Get Out of the Summertime Slump

Get Out of the Summertime Slump

After a long, relaxing summer of warm temps, leisurely days and weekend getaways, it can be hard to get back into routine of work or school. If you fell into the notorious “summertime slump” this year, don’t worry! Here are a few tips to help you increase your productivity and get you back on track just in time for the start of the school year:

Tidy Up

A cluttered home often leads to a cluttered mind. If you’re looking to add some productivity back into your life, start by tidying up your surroundings. Instead of trying to clean your entire apartment, focus on the most important room or the place you plan to spend the most time. Eliminate distractions around you and organize your space in a way that will benefit you and your new routine.

Create a Morning Routine

How you spend your morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Creating a productive and consistent morning routine is key to ensuring you keep your focus. Because everyone is different, there isn’t necessarily one morning routine that works for everyone. However, there are some key elements that are beneficial to everyone. Some common morning routine activities include drinking water, having a cup of coffee, hitting the gym, meditating or journaling. Whatever helps you feel motivated and energized, incorporate it into your morning!

Schedule Out Your Day

Another activity to incorporate in your morning routine is scheduling out your day. As you go about your morning routine, take some time to think about your schedule for the day and things you have to get done. Organize a list of to-dos starting with the most important task and finishing with the tasks you’d like to get done if there is time. This will help you to prioritize your day and make sure you get everything done.

Get Moving

While you may be familiar with the physical benefits of exercise, you may not know that it can also improve your mental capacity, concentration, memory and learning. In addition to the physical and mental benefits, setting aside time to excise creates a routine which in turn helps you to manage your time and feel more productive throughout the day. Exercise at home, sign up for a gym membership or better yet, attend a group exercise glass for a motivating social setting that will help you commit to your new routine.
