8 Dog Costumes You’ll Wish You Had For Dress Up Your Pet Day

It’s “Dress Up Your Pet Day” tomorrow and of course I had to scour the internet and find the best dog costumes out there.

Side note: Dressing up your dog may be fun for you, but make sure your dog is having as much fun as you are. If they don’t like it, don’t do it. Simples.

How to: KICK YOUR OWN ASS – #MotivationMonday

It’s time to get pumped!

Yes. You. You can do the thing. Wait, what’s that? You…you can’t do the thing? NO EXCUSES. DO IT.

JUST. DO. IT.

Do I sound like Shia yet?

Shia-LaBeouf-really-wants-you-to-justdoit

Seriously though, motivating yourself can be damn hard. Some days you just don’t wanna do the thing. And that’s okay. Really. Give yourself a break, veg out, listen to your body. But if you find yourself not doing the “thing” that you really want to do regularly, and that “thing” is going to make you happy and positive, and give you a general good step in the right direction, then why aren’t you doing it?

I guess the first question you have to ask yourself is, why haven’t you done it yet? Is it genuine lack of motivation, depression, an illness? If so, then make today the first step in the right direction. Do ONE thing that kick starts you. Gee yourself up in a way that’s going to make you REALLY want to do the thing. For me, I read blog posts, or I listen to a hella rad song (and recently that’s been Halsey), then I’m instantly motivated to get up and do something. I kick my own ass and DO IT.

Shia would be proud.

(If it’s mental illness or other health problems, then I really would advise speaking to someone first, because before you go off on adventures, it’s a good idea to make sure that you’re happy with you, and that you’re in a good place.)

But there’s that other possibility, the other reason you haven’t done it yet. And that might be that you don’t actually want to do the thing. Because when you think about it, that thing might not be a great thing, or it might not sit right, or you just might have no interest in it at all. And that’s okay too.

I guess before you can kick your own ass, you have to figure out what it is you actually want, sit and have a conversation with yourself if that’s what it takes. For me I write down everything I want to do, then sit and look at it and prioritise others over another, depending on how much I actually want to do it. And generally speaking I measure it with how excited I get over the project. This blog post right now is one of those things, I’ve had the day at college so now I’m sat writing this because I REALLY wanted to write it.

Find the thing that you really want to do. Then tell yourself everyday that you’re going to do it, no matter what. If you get a distraction? That’s cool, don’t beat yourself up over it. Just either stop immediately, then go and do the thing, or finish the distraction and then go and do the thing immediately. Don’t tell yourself “oh I’ll do it later”. Tell yourself “I AM going to do it, as soon as I’ve finished this.”

Even if you end up spending just five single minutes doing the task that you’ve set yourself, that’s just as amazing. Why? Because it’s a step in the right direction. Baby steps are better than no steps. You don’t learn to run before you can walk.

And that’s the most important part I believe, rewarding yourself. If you don’t reward yourself at all, then why would you bother doing it again? It’ll be harder to motivate yourself to do it the next day.

So go forth my friends, conquer your tasks, live out your dreams, and take each day at a time!

Realising Your Own Procrastination

There are 24 hours in each day, that’s a fact. Most people get around 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Let’s just even that out and say 8 hours of sleep everyone gets, that leaves 16 hours for you to have during the day.

Let’s take this a step further.

The typical shift is 9 hours. That leaves 7 hours left of your day. Take away an hour for dinner and an hour for breakfast – 5 hours. Then you account for travel time, the local businesses here take about 20 minutes to get to, so there and back that’s 40 minutes. But for the purposes of this ramble, let’s just take another hour off. 4 hours.

Now I know everyone’s different, so let’s also do a version for students.

The typical school day (9-5) or (9-4) lasts 6-8 hours. That’s only 2-3 hours away from a working day shift.  That’s 2-3 hours that they get extra.

So college/students free time: 5-7 hours

Work: 4 hours.

Something occurred to me very recently, and that’s that everyone I speak to always seems to be busy. And I don’t mean that in a “WHY YOU ALWAYS BUSY” way, I mean, they seem to WANT to be busy, but then complain that they have no time on their hands.

Well clearly, 4 hours, they do.

I’m guilty of it too though, and I’m the lucky few that gets 5 hours free during a day. But sometimes I sit and think “what have I actually used those 5 hours for?”

And most the time, it’s procrastination, I sit on my laptop, and scroll through Facebook or Twitter, or YouTube. Don’t get me wrong it’s good to do that, probably healthy even to have some time out. But I often find myself kicking my own butt because procrastination takes over, and it feels like all my limbs are glued together, and all my energy goes.

It wasn’t until I looked at YouTubers who have a day job as well as manage to make a vlog EVERYDAY, that I decided to do the math and work all this out. When I discovered I have 55 hours free time during the whole week. 55! That’s excluding sleep time!! What the hell do I do during that 55 hours?!

And that, my friends, is how I realised my own procrastination. A habit that i need to break. A habit that can go away! Now when I go to my laptop my aim is to do one of the following:

  • college work
  • YouTube work
  • Blogging

With breaks in between (because nobody likes a workaholic, and having breaks is healthy, which means I can use that time to search multiple videos of cats falling over and laughing at them because they’re not hurt, but stupid), and hopefully, hopefully, some productivity can happen. Like raw steam powered productivity. Yeah.

That’s…probably going to be covered in a separate blog post.

I guess I’m lucky enough that I only have me to worry about, and that gives me the ability to have all this free time! If you’re one of the lucky few too, don’t waste the time, get up and get moving!

 

Why You Should: Practice Living On Your Own

Olla bromigo’s

Today I’m here to talk to you about a very important practice: Living by yourself. Now I don’t know what age you are, if you’re 18+ I would definitely say try living by yourself, even if it’s just house sitting for your grandparents whilst they’re away, or even if your parents go away and you want to stay home. Do this for a good two to five days. If you’re under 18 then start by making your own dinners, or keeping your room tidy for longer than two hours (I still struggle with this mind you, and I’m 22).

Why? Put it this way, one day you’re going to wake up and realise you’re old enough to buy a house or move out, especially if you plan on going to uni this is so important, and you’re going to fancy something really nice, like pasta. Then you’re going to go to the fridge, and realise, you don’t know how to make pasta.

Naturally my example is about food, but even still. There’s just certain things that you don’t realise you’re parents or adult of the house do, that you’re going to need to do when you have your own place. Whether it’s uni or a house of your own, you’re going to need to do certain tasks that you wouldn’t have thought of before now. Yeah, they’re small things, but they are things that build up that if you don’t do you’ll know about it.

Plus it’s pretty good to spend some time by yourself. Personally I love just having a house to myself so I can just get on and write, or edit, or plan some future blogs and vlogs, without any distractions. However I know some people who absolutely hate spending time by themselves because they have no idea what to do, and end up craving people to talk to and hating being by themselves. Being alone doesn’t have to be boring, it’s good and healthy to find out more about yourself and learn what you could do if you have free time.

So go forth bromigo’s, go out there and learn more about yourself, learn how to do something you’ve never done before, and practice being by yourself.

Until next time, catch ya later x.
