Believe us, a Nu-Da heated jacket will make your life WAY easier. Before you crack and sign that course discontinuation form, let us give you some pointers on how to make your life a little easier when you’ve got an 8am to get to.
SCENE: you live 2 hours away from campus BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT, but you know you have to have your morning coffee in order to function for the day, setting you back at least another 15 minutes. You decide you don’t want to subject your fellow PT goers to the catastrophe that is your morning-and-coffee breath so you chuck in 3 minutes to slide a toothbrush through your mouth. Then it takes you another 15 minutes when you wake up to lie in bed questioning your very existence along with “do I REALLY need this degree?”
Prep your outfit the night before
This sounds like a total mum tip, but it really does work. Aim to do the bare minimum: laying out your outfit so it’s ready to be thrown on the next morning. Target comfy yet stylish materials like suede, or *faux* wool. We’re proud to proclaim that our carbon-fibre heated jackets are vegan friendly, and we have animals model for us, not as material.
Bring some music into your life
You might be the person who needs doof doof music to get you up and going, or you can be someone who likes to be gently whispered into consciousness. Either way, we’ve got you covered with these tracks to start your day. Have them playing in the background as you get ready as your personal morning soundtrack. We were lucky enough to have Nu-da's resident DJ, Andrea, cook up customised mixes specially made for our Nu-da readers!

Ease into your morning with our customised chill mix. Lift your mood, raise your vibrations, or just chill out with some good instrumental music.
More music to come!
Be reminded of your goals
Sometimes you need to be reminded of the big ‘why’ that gets you leaping out of bed. Is it seeing how proud your family will be at your graduation ceremony? Being able to show off your cute new shoes on campus? Or finally landing your dream job? Launch the world’s first heated jacket that follows fashion trends? (Sorry, taken!) Remind yourself with something as simple as a little sticky note or maybe a large and in charge wall poster with something that will reignite that intrinsic motivation to get up and get going.
Treat yourself to really great tea or coffee
You deserve a reward for rolling out of bed! Help yourself to a big cuppa to freshen up the senses. Try opting for green tea or black coffee for the healthier alternatives to the usual caramel and matcha frap, but whatever floats your boat! You’ll no longer need to clutch your coffee cup to warm up your hands. Nu-Da’s jackets uses three levels of warmth intensity at the push of the hidden button. The whole jacket heats up via carbon technology heating pads in the lining of each jacket, keeping your whole body, and not just your hands, warm!
Space Heaters are LIFE
These can be a godsend in when it’s just the sharp morning cold that is standing in your way. Just remember to turn them off when you leave the house! Quick hack: Our jackets can also be used an electric blanket (kind of, lol). Crank up its heat setting and lay it down on your lap and BAM! Your own portable and makeshift electric blanket.
When all else fails...
When you have to resort to rocking up in your pyjamas, at east chuck on a trench (try our 'Take it to reality
' trench or the 'Let it happen
') , spray yourself with perfume, and just say you’re channeling hobo-chic style circa the Olsen twins from 2011.
