Summary: Here are 7 gadgets that could help you save the couple minutes you need in the morning.
If there is one thing much of the American population struggles with, it’s getting out of the door and off to their daily activities, on time. Whether it’s just you and you’re struggling to get to work or you’re a parent of four and you have to get the whole crew to school, mornings can be difficult and certain tasks take up way too much of our time.
If you’re looking to speed up your morning routine, there are many things you can do that don’t involve setting the alarm clock for 15 or 30 minutes earlier. There are some things you can do the night before to save you time, and other gadgets that can save you just a few minutes, but those few minutes can make a huge difference.
Here are seven gadgets that you need to get out of the house faster. If it’s not something you’ve tried, think about how it would help you and then give it a go yourself. But remember, these gadgets won’t work unless you consistently use them and make them a part of your routine. Don’t let them end up forgotten in the back of a cabinet!
1. Runaway Clock On Wheels
What better device to get you up out of your bed than an alarm clock that you have to chase down?
2. Bluetooth Shower Speaker
If you’re usually half asleep in the shower, try to get your brain and body moving with some upbeat tunes-- just make sure your playlist isn’t something that will send you back to sleep.
3. Tile Mate
If you spend part of your morning searching for your keys, Tile Mate will save you a lot of time and frustration by telling you exactly where you’ve left them. Weirdly enough, it can also help you find your phone!
Yep, one more thing you can connect to your phone. Wouldn’t getting out of bed be much better after you’ve told your coffee to get brewing?
5. Verilux Rise and Shine Natural Wake-up Light
Sleeping and waking up, come much more easily when you’re in tune with the sun. If that’s not possible because of your schedule (and it’s likely not…) this lamp helps to simulate natural light and help your body feel in sync.
6. Nest Learning Thermostat
When it’s freezing cold and dark outside, the last thing you want to do is leave your warm bed. But what if you set your thermostat to be a warm temperature right when you wake up?-- in comes Nest.
7. Nutribullet Blender
The last thing most people have time to do on a busy morning is make and eat breakfast. Throw some ingredients into this blender, make a smoothie, and then switch the blade for a lid and head to work with zero cleanup.
