Up and at 'em

Good morning! Does anyone else get the Sunday night blues . . . in anticipation of tackling another Monday morning? I sure do, but make sure I'm organized and ready to take on the week ahead. Here are a few tips that help me feel prepared.

Sunday night:
1. Pick out and lay out my outfit ahead of time (including shoes and accessories).
2. Pack my breakfast/lunch so I can grab it and go in the morning.
3. Pack my gym bag/dance bag/Junior League bag - whichever I may need for the following night.
4. Take time to relax - watch a movie, have a bubble bath or read a book.
5. Early to bed if possible to start off the week well rested.

Monday morning:
1. Upon arriving at work, review agenda for the week first thing.
2. Get coffee or tea. Caffeine is a must :)  (Delicious coffee recipe below)
3. Answer emails and review deadlines for the week.

All of these tips help me to ease back into the workweek so I am ready to tackle assignments, tasks, activities and a busy schedule. Organization and preparation is the key for me.

Monday morning coffee -

Iced raspberry chocolate cappucino
(recipe: perfectcoffees.com)
1/2 oz. chocolate syrup
1/2 oz. raspberry syrup
1/2 cup coffee, chilled
1 cup milk
*Combine ingredients and stir well. Pour over ice and enjoy!

when i have a particularly busy week i try and make a very detailed schedule on sunday night or monday morning, planning out specific time for all of the different assignments and responsibilities! i don't always follow the schedule perfectly, but just have it written down helps me stay focused!
