Five Ways to Transition from the School Year to Summer

10:06 PM

Ladies, I am wiped out!  School is finally over but I'm struggling to get motivated with my summer plans.  I have a list to accomplish- cleaning out closets, going through clothes but I just can't get motivated.

I finally realized that I wasn't giving myself  a break so I'm going to spend a few days laying around watching TV before digging in.  I want to take this opportunity to remind YOU to do that as well because I bet you are forgetting to take care of yourself too!

Here are some things you can do to transition from the school year to the summer!

1- Take a day or two (or three or six) to recoup from the school year.  Teacher's work hard and the end of the year is especially exhausting.  So put your to do list down, pick up remote control/easy read book/pool float and let go for a couple days.

2- Make a list of the things you want to accomplish.  Organize closets,clean out the garage... whatever it is, write it all down! You can prioritize what needs done and pick the ones that are the most important.

3- Schedule times to relax FIRST and then fill in your to do list.  Everyone relaxes in different ways.  Read a book.  Watch TV.  Take a nap.  Float aimlessly in the pool.  It's your choice!

4- Put a limit to the amount of time you work.  School will be starting back soon- really soon.  If you want to start the year fresh, you need to take it easy during the summer.  This is why it is important to write down your goals and pick the most important ones.

5-Stop comparing yourself to everyone else.  Maybe your TBFF only needed 2 days to recover and you need 4.  It's OK!  Take care of yourself FIRST and let everything else fall into place.

Following these 5 steps will help insure that you are rested and relaxed and ready to start back to school at the end of the summer.

I would LOVE to hear how you like to relax.  Drop a line in the comments to share!
