5 Ways to Feel More Motivated at Work

We all have those days where our job can make us feel bored, overwhelmed or even a little bit of both at the same time. 

Of course, you shouldn’t stay at a job that makes you unhappy. 

However, sometimes quitting isn’t the best option – at least not right now. 

There are plenty of hacks that can help keep work exciting and fun!

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

It’s always fun to mix things up and experiment. 

When you’re in a rut, challenging yourself and stepping outside your comfort zone can amp up your energy levels and motivation.

There is always more than one way to do something. It’s just a matter of coming up with a game plan.  

Start Your Day off Right

Our mornings set the tone for our entire day.

Sleeping in an extra hour and starting work right away may seem like a good idea in theory – but it is not.

The first thing you do every morning should be something you want to do, not something you have to do.

You could read a book, prepare a healthy breakfast, listen to a podcast, the list goes on.

Reward Yourself

No accomplishment is too small.

We all have those days where it feels like our to-do list just never ends.

Whenever you finish a task, don’t just move onto the next one.

Instead, take some time to celebrate your accomplishment and acknowledge all that you’ve done.


Finding humour in a tough situation can completely change the way you look at it.

Laughter reduces stress hormones and increases endorphins.

At the end of a tough day, watching a funny movie may be the best thing you can do!

Relieve Stress In Healthy Ways

As you know, going to the gym is not an option right now, but there are several other ways you can relieve stress. 

You can go on a bike ride, walk around the block, meditate, or go on a long drive with the windows open.
