How do you escape #firstthing? // Win a HOST digital mixer shower from Triton Showers

26/09/2017

*A post in partnership with Triton Showers 

With the back to school routine in full swing, those couple of hours before the school run can be a rush with demands for rounds of toast at breakfast and the whereabouts of clean PE kits, it can be quite stressful. I’m still finding my feet as a school Mum but have found that if I escape for just ten minutes in the shower before the family get up, I’m ready to face the world and all that it throws at me.

Triton Showers HOST digital mixer
Being an ‘Early Morning Escapist’, I love to make the most of the morning before the family get up. Once the alarm goes off, I’ll pop downstairs to put the kettle on and get the breakfast ready (the family can then help themselves whilst I’m getting ready.) My time in the shower is precious, I like to indulge in using my favourite products and enjoy my ten minutes of ‘me time’. Just escaping from reality for a few minutes washing away the worries of yesterday can make the world of difference.

Triton Showers understand how precious time in the morning is to Mums (and Dads) like me and have a fantastic range of showers to help us make the most of our escapism time in the morning. Their latest product, the HOST wireless digital mixer shower, is the ultimate centrepiece for the modern bathroom.

Triton Showers HOST digital mixer

HOST™ technology allows users to personalise their shower time for the ultimate me-time experience thanks to the three customisable pre-sets. Each programme can be customised using 16 temperature and 10 flow increments allowing the digital mixer suitable for the whole family. What’s more, for a quick and easy routine, HOST has an optional wireless start/stop control with warm up feature, which can be located outside of the bathroom preferably within reach of the bed (how incredible is that?)

I need one of these HOST digital mixer showers in my life, although I’m pretty sure if we have one, I’d need to get up even earlier for the usual morning routine as I’d spent forever in the shower.

Win your very own HOST digital mixer shower from Triton Showers worth £456

Triton Showers have given me one very smart and clever HOST digital mixer shower to give away to one lucky reader of Life According to MrsShilts.

    #firstthing to set me up for the day is a quick run in the morning, followed by a even quicker shower before everyone in the house wakes up

    My #firstthing advice is get everything ready the night before – it makes getting up much easier knowing you don’t have to run around finding things!

  • Reply Mary Heald 26/09/2017 at 1:50 pm

    Firstly I make sure I have a good nights sleep so I wake up refreshed. I then have a shower and put the radio on so I can sing along. Then my day doesn’t start properly unless I have cuppa and a bowl of muesli…..then after dressing I am ready to start the day.

    My #firstthing advice is to make sure you factor a bit of time for yourself in! It’s very easy to get caught up in making other people breakfast or searching for PE kits before rushing out of the door but make sure you have enough time to get yourself something to eat or have a nice shower.

    I think I have to make sure that the kids have got all their school bags ready the night before, as well as making sure mine is ready too – plus make sure I decide what I am wearing the night before. At least then I can have five minutes longer in bed to wake up properly before getting up. If the kids are rushing round, trying to find that piece of homework in the morning, I end up getting much more stressed and it sets me back in the morning!

    My #firstthing advice is to give yourself 15 extra minutes to yourself to get you going in the morning – evening if it means getting up 15 minutes early. You will feel a lot better and set up for the day if you have given yourself a little time to get ready

  • Reply Debbie W 28/09/2017 at 7:17 pm

    First piece of advice is to organise bags, outfits, lunches etc the night before, then getting up is a breeze. Second piece of advice I’m afraid is coffee! I stagger downstairs with my eyes not quite open and put the kettle on. Then, while drinking my first cup I sort breakfasts and get the kids out to school. Then I have time for a shower and get ready for my day.

    Have a shower with an energising body wash (something citrus and zingy!), think about the day ahead and plan anything that needs to be done at work. Creating a mental plan/snapshot of the day really helps to get in the right mind frame and set yourself up to achieve your goals for the day.

    Many people have a ‘wake up shower’ #firstthing as do I BUT recent studies are really showing the advantage of COLD water first thing so I am now showering but finishing with a really cold burst!

  • Reply Ann Skamarauskas 05/10/2017 at 4:14 pm

    make sure I wake up a bit earlier than I need and wake up slowly with a Lumie “sunrise” clock so I can take my time getting out of bed and am not rushing around

    The only thing to do is pop my slippers on! Then sidle on downstairs and pop the kettle on while I make my breakfast smoothie – can’t start the day without it! Catching up on the morning news while I get myself ready also helps me feel one step ahead of the day from the get go.

    The #FirstThing I do is have a hot shower, then have breakfast (very important!). I do a quick run through of things I need to get done that day, and check to make sure I have everything I need to take with me.

  • Reply katrina adams 05/10/2017 at 10:20 pm

    #FirstThing I do is make sure I have my clothes the night before – Knowing I don’t have to worry about what I’m wearing always helps alleviate stress. I also find reading the things I am grateful for (again written up the night before) helps start me on the right mood for the morning.

    I work best under pressure. I don’t buy into the ‘set the alarm 10 minutes fast’ mentality basically ‘faking’ extra time. I’d rather set it for a time where i’m up against it – no time to lie, up, showered, teeth, ready, tea, breakfast, and on with your day. Maybe it’s the Adrenalin that helps but certainly gets me awake and going #firstthing

  • Reply Alison Johnson 06/10/2017 at 12:25 am

    This has changed so much now my son is at college! The #firstthing I do after brushing my teeth is have a lovely chocolate milkshake. I don’t do hot drinks & hate tea & coffee.

      Pressed the post button too soon – My #firstthing advice is to drink a cup of coffee and practice mindfulness for 25 minutes. This will set you up for the day ahead, no problem. There’s some great YouTube videos with mindfulness practices.

    My #Firstthing is to make sure I have prepared what I can the night before, eg prepared packed lunches, ironed uniforms, taken bread for toast out of freezer etc. Then I set my alarm for about 15 minutes before I need to get up so that i can come to gradually and still have time for a shower before my son goes into the bathroom.
