My Top 5 Tips on How to Stay Motivated

DO you ever struggle with staying motivated?

Motivation is a tricky thing. Especially when you are overwhelmed with a million things to do and have no idea how to get it all done!

I struggle with staying motivated all the time. I may appear as though I have endless energy but that is not always the case.

I have to work hard at staying motivated on certain things in order to get them done.

The things that a struggle with to stay motivated on are finishing my work, working out, eating healthy, making time for my husband and blogging.

These things may not seem like a lot but it’s hard to make sure you are giving a little bit of energy to everything without overwhelming yourself. And yes, at times I just don’t feel like doing anything, which is why I have to stay motivated.

So I came up with 5 easy tips to help you stay motived that really work:

USE A DAILY PLANNER! I plan out my weeks sometimes months in advance so that I know what I have to do at a specific time to stay on track.

USE AN HOURGLASS! ok this may sound like some crazy ancient thing, but it really works! I have an hourglass on my desk at work and I use it all the time to time myself to get things done efficiently. So, this is how it works, you turn the hourglass upside down and you do not stop working until your tasks are done or until the hourglass runs out. This helps keep you from distractions and helps you manage your time better. I do this with all my paperwork tasks at the office.

SET TIME BLOCKS FOR TASKS! This goes with the daily planner. I will portion off specific times of the day to complete certain tasks. So before work I block off 20mins to catch up on social media and blog stuff. Then, of course, at work I’m working and seeing patients, and then after work I have about 1 hour before my husband gets home. So durning that time I either blog again or work on instagram content. Then for 1 hour after that I cook/clean and then I have 1 hour to shower/prepare for the next day, then the rest of the night is to unwind and watch TV with my hubs.

SET TINY GOALS! I did this when I first started my blog. I would set tiny goals of things I wanted to achieve. I didn’t give myself a time frame, only cause I didn’t know what I was doing in the beginning. But I use the tiny goals motto to help me stay motivated in everything. Tiny goals are easier to reach and there is positive feedback quicker than large goals. So by setting small goals you are helping yourself stay more motivated through your journey. I especially do this with my healthy eating and workouts.

DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS! I wish someone told me this when I was younger, cause I have a really bad habit of doing it now. I constantly catch myself comparing myself to other girls and I get so discouraged and down about it. I have learned that by not comparing myself to others I stay much more motivated and in a positive mind frame overall. Of course, I will catch myself still doing it sometimes by saying, “wow I wish I had her body”, or “wow she is so photogenic”, or silly things like that. And to be honest that’s what social media does to us but you’re not helping anyone by comparing yourself to others. So I say, ignore others and stay focus on you!

So there you have it my top 5 tips on how to stay motivated on any task!

How to Make Amazing Pinterest Graphics to Increase your Site Traffic

Have you ever wondered how people make those gorgeous Pinterest graphics? Well, I used to, and finally I figured out the best way to create beautiful Pinterest graphics to help promote my content and my site. The best part is that I found a site to create all these amazing graphics online that is totally FREE!

Yup, that’s right you don’t need to pay a site or spend your hard earn money to promote your site on Pinterest. Just follow these steps and discover how easy and fun creating your own personal graphics can be.

These are easy and straight forward steps that are great for anyone.

So let’s get down to the details!

What is the name of the site: CANVA

Go to Canva.com and that will bring you to the home page, which looks like this:

Click on the design/ graphic you want. You can choose from pinterest graphic, youtube, banners, and so much more!

Once you click on the graphic you want, you will see this:

Then you can choose to select free pre-made designs or upload your own pictures and graphics. I normally upload my own pictures and then adjust them as needed for my desired look. Everything you need for design is on the far left side, including text, backgrounds, design graphics, and more.

Once you pick a picture, you will see this:

Then you can select the text option and insert any title or wording you would like, in addition to adjusting the font style and size. Another great design option you have is to adjust the transparency of the picture, if you prefer having the font laid over the picture for a more striking look.

Once your graphic is complete you will click in the top right corner to download:

You can choose to download the graphic as PNG or JPEG. Then save the graphic to your computer. Once you have the graphic saved you can upload it to Pinterest and add a link to a website or location that you want the viewer to be redirected to.

This is the final look:

Pretty easy, right!

This, of course, is just the basics of how to use the site and create designs. However, there is so much more you can  do on this site. I make all different kinds of graphics from collages for my site, to youtube thumbnails, to Pinterest graphics.

Here is a page with some of my past designs so that you can see the variety and design options.

How to Make the Perfect Instagram Story Cover Photos

So, as I’m sure you all know, Instagram now has the option to add instagram stories to your highlight reel. These highlighted stories stay on your profile page so people can look through old stories you’ve highlighted. The best thing about this, is you can categorize your stories now into whatever you want, style, decor, beauty, etc. It’s perfect for people who love posting stories and for viewers who want to look through specific stories. I love the idea of posting in categories cause now whenever I’m like, “oh what should I wear today…?”, I’ll just flip through my style stories for some inspiration! It’s like clothes shopping through your own closet.

Side-bar: does anyone remember Cher’s closet from Clueless where she looked through everything in her computer to see what the outfit looked like on her before wearing it? Well that is my style insta stories for me!! I swear its a great little tool.

Anyways, back on track. So you can look through everyone else’s categories too to get some inspiration as well.

Now it’s not necessary to create your own cover photo for your highlighted stories (instagram will just mark your first pic as your automatic cover photo), but for me and my OCD-like tendencies I prefer everything look the same. So creating a cover photo is a MUST!
