Day 7 – Plan Your Outfit for the Next Day at Bedtime
How’d cleaning a hot spot go yesterday? Were you surprised by how much can be accomplished in just two minutes? I know this timer tip helped change my mindset about cleaning all together. It helped me to see it’s not as big of a deal as I’ve made it out to be before.
Here are the daily habits we’ve built so far:
- Get dressed to shoes
- Shine the kitchen sink
- Check your post-it, phone or written daily reminders
- Read a chapter of one of Cilley’s books, or read her messages on her main website, or come back to this post to see the next day’s baby step
- Become aware of a few of your negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones
- Take two minutes to tackle one hot spot a day
Today is one of my favorite steps – plan your outfit at bedtime! This one habit has helped me so much that I wrote an entire blog post about it. It makes waking up in the morning and getting ready much faster and more pleasant. It’s less I have think about, make decisions about or worry about in the mornings! I just grab my cute outfit and go.
Tip – take a picture of your outfit each night for a few weeks. Save them to a folder on your phone. Then, you can look back and see which clothes you’re actually wearing on a regular basis and can declutter the ones you aren’t touching. You can also use this folder to help plan outfits in the future – use them as your own inspiration! You could even print out the pictures and start a little photo album to pull from. This can also help you to build a capsule wardrobe.
