Self motivation. It is by far the hardest thing that I have had to do lately. 
I have moved to Denmark and I am living with my boyfriend who works 9-5. And what is it that I do? Now that is a good question.
It is so easy to fall into the trap of being lazy, I mean when you have no commitments and no one is expecting anything from you what reason is there to wake before noon, or hell why even get dressed if you have nowhere to go, no errands to run and no money to spend… That has been my struggle for the last 3 weeks. Finally I have begun to succeed in motivating myself. I mean for the past THREE weeks I could have done a million and a half things with my free time: worked out, cooked a gourmet meal, WRITTEN IN MY BLOG… and what did I do? I sat on the couch saying, “after this episode I will clean the kitchen…. after this movie I will go for a run…. after this game I will finally sit down and make a list of all the things I need to do…” and how much of that did I actually accomplish?!?! NONE. 
After a weeks of wasting time, doing nothing, eating Pringles and Oreos (the boyfriend did the shopping) I put on my white jeans to go out, and I could barely zip them! I didn’t have to think very hard to figure out how that happened. My reality check. This week I am now taking Danish lessons from 9 to 12.30. I get home at 13 and have lunch. Then I read or do something to unwind from the intense Danish class. Around 14.30 I do something active for an hour: run, yoga, go for a walk, bike around Copenhagen, ect. Then I shower and around 16 sit down and do my Danish homework, which usually takes a good hour or two!
Turning on the TV is a productivity killer, it sucks you in and makes you think that it is a priority when really it isn’t. Today I refused to turn on the TV and now at 17.30 I have done all the things listed above plus I cleaned the kitchen. And I already feel lighter and like I have accomplished a lot in my day. Now, when I make friends (only my second day of meeting people, and someone asked for my number!) I will have a coffee or go to lunch with them, and if I don’t get to one of the things on my list, it isn’t the end of the world. It is all about motivating yourself to do something when you have nothing that HAS to be done.
