Hey Loves! I wanted to kick this week off with a little positivity and encouragement, so I gathered a couple of the most effective tips I’ve found that keep me inspired on the days I just don’t feel like doing anything. For you college gals starting school this week, you’re going to kick ass this semester just keep pushing! I hope this post gets you a little pumped for the coming months.
This is SO important you guys!! It is also super fun to make. This is the part where you get super creative and make a gallery of all of your wants
in life. Such as your dream apartment, car, job, vacation etc. You gather all of those images that you picture while daydreaming, and put them in a format that you can look at whenever you want. I recommend putting this somewhere you can see everyday, such as your office, living area or desktop background. I want you to remind yourself of the lifestyle you plan on reaching. That way, if you get into those “I don’t want to do anything” kind of days, you have your vision board to remind you why you should. Personally, I use Pinterest as one of my dream boards. You can check it out right over here
Organize Your Living & Working Area
This is also super effective. If your working area is a scattered mess, your head will be too. Don’t believe me? Try it. Clean your working area from top to bottom, no clutter, dust or items that don’t belong. No more of that. Try this for a couple weeks and tell me it doesn’t make a difference. Your working area should be organized, clean, neat, and even cute to keep you inspired. Put some pictures up and candles to make it feel homier along with anything else that makes you happy to look at.
In other words, treat yo self. If you remained within your budget, buy yourself that cute sweater with the money left over. Spent long hours working one night? Get some wine and watch your favorite TV show. Finally finished that project? Get take out! It doesn’t have something HUGE. Just something that reminds yourself you are deserve to be rewarded for whatever you’re doing because you are doing an awesome job.
If you are constantly working and forgetting to acknowledge all the long hours put in, it can become very easy to feel uninspired and drained. So,I encourage you to try this out from now on.
Watch Who Your Surroundings Are
This one might be the hardest, yet one of the most important ones, so I have to address it. You see, who we surround ourselves with is a huge determining factor of our own behavior (thank you social psychology). If those around you are constantly negative, putting themselves or you down, talking bad about others, not supporting you (you get the point) It can become pretty toxic. You need people who lift you up and remind you of all the good there is to appreciate. You want them to radiate their love and happiness upon you. Yes, we all have bad days and get gloomy from time to time, its completely expected actually. However, its important to find the good and make the best of every day. While some do, others find all the negative there is to find in a situation. And this is never healthy.
Change Your routine
I love doing this! I used to find comfort in doing the same ole thing every single day. But then realized I was getting bored and very discouraged . Comfort isn’t always energizing. There is no denying we are drawn to novelty. Why is it we get so excited for our first day on the job even if the last one was less workload? Because its something new! Why were we excited to go back to school even if it meant no longer sleeping in? Because we wanted change. Okay, you get the point. Change is good! It keeps things interesting. I am not saying make drastic changes, let them be simple, yet enough for you to notice them.
- Changing your workout routines
- Waking up 15 mins earlier to make a yummy breakfast, rather than plain cereal
- Pick out your outfit the night before
- Change up how you make your coffee every morning
