Simple Motivation Hacks Anyone Can Try

Simple Motivation Hacks Anyone Can Try

LIFE BY DESIGN IN EVERYDAY ROUTINES

Motivation these days just ebbs and flows. When the mood strikes, be sure to have yourself set up for success. These are four simple ways in which you can simplify your daily routine.

IF IT TAKES LESS THAN TWO MINUTES, DO IT NOW.

Now this one is sometimes easier said than done but, for the most part, I have been sticking to it. So often I have these fleeting reminders to walk an envelope to the mailbox or unload the dishwasher, and something about it being so simple makes me procrastinate and push it to the end of the day. The problem with that is I am left with ninety-seven tiny things I need to do at the end of the day. If it’s a quick little task, I just do it while it’s on my mind.

BULLET JOURNALING

This one is still fairly new for me, but boy is it working! I love being able to get all of my sweet thoughts out about the good things going on in my life and also have a place for my to-do list in the same notebook. Usually this allows me to sort of unload lots of things from my mind and it has been so nice to be able to truly feel focused on my husband or my daughter when I am with them, and not have something random lingering in the back of my mind.

IF IT DOESN’T HAVE A HOME, IT DOESN’T BELONG HERE.

I am trying to live a more intentional life and while I wish I was a minimalist, I enjoy too many pretty things. If there is an item that comes into our home that somehow does not fit or have a “home” it has to go. There is no room for cluttered countertops or piles on our floors (especially with a new addition to the family) so holding fast to this requirement has kept our home/cars/office, and in turn my mind, less junky.

MOP AND VACUUM OFTEN.

Nobody really likes to clean their floors (do they?) but there are days when I wish I could run the vacuum more. Before I start working on a project, I clear my desk of anything I don’t plan to use. Our family even clears off our dining table before we start setting it for dinner. There is something about a clean slate that readies the mind for a new adventure, and I use this one every chance I get. Fluff the pillows and clear off the couch before you plop down for a marathon, empty the seats in your car before you take a trip, see if it helps you get centered.

What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 


How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!


Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
