Always take action

Hey Bloggers!

I just wanted to share with you a quote that gives me motivation most days,

Always take action.

The more you take action, the more you will align with the intentions you have in your head. You need to go into action to be motivated. You won’t get it unless you truely want it.

The part where it says, you won’t get it unless you truely want it, really motivates me. Because often I try to stick to my comfort zone which is sitting on the couch watching YouTube, and I don’t do the things that I need to do or the things I truely want to do because I either have a lack of motivation or I’m worried what people are going to think of me. So now I keep this quote in my head to help me get through the day to be more motivated on the things I want to do.

I hope this has helped someone.

Love, Emily X

How to stop Procrastinating

Hey Bloggers,

Today I thought I’d share with you tips that help me stop procrastinating.

Tip 1# the first thing I like to do is if I’m needing a little of inspiration and motivation, I will watch a YouTube video of someone being productive and that usually inspires me enough to then go and clean and be productive also.

Tip 2# writing out a plan. This helps me stay on track on what things i need to get done. And then I’ll set a timer and give myself an hour to do as much cleaning or being productive as I possibly can. And once the timer goes off, I then decide wether I want to take my 15 min break or keep on being productive. Usually I keep on being productive because once you get the motivation you don’t want to stop.

Tip 3# tell yourself, the more you keep being unmotivated, the longer the task will be from being complete. Wether you are having a lack of motivation to clean or workout or uploading a YouTube video or blog. Whatever it may be the longer you hold off from doing it, the longer you will feel down about it not being done.

Tip 4# reward yourself. And make time for you time. As much as we really want to be motivated. Make a section of time for yourself to be able to watch Netflix or scroll in your newsfeed, whatever thing that is holding you back from being motivated, make time to do it also. So for me, after I do an hour of cleaning, I’ll then give myself 15- 20 min to watch a YouTube video. That way I have no excuse to be unmotivated.

Tip 5# don’t overwhelm yourself. Break a big task into little tasks, that way it is much easier to complete the smaller tasks and overall you’ll end up completing the big task.

For example cleaning out the pantry. Now that could sound overwhelming. So task 1 could be taking everything out of the pantry and placing it on the bench. Task 2 then throw away any out of date food. Task 3 wipe out the pantry. Task 4 place food back in pantry in a neat order . And then your done. Something that may look overwhelming doesn’t have to be if you break it up to smaller tasks.

Now that’s all my tips to help stop procrastinating. I hope this has helped someone.

How to be more minimalist

Hey Bloggers,

Today I thought I’d share with you what I’m currently learning how to do and that is how to be more minimalistic.

Today I will be sharing 3 things that have helped me be more minimalist.

1# wardrobe:

If you have a cluttered wardrobe, then place all your clothing and everything out of your wardrobe and place it on your bed. Now individually hold each item and create three piles, if anything that has holes or stains on it will go in the throw out pile, anything that doesn’t bring you happiness or joy put in the donate pile. And anything that sparks joy to you that fits you nicely put in the keep pile. Also keep in mind if you have a lot of clothes that you still want to keep, then what I also do is if I have 5 black long sleeve shirts I’ll minimal it down to two.

Then place all the clothing folded nicely in piles that makes you feel organised when looking into your wardrobe.

2# pantry

If your the type of person who opens your pantry and there is no organisation what’s so ever and everything’s just everywhere and not in the right spots. Then I think it’s time to start cleaning and organising your pantry. So first of all I place as much as I can on the bench and go through what I have. Stuff that is out of date gets thrown in the bin. And then the rest of it either goes into a category in the pantry that I have made or into containers. For example I’ll make a area for can food, an area for rice an area for cereal and etc. Then if you feel even more inspired, label your designated spots for certain food. That way there’s no more putting food in the wrong places.

3# desk

Is your desk full of paper work and crap!

Well then I think it’s time to organise your desk. So firstly get folders and label each folder. Bills, receipts etc. Then place all your paperwork into folders. Next have a spot for your folders so there not all scattered all over the desk. Next get all the rubbish and throw it away. And then lastly anything that is not work related that is taking too much room on your desk then can go somewhere else. Make sure you have a pencil case for all your stationary stuff. And give all your stuff and your desk a wipe down, from any build up dusk that may have gotten on your desk.

I hope these three tips on being minimalist has helped. And I hope you enjoyed the blog.

How To Be More Happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hey Bloggers,

There are days when we feel down, and feel like where getting no where. These are my top 5 tips to feel more Happy ๐Ÿ˜Š

1# Write the things that get you down.

By writing down the things that get you down, you are then able to see them on a piece of paper and remove them from your head. Now focus on the things that make you happy and do something that you enjoy.

2# use that negative energy in a positive way.

For me those negative things I wrote down, I use that negative energy and I use it by cleaning the house. When I feel stressed and unhappy I used that energy and cleaned the kitchen and then I felt happy because I was satisfied that my kitchen was then clean. Another great idea to use that energy is by going for a run or working out, that way you feel satisfied and fit after doing that workout.

3# stay away from the things that bring you down.

Wether that’s toxic people or just anything that brings you down, stay away from it! Surround yourself in the things that make you happy, wether that’s reading your favourite book, or hanging out with a friend that makes you happy!

4# Write down the things you are thankful for being in your life.

For me I write down in my notebook all the things I’m thankful for, like clothes and a roof over my head and food and water to eat and drink. And really mean it and have gratitude. That way after writing it all down, it makes you feel happy and joyful and thankful for the life we are living in.

5# Try smiling.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but sometimes when I wake up a little grumpy or something happens to bring down my mood, I force a smile on my face, and 9 times out of 10 just forcing that smile on my face, automatically makes me feel more happier about life.

I hope you enjoyed this blog, please feel free to comment on what makes you feel happy!

The things they donโ€™t tell you when starting a blog / needing advice

Hey Bloggers!

Today is more of a chatty and advice blog. But today I thought I would share with you my experiences with blogging and the ups and downs. And before commenting anything negative on this blog, please comment and let me know if you experienced any of these and how you overcome them.

1# It takes time before you get noticed. Now don’t get me wrong I love blogging just for the fun, but when you have done it for so long it is nice to be able to get a like or a comment from time to time, and sometimes the blogs you have put a lot of effort into don’t get as many likes as you were expecting.

2# Making money- Unfortunately for me, I haven’t even made a cent in blogging, and people say it takes time and dedication which is definitely true, but it also takes a lot of research and money to spend on your blog first. For me today I spent over 200 dollars into getting a premium account which said it would come out as 9 dollars each month for two years. And I thought great! So I put my bank details in and BAM ๐Ÿ’ฅ over 200 dollars came out of my account all at once.

3# How are you even suppose to make a cent doing blogs. Now I’m doing blogging for the love and the passion, but I’ve been doing some research on how to have a better blog and how to slowly start making income. I’ve spent two full days ( my weekend) trying to figure out how to make income on my blog over time, and it does not have a step to step guide, and everything I research about you have to pay more money for the things I don’t have.

4# it takes love and dedication to be a blogger!, I’m a little bummed about the fact that I can’t make my hobby into a job, because there is no rule book or website that shows me a step to step guide on how to do so. But I’m still happy to do it for the love and enjoyment I get out of it.

Anyways I’ve been doing my blog for over 2 years now. And today I changed my blog from free to premium. Can I please have some lovely bloggers out there to tell me there stories and if you are on free or premium or business on WordPress, and how your finding WordPress, and the experiences you have gone through, I would really love some advice.

Thankyou
