Motivation During a Stressful Time

I am usually VERY busy at year end with work but this year it is a little different. I am having to complete year end processes two weeks earlier then normal and it means that I am not sleeping very well and working LONG hours.

This means I need motivation to keep going when I just don’t want to do anything, anymore. Here are 5 songs that gear me up to keep pounding the work out. Do you have songs that motivate you to keep going?

This year has been FULL of work travel and that means I have been keeping the I-5 nice and warm between Oregon and Washington. This fall I headed back to Seattle for another work trip and even though I manage to be up there a lot; I still find new things to love. Here are 5 new things that I fell in love with during this last trip.

  1. Homegrown
  2. Seattle Great Wheel
  3. Museum of Pop Culture
  4. Funko World Headquarters
  5. Tipsy Cow Burger Bar
