How to be Your Own Motivator

Guest Post by Paige Eades
Motivation can be hard. Life commitments, personal relations, mental and physical health can all have a part to play in keeping yourself motivated, happy and successful. How many times have you tried to do something; sat down and just found yourself struggling to find the energy or spirit in order to execute it?

Me too. I tried thinking of ways that I could become self-sufficient in motivating myself, and not having to rely upon anyone else to spur me on. Think about how much of a machine we could all be if we each knew what makes our motivation cogs turn? It would be a success explosion! These are some of the ways I like to motivate myself; so hopefully they come in useful to someone else too.

Here are some of our favourite things that we did!

5 Simple Ways to be More Eco-Friendly

Nowadays, it's more important than ever to start thinking about small ways we can help the planet and look after it. There's been a huge surge in the beauty industry and a drive towards consumers wanting more ethical or 'planet-friendly' products and options. I'm by no means perfect and there are definitely lots more ways I could adapt to help but I thought I'd share a few really simple things you can swap in your life to help just that little bit.
