As Summer nears its end, I realize how much I still want to do! I always think of Summer as a great time for productivity, growth, and most of all, fun. Maybe it’s the warm weather, or the natural break because kids’ school is out, but either way, Summer is a much needed time separate from the busier seasons of Spring and Fall. Maybe it’s just me, but I know that once I see the days get longer, all I want to do is all the DIY projects to improve myself and the world around me. I like to call Do It Yourself something else though – Do Greatness Yourself!
Doing small projects that utilize your creativity is a really great way to boost your motivation and overall happiness. For example, on a Saturday morning you might find me making planters, or putting up room decor. A simple search on the web for something like DGY Planters helps me get all kinds of ideas, and actually implementing them is really rewarding! Adding greenery to my home really opens up the energy, and adds a touch of life to the area. A little off topic, but this is something everyone should do!
When you’re always focused on the constant day to day tasks you have with work and family, there leaves little room for new trains of thought. With a motivation to create things anew, outlets like small DIY projects can dramatically augment your creative workflow. Having those varied ways of thinking creates a more robust understanding of the issues and challenges we face! Especially with projects that involve collaboration, humanitarianism, culture, and community, the impact on your mindset is immense.
