The Snooze Button

The Snooze Button

Je crois que mon corps est un peu en mode hibernation…

C’est l’époque où tout ce dont j’ai envie, c’est de rester dans mon lit chaud et douillet le plus longtemps possible tous les matins… ce qui veut dire que j’ai trouvé quelques solutions stratégiques pour réduire mon temps de préparation. Bon, ok, j’avoue, j’abuse un peu du bouton « Snooze » ces jours-ci, j’ai donc du me creuser pour trouver le moyen de gagner du temps …

Je prépare mentalement ma tenue du jour. Un peu comme si j’avais ma styliste perso,  sauf que là, c’est complètement gratuit (parce que c’est moi !)… Mais c’est vrai que ça permet d’éviter les changements de dernière minute, là où je perds le plus de temps.

Je réalise mes soins du visage sous la douche. Je fais un gommage et me nettoie le visage pendant le temps de pose de mon après-shampoing et ça fonctionne super bien. Il m’arrive aussi de me brosser les dents sous la douche.

J’utilise des produits multi-tâches tous les jours ! Pourquoi utiliser deux produits quand on peut n’en utiliser qu’un seul ? Mon chouchou du moment : Les Beiges de Chanel, qui contient un écran SPF et qui me sert aussi (attention) de poudre, blush, illuminant et fard à paupière. Tous. Les. Jours.

Je prends mon café au Studio. Attendre d’être au Studio pour prendre un café me fait gagner au mois 15 minutes à la maison tous les matins (faire bouillir de l’eau, moudre le café, faire la vaisselle…)

Éviter le téléphone. J’ai une nouvelle règle : je ne consulte mon téléphone qu’une seule fois au réveil pour voir si j’ai des message ou mails urgents et regarder le temps qu’il fait. Ensuite, j’essaie de ne plus m’en servir jusqu’à ce que j’aie quitté la maison… comme ça, je ne me retrouve pas prise dans la spirale infernale d’Instagram ou à commencer une conversation par texto avec ma meilleure amie. Ce qui fait sans doute encore 20 minutes de plus au lit.

Et vous, vous avez des trucs pour gagner du temps le matin ?
(Et sinon, c’est juste moi, ou on est vraiment dans une phase d’hibernation ?)

  • I’ve done the mental preparation of my next day outfit and I love it :) besides, I’m pretty lazy and get into that Novemberish hibernation which I hate and wake up in December for the most wonderful time of the year, lol ;)


  • I try to do the mental outfit thing too. Sometimes I’ll pull something out the night before but that is very rare. I too wash, condition, etc in the shower…never thought of brushing my teeth there too, hmmm.
    I try to use Mulitple use products too but doesn’t always work, but the skin are routine is standard and I can roll through pretty efficiently now.
    Now if only my hair dryer was faster on those bitter cold mornings where air drying is not possible.

    I agree with you, I want to sleep very early each day now… :D

  • Je prépare aussi ma tenue mentalement, souvent la veille, dans mon lit avant de m’endormir…

    Practice self compassion! Remind myself it is temporary. Sleep more. Read more. Slowdown before December’s full throttle. I should get back to early morning workouts & evening yoga session soon enough, meanwhile, contemplation is an art!
    Merci Garance, i thought is was just me! ;-)

    I already do the first three and it still takes me forever to get out of the door. Might be something to do with morning Instagram addition…:)

    Ahahah, préparation mentale de la tenue ici aussi, et comme je suis styliste, ce n’est pas trop cher!
    Je vais tenter la ruse du téléphone…
    Et en début de mode hibernation, j’ai aussi très envie de manger tout un tas de trucs pas healthy du tout!

  • Hello!
    I started to reply in French but then feared my grammar is a little rusty. I also brush my teeth in the shower and I thought it was just me being weird so thank you for normalising that for me Garance!
    A tickle of ink,

  • I can almost say that I’ve been doing the same things as you since middle September, but I still glance too many times at my phone. One way to keep me in check is putting it on Do Not Disturb mode – this way I can sleep 10 minutes more, without hearing the sounds of received messages. Since I’m a lazy person, I might even skip on make-up to save some sleeping time – just use a concealer here and there and a lip balm on the way to work. No eyeliner, mascara, blush & the works.

  • I do actually put my clothes out the night before, and make sure my breakfast and lunch stuff is as prepped as it can be. My commute has really increased this school year and I don’t want to get up any earlier than six! I was waiting to eat and have coffee til I got to school, but it just took one two-and-a-half-hour commute without food or coffee that, when I know the roads are bad, I make coffee and grab something to eat in the car!

  • I know! I need to not be on my phone all morning — so distracting


  • Pre-arranging my outfit is the ultimate time saver. From earings to shoes!

  • Avoid the phone! best tip ever…saves soooo much time:))

  • I’m so bad at this, I just woke up at 11 and my alarm was set at 9! These tips are great though, definitely need to try and condense my makeup routine that takes up half my time!

  • Ahaha comme je me reconnais dans le « se brosser les dents sous la douche ». Quand il s’agit d’économiser quelques précieuses minutes sous la couette, tout est permis ;)

  • In the summertime I didn’t want to stay in bed because of the heat, but now with all the fluffy duvets I really can’t get up every single morning… What helps me though is to start my day by going to the gym, weird I know but it helps! :D

  • de très bons conseils :) mais un peu difficile à suivre pour le téléphone, on est devenu tellement accro :(

  • When in a hurry, I can get ready in 10 minutes. But to function normally I need a good, slow breakfast, morning news and blogs, more than half a litre of tea with milk, checking the weather about 7 times before I head through the door (dressed wrongly)… I would rather get up in the middle of the night to have a proper morning routine.

  • A lot of print but still wonderfully done!

    I go one step further and actually remove tomorrow’s outfit from the wardrobe & hang it on the front of the door every evening. I actually really enjoy styling myself of an evening. Sadly, the snooze alarm has caught me too – I’ve had to set my alarm for an earlier time in the first place to fit in all the snoozes! ;)

  • I toast the bread while in the shower! So that when I’m out I can put the almond butter immediately! & Do Not Disturb mode between snoozing the alarm until reaching my work place – so I’m undisturbed by work texts until I actually reach the office. Of course, having coffee only when I reach my work desk saves a lot of time!

    That was a problem until I had my first child 22 years ago and now it’s 6:30 in the morning and I am regardless that they are grown now.
