I have been feeling pretty tired lately, and I think part of the problem is that I haven't been drinking enough water. Because I know that I am motivated by pretty things, I have set up a little table with a beautiful cross-stitched tablecloth I bought at a garage sale and filled a 50 cent op-shop glass jug with cold water and a couple of slices of lemon. The aim is to go through several jug-fulls a day... and hopefully be rewarded with a bit more energy and fresher looking skin.
Making things pretty works in other areas of my life too - I always get through more of my to-do list if I write it on beautiful paper rather than an odd scrap, pretty pegs encourage me to hang out the washing rather than cram it in the dryer, and having attractive cleaning products results in a better attitude to cleaning the bathroom! What do you 'pretty up' to help you get the job done?
