We all want summer break to last forever. Transitioning from summer vacation to the sweet chaos of back to school can put us into a funk. I’d like to share a few things that I do to stay motivated and looking forward to the school day. These little motivators will be simple and can be easily incorporated into any morning routine.
There are a few things that help me mentally prepare to switch gears. I’m going to share with you three ways that I get ready during those first few weeks of school. I would also love to hear your tips in the comments below!
I was just watching a friend’s Instagram story where she was asking for tips on how to incorporate exercise into their morning routine once school begins. Her school district is beginning school at an earlier time this year. This prompted me to share a tip that has been a huge time-saver for me. That time-saving trick was to do leg squats in the shower.
I love to get an adrenaline rush in the morning. It wakes me up and keeps me alert. However, getting ready for the day can be chaotic for anyone. That is why I am a huge fan on saving time anywhere that I can. Leg squats are an effective way to get that quick and powerful workout in the morning.
There is something about a new scent that is refreshing and invigorating. When I start getting overwhelmed with the back to school season, I like to switch out my all natural soap bars. I recently changed over to the White Tea and Ginger (not affiliated with LimeLife) and am loving the energizing scent that this combination provides.
I enjoy finding out the colors for the upcoming fall season. I feel like they always seem to get it right with the fall colors. They typically give the warm, inviting, and cozy vibes.
I like to incorporate the latest autumn colors into my makeup routine. With 5 kids, my makeup routine is real simple : Eyebrows, mascara, foundation, and lip color. Thanks to professional makeup, I can be super basic and still look alright.
Do you know the struggle?
These are just some of the weird ways that I motivate myself. How about you? Is there something that helps with the transitioning from summer. Does it take time for you to get back into a school schedule?
I would also love to hear about your morning routines or what you do to transition from summer break. I’m sure we all could benefit from hearing different ways to get prepared.
