When it comes to motivation, I have to clearly admit that it's no easy task. With so many things to do during the day, it's easy to get lost in your mind and forget about your key focus. But don't stress, I've put together a few tips and tricks to get your day going again.
Like everyone says, #butfirstcoffee! It's seriously the perfect way to start the day. Drinking something warm to get the blood circulating can actually promote your brain to be more active.
So sit back, sip up and savour the moment!
On days when I feel unmotivated, I sit down with my cup of coffee and I #setgoals. Pick up your favourite pen and paper and start noting down the things you want to do and accomplish. Although you may not be able to get everything done on the list but at least you have it organized. It makes a huge difference when it's on paper vs. in your mind because when you get things done one at a time and you start crossing it off your list, it's a great sense of accomplishment.
Ok, now #tablesituation. In those moments when you sit down by your table and you look at the computer screen filled with a blank white image, "yes, you're clearly unmotivated!" Key objects that I like to have on my table is my favourite #stationery. Especially stationery with your certain style and uniqueness. I like to have with me a notepad that says "Dear Self..." clearly to remind me all the time of my goals, a blank note pad that I use for sketching of ideas, and candles to keep me relaxed. I find that when my table situation is right, it always sets the perfect mood.
Last but not least, #stayinspired. It's easier said then to be done but I like to have quotes and pictures of my favourite style laying around to keep me motivated. I always use social medias like Pinterest and Instagram to browse through beautiful portfolios and keep myself inspired. So staying motivated isn't too hard as long as you set your goals, stay inspired, do things that you love.
A kind mention to our wonderful stationery that always provides us with functionality, inspiration and simple beauty. Without you, I don't think I can keep myself motivated. Thank you to Papyrus* for sending me beautiful stationery, that I honestly love and can't get enough of.
Happy Stationery Day!
