We all have dreams and goals that we are aiming to accomplish. Despite our best efforts, we seem to stray away from these desires more often than not. Sometimes we are lacking in motivation even though our ambitions are still crystal clear. Here are four amazing tips to get you motivated when you are feeling down.
I highly suggest to watch this video below:
1. Surround Yourself With Motivating People
You are the average of the five people with which you most closely associate. We have all heard this saying in one form or another. The general idea is that we are influenced by the people that we spend time with. If you spend time with people who are pessimistic and lethargic, that will quickly become your reality. Even the most upbeat and motivating person can be impacted when associating with people who ooze negativity. In order to keep yourself motivated, it is crucial to associate with people who are motivated themselves. You can feed off of their positivity and drive in order to accomplish your dreams and goals.
2. Write Down Your Goals
According to a study conducted by Dominican University, those who wrote down their goals accomplished more than those who did not. While this may sound like another cliché, I can assure that there is merit to this practice. When we see our goals written down, we are more motivated to accomplish them. In one way, it is our first step to achieving these goals. Furthermore, writing down our goals offers a sense of clarity of want we want to accomplish.
3. Workout In The Morning
While this tip may seem unrelated to motivation, it can have amazing results. Waking up every morning and working out provides you with immediate purpose and vitality in the mornings. This amazing way to start your day ensures that the rest of the day is set up to be successful. After all, would you feel more motivated after sleeping in past noon or after a tough and satisfying workout? The workout doesn’t have to be particularly long or difficult. The main idea is to get your body and mind working first thing in the morning in order to be motivated for the rest of the day.
4. Take Much Needed Breaks
One of the most important tips for staying motivated is to take regular breaks. I understand this seems counter-intuitive to the overall goal of productivity. What could be motivating about taking a break? In reality, humans are easily burnt out or overworked. When we push ourselves too hard we are more likely to give up or falter in our consistency. Therefore, breaks should be worked into our schedule in order to keep ourselves motivated. A good rest will not only recuperate the mind but also give our bodies a nice break. When we come back to the task at hand, we will be more motivated than before to accomplish our goals.
Staying motivated can be a tricky endeavor amidst the countless distractions in your daily life. In order to accomplish our dream and goals however, motivation needs to stay high and consistent. These four amazing tips will help to get you motivated when drive is low or non-existent.
