The weekend is already over and a new week is ahead of us. I thought I would share some of my tips to recharge and be ready for the upcoming week. Although these are pretty obvious and straight forward it's made a difference once I decided to make changes in my lifestyle.

SLEEP - This is on top of my list because I find that when I don't get enough sleep I'm more likely to breakout and not have a productive day. My sleeping schedule has been irregular and I'm a light sleeper which has made it nearly impossible to get enough sleep.

EAT BREAKFAST- I don't like to eat breakfast but will force myself to eat at least an apple or fix myself a granola yogurt in the mornings. I never knew how important it was until I noticed a difference in my energy level and mood. I'm happier when I have something in my stomach or else I'm hangry (hungry + angry).

SET GOALS - I find myself being unproductive and lazy if I don't set goals for myself throughout the week. I set mental goals in my head but find it effective when I write it down on my planner or notepad on my desk. Some of my goals for this week is to go to bikram yoga, start a book, and to have another blog post up by the end of this week.

What do you do to recharge and prep for the upcoming week?

Love, Sharon


  1. I realized how important breakfast is too! I also drink a lot of cold water right when I wake up and I think it really helps me to wake up and reminds me to drink more water during the day :)

  2. Beautiful pics as always! What do you use to edit your pics and make your titles?
    Thank you,

  3. wow! You want to start a book! That's great! What would it be about? Comments relating to your post, I must agree that setting goals is essential for "recharging" your week because you know what you must do and once you have accomplished the list, you have a huge feeling of relief.

  4. oops sorry i meant start reading a book on my reading list :) one day i would like to write my own book though!

  5. thank you! i use photoshop for the titles and to edit :) x

  6. i should get in the habit of drinking water in the morning too :) thanks for the reminder! x
