MOTIVATION.


~MOTIVATION~
 
Now I wouldn't call myself the most motivated girl in the world, no I don't get out of bed every morning at 5.30am screeching a merry song ready to give life a kick in the bum, sometimes I don't want to exercise, only eat salad and live the most fulfilled life... but, to me you don't have to have the most perfectly construed plan to stay motivated and be successful. I find small things help me stay happy, help me stay on the straight and narrow and make me not want to scream into every pillow in sight. For me, motivation is all about staying happy, staying on a wave of happiness were you can literally achieve whatever you want to.
 
For me, staying on a wave of happiness and being motivated is down to extremely small, achievable tasks I try (and sometimes fail, lets be real here) to keep me on a good level of being content.
One being Routine, without routine I literally would crumble, I'm the girl that has to get out of bed every morning at the right time, have my lunch at the same time, even be in bed no later than 11am.. I feel this helps me because it keeps you on track and you think less, calm is always good! - With that I think Keeping a Calendar definitely motivates me to work hard. Seeing events you've planned right in front of you makes the days in-between count, it means you have to work for it, besides nothing in life is free, so working for these events definitely makes you work that little harder.
 
The most important thing for me to stay motivated is to stay off social media, wait let me elaborate..! Sometimes, and you all will probably agree with me, I've sent hours just staring at Twitter/Instagram/Whatever, refreshing and refreshing my time line, for no apart reason than being lazy. This then leads to me looking into other peoples lives, endlessly scrolling an Instagram account or Blog, just thinking to myself 'their blogs is flawless, what's the point in me even trying, ill never be that good' -This is the worst thing to do, I'm literally an endorser for blog love and inspiration, but if you overindulge it can serious knock your motivation. At this point put.the.phone.down. Social Media is an amazing tool, but too much of it can be the worst!
 
Anyway 800 millions words later, I think I've finished typing..
 
What are you ways to keep motivated, have you been on Social Media a *little* bit too much in one day?

  1. I love this post and completely agree. Routine is the thing that keeps me motivated and on track... Obviously some days I don't stick to this but for the most part I do!

  2. Girl YOUR BLOG IS FLAWLESS SHHHH ;) And yeah I agree, I always get so moody if I stare at amazing blogs for too long (like inthefrow for example) like, can't I have a Givenchy bag and go to the Maldives too please?! I find it really easy to lose motivation with anything; especially if I tell myself, you HAVE to do this, you HAVE to do that. Like it stops being fun, and I'm just like, meh Netflix is calling hahaha xxx

    1. Oh Lily you spoil me with your comments, do you know that, THANK YOU YOURE THE BESTEST! Omg I literally am nearly in tears at inthefrow's blog and HelloOctober, they're seriously Goddess' - Oh well, we'll be like that one day remember, in LA living the dream! (I'm not even joking;)) - Yeah I've started to just completely switch off my ipad/ phone etc when it gets too much, I don't want blogging to stop being fun, I love it too much at the moment for that to happen! xxx

    1. A detox from Social Media DEFINITELY puts things into perspective for me too, just going outside and seeing the world is so much more refreshing! xx
