This week is, unfortunately, my last week as a full-time employee before I start my last year at University. I absolutely love working full-time, and I know I will thrive even more in the future as a worker than as a student. But I digress... Today I wanted to share my tips to get back into the swing of things. Fall is the best time to start a new routine, whether it's for work, school, or a new chapter in your life.
Save time to relax beforehand
Before getting back into the swing of things, I always need a self-care weekend to relax and recharge. It's the perfect time to do a Sunday spa session or clean your surroundings to make you feel better.
Save a day to finish all the tasks you were meant to finish ages ago
By that I mean ironing your clothes, bringing a pair of boots to the cobbler or clothes to get dry cleaned, getting a haircut, giving clothes to charity shops, etc. Once you'll be back into your new routine, you might not have time for these tasks so it's better to tick them off your list before they pile up to collect dust on your Reminder app.
Read the news
As I grow older, I realize the importance of staying informed about the world around us and the topics we find interesting. I recently got a subscription to The Times London (mostly to follow Dolly Alderton's new column in the Sunday Times Style but also) to read about the situation in England, especially with the Brexit and the immigration laws before I move there in a few months. I also think it's important to follow the news from different news sources to get varies opinions. And reading the news in the morning will be a better use of my time than scrolling on Twitter...
Plan your week ahead
Whether you love organization or not, you have to agree that planning your week ahead makes the week go by much more smoothly. You can do meal prep, outfit planning the night before, organize your budget, make lists, etc. Writing things down will help you keep track of everything.
