You have the ability to achieve anything you set your mind to! You just have to rediscover your motivation!
Set SMART Goals:
Regular goal setting is a fantastic way to increase your overall motivation.
Setting SMART goals can give you something to work towards on a day to day basis, and give you a sense of direction. You don’t have to set large goals right away. You can start small and work your way up.
Just remember to keep your goals SMART:
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
Set Daily Tasks:
Of course, having a solid set of goals can help you stay on track and think about the future. However, sometimes that isn’t enough to keep you motivated throughout the day.
When you have so many things to do, it can often be difficult to know where to begin.
Taking just a few minutes every morning to write down your most important tasks can help declutter the mind and prioritize your day. Whenever a task is completed, you can cross it off and move onto the next one.
At the end of the day, you can look back on your list and celebrate how much you got done.
Build a Consistent Routine:
Writing out a to-do list is one thing. Following it in an appropriate order is another.
There will always be items on your list that ideally should be completed before others. Some people prefer to tackle the most complicated items first thing, while others prefer to take it easy and work their way up.
You know yourself best. If you want to succeed, you have to do what works for you. A great hack is to label your to-do list in order of priority.
An “A” task must always be completed before a “B” task, and a B task must always be completed before a “C” task.
Practicing self-care and listening to your body is one of the best ways to prevent burnout. When we’re constantly on the go and worrying about things, it’s easy for our motivation to slip away.
We all have those days where we just don’t feel motivated – and that’s okay!
Continuing to work on a task when our energy levels just aren’t there can be very exhausting and counterproductive.
If you feel like you need a break, go take one!
Call a Friend:
Being around people can be very motivating and give you some much-needed energy. As you know, getting together with friends is not an option right now. But that doesn’t mean you can’t call or FaceTime the people you love.
The next time you catch yourself feeling unmotivated, call up a friend and talk about something you love and/or are excited about.
That simple change of mindset can completely transform your mood.
