    6 Ways to Make Mondays More Manageable

    It's Monday again. In fact, it's the last Monday in September. It's hard to believe that we've only got one week left this month. I know most people dread Mondays. They hate them! I love them, and let me tell you why...

    Mondays are my day to reset for the week. I enjoy the weekends, but I like to have a little structure and routine in my days. Here are a few things that help me:


    1. High-protein breakfast: Eat breakfast and make sure you get some good protein. I have been drinking Premier Protein shakes from Costco. They're easy to grab and chug while I'm getting ready or taking the kids to school. 1
    2. Take vitamins: At minimum, I take a good multi-vitamin, vitamin D, calcium, Vitamin B. I try to get as many of these in gummy form as possible. It makes my 10-year-old self happy! Kirkland Signature Adult Multivitamin Gummies: 320 Gummies
    3. Drink water: You really do feel better when you wake up and drink a glass of water. It gets your blood flowing and clears your mind. Image result for glass of water
    4. It's all about the music: Find your best music and play it while you get ready. Play it in the car. Find a new song over the weekend and wait until Monday to play it on repeat. I go onto the top 50 songs on Spotify and pick one or a couple to add to my playlist. Music can really pump you up! Image result for spotify
    5. Essential oils: Let me preface this next one by saying, I am not one of those alternative health people, but I do use essential oils quite a bit because I like the way they smell. I find several blends that lift me up and energize me. I diffuse those throughout the house and I'll put them on a pad in my car to smell while driving around. I use the calming oils if I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed. I use the energizing oils if I am feeling lethergic and tired. Image result for amazon essential oils 
    6. Make lists: As you start your day, go through your calendar and look at what the week looks like. It helps me to get a mental picture of what I'm going to have to conquer this week. Then, I make to-do lists. I use a simple to-do list app on my phone and plug in everything I'm hoping to get done that day. The app I like most is called Checklist One. I use it because it can have multiple lists with sublists and notes, and you can customize the colors. 

    These are the things that help me make my Mondays more manageable. I hope these 6 tips help you too! Happy Monday everyone!

    I've Got a Gift for You

    So this little website of mine has slowly been growing over the last 2 years. Many of you are good friends who have supported my crazy dream by asking me to create cards and invitations for you. Many of you have told your family and friends about me. Some of you have reposted my cards or pinned my work on Pinterest. Some of you follow me on Facebook while others follow me on Twitter. It's awesome to check the traffic stats on my blog and see them climb...slowly, but steadily. For anyone who has ever supported Charming Bliss in any way, I want to say THANK YOU!

    I'm delving into something new. Something I've thought about for a while. I'm trying my hand at designing iPhone wallpaper. I created my first one today and I want to give it to you for FREE. Click on this link to download the Pumpkins iPhone Wallpaper. I created this for the iPhone 4S and older. If you do end up downloading this wallpaper, please leave me a comment. I'd love to see who uses it. Depending on the popularity, I may offer more free wallpapers from time to time. Enjoy!
