Motivation Monday

Last week Chicago had a couple of really nice sunny and breezy days.  Since I work in the basement everyday it's hard for me to enjoy a beautiful day.

I decided to take my work outside one day.  I got my chair cushion, plugged in my computer, and spent the afternoon working outside.

To stay motivated you want to be able to enjoy everything a day has to offer and not feel like you are missing out.

Why not take your work outside today.

If you have the type of supplies that are easily moved take them outside. If your supplies are like mine and not easy to transport consider taking your laptop outside.  No laptop enjoy a few hours with your journal or a notebook and plan some new designs, do some business planning, or just sit and enjoy the inspiring sounds of nature.

How do you like to enjoy a beautiful sunny day?

  1. I bet you had a lovely time, doing your computer work outside! That's the good thing about a laptop - you can use it anywhere, not just at a desk. :)

  2. What a beautiful place to sit and work at : )

  3. Sometimes we all need that fresh air, sunshine on our faces and the rejuvenation that the outdoors brings.

    Have a wonderful day!

  4. How lovely to work outside. I do sometimes take my little laptop outside, but it's not usually work related...more play! ;-)

  5. I take my laptop outside every morning with my coffee. It would really be nice if we actually had some sun here in "sunny California" though....

  6. It's funny that you mention this, because for the last few days I've been blogging from our back deck while sunning myself. It's been so nice!!! I'm trying to take advantage of the weather before it gets too hot!

  7. I've been doing the same, when I can. Any excuse to be outside, and I'll take it! When it's too hot or too bright to see the screen I'll head over to our little pop up camper and work in there. With the windows open I get all the fresh air and no bugs! ;) I just spent some time out in the yard with the girls, watching the chicks, petting my dog, soaking up the sun. Sometimes it's really nice to just BE. But, now back to the computer... ;)

  8. Today was one of those days. I just took time off to be with my daughters, played outside with them, had watermelons, berries and lots of fun. Feeling mighty refreshed and back to get back the creative juices flowing. Great to be outdoors Yeah!

  9. Beth from Etsypreneuer- Great idea! I wish I could have done that today. It was hot and muggy here in KS already! Hopefully I can do that later on this week!

  10. I make the most of our winter sun when we get it! had a lovely cuppa with my eldest daughter sitting in a protected sunny spot this morning. Nice.
