Motivate yourself today so that you can have a better tomorrow.
Everyone goes through a slump now and again. From burning the candle at both ends or feeling unsatisfied in an area of your life, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in a lifeless routine of being lazy and doing the minimal work. Often, it takes a little tough love to motivate yourself.
We all face obstacles, we all feel uninspired from time to time, but that’s no reason to let yourself down. The more you get into the habit of doing nothing, the harder it is to get out of it. Put down the T.V. remote and step away from the sofa. Here’s how to kick yourself out of the lazy phase.
Direct your focus on only one or two tasks.
Don’t shoot yourself in the foot – looking at a list of To-Do’s that populate two pages is going to overwhelm you. Make yourself a cup of tea then come back to the desk refreshed and ready to tackle the first two tasks only! The sense of accomplishment for getting a couple of tasks checked off will encourage you to do more.
Hours upon hours upon hours can be wasted scrolling through social media when you could be doing something much more productive. Turn off the T.V., and put down your phone – it’s time to get off social media procrastination networks!
There couldn’t be a self-motivating list without including exercise! When you get moving, your body releases endorphins, otherwise known as the ‘happy hormone.’ Plus, while you exercise, your brain activates, which helps you to find answers to your problems that you hadn’t thought of before. It’s hard to be lazy when you have more momentum!
A bit of R&R is good for anyone. Whether you get a full night’s sleep, make time to read your favorite book, or splurge on a professional massage, a well-rested body is going to function much better than a stressed and tired person.
Once you’ve completed these tasks, are you ready to face the world again? If so, welcome back! If not, repeat from step one.
