Well, it's that time of year again. It's time to set our clocks back an hour. I truly love the fall, all the beautiful colored leaves, and the chilly weather. However, I do not love it getting dark at 5PM. The days seem so short! If you feel this way, here are a few tips to make the most of these shorter fall days!
1. Wake up earlier! I know this sounds silly and is just common sense, but it helps. Waking up earlier will give you more time in your day, and you can also get a few things done on your to-do list for the day, so you won't have to do them later that night. I had "cleaning out my closet" on my to-do list forever. I had so many pieces of clothing that I never wear, and a few staple pieces of Woolx that I wanted to replace everything with. I finally recently woke up early enough and completed this task, and when I got home later that night, it felt amazing not to have to conquer that big chore after a long day of work. Doing this will free up some time for you to relax and soak the evening in later on!
2. Make the most of your weekends and days off! On my days off, relaxing is the FIRST thing on my list. I don't want to clean, I don't want to run errands, I just want to chill out. However, these days are the perfect time to make some amazing memories and make the best of these shorter days! Instead of using the entire weekend to "veg" out on the couch, or do chores and run errands, designate one of the two days for a day of fun! Go for a hike, hangout with friends, checkout that local brewery you've been eyeing, etc. These activities will leave your days feeling very fulfilled! And don't forget to wear your Woolx. We have options that would be great to wear for any of these weekend adventures!
3. Lastly, create a routine for yourself! Now that the days feel shorter, the last thing you want to do is waste time! Make sure to create a morning and night routine to make your days easier. For example, in the mornings, I shower, pack my lunch for the day, prepare myself some breakfast, take care of the animals, and leave for work. In the evenings, when I get home from work, I take care of the animals, clean the house a little, make dinner, pick out my outfit for work the next day (it's always Woolx pieces, of course), and then relax and watch tv! Having the same routine every day helps to save time and get your everyday tasks done more quickly, thus giving you more free time in the end!
I hope you find these little tips and tricks useful! And don't forget to invest in some Woolx, so when you are outside enjoying the beautiful fall and winter weather, you can stay cozy and warm!
