Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year full of food, laughter and quality time with your loved ones. I actually shut off this holiday for once and enjoyed my down time without the constant need to reach for my phone to update everything. It's been such a long time since I had some down time but I knew I needed it. Ever since my holiday back in November I've been slowing down and made sure everything that needed to be done was crossed off the list so I could start on a clean slate in 2018.
Since its the 1st January, I wanted to start off the new year with a post on motivation. You guys may have noticed that I have my periods of consistency and then I go on mini breaks. My creativity comes and goes and I try to make the most of it when it does spark in my head. I wanted to share some tips on how to stay motivated and how to accomplish your goals in 2018!
3 TIPS TO STAY MOTIVATED
1. Make lists. The more the better. This is my most efficient way of being motivated and staying organised. Write down what you need to do today, week or even the year. Bullet point some goals you want to achieve this year and remember nothing is out of reach if you work hard for it!
2.Create a vision board - cut out everything you wish to achieve and things that inspire you. Having it physically in front of you will motivate you even more. Fill it with public figures that inspire you, quotes or images! Or keep a pintrest board if you don't have the time to get crafty! Great for keeping it on you all the time to glance at if you're feeling a bit lost!
3. Surround yourself with positive energy - cut out toxic relationships out of your life and focus on the positive. You need to be in the right head space to achieve your goals. I've even gone a step further into investing in sage and palo santos to clean any negative energy in my home and travel with crystals.
I hope that this helps you a wee bit! I get so many messages asking about how I stay motivated so I thought that I would share my tips with you. But don't forget that its normal to have days when you aren't motivated and thats totally fine! Don't force anything as that will also reflect in your work and energy. Just keep peeking at your vision/pintrest board for that spark!
