Today is a windy, rainy sorta bad weather day that is the one thing all commuters like myself hate! However, today I am home for the day and I was thinking of all the things I can do today and thought I might share it with you fellow bloggers!

 

  1. SLEEP IN! (Let’s be real, we all need it!)
  2. Spend that morning till noon reading all those blogs you’ve been meaning to catch up on!
  3. Read a magazine and enjoy that simple quiet time with some music~
  4. Watch some YouTube videos to stay up-to-date with your favourite YouTuber’s!
  5. Read a couple of chapters from that book you’ve been meaning to catch up on
  6. Appreciate the fact that you are still super cozy and comfy in those pajama’s and snuggled up in bed
  7. Make yourself a hot cup of hot cocoa with whip cream or a refreshing vanilla ice cream smoothie because you deserve it
  8. Hide yourself away and dedicate some time to write in your journal or draw in your sketchbook
  9. Look through images for some inspiration and make collages if you are like me; always in need of inspiration!
  10. Waste away some hours in the middle of the day to give yourself a well-needed nap
  11. Watch some movies you’ve been telling yourself to see! (I finally saw Coraline last night!)
  12. Go through your closet and make some brand-new outfit combinations
  13. Then re-vamp your room in big or small ways!~
  14. Create that bucket list you’ve been meaning to tackle on!
  15. Keep away from the interacting with people today and take photo’s or do whatever let’s you have fun!
  16. Reflect on your life; are you doing everything you want to do?

How do you spend your lazy day? =)

If there’s one thing I’ve been doing this summer is BEING OCCUPIED.  Doing something, rather than nothing.

I’ve always been one to say, there should always be at LEAST one highlight in your day, every day. Even if it’s THE most simplest thing ever.

I try to do something every day, whether it’s cleaning, drawing, ect. Some of the things I have done so far ranged from:

  • making a blog! (finally something that uses my computer time effectively!)
  • making a nacho sauce (looked weird but tasted good!)
  • creating an OOTD video spontaneously
  • take photos all day
  • research a specific topic
  • read as much in one day
  • create outfits
  • create personal projects
  • started making up designs to revamp my room
  • clean/Organize my room/workspace

Sure I try to go out with my friends, see family or go out to dinners in between my work schedule, but it’s nice to dedicate some sort of “thing” per day. I feel more accomplished and it feels like I’m dedicating myself to something new every day.

I feel like I’m much better now at motivating myself to get up and do stuff compared to a few years back where I would clean my room at a snails pace because my mother made me.

Thinking back on a lot of my previous summers when I wasn’t working, I really wasted them! I would literally be on the computer ALL DAY.

I relied on my mom when she had her vacation time because she was always motivated to be doing something no matter what! She hated the idea of any of her vacation time being wasted by being in the house, and I love her for that! I can see that she’s really rubbed off on me!

HAPPY SUMMER!
