Self-Care Challenge (Day 285): Creating a Manifestation Space

Organized desk

I noticed recently that my office was a disaster. I’ve been working on a number of projects simultaneously, and stacks of research and journals have taken over my floor. And then it dawned on me that I’ve been avoiding the space altogether. I can’t stand the clutter, and it probably isn’t surprising that I haven’t been motivated to complete any of my projects. Disorganized spaces make it difficult for me to focus.

This weekend, I made a commitment to myself to design a “morning ritual,” a new daily habit to help me stay accountable to myself by starting each morning on a positive, productive note. I’ve always been a morning person (depending on the day, I’m up anywhere between 4 and 6 AM), so it’s the perfect place to start.

I wanted the space to feel magnetic, luring me in each morning to review my vision board, read over my goals, spend some time gratitude journaling, and outlining a plan for the day.

In preparation, yesterday’s self-care activity was to create an inspiring space that makes me happy–and is organized to help me get sh*t done!

It’s funny how something as simple as rearranging furniture or changing out a few decorations here and there can make a familiar space feel entirely different. Putting things where they go and removing things that don’t belong (things that aren’t useful anymore or no longer spark joy), makes priorities much easier to see.

Less is more.

And, as outrageous as the name may be, I’m calling it my “manifestation space” because it’s where I intend to bring some new and exciting ideas to life.

Where do you feel the most inspired to create and take action toward your goals?
