When tackling an organizing project, remember to take breaks! Stay hydrated and break for a snack or lunch. It's so easy to want to keep going when you are making progress but take a moment to enjoy the space you are creating.
I like to walk the space or sit down in an area that was previously packed, just to admire all the work I've accomplished. I was working with a friend on her office and storage closets and she was in "get it done" mode. She would have kept going until I forced her to take this picture. It was a good reminder that we can goof off for a bit to recharge, then jump back in.
How often do you take breaks when working on a big project? What keeps you motivated when you have a lot of work to get through? Let me know in the comments below!
