Summer time is here, no more waking up early, dragging your self out of bed to go to class or worse, work. During the summer time I tend to get lazy and mornings when I don’t have to wake up early I lay around and sleep until 12! That’s half my day gone right there! This summer I’ve decided to be productive and I’ve compiled a list of ways for you all to do it too.
Set Your alarm and wake up early
That’s right, keep that alarm on each morning. I wake up usually around 7am, 6 am when I have work, and I make sure to get up and start my day. Sleeping in really makes you lazy and you end up wasting all this time that you could be doing something better.
Pick up a hobby (blogging?)
Summer is the perfect time to pick up a hobby you’ve always wanted to do, but never had time for in the school year. My goal for this summer was to really work hard on my blog and post daily as well as start my Etsy store and keep it up and running. So far these things keep me pretty busy during the day and I don’t get bored of them!
make a to do list
It’s summer and you may think a to do list is a little to drastic, however it will keep your time organized and I promise it’ll make a difference. Need to do laundry, grocery shop, but still want to go out to a movie, and need to go to the bank? You might forget one of those things so keeping a to do list will make sure everything gets done in the day.
Don’t get rid of your planner just yet
Classes may be over, but that planner can still can come in handy. Use it to write those to do lists, keep track of work dates, and other fun things you’ve planned. I plan out my blog post ideas, my Etsy store updates (https://www.etsy.com/shop/CatchyCanvas?ref=hdr_shop_menu), work, and even pool dates.
schedule something fun and something beneficial
Having something fun to do each day really makes it easier for you to get up and get out. I suggest adding something beneficial to you each day as well though. Whether it be a little time for yoga and meditation or the time to have a nice bubble bath with your favorite Lush products.
I hope these quick and easy tips on how to be productive over the summer will make easier for you all to stay focused and accomplish a lot this summer.
