This week is Delray Beach Fashion Week and it is certainly going to be one of those crazy weeks. In addition, to running my business and watching my toddler we have six events in just five days, two of which I will be hosting. It is going to get a little hectic, so I wanted to share my top five tips for surviving a busy week.
Tip 1: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee
Now, when I say coffee I mean LOTS of coffee. If you know me then you know I am a coffee lover. A cup of coffee in the morning provides the perfect energy boost and when I feel that mid-day crash coffee gets me through the rest of my day. If you don't drink coffee, I don’t know how you do it, but I suggest drinking tea or even something with a little sugar.
Tip 2: Hydrate
Water is so important, especially after all that caffeine. You must stay hydrated! I actually don’t like water. I know it’s awful! If you are like me, I suggest adding some fresh berries for a little flavor. I can say the one kind of water I can drink with no problem is Lacroix water.
Tip 3: Snacks
Eating three meals a day is important, but in my opinion snacks are equally important. My daughter Stella agrees! Some good choices are carrots and humus, dried fruit, and my two favorites are dried chickpeas and Live Love Pop Popcorn. If you haven’t tried them you definitely should! I have to admit sometimes I eat my kid’s snacks! Opppsss!
Tips 4: Breathe
Stress is almost inevitable during a busy week. Breathing deeply allows you to stay focused. I like to block out a few moments during the day to take a few deep breaths, or even better get a little fresh air. A few minutes can make a huge difference. This helps reset my mind and stay focused.
Tip 5: Find That Perfect Outfit
Find a fierce outfit that you feel comfortable in. For each day of the week make a list of everything you need to accomplish. Then plan your outfit accordingly and ahead of time. This will save you lots of time! When you walk out of your door in the morning you should feel absolutely amazing and ready to tackle your day.
Busy weeks can certainly feel overwhelming. Trust me, I know! Stay organized and positive. I promise you can do it! I hope these few tips will help you survive your busy weeks!
