3 Little Things To Do If You're Struggling With Motivation...

So today I thought I'd do a little blog post about motivation. We struggle with it at times, but we're only human. I've found that these 3 things tend to help the most and I hope they'll help you too!

Music is a huge help to me when I'm feeling low and/or struggling with motivation. I highly recommend making some playlists for different moods, I have a happy playlist, sleep, chill etc. I always turn to music for whatever mood just because it's always there and 9/10 times it does help a lot. Music makes the world go round, right?

Avoiding social media like the plague, seriously. We all get scooped up by refreshing our Twitter feeds or liking photos on instagram. So avoiding social media whether it's for a few hours, a day or a couple weeks, it'll work wonders and help you to stop procrastinating and scrolling through your twitter feed aimlessly when you should be doing something more important. Also another tip is to delete the social media apps from your phone until you've done what you need to do, believe me having a break from social media is refreshing. 

If I'm tidying my house or just having a kind of chill day and getting on with writing blog posts etc, I like to like an uplifting candle or burn a nicely scented wax melt to try and boost my mood. I'm currently using and loving the helpmeorganics Help Me Bring Sunshine To A Cloudy Day* Candle which is from their Summer range and it smells so fresh and uplifting thanks to the blend of citronella, lemongrass, peppermint and spearmint. The name is a perfect fit, I think it smells kind of similar to the LUSH Sandstone soap (which is one of my faves). I also really like that all of their products they sell are organic, vegan-friendly and so affordable. The candle is also able to be used outside and is also an insect repellent, because of this you don't have to have the candle lit for as long as others - the estimated time is around about an hour and then the scent continues to linger hours after the candle has been blown out.
