I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.

Any advice on staying motivated? I find it so hard! I always lose interest insanely fast, even if it's something I love. I feel like it's my greatest downfall...

Anon,

I can totally understand that! I think it’s just part of the human condition at times, falling in and out of motivation. Falling out can be valuable in its own way, allowing us to reassess what’s no longer serving us and what is.

In my experience it has to come from within, or else whatever strategy you use is just a short-term solution. Knowing your strengths is key. For example, if you’re someone who is a bit type-A about keeping your schedule, then go ahead and schedule things like meditation and workout sessions on your calendar and “to-do” lists so that way your neurotic self can keep you in check. Or, if you know you’re the most creative/energetic in the morning (there are some of us out there!) then set your alarm a bit earlier to fit things in when you know you’re more apt to get them done. Or the same for at night, whatever works for you. Whatever the little trick is, make sure it caters to your natural strengths.

Something I do, because visualization is a strength of mine, is create Pinterest boards of the “goal,” whether it’s a mediation board, a yoga board, even a cooking board. Before I do the activity I’m losing motivation with that day, I’ll take a look at the board and it always helps! Because then I can actually visualize both the action and the outcome, and it makes me want to engage.

Ultimately, if it’s going to better you, and you truly believe and accept that in your truest heart of hearts, motivation will be easier to stick with over time. I wish there was an easier method, but unfortunately motivation isn’t one of those easy routes. Whatever you need to do to remind yourself of WHY something is important to you on a deeper level, that’s where to start.

Namaste and good luck,

Anna
