Party for One

When I'm feeling completely unmotivated to do anything sometimes all it takes is one night for myself and one look at my vision board to get back on track. 

 A vision board is basically a board reflecting what you want to accomplish with words/pictures. For instance, mine has encouraging words/pictures about getting into shape--which is one of my more major goals. 
This was a relatively new idea to me that my friend Kaila introduced to me about two years ago. She made one about going to Europe or something like that and poof she went to Europe. (at least that's how I remember it in my head) Anyways...it's a pretty good way to stay motivated and keep your goals in front of you at all times.

Right now it's hanging in my room over my desk, so it's the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.




 I've been in a major funk--not wanting to do anything (at all) but sleep, my apartment is a wreck, and my head has been killing me. Definitely not motivated to check anything off of my 101 in 1001 list.
So I decided to take one night to do what I wanted. No cleaning. No grocery shopping. My to do list can wait. (did I just say that?)

So what did I do you ask? 
A bubble bath, movie, and Chinese food. 
Perfect for a party of one and just what the doctor ordered.

It's crazy how refreshed you can feel after doing just a few small things for yourself and I now see the importance of taking these little breaks and vow to do them more often. 
I already feel ten times better and might actually go to the gym and clean my apartment today (might)

Break out of your funk and do something for yourself..because I said so!
