What happens when motivation gets lost? When you are staring at your pile of work to do and can’t seem to focus on where to start or even find the energy to do it? Honestly, I couldn’t tell you. I just find the energy, motivation, etc whatever it is I need to find in order to move forward.
If you are lacking motivation and/or energy try these ideas and let me know if they work well for you:
- Take a Walk - the fresh air will clear your mind and since this is exercise will increase your happiness which in turn creates motivation.
- Eat Fruit - natural energizer, good source of nutrition and usually works wonders to give you some long term natural energy versus those energy drinks or candy.
- Walk Away – if you can take some time to simply walk away from what you are doing and read a book, wash the dishes or do something else for a little while you may find when sit back down to work you can focus.
- Start With the Small Tasks – instead of focusing on the huge pile of work in front you, start with something small and work up to the larger tasks.
There are many ways to regain focus and motivate yourself to move forward those are just a few I thought of that have worked for me personally. What has worked for you to find your energy & motivation when it’s been lost?
