Thoughts on Motivation


Do you ever have trouble getting motivated? Recently I was in the biggest funk ever and I couldn't seem to snap out of it. I couldn't get motivated to exercise, read, blog, make things, write letters, - pretty much anything. I read every blog post I could find that promised to tell me how to get my motivation back and they're all the same and none of them really helped.

I decided to make this post to try to motivate myself, and share a few ideas of how I got myself out of this funk
  1. Write it down - Simple. I find I have too many thoughts, "oh man I have to do this this AND this but then this thing is more important then them all" and I tend to get overwhelmed and then I don't do anything. I think writing everything down and then prioritising them is the best way to begin
  2. Don't multitask - This I am guilty of soooo bad! I get distracted easily and start a new book, or a new crafty thing and forget what I was doing before. I just have to finish the thing that I am doing, then it is DONE!
  3. Get up earlier - Sleeping in is amazing, but when I wake up at 11am I've missed a good chunk of the day and the cats are all starving to death. I find I get so many things done if I am up at 7 or even 8!  
  4. Don't feel guilty - If you do have a bad day and don't do anything you needed to do, don't stress and make yourself feel bad. Personally, this makes things ten times worse and I am more likely to remain unmotivated. However if I say "oh well, I didn't do this but tomorrow is a new day I can do it then!", I find that I do feel better!  
  5. Do something fun - Listen to music, sing or dance, cheer yourself up and it might just make you feel good enough to do something on your to do list! 
Of course, these are just things that work for me, everyone is different. I'd love to hear how you motivate yourself!

Happy Mail November Box

I believe I've spoken before about how much I love A Beautiful Mess, and I was so excited when I found out they were opening their own store that included a monthly stationery subscription box! I instantly subscribed to it and nearly jumped for joy when it finally arrived. Here's what was inside!
A beautiful ombre print for my wall
A small goals notepad, I am a sucker for a to do list
Gorgeous postcards
And even more gorgeous cards! I'll never have to buy a birthday card again
A selection of envelopes - I love the black and white one
And a bunch of tags and pretty stickers
For only $17 a month INCLUDING shipping (seriously, shipping is $2!!) you get way more than what you pay for. I can't wait to see what they send in the December package! Check out their store here
