我们有一些小建议和技巧能够帮助到您从早晨的琐碎事情中节约些时间,让您能够按时上班。请参阅下面有用的建议,并在评论中分享下早晨的那些琐碎事儿。
早晨节约时间的九个简单小妙招
1. Don’t hit snooze.
1.别打盹儿
Step away from the snooze button. You’re deluding2 yourself if you think an extra 10 minutes will make that much difference. If you do manage to fall back asleep in that time, you’re just going to feel even more sleepy when your alarm goes off a second time.
远离小睡按钮。如果您认为再来十分钟就不困的话,那是在骗自己呢。假如最终您还是选择再睡儿的话,等闹钟再闹时,您会觉得更困。
Get in the habit of getting out of bed when your alarm sounds and you’ll have a better, more efficient, start to the day.
养成闹钟一响就起床的习惯,那这一天会有一个更好的,更有效率的开始。
2. Get a shower timer.
2.备一个淋浴计时器
Force yourself to shower faster by investing in a shower timer. You can buy basic versions for only a matter of dollars, and you’ll save that in just a few weeks by using less water and energy.Also,streamline3 your shower process. For example, if you wash and condition your hair first, the conditioner will be ready to rinse4 off once you’ve washed, shave or rinsed5 the rest of you.
买个淋浴计时器,迫使自己冲凉冲快点儿。您可以买那种简版的,只需几美元,而且会在短短几周内通过使用更少的水和电回本。同时,要简化您沐浴的过程,比如:如果是先洗护头发,洗发素要提前备好,一旦洗完,随手就可以护理,剃胡须以及冲洗其余部分。
3. Automate6 your morning coffee.
3.自动调制咖啡
If you’re the type of person who needs a coffee before you can even think about beginning to get ready, consider a machine with a built-in timer, so you can wake to the smell of freshly-brewed java and get your fix that little bit quicker.You can buy programmable coffee machines for less than $30, so it’s not even a major investment, but it could make a difference to your day.
如果您是那种不喝咖啡简直就无法思考的人,考虑备台内置计时器的咖啡机吧,这样可以一醒来就能闻到新鲜调制好的咖啡,从而让您的速度快起来。也可以买那种可编程的咖啡机,只不到30美元,这甚至算不上什么大的投资,却能带给自己不一样的生活。
4. Sort your clothes the night before.
4.前一天晚上整理好衣物
Save many wasted minutes of indecision in front of your wardrobe every morning by checking the forecast for the next day and planning your entire outfit7 the night before. Not only will you avoid what-to-wear crises, but you’ll spend less time hunting around for a certain tie to match a shirt, a pair of unladdered pantyhose or having to iron something last minute.
前一天晚上就规划好明天的衣着打扮,可以节省每天早上杵在衣橱前浪费的时间。这样做不仅仅能解决穿什么的问题,还可以让您花更少时间到处找配衬衫的领带、没抽丝的裤袜或者最后的熨烫工作。
5. Go cold breakfast.
5.吃冷早餐
Don’t give yourself extra work by trying to cook on the days you have to leave the house on time. A cold breakfast is quicker and can be healthier than anything you need to cook.Try making a big bowl of fruit salad twice a week and having a helping8 every morning. Give yogurt a go. Cereal or granola are other time-saving options. Then, when you do have time to make a cooked breakfast on days you’re not working, it will be more of a treat.
不要在需要按时出门的日子花额外的时间做早餐。冷的早餐更快,而且比什么都健康。试试一周做两次大碗沙拉,每天早晨一小盘。喝酸奶吃麦片也是很节约时间的。当然,休息日的时候,您确有时间做早餐的话,那就把它看成一顿犒劳吧。
6. Set a countdown timer.
6.设置倒计时器
If you know you have to leave the house in 40 minutes, set a countdown timer to keep you on track. Having a visible reminder9 of the minutes ticking away might spur you into speeding up your morning routine, rather than letting the time creep up on you.
如果您确实要在四十分钟内出家门,就设置个倒计时器来跟踪督促自己。有个可见的,不断流逝的时间提醒器会刺激自己加快完成早晨琐碎事务的速度,而不是让时间慢慢浪费掉。
7. Leave yourself notes.
7.给自己留便条
Don’t rely on your morning brain to remember anything important. If you need to remember something, write a note and stick it to the back of your front door the night before. It will takemere10 seconds but save you time the next day having to return to the house when you realize you forgotten that important thing when you’re already 15 minutes down the road.
早晨不要指望大脑帮您记住一些重要的事情。如果需要记些什么,请于前一天晚上写在便条上,并将它贴到大门后。这样做起来只需花几秒钟的时间,却能省掉您在到达工作地点前十五分钟突然发现忘记重要事物时,再返回家的时间。
8. Have a place for everything.
8.安排一个置放随身物品的地方
Get organized and create a specific, permanent home for your keys, wallet, phone, coat, bag, umbrella, etc. A simple key rack, caddy and coat peg11 will do the trick. You will literally12save collective hours by not spending that frantic13 10 minutes before you want to leave the house desperately14 trying to locate your keys. As soon as you get home every evening, put everything in its proper place.
为自己的随身物品如:钥匙、钱包、电话、衣服、包包、雨伞等安排一个恒定摆放的地方。一个简单的键架、一只盒子、一个外套挂钩往往就能达到效果。出门前如果不再花那宝贵的十分钟疯狂地找钥匙的话,加起来真能节省到几小时呢。因此,您要晚上一回到家,就把随身物品放得妥妥的。
9. Utilize15 your commute16.
9.利用好通勤时间
Depending on what kind of commute you have, use it to your advantage. If you’re a passenger in a private car, could you eat your breakfast on the way to work? Do your make-up on the journey? If you’re a train or bus user, you could use the time to check email, social sites and the news to save wasting time doing it at home. Those who walk to work could catch the headlines via radio.All of us can use the time to think about the hours ahead and get mentally ready for whatever the day will bring.
这取决于您用什么样的通勤模式,好好利用吧。如果乘坐私家车上班,何不试试在路上早吃餐?或者在途中化妆呢?如果乘坐火车或者公交,可以利用乘车的时间做些本来要在家里做的事情,如:查收邮件,翻看社交网站以及新闻之类的。那些步行族,则可以通过无线电收听新闻头条。我们所有人都可以提前规划时间安排,为即将要做的事务做好准备。
