Good Morning Guys! How was your weekend? Mine was a little nuts. Like, getting lost in Boston at midnight by myself with a dead phone nuts. Thankfully the rest of the weekend was not as eventful. But that’s life right? One day you are going full speed and the next you are an auto pilot. So today I am sharing with you a couple tips to help simplify your life, and help make those crazy days a little less.. crazy.
01 Set monthly goals – but just three of them. Decide what you realistically want to accomplish and work towards those goals. You will feel AMAZING when you check them off your list at the end of the month.
02 Declutter. How amazing does it feel to come home after a long day to a clean and organized house? Now trust me, most weeks by Friday my apartment looks a little less organized and a little more like a bomb went off – but what if you spent 20 minutes every day after work organizing one little area? Hang those clothes up instead of just throwing them on the chair (you know you have one of those chairs!), do the dishes, clean up the cats toys that he took out of his basket. Your atmosphere affects your mood, so imagine how much better you would feel after a quick organizing sesh.
03 Unsubscribe from unwanted emails. How much do you hate waking up to 100 emails only to find out 90% of them are from groupon or Nordstrom? Take a day and go through and unsubscribe from all those unwanted emails. Or, you can use a website like unroll.me and they will take care of it for you.
04 Meal Prep. Guys, this has seriously become a lifesaver for me. Not only because I am trying to eat healthier during the week, but because it saves me so much time. My schedule is different all the time and I never know what time I will actually make it home, so pre-portioning and pre-planning my meals is a life saver.
05 Slow down. Seriously guys, I know this is obvious and self explanatory but how many of us actually take some time out of our busy lives to relax and do something for ourselves. Whether it is having a cup of coffee while reading your favorite blogs or listening to your favorite podcasts, re watching the hills for the hundredth time, taking a relaxing bubble bath, or watching the bachelorette with a glass of rose and a bowl of boom chika pop popcorm (tonight!).
