Yes, it’s devastating that summer is over, but let’s look at the positives. September is just as good, if not better than January for a fresh, new start. Here are 5 changes to make now to be more organised, healthier and happier in your life and in school….
Get Up Earlier
Rolling out of bed at the last possible moment is so last year. Set your alarm that little bit earlier and get up as soon as the alarm goes. No hitting the snooze button! Take the extra time in the morning to do something you enjoy, like reading or catching up on Snapchat. Relax with a cup of tea or try having some hot water with lemon and honey. On that note..
Start with a good breakfast. It really is the most important meal of the day, your mom was not lying to you. If you’re not a breakfast person we have some great ideas coming up. Continue on the rest of your day by trying to work in some more fruit and vegetables into your meals and snacks. And try set yourself a goal of drinking at least 2-3 litres of water every day.
Find a New Hobby
Take up a new hobby or join a new group. The new school year is the perfect time to make new friends. There should be lots of local teams recruiting at this time of year. Or try a new class such as yoga or Barre which is a mix of ballet and pilates. If sport isn’t your thing look at something to bring out your creative side like sewing or calligraphy with the Nib + Ink book. Or embrace your inner child. We have become obsessed with adult colouring books such as The Enchanted Forest. It’s such a relaxing pastime and works wonders for the mind, trust us!
Get Into A Routine
Now is the time to get into a new routine. Whether it’s a study routine, a daily routine or a workout routine. Make the commitment now and start working towards it. Plan out your day in a diary or a notebook and stick to it. The first few days you might be tempted to let it slide, but stick to it.
Becoming an organised person is #goals. Sort everything out and it will cut down on stress and time-wasting. Clean out your bag and get new folders in the Euro Shop. Get into the habit of packing your bag the night before that way you’re not stressed and you won’t forget something important. The same goes for your room. Get it in order. Even committing to doing 10 minutes tidying everyday will go a long way. Also deal with the mess that is your makeup. Keep your everyday makeup in one easy to reach section and then tidy the rest of your stash away. Her Clutter Boxes are the bees knees!
