Leeds, UK
This past week I've been feeling so tired - no matter how many hours of sleep I'm managing to cram in or sheep I'm counting. So, I decided to take on the challenge of finding a solution to this problem. I mean, It's always a shock to the system on a Monday morning, trying to get your mind into work mode from a relaxing weekend and find some motivation. But, when you haven't snapped out of it by Wednesday? It's time to look for some advice - so here's what I've discovered....

1. Try to plan ahead. Ok, so I know this can be difficult, but on those days when you're absolutely knackered, knowing that you've got a few less things on your plate to worry about because you may have done them a few days in advance, seriously saves your back. For example, on a Friday I find I'm most focused at work because you've made it to the end of the week, what I tend to do is take on any things that are needed to be done for Monday / Tuesday - result? Less stress. 

PS. How blooming gorgeous is this dupe Chloe bag? It's from Zara, which you can see here for £25.99. 

2. Make lists. This in a way can relate to the above point, but I find making lists so helpful. I'll make a list of things I need to do the next day and tick them off when it comes to each goal. This is super useful on a morning, it helps to trigger my memory and remind me what I need to be getting on with. 

3. Put the phone down and go to sleep! I really need to start taking this advice more it seriously helps make a massive difference. I'm always just on my phone aimlessly watching videos of Panda's falling about or scrolling into the depth's of Instagram. In reality, I've found when I put my phone down as soon as I get in bed, I have a better nights' sleep - therefore - more awake the next day. 

4. There's a reason why breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I never used to eat Breakfast a few years ago, but now I can't go without having it! It gives me that much needed fuel and energy to get me through the morning. I usually eat just some Weetabix with honey and fruit, or if I'm feeling lazy some Belvita breakfast biscuits - I'm not a coffee drinker (shock I know) so food and drinking plenty of water is needed for me! Also, don't drink that Redbull sitting there in next door's corner shop. You'll crash and burn. Thank me later.

5. Make sure you switch off. I'm always on the go. Whether that's at work or blogging. But I've found a way to balance it lately, by limiting blogging tasks (e.g. shooting) to the weekends and switching off on evenings through the week. It also helps to schedule posts in advance or fire off work emails ready for responses to come back on Monday. Knowing you're ready for the week ahead, you can take the weekend to relax, lay in bed till midday or binge watch Netflix. Whatever takes your fancy!

You need to make time for yourself, as I mentioned in my last personal post about what I've learnt in the past 22 years, which you can find here.

  1. I definitely need to stop scrolling through my phone before bed! It's something I am so guilty of, and it makes me so tired the next day. xx
