage stress levels, but tips for an efficient routine can seem antithetic to relaxation. However, the two should really go hand-in-hand, and here’s why.

If you establish efficient habits that make it easy to leave for work (or start work in your home office) on time, you’ve already made the morning more relaxing by removing the stress and anxiety that accompanies the feeling of being behind and the fear of a late start.

On the flip side, facilitating morning relaxation makes it easier to get out of bed on time and helps you maintain the calm frame of mind so necessary for truly efficient activity.

Here are 3 tips for boosting the relaxation and efficiency of your morning routine. What could you do to make some of these your own?

Turn Your Bathroom Into A Spa

If the space is due for a renovation, consider relaxation-enhancing fixtures such as a steam shower in a frameless glass enclosure, a soaker tub, and radiant floor heating.

However, if a remodel is not in your near future, you can still make small changes that turn an ordinary restroom into a luxurious retreat where you can begin the day feeling peaceful and re-energized. Quick and easy upgrades include:

   •  A new set of spa-style towels.
   •  Dimmable light switches or extra lighting options that allow you to create a gentle glow.
   •  Scented candles or an essential oil diffuser.
   •  Upgraded shower-head. (It’s not just about how many different types of spray the shower head offers; today you can also choose shower heads with LED lights, speakers, or aromatherapy.)
   •  A bamboo bathmat.
   •  Fresh coat of paint in your favorite relaxing shade.

Develop Time-Saving Routines in the Evening

We often have some downtime at day’s end, and prep routines can even help us unwind before bed if we approach them with a calm and positive mindset.

Use your coffee maker’s pre-set option so your pot of java is ready and waiting when you get up. Wash and slice a little fresh fruit so that it’s easy to make your breakfast healthier and tastier.

Finally, the routine that might save you the most time in the AM is setting out your outfit and accessories the night before rather than scrambling to put together an ensemble while you’re drowsy and pressed for time.

Create a Tranquil Environment for Every Aspect of Your Morning Routine

What we see, hear, smell, taste, and feel affects our moods more than we might realize. Small thoughtful touches can make getting ready for the day more pleasant and help us keep our minds more calm and connected to the people and things around us.

How about a special coffee cup or cereal bowl with a pattern that makes you feel cheery?

You could even create a calming playlist or personalized radio station to listen to in the morning. It’s also important to have a clutter free space in which to shower, dress, eat breakfast, etc. Should you add more storage options to key areas like the shower stall, bathroom, and dining room?

Have a few glass shelves installed; re-purpose an old hutch and freshen it up with cabinet glass and new knobs; or at least make sure the dining table is cleared off before you go to bed!

ABC Glass and Mirror, Inc. can help you beautify your bathroom with glass shower doors, a framed vanity mirror, a glass backsplash and so on. We can also assist you in creating elegant storage solutions with the help of glass shelves, cabinet glass, and even glass tabletops.
