We may already have a goal, but due to work piling up, we end up stressed so that everything is done in slow motion. This goes on until it feels like you lose the motivation to do more. When motivation disappears usually someone has a lot of negative emotions and needs inspirational quotes.
It’s also hard to control feelings, the more you fight, the stronger you get. Therefore, try to use your emotions to find out things that can motivate you.
Motivate Yourself With The Real Thing
When you grow up, toxic positivity will make you even more down. Face your obstacles and take concrete actions to re-motivate yourself. How to? Listen here.
1. Write a real goal
So that you always have a clear mind when you are down, write down the reasons why you want to do something. For example, if you want to motivate yourself to go to the gym, you can write down the reasons why you want to be fit.
Write down goals that are real, such as sleeping better, being healthier, having a less bloated stomach, and so on. With a real goal, it will be easier for you to motivate yourself.
Also make sure that your goals are long-term, especially when it comes to health, habits, and lifestyle. Because if it’s ‘temporary’, you are usually tempted to go back to the old bad lifestyle.
2. Start small
If you are trusted to handle a big project, don’t be put off because you are afraid to do it. Break the big task down into small steps, then work on them one at a time.
If breaking up a large task into smaller tasks still makes you procrastinate, break it down again until it’s smaller so you can do it right away. Estimate the estimated time to do it in 2-5 minutes.
Consistency is the key to doing great things. Do the small things first, then improve on the bigger ones, and after a while, it will be done!
3. Write down the things that make you happy
One of the best ways to keep yourself motivated is to take notes. Don’t write down exactly what you want in your notebook, but write down things and moments that make you happy or just smile.
Write down the daily moments that make you happy and excited every day. For example, you can win a game quest, or run 3 km every morning.
