How many of you strrruuggle to stay motivated on a goal that you’re just not that into? Show of hands? lol
Gurl I am so with you on that. I start off so damn strong, stay committed for the first 3 days then boom I just stop. Has this ever happened to you?
When it’s something I really want to do I am 100% in and I stay the course no.matter.what.
Give me a goal I’m far from excited about and yea I find ways to “forget” about it. In the end, I feel crappy that I just couldn’t commit to this one thing.
So if you’re like me and you struggle with staying motivated, I am going to give you this super easy tip to help you when you are unmotivated AF.
So my tip for when I want to stay motivated on a task is: I buy something I love to help.
Okay, have I lost you yet? Not life changing I know, but stick with me.
What I do is I purchase the item I need for that goal, but I make sure it’s something I would absolutely love using. In my head, it’s so pretty why the F wouldn’t I.
Writing has always brought me so much peace and I wanted to get back into that. Starting a journaling practice was the perfect way to help me on this front. The only issue, I knew I just couldn’t pick up any ol’ journal.
I’m huge on having items that help elevate my vibe and I’m all about keeping it there. Picking something that didn’t give me all the feels felt all kinds of wrong.
I took the time to find the perfect one and I just knew it was when I found it. I got myself a beautiful notebook with a badass quote. This is my daily reminder to Wake Up. Pray Up. Slay Up.
(both notebooks purchased from Homegoods)
Homegoods and Marshall’s are amazeballs for items like this. They have a great selection of pretty notebooks, pens, etc. for as cheap as $6.99. So you can get something you love without breaking the bank.
Now I have no issues picking up my journal and writing out my thoughts. It’s something I’ve grown to enjoy and it’s all to do with my pink and gold notebook.
I recently used this tip to help me drink more water. Drinking water has always been a struggle for me. I hate things that do not have a taste and yea, that’s water – silly I know.
Normally I tend to drink my coffee all morning aaannd drinking water tends falls to the wayside. Yes, I know I need it, but I struggle with making sure I get my daily ounces a day. So to help me out, I brought myself a big ass rose gold water bottle.
Can I have a moment to say how much I fucking love this bottle? Like for real I.LOVE.THIS.BOTTLE.
(purchased this from Charming Charlie’s)
Okay, I’m done.
But for real I love it so much I have been chugging away! It’s so big and pretty it gets my attention as a reminder to “drink your water”. I have noticed a huge increase in how much water I drink a day. I’m sleeping better, my skin is clearer and my overall health is just better. Who doesn’t want all of that?!
I love this tip so much and wanted to share with my diva tribe. Use this when you are lacking the motivation to help keep you motivated AF.
Sharing is caring! Comment below letting me know how you’re going to use this tip.
