Do as much as possible the night before
Stress isn't pretty, and you surely don't want to start the day with an anxious look on your face. From showering to picking out clothes, the more you have done when you go to bed, the less you have to worry about in the morning. "I always glance at my calendar right after dinner. That way I know exactly what I'm facing when I open my eyes the next morning.
Hydrate yourself for energy and beauty
Drink lots of water. Keep a glass of water on your bedside table and drink it before your feet hit the floor in the morning. You'll feel clear-headed and energetic -- and it's great for your complexion, too.
Schedule some alone time
As much as you want that last 15-minutes of sleep, you may find that getting a jump-start ahead of the rest of the family helps tremendously. Use the 15 minutes in whatever way you like: to pray or meditate, to check your e-mail, to do your hair and make-up. It's your time.
Wash you face
Wash your face with a washcloth to remove sleep debris and follow with a long lasting moisturiser.
