Hey guys, happy Monday!
Now that summer is over & school is back, I wanted to give you some tips for getting your life together!! My life is definitely a hot mess, but I like to pretend that I have it all under control lol. Going back to classes is actually kinda fun, because I get to pick out a new planner & plan out my life! So if you’re anything like me & you enjoy color coordinating every aspect of your life, this post is for you!! Don’t be a hot girl bummer 😉
1.) Get a planner
I have always been a planner. Writing out my to-do lists every day & the top three things I need to accomplish every week help me to stay on track & have a purpose. I like to be productive, so seeing my week laid out in front of me is the first step to success!
2.) Write out all deadlines
During syllabus week, I make sure to write out the deadlines for all of my classes. This helps me plan out my weeks & see what I have coming up, what I need to focus on, etc.
3.) Meal Prep/Plan
I like to spend time on the weekends cutting up vegetables & washing fruit so everything is just ready to throw together during the week! I always come home from a long day starving & the last thing I wanna do is put together a meal. Having healthy ingredients ready to go makes it easy to make a healthy choice for dinner or a snack. Not to mention time saving!!
4.) Clean your space
Cleaning is honestly therapeutic for me & a great way to de-stress & feel like I have my life together. I usually block out one day on the weekend to get my life in order. Having a clean space helps me stay focused & productive.
No matter what, I try to fit in a workout every day during the week & once on the weekends. It’s true that working out releases endorphins & just helps you feel good. If I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, a workout gives me time to just think & focus on myself. Even just going for a walk will help you feel better & be disciplined.
6.) Have a side hustle
This blog is my creative outlet & gives me a something to work for other than classes. Having a purpose other than just waking up, going to class/work, & doing homework is so important for overall health & happiness.
7.) Take care of yourself!!
Do a face mask, cook a meal, try a new workout class, go shopping… whatever your version of self care is, do it!! When you feel your best, you’ll do your best.
