I believe music has a way of influencing people so markedly, that our mood tends to mirror the tone of what we listen to the most. Everything from the tempo, to the notes, to the way the singer is belting out the words translates a certain energy and that energy is capable of having an irresistable impact on us. On me especially.
If I feel that the day is slow and I’m struggling to stay awake, the only solution (other than a big cup of coffee) that I know will have an immediate impact on me is blaring some feel-good, life-giving music. Somedays it helps to have a coffee in hand with the music blaring.
Considering that we are on the final installment of the Motivational Munday’s series, I wanted to end on a note (no pun intended (; )that would really resonate and to me, there is nothing that resonates with people more than good music. Below I’ve listed a few motivating playlists to enjoy when you need to put a little more pep in your step. Continue reading “Motivational Playlists Perfect for Mundane Days”
Patience is a hard practice. We don’t really have to wait for much on a day-to-day basis anymore, discounting traffic and long lines. If we have a collegiate worthy question, all we have to do is search google and then bam. Collegiate worthy answer. Am I complaining? No, not at all. If anything, I’m the first one to ask for fast responses. Waiting is not necessarily a strong suit of mine, but it is something that I’ve learned to enjoy. Continue reading “Enjoying the Wait”
Choosing to get up and drench yourself in sweat is not an easy decision. Excuses tend to abound when a workout seems too draining to endure. “Y’know I’m just not feeling it today” or “I just don’t know if I have the time” tend to be my top two. I’m starting to realize though that lack of workout motivation doesn’t always stem from a loss of focus or even a preference to laziness. It can stem from a loss of purpose.
I don’t always feel unhealthy. It is the lack of feeling unhealthy that can make it so easy to hit the snooze button on getting active. The way I see it though, we are all given two options. We can either make progress or make excuses. This is my attempt at making progress.
I wanted to make a post for the days in which eating potato chips in place of a workout convincingly appears to be a harmless act. If you can’t bare the thought of lifting a weight or doing a squat, but you know deep down that you should do both of those things and more, welcome to your personal “why” board. Here are 15 reasons you should workout today: Continue reading “15 Reasons to Workout Today”
Social media has an undeniably large impact on our world today. It has changed the way that we communicate and keep up with one another in both beneficial and not-so-beneficial ways. When we scroll through our social media feeds, we are consuming potential future thoughts. It is for this reason that it is really important to carefully govern how we use it. Continue reading “Motivational Social Media Accounts Perfect for Mundane Days”

It is one of the most talked about beauty products on the market right now. Kush Mascara is raising eyebrows due to its usage of a very interesting ingredient: Weed. I have to applaud the marketing team behind Kush Mascara for their brilliant usage of typical references to weed in the context of a mascara (i.e. “One hit for high volume” and it’s release on 4/20). It certainly ignited my curiosity about the product and just how closely it would measure up to its claims of bringing on the volume.
I was not apart of the lucky few who actually received their Kush VoxBox on 4/20 but it did not take away my excitement upon receiving it. Before I dive into the review and talk about my experience thus far, I’d like to answer two dominating questions you may or may not have thought of by now: Continue reading “Kush Mascara by Milk Makeup Review”
Being homeschooled throughout high school, I learned that sometimes the environment you work in can have an effect on how efficiently you operate. There were days when I woke up with this super productive, kick-butt attitude and the minute I started doing any load of work, boom. Energy gone. Just a few hours into the day and I’d be dragging my feet through the hours ahead of me.
If you work at home, you know the feeling. When you have complete control of your time and your workload, but no one around you, it’s easy to lose momentum. I started to turn to YouTube for “Work with Me” video’s to have a little motivation as I worked through my assignments and when I did, I ended up discovering channels that offered really neat, uplifting lifestyle videos: Continue reading “Motivational YouTube Channels Perfect for Mundane Days”
If you took a look at my Spotify, you’d see a billion different playlists. I probably make about three every month and they are the most random accumulation of songs. One day I’ll hear a really pretty wedding-worthy love song and that’ll inspire me to make a playlist of really pretty wedding-worthy songs. Then months go by and I still haven’t added to the playlist because how rarely do wedding-worthy songs actually come out?? Exactly. In the midst of the waiting, I’ll create other playlists that I add to more frequently. Each with its own general vibe.
As I was on the road to Dallas, I was flipping through radio stations (which I rarely listen to anymore) and stumbled on a few songs that I actually really like! Hence I just decided to place everything I heard that I liked in one “on the road” playlist: Continue reading “April Favorite’s Playlist”
