Some of the Best Places to Find Motivational Wallpapers

Some of the Best Places to Find Motivational Wallpapers

Today, I thought I should share some of the inspirational and motivational things that keep me going.

I always feel the need to motivate myself, and I know that a lot of people are like that too. As someone who has gone through depression, in order to get going and start doing things that need to be done, I always want to see or hear something inspirational and positive to nudge me into action. My search for positivity and inspiration often includes making a phone call to my mentor, reading an inspirational book, or looking at inspirational quotes. Some of my favorite motivational tools are inspirational wallpapers that I display on my phone screen and on my laptop.

I look at these wallpapers all the time, and especially before I start writing on my laptop. They are like energizers, motivating me and reminding me of my goals and what’s important.

It might seem like a little thing, but surrounding yourself with positivity is a very effective way to keep yourself focused and driven. In addition to having that motivational book you can always turn to for life lessons, you should get motivational wallpapers for your laptop or desktop. Adding some inspirational wallpapers can help you get motivated, active and productive.

    They can even help draw you out of procrastination and doubt, some of the issues that cause lack of motivation for most of us.

    11 Things You Should Minimize for a Better Life

    11 Things You Should Minimize for a Better Life

    Ever heard the statement less is more? Is that a reality in your life or is that an area you are struggling with? Below are 11 different areas you can look at in your life to start to reduce as you focus on building a better life.

    Let’s get to it:

    Your Stuff

    I call it stuff vs possessions. Stuff is what adds clutter in your life. It could be shoes, curios from the cute store in your town or excess appliances you need to throw out but never do. What is it that is overtaking your house that if you moved away you wouldn’t need it at all? Plan a Sunday afternoon throw out session. If throwing out doesn’t sit right then give it away to goodwill.

    Your Acquaintances

    How many people are you interacting with throughout the week that don’t leave you feeling good about yourself? Who inspires you? Spend time with those people. Too often we keep people in our lives that we are no longer a fit for. Having too many old acquaintances adds to the excess in your life. If the relationship isn’t a win-win for you both then take a step back and focus on those that do.

    Your Goals

    Motivated to write out your list of goal for the next month or 3 months? That is awesome. Just a few works of caution. Don’t write down too many. Often people write down over ten goals. The brain can only remember so much and the reality is you won’t get to them all. I suggest you look at your goals with the mindset of single digits. No more than ten, but ideally less than five. Keep the list focused and realistic.

    Your Commitments

    A new favorite buzz saying in the self-help world is “No is the new Yes”. Take a moment to think about that saying. If you started saying no more how would your week and life look? Would you have more time to commit to the important goals and people in your life? Start to practice saying No when a request comes your way that you don’t want to do. If that feels too harsh try responding with these words “Let me get back to you”. Go away and come back with a no when you are in stronger mindset to say that.

    Your Multitasking

    I am giving you permission to stop multitasking. We used to be told that multitasking was a good practice. We look so busy and aren’t we getting a lot done? In fact, no. Multitasking isn’t possible with the way our brain is wired. We need to focus on one key thing and keep our attention on that item until it is complete.

    Your Newsfeed

    I consider all the information from the Internet that is being feed into our smartphone, laptop and brain as “the newsfeed.” It doesn’t add to having more knowledge, it adds to information overload. Build time in your day or week when you are completely offline. I recommend turning your wireless off or setting your smart phone to airplane mode.

    Your Cards

    Open up your wallet and take a look inside. What is in it? For most of us it is more than one store, charge or loyalty card. Too many cards add to extra spending, bills and lack of clarity of where our money goes. Look at what cards you truly need and use. Get rid of the rest (scissors work!).

    Your Mail

    Both the old style (postal) and your email inbox are areas to minimize. Look at ways to get off catalogs or reduce the magazine subscriptions as you never read all of them anyway. Figure out what mail, e.g. bank statements, can be changed to digital mail only. Try the same with your inbox. Sites like unroll.me can tell you how many email newsletters you are subscribed to and you can take your name off the list that you know longer need.

    Your Sitting Time

    Too much time in front of the screen is not good for the posture and health of your body. Try setting a timer so every 50 minutes you get up and stretch or go for a five minute walk. We don’t realize how bad our posture is when we sit for long periods of time. The studies on sitting disease are what led to standing and walking desks to be invented. If your office doesn’t have that get into a regular habit to stand and walk often in your day.

    Too much time by yourself can led the mind to wander. When the mind wanders it will often return with negative thoughts and beliefs. While a walk by yourself and some downtime is rejuvenating take notice if you start to feel un- inspired or a little sad and make sure you aren’t spending too much time in your own company. This is especially important for those of us who work from home. Make sure to have people interaction throughout your day.

    Your Lack of Belief

    If you want to make a change or achieve a goal in your life you need to truly, 100 percent believe you can. If you don’t believe in yourself then why should anyone else?

    The difference between a successful person and someone struggling can be as simple as a mindset switch to believe that they will succeed.

    What areas can you minimize to create more happiness, focus and productivity in your life? Implement just a handful from the list and you will find that the mindset of ‘Less is More’ will be what leads you on the path to a better life!
