When you’re feeling down and out, it can be tough to muster up the energy to get motivated. You may feel like you can’t accomplish anything, and that’s certainly not a good mindset to have. In this blog post, I will give you 10 tips to achieve motivation when you’re feeling blah. Follow these tips and you’ll be on your way to getting things done in no time!
Tip 1: Change your environment
One of the quickest ways to change your mindset is to change your surroundings. If you’re sitting in the same spot day after day, it’s no wonder you’re not feeling the motivation. Get up and move around, go outside for a walk to get some exercise, or even just switch rooms. You’ll be surprised at how much of a difference it can make every day.
It takes energy to create more energy. Switching your environment is one way to do just that.
Tip 2: Set small goals to get motivated
When you’re feeling blah, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s why it’s important to set small goals for yourself. Instead of thinking about everything you need to do for the big picture success, focus on one goal at a time. And once you accomplish that goal, move on to the next. Routine is key when accomplishing a task.
You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can get things done when you break them down into smaller tasks.
Tip 3: Get organized
Another way to feel some motivation is by getting organized. When your space is cluttered and disorganized, it can add to your feelings of blahness. Take some time to tidy up and you’ll feel much better.
A clean space can help clear your mind and give you a sense of control, especially over the long term.
Tip 4: Find a role model
If you’re having trouble with motivation, find someone who inspires you. It could be a friend, family member, or even a celebrity. When you see someone who is living their best life, it can be a great motivator. Plus, they probably have skills you’re interested in acquiring.
Find someone who shares your values and has similar goals. Seeing them succeed will help you believe that you can too.
Tip 5: Take care of yourself
One of the most important things you can do for motivation is to take care of yourself. When you’re feeling blah, it’s likely that you’re not taking care of your physical or mental health. Make sure to eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, and get enough sleep.
It’s also important to find time for activities that make you happy. Doing things that make you feel good will help increase your motivation.
Tip 6: Change your mindset to get motivated
If you’re constantly telling yourself that you’re not good enough or that you can’t do something, it’s time to change your mindset. There’s nothing motivational about that. Start by believing in yourself and your abilities. When you have a positive outlook, it’s much easier to find the things that motivate you.
You can do this by posting little notes around the most common places in your home you visit each day. Write words of encouragement to yourself so you are constantly feeding your mind free positive thoughts throughout the week.
Tip 7: Set a deadline
One of the best ways to feel motivated in life is to create a deadline. When you have a timeline for something, it’s much easier to get started and see progress. Otherwise, you may find yourself putting it off forever.
If you’re struggling to achieve motivation, take action by setting a personal deadline. Give yourself a week or even just a few days to get something done. You’ll be surprised at how helpful it is and how quickly you can get it done when you have a timeline.
Tip 8: Take a break
If you’ve been working on something for a while and you’re still not feeling momentum, it’s okay to take a break. Sometimes, the best thing you can do is walk away from it for a bit. Come back later with fresh eyes and you may find that you’re more excited about it than ever and have a better ability to focus on the task at hand.
It’s important to listen to your body and take breaks when you need them. Otherwise, you’ll only end up feeling more stressed and overwhelmed which is not a good habit to get into.
Tip 9: Use a planner to get motivated
One of the best ways to stay motivated is to use a planner. When you have a system in place, it’s much easier to stay on track. Plus, it can be really satisfying to check things off your list.
Invest in a good planner and start using it to keep track of your goals. You’ll be surprised at how motivated you’ll feel when you see your progress each week. I’m obsessed with and currently use this planner from The Everygirl.
Tip 10: Surround yourself with positive people
Finally, one of the best ways to get motivated is to surround yourself with positive people. When you’re around people who are always complaining or negative, it’s hard to stay motivated. But when you’re around people who are supportive and upbeat, it’s much easier to stay on track.
