There is a lot to block us from feeling normal right now which the experts say is understandable.
But we can’t feel this way forever right? It damages our emotional state to constantly feel unmotivated and unproductive. It does me at least.
Even before this world Pandemic I practiced something that whenever I felt a creative block coming on or I felt unmotivated to get moving I would do this one simple thing.
I changed my clothes. Wait a minute…that’s it? Just change your clothes?
Yes, change what you are wearing. I always feel better and more motivated (and creative) when I change into something cool. I put on my coolest jeans, a ruffly, colorful top, a vintage necklace and even put on my best sneakers, and I swipe on some lipstick. I don’t care if the only person that sees me is me. If I look better, I feel better. Then I go take some photos of dishes and of course I look awesome doing it.
Changing into something that isn’t sweats or pajamas is what makes you feel better. It sets you up to succeed. You might feel comfy in your PJ’s but let me tell you in the long run it hurts you. It keeps you unmotivated, trust me.
I want to paint my bathroom and I have been putting it off all day. I am going to put on my cool ripped jeans, a cool graphic t-shirt, a pair of my awesome vintage earrings and put some Metallica on my ipod and started painting.
Try it. Change your clothes 😉. – MM
