How To Motivate Yourself to Get Organized
Are you having a hard time getting motivated to organize your craft supplies? Do you so badly wish that you could get started with craft organizing, but then you walk in and you’re paralyzed? You just don’t feel like it or maybe you’re not sure where to start.
Either way, this post is for you! If you’re looking for some quick & easy ways to get yourself back on track, then check out the list below!
Jumpstart Your Craft Organizing
I’ll let you in on a secret. One of my favorite ways to get motivated is by looking at craft organizing supplies and containers on Pinterest. I start thinking about all the ways I could use various beautiful shelving units and colorful totes. Before you know it, I’m feeling ready to tackle all the tiny embellishments, threads, and paintbrushes in my craft room. Keep reading to discover the top 6 ways to get motivated and jump-start your craft room declutter project today.
Set a timer for 5 to 10 minutes
Set a timer for 5 to 10 minutes once or twice each day. You can do anything for 10 minutes! Plus, working in short bursts of time will allow you to truly focus on the task at hand and give it your best effort without feeling overwhelmed.
I know what you’re thinking. What can you possibly accomplish in 5 to 10 minutes? It might not seem like much, but after just a few sessions, you’ll be surprised by how much you can accomplish. A week filled with these short bursts of decluttering adds up. Think about it! 10 minutes per day, 6 days a week equals one hour.
Make a list to get yourself motivated
Make a list of pages and projects that you want to work on as soon as you get things organized and put it somewhere that you’ll see it every time you walk into your craft room. This list will act as a motivation board for your craft room, inspiring you to declutter and get organized every time you see it.
What a great motivator to get things to a point where you can create! After all, isn’t that why you started this hobby in the first place?
Turn Up The Tunes
No, I’m not kidding. Playing music while you organize and declutter your craft supplies will boost your energy and help you feel motivated. Choose your favorite upbeat tunes and get started. Who knows! It might be just what you need to get things done.
Do you have a special organizing playlist? The little guy and I do! Share yours in the comments or make one for yourself and get started decluttering. I promise you’ll be glad you did.
Have you finished organizing your patterned paper? That’s for sure a tough job! Way to go!
Go grab a smoothie or buy yourself a new book. Whatever works to keep you going. For some of us, those little incentives can go a long way towards making even our least favorite chores a bit more tolerable and keeping us motivated to go the distance.
Choose a Productive Time
Choosing the right time can make a big difference in your motivation. Schedule your organizing sessions for a time when you know that you’ll be the most productive. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Make it work for you! Set an alarm for early in the morning and work for 30 minutes or wait until after the kids are in bed and use organizing as a way to relax late at night. Before you know it, you’ll have an organized craft room to relax in while you create.
Invite a Friend
Cleaning and organizing are so much easier when you have someone to support and encourage you along the way. Just don’t forget to return the favor in the future.
If having someone come over isn’t an option, then find an accountability partner via the Facebook group and check-in with one another at least once every few days. Who knows! You might just find a new best friend or a crafting buddy to share project ideas with.
