Getting Back Into the Swing of Things: 5 Tips to Transition Back to the Daily Grind

It’s hard to accept the fact that summer has come to an end. No more relaxing by the beach, dinners on the patio, taking day trips to explore new places. September means the kids are back to school, you’re stuck in traffic driving to work, and your energy level is in the tank. But September is also the perfect time to get back into a routine and focus on self-care. Here are some tips to make the transition from vacation mode back to reality a breeze:

  1. Commit and be Positive. In order to make a change and start your new routine, you have to fully commit yourself. Give yourself a pep talk—tell yourself how determined you are to get back to a healthy daily routine. Accept that it might not be easy or straightforward, but be confident that, with positive thinking, you can eliminate any self-doubt and continue moving towards your goal.
  2. Start Small. Don’t set yourself up for failure by trying to change your entire routine all at once. Start small and focus on forming good habits that are attainable and realistic. It may take some time for your new routine to feel normal, so by easing in to it you are less likely to lose motivation. You’ll also begin to collect little “wins,” which will inspire you to stay on the right path!
  3. Set Your Schedule. Chances are you have a lot of stuff going on in your life. Using a planner or calendar is a great way to stay organized and reduce stress. Put all of your activities on paper (or into a smartphone app) in a way that works for you. Make sure to schedule time for exercise and self-care activities!
  4. Be Flexible. As you get more settled into your routine, it’s important to remain flexible and let things evolve over time. Be understanding that the real world might not always care about your schedule. To overcome this, it’s important to be flexible—if something isn’t working for you, change it!
  5. Have Fun! Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to stop having fun! Part of your self-care should be finding time to enjoy yourself. So, no matter how busy you are, add fun to your daily schedule and allow for flexibility in your routine to spring for spontaneous adventures!
