How to Get Motivated

FIVE FAVES FRIDAY is here once again and this time its all about how to get motivated!

The run up to Christmas is a busy time for crafters (not mention stressful!) and we could all do with a little motivation to get us over the daunting busy work load.So here is our favourite 5 ways to get motivated!

1.LISTS- I love a good list and as far as I’m concerned, lists can get you through anything and everything. At the beginning of every day, every week and every month, create a list of all the things you need and more importantly what you’d want to accomplish. It’s the best way to  get you going. The monthly list may make your work look daunting but breaking it down by days and weeks it means it’s a little more clearer, plus it feels great when you start crossing jobs off!

2. GET SOME SPACE- and I don’t mean abandon your work load. Where ever it is you work, think or create, you need to clear it. All of it. Your desk, studio or even your floor. Once you have a clean and clear environment, your mindset will become those things too.

3. LOOK FOR INSPIRATION- one of the best ways to do this is to create an ‘Ideas & Inspiration book’. What ever it is you do, this will help channel your way of thinking.

4.DRINK- plenty of water (and tea of course). Staying hydrated gives you the means to stay focused, and to stay focused means you’re getting stuff done.

5. “IF IT TAKES LESS THAN TEN MINUETS- DO IT NOW”.  We live by this at Roo’s Corner. I don’t know who said it first but its one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever read. It gets things done quickly. Often its the little things that pile up in the work load and this is the best way to get them ticked off.

Head over to the Roo’s Corner Shop to check out our notebooks to get those lists going, as well as our Ideas Sketch Book to help create that ideas & inspirations book!

I hope this helps you stay motivated. Good luck!
