7 Ways To Motivate Yourself

Everyone can feel unmotivated sometimes but how can we get motivated again? In this blog post, I am giving you 7 Ways On How To Motivate Yourself.

Remind Yourself Why You Want To Do It

First of all, you need to remind yourself why you want to do it. Write down the reasons why you are doing it. If you don’t feel motivated to do your homework write down why you want to do it, it could be because you want to get an A on it. Do you want to go for a run? Then the reason might be because you want to be healthier and fitter.

Break Your Project Into Smaller Tasks

It can be very hard to start doing something if it’s something big that you have to do, that’s why you need to break that big task into smaller tasks. For example, if you have to write an essay but you don’t feel motivated to do it, start by finding a topic to write about and when you are done finding a topic you can take a 5-10 min break, after that, you can start by writing the title and then 5-10 lines and then take a break and so on. But I promise you, that ones you get started you won’t be taking as many breaks since you are already doing the task and you just want to get it over with. 

Promise Yourself A Reward After You Get Something Done

This will get you motivated I promise! Is there a movie that you’ve always wanted to watch? Tell yourself that you can watch it once you are done doing the task. Are you craving candy or something else, then promise yourself that you can go buy it after you get your work done. This way you’ll look forward to something so you’ll end up doing that task that you’ve pushed aside just to get that reward.

Listen To Motivational Videos

When you are doing your makeup or getting ready for school or work listen to motivational videoes or even just putting on worship videoes, this will be more beneficial for you and make you more motivated. You’ll stop thinking negative thoughts and worrying about what you have to do for the day. Once you start listening to motivational speeches it’ll teach you something new so you’ll actually also learn something from it.

Do The Toughest Task First

If you do the toughest task first you’ll only have the easier task left and since you’ve already done the toughest task you’ll do the easiest task as well since you just want to get it over with.

Give Yourself Breaks To Avoid Burnout

If you don’t give yourself breaks you’ll feel exhausted and be more tempted to procrastinate which is not good. Give yourself a 5-10 min break after you’ve done your work for a bit. You can even try the Pomodoro technique where you have to work for 25 min and then take a 5 min break and then start working for 25 again and take a 5 min break. After 4 Pomodoros you are going to take a longer break of about 15-20 min. You can click here and try the technique out!

Create A Routine

Find out what time of the day you work best, is it in the morning or in the evening? Then you should start working on your project at that time fx if you are going to build a business you should at least spend an hour a day building your business. It’s just like going to school from 8 am to 3 pm, you just can’t do anything than go to school in that time frame, so by creating your own routine, you shouldn’t be doing anything other than doing work, even though you are in a bad mood, you should at least just try to do some work.
