Staying Motivated While At Home

Some days at home during self-quarantine (especially without barn time!) can feel as if they drag on forever making it hard to be productive. It's important to find small ways to keep positive as best you can.

Here are a few tips to keep your spirits high while at home:

1.) Adjust your thermostat to your perfect setting before you get up so it's ready to go.

2.) Open the windows for some fresh air and allow as much sunlight to come in as possible!

3.) Customize your alarm: Start out the day with a song that motivates you and gets you in a good frame of mind.

4.) Find a friend: Lean on a friend or family member for social interaction through a call, text or video chat service.

5.) Dress the part: Dress for success to help you feel good. Just because you might not be going out these days, it doesn't mean you can't dress up if it makes you feel better!

6.) Add green to your work space to to add life and warm it up! If you have fresh flowers blooming outside, bring a few in. If not, you can also have some artificial plants.

7.) Add a photo or inspirational item that make you feel happy to your work space.

8.) Go outside and take a walk to get some fresh air whenever you need the break.

9.) Keep planning for the future! Make a list of all the things you'd like to do once this is over and restrictions are lifted. (#1 on most lists... RIDE THEIR HORSES!!)
If your plans are to find a new barn for your horse(s) to call home this summer, consider coming to Southwind Farm where all types of boarders are welcome and treated like family!
