I feel like I’ve failed miserably lately. I haven’t been keeping up with everything I need to do, and I haven’t even used my free time well because I’ve been stressed over not being productive. (For the most part, though I have found some peaceful and quiet moments.)
I know those thoughts don’t help. We have to focus on the right things. There are many ways to do this, but sometimes it does take being intentional and also making a point of being grateful for the things we do have and have accomplished.
I haven’t read blog posts from all you lovely people in a while, and I really miss it. Sometimes we need to just slow down and take a break, and sometimes we need to try something a little more serious, like a schedule.
I hate schedules, but I love routines. I’m trying to incorporate aspects of both and I hope it helps, we’ll see where this goes. I think if I start setting a timer for myself and getting the things done that a dread doing first off, then I’ll have that weight off my shoulders to go on into the rest of the day, instead of stalling because of the dreaded project that I don’t want to face.
I like to keep my life at least semi-organized. I know I function best that way, but sometimes a bunch of little things slip through the cracks. Things like my bullet journal have really helped with that.
What methods do you use to help motivate yourself and stay organized? I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
