The glorification of “busy” is a real thing; it seems like everyone we know is trying to outdo each other with their jam-packed schedules. Women in college often not only have 18 hours of credits, but also a part-time job, two internships, and a social life that never stops. Luckily, we came up with the perfect day-to-day routine to keep your busy schedule manageable—so even when your life feels crazy, you’ll always have a solid foundation to fall back on. Keep reading for the perfect routine that will keep you feeling fresh, sane, and organized—no matter what.
the night before
A great routine starts with preparation. Make sure to wrap up any school assignments you’re working on, and prepare any meals you’ll need for the following day. Make sure you lay out your outfit and put any products you need to freshen up with in your purse so you’re ready to go as soon as you wake up. Put anything you need to bring with you next to your door to ensure you don’t forget in the morning!
Even if it only takes you 20 minutes to get ready, it’s always best to wake up a little earlier—an hour is a solid amount of time to get everything finished while still allowing you to get enough sleep. Once you’re up, a great way to start the day is meditation—take 10 minutes to clear your head and set your intention for the day. Then you still have 50 minutes to get ready, eat breakfast, and check your things to ensure you’re not forgetting anything for the day.
While it’s easy to ignore your body’s needs while you’re rushing around getting people coffee, give yourself 30 minutes to eat lunch and take a break. Once you’ve had some nutrients, take a moment to freshen up to get you through the rest of your day. Remember that beauty supplies you threw in your purse last night? You’ll be glad you didn’t forget them. Spritz your face with some rose water, wash your hands, and grab your Simply Summer’s Eve™ Cleansing Cloths for a quick refresher to knock out that groggy feeling that rolls around every afternoon.
You’re finally off work—sweet relief! Now head to the gym to sweat out your stress and get some of those endorphins you’re in desperate need of. Once you’re home, make sure to eat dinner and prepare everything again for the following morning. Then hop in the shower to relax and clean up before you head to bed. Light some candles, break out your deep conditioner, and pamper yourself with Simply Summer’s Eve™ Gentle Cleansing Wash to ensure you feel luxurious and fresh through the night and into the next morning.
