We go through times of feeling meh about work or everyday life. But, the good news is there are also plenty of solutions to get you out of the humdrums-and back to yourself in no time!
There can be varying factors you should consider. Feeling a lack of motivation, or just simply not wanting to do something maybe related to your overall physical or mental health. In other instances, it m
ay just simply involve doing something that perhaps your mind and body are just not ready to do.
Follow any of these 5 simple steps for motivating yourself the next time you are having struggles.
1. For many people, trying something new can make all the difference in how you feel, or how motivated you are later on in the day. Just remember, don’t quit after only trying one thing if it doesn’t work out–keep pushing yourself to learn more about what makes you happy and go with it!
2. Going outside to take a walk in the morning, even if only for a few minutes, thanks to fresh air, being able to see or interact with others, and simply take in the scenery can help motivate you to do other tasks you just simply don’t feel like doing.
3. Try making a “to-do list” of your daily goals or obligations. Even better, consider investing in a budget-friendly white-board to pin up on your home office or bedroom that you can use to precisely map out what it is you’re looking to accomplish, and how!
4. Get more sleep–and we can’t emphasize this enough! Getting the proper, scientifically proven and recommended 7-10 hours of sleep each night can make a dramatic difference in how motivated you feel the next day–or how much energy you have. Also, how comfortable is your mattress? Is it time to possibly invest in a new one? As an extra tip, consider shutting off all electronic devices and lights at least 45 minutes before you intend to fall asleep.
5. Playing energizing music, listening to motivational videos, or even tips by personal trainers and life experts can also be very useful in gathering the necessary energy and motivation to be successful with today’s, and tomorrow’s tasks.
Most importantly, try to focus on what you do have in life, or even write them down if you want! This should help motivate you, and remind you of the good things you have–as well as what it took to get there.
