Routines may be boring, but every successful Career Girl has one. Plus, let’s face it, a routine makes life easier for us. Being spontaneous from time to time is exciting, but for the most part having a routine keeps you on track for hitting your goals. It’s important first to determine what works best for you, so when it comes to creating a successful, productive routine you’ll have it nailed. 

1. The morning:

Creating a daily routine for yourself doesn’t have to be hard. Some of us have a full-time job, some are full-time students, and some are both. The busy Career Girl has a lot going on at all times, and this lifestyle will not work without a routine. So avoid the stress for later, by taking action now. Get organized girls, it’s time.

Do something for you Getting up early may seem awful, but once you’re up you can be surprised what you can get done. Be productive, work on one of your projects. It leaves you feeling productive and ready to kick ass. A little bit every morning adds up over the weeks, and before you know it you really are doing it all. 

Create A List You know how much Career Girl Daily loves a list. But you may want to even keep a journal in the morning to get your ideas on paper. It’s important to set goals for the day and see how fast you’ll be able to tick them off. 

Exercise Pick out a workout that fits you, or perhaps you wish to meditate for fifteen minutes. You’ll be energized, active and healthier!

2. The Afternoon:

Unlike your morning and evening routine, your afternoon routine is bound to switch up the most. Your afternoon routine should be embedded in staying focused, healthy, and rejuvenated. In order for your work to get done, you need to function and stay energized!

Be like the French Make the most out of your lunch hour! Get out of the office, sit on the grass, be out in the open. Switch off from work, call a friend, or my savior, reading. 

What next What’s the best way to tackle the rest of the day? Stay hydrated and make sure you are routinely nourishing your bodies. Stay motivated!

3. The Evening:

Creating an evening routine is a great way to closing the day and relaxing from a day of tasks and responsibilities. Whether you are getting into the swing of unwinding with herbal tea or playing with a facial mask, having an evening routine can seriously help you get a better nights sleep.  

Plan your meals Check out a couple of ideas here to give you a sense of which foods may work for you! Cook, actually cook. Take a look at some recipes that excite you, and experiment. Save yourself some money and make it into tomorrow’s lunch too. Or even plan your meals for the next day.

Bathe Get your butt in the bath, light some candles, grab your book and relax. Shut off with some peace and quiet.

Skincare Work on your skincare, and revamp your skin while you sleep – making sure you’re fresh for tomorrow.

Be prepared for tomorrow One of the things I’m rubbish at and lets my routine down is not preparing for the next day. Pack your bag the night before so you’re not running around the next morning.

      It can be hard to leave the office here, we love writing articles that much! But I do think it’s important to not only give your brain a break, but also your eyes. Its also a chance to go for a walk and keep active if you’re sat at a desk all day! Now that summers coming up, why not try having a little lunch at a park? Nice and relaxing but also a change in scenery! X
