Work on Getting Inspired
It's hard to find inspiration when we come home exhausted from work or school. As soon as we step into our homes, the race begins to help the kids with homework and ready for bed, study, and hopefully find some free time for ourselves.
It's because of the daily chaos in our lives that we have to make an effort and set aside 20 or 30 minutes to focus on our well-being. Something that helps me achieve my goals is to set up an inspiration board. Hang or tape one to your closet, home office, vanity mirror, or bathroom mirror, and add magazine articles and images that you believe will motivate you. Some of those images can include vacation destinations, pretty swimsuits, sandals, beach hats, beautiful cover-ups, and long maxi dresses you want to wear this Summer. The point is to get excited about what you are seeing on the board and to find inspiration in the positive images in order to start working on your mind and body.
Think how great you will feel when you finally get to go on that long-awaited vacation and when you wear that fabulous swimsuit you gifted yourself for working hard! I find that once you get inspired, take the first step, and develop a routine, everything starts to fall into place and you will feel much better.
