You know what the problem with writing a post about Lazy Inspiration? You get too busy and lazy to actually write it… >_>

Lately I’ve been talking about Lazy Inspiration a lot. I mentioned it as the theme for The VLB and it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while.

I can be very unmotivated sometimes and once you’re in an unmotivated frame of mind it’s hard to climb out of it because everything seems to hard. You have a couple of set backs which are outside of your control and it completely ruins your momentum. You’re too busy to do anything but even though you’re so busy… nothing really gets done. It’s a bad habit! All of your goals seem so far away from actually being completed.

So I feel like this…


And then this happens instead of me actually completing the original goals…


And that’s exactly the problem. Big things are hard! Small changes are easy. And if you can make enough small changes the results in your life suddenly become nice and big without you even noticing.

I want to be one of those people who do things and go places and are productive all the time… but I’m already in my pajamas… >_>

So rather than completely fight against my nature I’ve decided to embrace it! Rather than forcing myself to get out of my pyjamas… I’m just going to make prettier pyjamas! Or wear heels at home or bright lipstick or anything else which is a small change but gives me a boost of confidence.

The challenge I’ve set myself is to do one small thing every day which will boost my mood and inspire me. Small changes which will lead to bigger changes.     Inspiration for the lazy.

What kinds of things though? They need to be quick, easy, inexpensive and make me feel good when I can cross them off.

This is the list I’ve come up with so far:

  • Paint your nails
  • Make a healthier meal than usual
  • Wear your cutest outfit
  • Think of one thing you like about your life
  • Consciously try to smile more
  • Try out a new make up look
  • Try out a new hair style
  • Make a night time wind down routine eg. read for 15min, listen to one song while you apply your face creams so you are relaxed for bed
  • Try exercising for 5 minutes a day (and build up to more when you’re ready)
  • Wear a face mask
  • Make your next meal as pretty as possible
  • Give a stranger a compliment
  • Wear something completely different than you’re used to
  • Start reading a new book in a different genre than you usually read
  • Throw out something you’ve been meaning to for ages
  • Try out a new craft
  • Paint your toe nails and add some bling
  • Decorate/organise the area you spend the most time in (my desk!)
  • Clean that one area of the house that you never get around to (the laundry…)
  • Listen (and possibly dance) to a really happy uplifting song (I’m going to do it to some bubble gum kpop!)
  • Take a photo of a really pretty view
  • Find and study a really pretty flower
  • Try something creative like drawing, painting or sculpting, it doesn’t matter if you suck it at as long as you try something new!

That’s what I’m going to start with, I think I’ll update this often with new ideas that I’m trying out.

If any of you guys want to be lazily inspired you can take this list or leave me your list in the comments! Let me know if you write a post about your progress, results, pledge, whatever! If you post on social media use the hashtag #lazyinspiration and I’ll keep track of everything. Likewise, you will be able to see me cross these things off on Instagram and Facebook.

The best thing about using #lazyinspiration is that as soon as you tell someone you’re going to do something, you become accountable! It’s easy to tell yourself you’re going to do something and never do it (*cough* I do it all the time!) but as soon as I tell Celina or James, they start asking me how it’s going and then I feel like I HAVE to do it, so let’s be each others guilt support network!

Maybe we’ll make this a monthly or weekly thing with challenges, rewards, prizes, that kind of thing if you guys are interested. Motivation and inspiration is possible and we can inspire each other to keep going even when we aren’t feeling at our best!

What do you guys think? Are you ready to be inspired in the laziest way possible?

Let’s get motivated together!
