I have found that the most successful way to “adult” is to have a series of tips and tricks to make you appear more put together than you actually are. Or in the words of Donna (my mom), “fake it til you make it”. Use enough of these tricks and somewhere along way you’ll figure out this whole adulting thing.
I have never, ever been a morning person and by default, also not a breakfast person. I would prefer to sleep until the very last possible minute and throw my makeup on during my commute at stoplights. But they (adulting experts) weren’t messing around when they said that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. No one wants to hear your grumbling stomach in morning meetings or deal with your hanger. So for all of you fellow night owls I bring you my breakfast tips for night owls.
I found this tip in the Fit Girl’s Guide and I have been hooked ever since. This recipe is so easy and can be prepped several days in advance (keeps up to 3 days). The best part is, there a LOTS of variations (try these too) and you can make up your own concoctions with whatever you have in the fridge.
And, that’s it! Step one to making your breakfast a little bit sweeter.
Cold Press Coffee
Every night owl understands the importance of caffeine, and a LOT of it. This one is so easy it doesn’t even feel fair. If you spend your nights scrolling though Buzzfeed quizzes and pinning recipes on Pinterest you’ll never make, this is the perfect way to get your morning kickstart with minimal effort. Cold press coffee is even stronger than regular brew, so this tip is easy AND effective in bringing you that morning buzz.
I am still faking it every day as I attempt to become a morning person, but these two tricks (and some Beyonce) help make mornings a little easier!
