If you didn’t know, the month of November was a really rough one for me because sleep just wasn’t in my cards. It wasn’t that I didn’t have time to sleep, my body just refused to fall asleep. Lovely right? It had gotten so bad that I couldn’t remember what we did in class and I would always go straight back to bed after coming home for the day. And I don’t take naps.
The final straw for me was when it took me about four hours to fall asleep one night. When I got up the next morning I hopped on Instagram stories and asked for your help. I was going to test out melatonin, but found I didn’t need it after I started testing out a few of the tricks y’all provided me and that I’ve learned over the years.
Waking up in the morning isn’t difficult, it’s staying awake and ignoring the urge to crawl back into bed after you turn your alarm off that’s difficult. And that’s coming from a self-proclaimed morning person.
I think one of the big differences between morning people and night owls is that us morning peeps know all the secret ways to get our body and brain moving so that we don’t fall back asleep. But it’s not fair if just us morning people know those secrets! So I’m breaking the barrier and sharing seven things that can help you stay awake and get moving in the a.m.!
I used to live for the days I could go running in a sports bra and shorts. There’s just something so freeing about removing that one thin piece of clothing. I remember I would never want to put it back on after it took it off, because it feel so good to feel the breeze on my back and whipping past the bare skin of my stomach.
This was about two years ago. Now I would never dare run around my neighborhood (or the neighborhood over) with just a sports bra on. Why? Because I’d be embarrassed.

Did you know that this Thursday, June 8th, is National Best Friends Day? Well now you know.
In honor of this amazing holiday, I’m going to be sharing the idea of friend dates! I’ve also been wanting to share this since I talked about how I talked about self dates a few months ago. You guys loved that so much, especially the printable with examples, so I made another one just for you! Just keep scrolling and you can snag it!
So, what are friends dates?
Well, I feel like these are much more self explanatory and much more well known than self dates, but just for the sake of this post I’m going to flesh them out a bit!
