It’s quickie Friday! I’ll bet most of you are deep into the Holiday Hustle, as Deborah @ Confessionsofamotherrunnercalls it. I’m not, but the last couple of weeks were a bit tiring with Gizmo and that inherent stress. He may not be completely back to normal; it could be his new normal — but he’s a whole lot better!
So how do you motivate yourself to stay active when you’re crazy busy, you’re tired and the couch is calling, and the sun is nowhere to be found?
Surround yourself with motivation
I like to pick up inexpensive motivational saying tchotkes and have them around the house where I’ll see them often. Homegoods, TJMaxx, and Marshalls are all good sources.
You are what you surround yourself with
The more positive thoughts we have, the more positive our outlook on life. So why not surround yourself with positive affirmations?
There are lots of preprinted cards you can pick up, too. I got Louse Hay’s Power Thought Cards on Amazon here (Amazon Affiliate link). When I remember, I change out my cards.
Love is all around
I struck out at Homegoods looking for love-themed inspiration, but I found a couple of plaques at Marshalls.
Do you have a favorite positive saying/affirmation?
Do you try to accentuate the positive?
How do you motivate yourself when you’re feeling unmotivated?
What you dream about, you bring about
