Finding the Joy in Your 9-5 Work Day

This summer I started my very first job in the corporate world! A summer internship was so desirable in theory, but being in it has taught me how easy it is for the 9-5 routine to get monotonous. Here are some of my favorite ways to find joy amidst my days working 9-5. 


WAKE UP EARLY 


The best way to start the day is by getting up EARLY, and practicing habits that make you feel your best. A 9-5 job is a lot of time spent doing tasks and being busy, you aren’t having much time to be present with yourself! That’s why I LOVE getting up a few hours earlier, going to a workout class, and having enough time to get ready in peace. Your morning is such a vital part of your day, so push yourself to make the most of it! 


WEAR A FUN OUTFIT 


Wearing a fun outfit is such a great way to add some color and joy into your days, especially during the bright summer months. It also helps make each day unique, even if you feel like your routine at work might be a little repetitive. Get creative, make pinterest boards, and have fun with your corporate girly outfits! 


GET OUTSIDE AND WALK ON YOUR BREAKS 


Summer Sun is truly the best, and being inside an office all day means you might not be seeing much of it. Be intentional with your breaks and commit to getting outside and off your devices, even if it's just a few minutes! 


MAKE THE MOST OF THE NIGHT 


Once you're off of work, push yourself to make the most of the night! Cook a yummy dinner, facetime your friends and go on a long walk, pick up a book, and do any type of self care that recharges your battery and makes you feel your best!
