Last time I checked, summer was just beginning and now, it's coming to an end or already has (according to Airline speak, summer ends on Aug 23rd)! Given the longer daylight hours, has it been all play or have you managed to pull off the right balance between work and play? Whatever the case may be, how do you stay/get inspired to work on your at-home organizing projects?
With the temperatures being what they have been i.e. long sultry days, I can see how tempting it would be to chill out and avoid working on say a garage, attic or outdoor project! If this has been your goal, and you still haven't got around to it, or you have but just couldn't get past the heat then try and plan for an early start (when temperatures are cooler). However, if this is not possible, set up a cooling and hydrating station where you can take a break as needed, and marshal the forces of friends or other family members to help out - after all, many hands make light work! Also, ensure that all your supplies are on hand in order to avoid the irritation that comes with not being able to find what you need when you need it, and to avoid the disruption of your work flow.
On the other hand, if the day is lovely, why would you want to spend it indoors, right? Rather than fighting that feeling, go outside and commune with nature (whatever this means to you). Feed your spirit and allow your inner engine to be revved up! You may be surprised to find that your "hiatus" has puts a positive spin on what previously seemed challenging or uninspiring. Therefore, roll up your sleeves and get to work - a balanced space = a balanced mind!
As summer wraps up, enjoy what's left of it, but do what needs-to and must-be done.
