I love me a good all black outfit, not only are they SUPER easy to pull together but they make you feel so slim. All black outfits are classic and with the a few accessories you can put your own personal touch on them. If I am ever in a hurry, an all black outfit is my go to. I have actually been wearing this outfit like crazy lately. If I need a more relaxed look I just switch my heels for THESE mules. They are gucci dupes and SO affordable.
You might not have noticed, but today’s post is up just a little later than normal. I had a major Monday morning fail but we are back on track and back to business.
Monday’s are always a struggle for me. It is SO hard to get back into the groove of things after you have had a few days off. For the longest time I would struggle SO hard to get my life together on Monday’s and honestly it would only set me up to be less productive during the rest of the week. I started implementing a few changes to help prepare me for a new week it has made a huge difference in my productivity and well my sanity. Here are a few tips to help get your week going and how to make Monday feel less like a Monday.
1. Plan out your week on Sundays. Every Sunday night I sit down with my planner for about 20-30 minutes and start plugging in appointments, meetings, and to-do’s into my calendar. I am old school and keep a paper calendar. I actually have two planners that I use and have finally found a system that works for me. Id be more than happy to share a planning post with you all if you’d like.
2. Get household chores taken care of during the weekend. When you get home from a busy day, the LAST thing you want to think about is all the chores you need to get done around the house. I like to take early Saturday mornings to get things like laundry, cleaning, and grocery store runs done and over with so I don’t have to deal with it throughout the week.
3. Plan out an outfit or two. I always like to have an outfit or two ready to go in my closet incase I wakeup late or time gets away from me in the mornings. It would be ideal to plan your outfit ahead each night but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. Having an outfit ready to go is so conveinent because all you have to do is grab it and throw it on versus look through your closet for something to wear.
4. Set alarm 10-15 min earlier. I always try to sleep until the last possible second. This girl loves to sleep. Not giving myself enough time in the mornings was my main issue. I would always underestimate how long it took me to get ready, I would end up leaving behind schedule and ALWAYS ended up late to wherever I was going. I started giving myself plenty of time in the AM and now my mornings don’t feel as rushed.
Adding these small changes into my routine has been a game changer. I feel like I start my day much more relaxed and my week overall feels so much more organized and productive.
I hope you all enjoyed today’s post. What are some things that you do to get your week started? How do you stay organized and productive. I’d LOVE to hear from you so feel free to leave a comment below.
