I’ve had an amazing start to what I hope to be an amazing year! (Which is why I’ve seriously neglected y’all, my beautiful readers.)
Let me start out with what I’m doing this weekend…hehehe.
Okay..I’m styling an editorial submission for a Chinese magazine called Studio Today!!
“But Jess, how did you get into this??”
Well, about a month ago, I started apprenticing under a professional make up artist. Now we are doing weddings, editorials, beauty blogs, seminars and fashion shows.
I’m really stoked and have stayed super busy, but check us out here!!
Healthwise, I’ve probably been a bit better. Right now, I’m mildly anemic so I get tired super fast and very easily. Hittin’ up that CT Scan soon, but in the meantime, here’s some ideas to help YOU combat fatigue.
1. DRINK WATER.
Yep..that’s right. that clear stuff that really has no taste. Drink it.
2. Get on a sleeping schedule
We are creatures of habit. Maintaining an internal schedule will help your body properly recoup from the day’s havoc and create a pattern of awakeness for your body to follow.
3. Eat better,
Gotta have McDonalds? Try a salad instead of a quarter pounder
Walking around the mall and carrying lots of shopping bags counts, folks
5. Laugh often.
Takes more muscles to frown, hence using more energy to be upset.
6. Get 8 hours of sleep
Chances are, if you’re having to hit the coffee pot every day at 3 pm, you’re not getting enough rest at nighttime.
7. Prepare for the next day the night before
Set out your outfit for the next day. Also, prepare your lunch (if you’re like me and take it with you.) It will save SOOOOOOO much time. I can actually sleep an extra 20 minutes because I do this.
8. Cut the caffeine
Try not to have any caffeine after 5pm. Caffeine is a stimulant and will make your body want to be active and alert.
9. Clear your mind
Stop worrying about things a good hour before you go to bed. Racing thoughts will keep you from sleeping
Take a hot bath, read a good book, watch a movie…do something to relax and calm you.
