Can I just lay on the couch today?

We needI admit there are days when vegetating on the couch in front of the TV feels pretty good. Some days the TV wins and some days my desire to improve myself wins. When I take the time to do something productive or improve myself in some way I always feel better about myself. Why can’t we lay on the couch AND feel better about ourselves?

We have a part of us deep inside that craves self-improvement whether that be exercise, taking a class, cleaning the house, or reading personal development material. It is when we ignore the yearnings that we allow ourselves to get into a funk. We have a tendency to beat ourselves up for laying around the house and not being productive. There is a reason for all of this. We are meant to be creative, productive, life-long learners.

Make it a point every day to have at least one productive goal. It could be as simple as doing 5 jumping jacks, or organize one kitchen drawer. Make it something simple that can be accomplished. If it is too large, we can get overwhelmed and not tackle the task. As you start to accomplish your goals, you will get even more motivated to keep going because that is how we are wired. We need goals and we need to accomplish them. If you need help setting your goals simply send me an email at jenny@jenniferhester.com and I will help you get started. Go out and show everyone you’re “AWESOME” today.
