Motivational Monday #17

Welcome back to Motivational Monday and welcome to March!

After being sick for a month and a half and not going to the gym, I have been feeling tired and sluggish.So what do I do to get motivated again??? Do a blog post (duh)!

I always feel that when you do so little for so long, its so easy to fall into the "do nothing routine". This routine is seriously one of the hardest ones to break. I find it easy to also find negativity in this routine. Whether that be a bad mood, negative body image, or bad eating.

This weekend I was able to do some organization of unpacked boxes (yes we moved in October...dont judge me!) and found it very enjoyable. On Saturday morning, I set out to find some pull out drawers for our bathroom. Since the cupboards are pretty narrow I wanted to find something that could hold a good amount of things, allowed things to be on top and also pulled out. I found just what I was looking for at Wal-Mart. Once I got home, I decided it was time to try and tackle some of those pesky boxes. Once those things started flying out of the box, I was on a roll! To actually be doing something with my hands and enjoying it, was amazing. And not only that, I get to see my actual work every time I open the bathroom closet. When starting a new or simple task that you may have been putting off for some time and then actually finishing it makes you feel...accomplished.

So this week (and this month) I am looking forward to trying new tasks and cant wait to see what I accomplish :)

What are some tasks that you find that you put off?
What gets you in the mood to finally tackle those tasks?
Do you have any favorite organizational methods or containers?
