I ❤️ summer. It’s my favorite time of the year. I need it to relax and decompress.
I also use my summer to get my life together (i.e., mental health, home organization, getting ready for the next school year).
4 tips for a productive summer
Here are some tips that have helped me keep moving each day. I hope these are helpful to you too!
Get up early
I’m still getting up at my work day time because that is when I’m most productive. Added bonus–the sun is actually up when I get up!
I complete almost all of my do all my “to-do” list in the morning.
Plan your day
This has been a lifesaver for me. I write down personal to-dos and schedule things items in my planner.
I am much more productive when I have small goals written down. I love my Erin Condren planner (click here to get yours for $10 off!).
Exercise. Every day if possible.
Nothing makes me feel better about myself and life than a good workout.
That used to be jogging and walking, but after my heel injury, the bike and I are becoming good friends.
Drink. A lot.
And of course, I mean coffee (duh!). But tons of water too! I drink about 4 of these water bottles per day. That’s a gallon a day. Water (and caffeine) keeps me feeling great and helps me get work done.
Added bonus: extra bathroom trips to get me off my butt periodically.
