Night Routine

img_1510

It’s been one of my goals to try to stick to a nightly routine this fall. I’ve had to be more diligent about allocating my time at night for being productive and also relaxing before the next day. I’m usually really tired when I get home, but there are obviously still important things to get done: eat dinner, homework, shower, work on my blog…..sleep! Sticking to a routine has really helped me to stay on track.

Eat dinner: I always have to eat dinner somewhat early or else I’m too tired and lazy to be productive. I usually just make a simple salad with a balsamic vinegar/olive oil/pepper mixture for dressing or hummus and pita chips. 

Blog/Homework: I then usually light a candle and work on anything I have to do for my blog – I try to take photographs on the weekends or through-out the day time, so I stick to writing at night. I also take some time to go through social media and either update it or see what I’ve missed throughout the day! I’m not the best at this at all – but I’ve tried to limit my social media time to this time only at night so I can actually unwind before going to sleep later. I also work on homework and school projects – this is when I schedule all of my meetings for school/extracurricular activities.

Shower: I then jump into the shower/moisturize my body/comb out my hair etc. 

Make a list: After showering, I make a to-do list for the next day. I’m slightly obsessed with making lists of almost anything, and this is a type of list I make every day so that I stay organized and on task. It’s been one of the most helpful things I’ve done when it comes to juggling multiple priorities.

Make breakfast & prepare: I very quickly complete the following: I make my breakfast for the next day (I usually have two hard boiled eggs or overnight oats). I then get my clothes and bag ready for the next day so my mornings run smoother. I like to get stuff done at night so I have as little as possible to do in the mornings. 

TV: I then watch TV or I just go straight to sleep. I’ve just started getting into the Netflix series Stranger Things. It’s really good and a little scary, but I’m hooked now. Besides texting, I really try to stay off my phone at this time so I can enjoy watching TV and go to sleep right after.

Thoughts

Hey guys! These three things have been on my mind a lot as of lately, especially in a time (my senior year of college) that is going to bring about so much change. I’ve been stressed out recently, trying to figure out exactly what I want to do for the first few years of my life post-graduation. It’s been kind of daunting, but I know that these are going to be some of the best years ever! Here’s what I’ve been thinking: 

Realize that you can change your life, whether big or small: Something that has been super powerful for me lately is the idea that I can change the things around me. Sometimes it’s really easy to get stuck right where you are and not really like what is happening in your life, but it’s so freeing to realize that you really can change everything around you with a bit of effort. Rewind to earlier this year around spring-time, and I was frustrated with how I was doing in school, I absolutely hated my part time job at a restaurant, and I had no idea what kind of internship I wanted for the summer/how I was going to achieve anything great. I had this epiphany: I wanted to work in fashion and I was going to set goals for myself. I ended up making a goal that I would get a summer internship in fashion and get a new retail job and worked extremely hard toward those goals. I ended up meeting both of them by the end of the semester and it was the best feeling ever. I had hated my current situation, so instead of just moping, I set goals and I got up and did something about it! 

Let other people talk and really listen to what they have to say: This one is honestly a hard one for me, because I feel like I’m a pretty passionate person and get heated really easily if I don’t agree with someone. Lately, I’ve been really working on trying to hear people out and really think about what they have to say, whether I agree with them or not. I find that if anything, it helps to build my personal perspective even more. Instead of trying to only think of a comeback or what I’m going to say, it’s important to really hear people for what they are saying.  

Figure out your passions + work toward them: It took me a while, but I definitely know what I’m passionate about: fashion, design, interiors, people, writing, marketing, pr. It’s good to have some known spectrum of what you are interested in and want to do. Once you know that, you can start making goals and working toward what you want, even if it’s only baby steps at first. I have so many thoughts and projects that I want to start working on at this time and in the future, and I could not be more excited about them. 

Thanks so much for reading, I hope everyone is having a great week and that this post was helpful in some way!
