I absolutely love my days off uni. Mainly because I get a little bit of a lie-in but also because they are probably some of my most productive days. I have a goal to stay a little busier on my free days because once I spend one lazy Tuesday in bed watching Peaky Blinders then I want to spend every other day doing the same thing. Does anyone else get a little like this? While I like to get a lot done on these days, I also like to take a slowly and not put too much pressure on myself.
HAVE AN EASY MORNING
As I mentioned before, I like a good lie-in on my days off. I also like a nice, slow morning. I might get up and do a nice relaxing yoga flow or have a morning of journaling. On the whole, I pretty much allow my mornings to be my free time to just do whatever I feel like doing. The reason I like a nice, easy morning is that when I overload myself with tasks in the morning I feel a little worn out earlier in the day.
GET THE CHORES DONE
After my easy morning, I like to crack on with my to-do list. Usually, I’ll get my cleaning done first so that’s putting a clothes wash on, hoovering, wiping the surfaces etc. For me, tidying up is the first task because I can’t concentrate properly when my space is a mess. It’s also probably the quickest thing to do so it gets it out of the way. After the room is tidy then I move on to the real tasks.
ENSURE MY UNI WORK IS UP TO DATE
Next, I get on a little bit of uni work. I like to check that all of my notes are up to date and that I’ve clarified anything that I wasn’t too sure about. Some days, I might also do a bit of assignment work if I have something due soon. I find it’s really beneficial to get ahead with assignments so that it’s not stressful when deadlines come along all at once.
START DOING SOME BLOG WORK
Once my bedroom is clean and I know that university has been dealt with I start working on my blog. This can mean doing a few things such as taking/editing photos, writing out posts or doing some social media planning. I like to get these things to do with my blog done on my days off so that when I have my days in uni I don’t have to stress about my blog.
DO SOME MEAL PREP/PLANNING
This is the day where I like to get my meals together. I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to plan ahead with my meals. I often eat crappy foods because I can’t be bothered to cook. However, planning and prepping my meals makes it a lot easier to be healthy. I don’t go out of my way to meal prep I just make a bigger amount of what it is I’m already having for dinner and lunch.
HAVE A RELAX
After a day of getting organised and smashing to-do lists I like to have a bit of a wind-down in the afternoon. I might do some self-care bits or watch a few more episodes of Peaky Blinders because I’m obsessed with it at the moment.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope this post can help you plan your free days. Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
