Happy Monday! This summer, there’s so much going on and so little time to stop and think. Its hard to keep any routine going, whether that be exercising, writing in a journal, or something else, when there’s so much fun stuff to do. I can’t tell you the last time I actually worked out and yesterday I ate like crap at a wedding (Chick Fil A nugget trays…I mean, how could I resist). Sometimes, I remember not working out and eating unhealthy foods and I get super insecure and start to feel a little bad. Or there’s a day when I don’t have plans and I feel stuck. Or I wake up in the morning after staying up late and I’m just not a huge fan of anything sunny and happy that day. I’m composed a list of things to help you feed guuuud no matter the season.
1. A killer playlist.
Forreal. Music feeds the soul, and nothing is better than driving in the sun with the windows down and your favorite song blaring. My music taste goes across the board. Right now, I’m loving remixes, Taylor Swift (as always), and MGMT – because who ISN’T obsessed with Electric Feel?
For more sweet sounds, take a look at this playlist:
2. Catch up with friends.
This season is the perfect time to get together with the girl you had a class with in high school (and never really got to know), or the friend that went to college out-of-state, or a family member that’s in town for a short while. Find a cool, new restaurant near you and make some plans!
3. Make a list.
I. Looooove. Lists. If the summer days seem long and you find yourself getting kinda bored, make a to do list. Even if the items on the list aren’t serious and are just for fun – like printing out new pics to hang on your wall, writing a letter to a friend, or painting a canvas – you’ll feel good and you might have a cute new piece of decor to hang 🙂
4. Find inspiring quotes.
I love quotes and I love Pinterest. Combine the two by searching for words that make you smile and keeping them close, like on a piece of paper in your wallet or tucked into jacket pockets.
5. Dress up.
Even if you don’t have a lot to do one day, get up, take a shower, do your hair, and put on makeup. Put on cute clothes, and see how much better you feel! Getting ready and looking your best is such a self-confidence booster. Who cares if you’re just running errands or taking the dog to the park? You’ll look dang good for yourself while doing it! And that’s all that really matters, right?
Speaking of looking good, I’m participating in my first ever giveaway!! One of you lovely readers could win a $60.00 gift card to Sephora, home of all things beauty and glam. Enter by following and interacting with bloggers below, and good luck! 🙂
