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”
Do you ever feel like you could use a motivational push throughout the week? Like somewhere between Monday and Friday you lose zeal or drive in your routine? Me too. It’s why I find myself needing a bit of a kick-in-the-butt sometimes.
There are so many cool ways available now-a-days to acquire that life-giving, energy-pumping, motivation when you need it, so I wanted to share the avenues I use with you guys! While originally, I was going to just make it a single post, I thought I’d hold a motivational series on the blog that would take four Mondays (this being the first) to complete.
I think the internet is an awesome gift when you really know how to use it to benefit you. Every Monday, for the next three Monday’s, I want to share with you guys my favorite motivational media outlets. This week, I want to cover podcasts. Next week it’ll be YouTube channels, the following week social media accounts, and the week after that it’ll be playlists (’cause music is a pretty influential part of life, right?).
I’m super excited to share them with you guys! At the end of every post, I’m going to ask that you guys contribute to the series by sharing your favorite motivational __(insert media outlet here)_’s as well! I’m always up for listening/watching motivational things and you never know who else you could be helping with your suggestion.
Today, being day one of the series, I wanted to cover motivational podcasts. Continue reading “Motivational Podcasts Perfect for Mundane Days”
It wasn’t until I came back from Dallas last Thursday evening that I realized the only pictures of the trip I shared via social media were of food and food places. I figured that I should probably disclose on the blog that I did not solely visit Dallas for the food… even though that still would’ve made an awesome trip considering the restaurants we found!
We adventured to a few really neat places while in the area, but I wanted to share all of that in another post. This post is all about the amazing vegan food we got to try during our trip! If you are ever in Dallas, be sure to check out these places. You won’t be disappointed! Continue reading “While in Dallas,TX: 4 Vegan-Friendly Eateries You Need to Try”
Those of you who’ve been following this blog since day one might have already noticed, but I removed the travel category from the blog for a while. I published two travel related articles but for the life of me, I could not think of anything else to post. I had been such a homebody and felt dreadfully uninspired, so as a result, I deleted the category with the intent to add it back once I started to travel a bit more.
One of my goals for 2018 was to travel more (to at least four different places to be exact…).
Today, as I am writing this, I am in Continue reading “On the Road Again: A Brief Update”
There are so many beautiful things about each season. You can take advantage of each in their own markedly different way. Fall has its warm color palette, pumpkin spice latte’s, and brown leaves scattered all about. Winter has its hot chocolate, thick coats, and classic christmas movies. Summer has its beach days, amusement park visits, and mosquito bites.
Spring has its bountiful assortment of colorful flowers, outdoor lunches, and heat just hot enough to keep you warm accompanied by a chill cool enough to erase the need for a handheld fan. Can you tell I’ve been enjoying the outdoors lately? Continue reading “Spring Bucket List: 20 Things to Do Before Spring Ends”
If you find yourself wondering where the time goes, look no further than right here. This post is for you friend. Time flys. I would add “when you’re having fun” but lately, it seems like it flys no matter what you’re doing. Time-management can be hard to master when you don’t have some sort of an agenda to stick to. Then again, agenda’s can be ignored and we can end up in the same confused place we were before.
Finding ways to manage your time better is all about Continue reading “5 Ways to Manage Your Time Better”
