Tips and Tricks to Stay Motivated.

I always have so many big plans and goals set for myself at the beginning of the year, but halfway through my motivation tends to be waning. It’s not that I don’t want to accomplish all of those things anymore, but sometime I just end up feeling burnt out and like I need a break. The problem with that is, I then take a break, and then lose any and all momentum I had. Once I lose motivation, it is hard for me to pick back up where I left off and I’m left feeling discouraged.

Easy ways to boost your creativity!

Keeping a Positivity Journal.

In my Loving Yourself post, I mentioned keeping a positivity journal, and how therapeutic it has been for me. Throughout my year of blogging I have mentioned journaling several times in different posts, and I’ve talked about how I keep separate journals for different things. I have a poetry journal I started for a creative writing class, a journal where I write stream of conscious summaries of my day, and if I am angry or upset, I write about that in a folder on Google Docs, because hearing the clanking of the keys as I angrily type is actually quite… View Post
