Every morning I wake up at 5:30am.
From that point forward I shower, go to work, run errands, and then veg out blogging while watching TV.
My weekends are as routine with Sunday dinners at Nanny’s, time with GodSon, and The Viking’s dry cleaners.
Something’s got to give because frankly, I’m bored as hell with this vicious cycle I fell into!!
Recently I decided that I’m too vibrant of a person to fall into a mundane routine.
That’s when I laid out my life, my goals, and my passions to plan out a new schedule that I’m happy with.
This was surprisingly tough. When you’re accustom to ways it’s difficult to smoothly transition into change.
You all know what I did right? Unsurprisingly, I made a life changing list! …and this time literally…
10 Ways Jax Pulled Herself Out of a Routine Funk!
10. Summer Class
Instead of going home and vegging out, I should make use out of my time.
I quickly signed up for a business communications class. It only meets twice a week. Perfect for the summer!
Hello college credits, brain work outs, and possibly meeting new people!!
I recently signed up for a year’s membership to Planet Fitness.
I am going to try to get my little butt over there at least three times a week for an hour.
Hello hot bodied men, healthy endorphins, and cute workout clothes!!
I already have three trips planned to add some crazy to my life!
One for August, September, and October.
Hello memories, seeing friends, and visiting new places!!
My statement pieces have always been big rings, funky belts, and stunner shades!
I’m in the process of adding new, unique accessories to my everyday style.
Hello chunky earrings, sparkly nail polish, and eye popping clutches!!
6. Friend Dates
Instead of going home and first cooking myself a gourmet meal at 6:30pm, I’m going to expand my budget!
I’m allowed to pick one weeknight and have an inexpensive friend dinner date with one of my girls.
Hello yummy food, good laughs, and an inviting, friendly atmosphere!
I have an awful habit of pretending everything’s peachy when it’s not. It’s deceiving others and myself.
I’m going to start recognizing when thing’s make me unhappy and work on changing it.
Hello less stress, a happier life, and far less fake smiles!!
4. Living Social
I signed up for a free living social account.
Peaches and I are going to scout out different things to do at least once a month through this website.
Hello city adventures, fun memories, and meeting new people!!
3. Glamour Challenge
Every month Glamour magazine challenges it’s reader to bring an issue somewhere unique!
No more will I be reading Glamour on my couch! I’m taking on the challenge and reading in hip places.
Hello beach reading, outdoor café reading, or actually going to a local park!!
When a girl is making life changes, the first thing to always change is the hair!
I got rid of my “sweet girl” hair. It has been darkened, given a blunt bang, and chemically straightened.
Hello edgy look, many compliments, and quick confidence boost!!
1. Saying Yes
When I get in a funk I tend to turn down opportunities to veg out on my couch.
No more will I be declining invitations and making up lame excuses.
Hello new adventures, exciting activities, and forming stronger bonds with people!!
If you could change your daily routine, how would you do it?
