Last week I shared some of my back to school advice here, and I mentioned that I was going to take a different approach to the whole back to school season in my next post. Well, here it is!
Hearing advice about the first day of school and how to stay on top of school work is useful, but after a while it gets repetitive! I’ll admit, I shared my own back to school advice in a previous blog post, but I think this post will be useful to a lot more of you. We all know how to stay organized and prepare for the first day back at school, but sometimes we need a little more…
I really don’t like seeing the summer come to an end, and I always make an extra special effort to do things that I love in September to make the whole transition back to school (or back to work, for some of you) a little less sad. I do things like making sure I get an early night, lighting my best smelling candle, and listening to my favorite music while taking a bath (sometimes I even whip out the Christmas music to cheer myself up if I’ve had a really hard day). It’s these little things that I do each day that I can look forward to after a draining day at school (I know that sounds a little dramatic, but school is hard!) that make the back to school season a little more bearable. That’s why I want to encourage all of you to have one thing planned for each day this September that will make you happy – a little treat that you can look forward to at the end of each day.
I’ve created a free downloadable calendar for Self Love September (yes, that’s what we’re calling this month!) that has one personal treat for you planned each day! Yes, you heard right, it’s FREE! All you have to do is click this link to find a month of fully-planned, luxurious self-appreciation activities just for you (not to mention the calendar is really cute as well, so you can print it out and stick it on your wall!)
Hopefully the activities I’ve planned give you something special to look forward to each evening and make going back to school/work a little more fun and exciting. Let me know if you download the calendar and keep up to date with it! I’ll be posting updates on my Instagram @Little.Miss.Expat so be sure to follow me on there to stay on track! Let me know what your favorite thing on the calendar is in the comments section.
See you next week,
