I will be the first to admit that I get super lazy during the summertime. I think it all started when I was in grade school and found beauty in the fact that I didn’t have to get up for school, could sleep in as late as I wanted, and could do whatever I wanted during the day.

Even though I’m a working adult now, there’s still that part of me that wants to let loose whenever I can over the summer. I know a lot of people must feel the same way, as the summertime can make us feel rather unproductive.

Still, we have to get things done during the summertime and find a way to balance relaxation and rest with productivity. 

If you need tips for keeping your life and routine together while having summer fun, here are some summer productivity tips for you!

Plan your weeks in advance

I’ve always found it helpful to plan for my weeks and weekends during the summer as far in advance as possible. While it’s fun to do things on the fly and be spontaneous during the summer, you want to make sure that none of those things get in the way of the important parts of your routine, like work.

Every Sunday night this summer, sit down and write out some plans for both fun and productive things you want to get done during the week and schedule them accordingly. That way, you’ll be able to make time for everything.

Set some goals for the summer

A great way to stay productive during the summer is to set some small goals. Again, these can be for fun and productive things. For instance, one goal could be to go on a weekend vacation, and another could be to clean out your closet.
