Even if you are a positive and an optimistic person, there will be days when you will feel unmotivated and like doing nothing at all. Have you been feeling this way lately? We all feel that way at times and it can be hard to get excited and motivated again when you are being weighed down by this negative feeling. So I wanted to help you out by sharing with you some simple tips on how to get motivated right now.
SET A GOAL THAT GETS YOU EXCITED
I don’t know about you, but when I feel unmotivated or unproductive it’s because I have been focusing way too much on one specific area of my life, without realizing that I’ve been neglecting the other areas of my life that are necessary in order to feel happy and fulfilled.
Is there a particular area in your life that you have been neglecting?
Set goals for the areas of your life that you have been disregarding lately. Whether it is your health, relationships, marriage, family, self-care, etc.
Sometimes we might feel unmotivated because we focus too much of our time on a certain part of our life while forgetting the other important areas of our life to.
If you have needed a break and need some time off, then set a goal that this year you will get a week off and travel somewhere.
If you have neglected your health, set a goal to start working out or eating healthier so you could feel good and have more energy.
I am sure you get the point 🙂 Set a goal that gets you excited and that you need to work on!
STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR GOAL
A tip that keeps me motivated to achieve my goal is to focus on my goal every day.
I read books about it, I read articles, watch videos, etc. This helps me stay on track to not forget about my goal and I love reading success stories because that gets me even more motivated to continue on with my goal and not give up until I achieve it! 🙂
It also gives me the confidence to believe in myself because if someone else was able to accomplish that goal, then I could too.
So set smaller goals every day because small steps every day can lead to big results in the future.
I have this post that dives deeper in achieving your goals 🙂
LEARN TO TAKE BREAKS & TAKE A STEP BACK
Feeling unmotivated can also be because you are overwhelmed by all that they are doing and not seeing the results as fast as they would like too. Sometimes feeling like they just want to give up.
Trying to do too much in your life sometimes ends up making you feel tired and drained.
So learn to take a step back because sometimes all you need to get motivated again is to take a break.
I am naturally a positive and optimistic person, so the majority of the time I am always excited about life but of course, I am not perfect and I have my days when I feel blah and unmotivated.
So when I find myself unmotivated, what helps is to take a day off and simply do what I love and I find myself excited and motivated again.
You can do whatever you love and makes you happy and watch yourself feeling motivated all over again 🙂
If you want to dive deeper and learn more about how to sustain motivation I recommend reading The Motivation Manifesto by Brendon Burchard. This book has to be one of my favorite books about motivation because it shows you how to STAY motivated throughout your life.
If you know someone who has felt unmotivated who might need to read this post, make sure to share it with them!
What helps you get motivated? We would love to know!
Have a lovely day! 🙂
