How to motivate yourself

Share this post/Save for Later:

When I was in high school, I took a class specifically on journaling and it was So Much Fun. Or at least it was for me since I’m a writer. But I suspect it will be fun for you too. Because everyone likes taking inventory of the little things and the big things, right? I haven’t kept a journal–other than a log of my yoga practice–since my son was born 15 years ago :). So when I stumbled upon the 52 Lists Project book, a year of weekly journaling inspiration by Moorea Seal, I thought it would be one way to inspire both me and you, dear reader, to reflect.

List the Things That Motivate You

  1. Yoga
  2. Meditation
  3. Espresso
  4. Music
  5. the Color Pink
  6. Mani/Pedis
  7. A good book
  8. a fridge full of food ready to be made into meals, like pizza dough, bread, cheese, veggies, meat

I include a photo of my handwritten list because I need handwriting practice! I spend much of my life on a keyboard these days whether laptop or iphone. There is nothing so precious to me as handwriting on cards and notes from loved ones who’ve passed. So I want to keep my hand in it, so to speak.
