3 Simple Tips To Combat Low Motivation

Do you struggle to get your A into G and get motivated? Whether it is to work that little bit harder to finish a project or job, to get up at 6 am to get to the gym, or maybe even to take the time to clean up at night so you wake up to a fresh, clean home each morning. Finding motivation and building habits is an important life skill that can carry you far. In this blog, I am going to dig into how to find your motivation and build habits so you can feel successful in any endeavour.

What is Motivation?

It is the drive to complete a task for a desired outcome. So for example – the task to get to the gym & move, the outcome is feeling good and good health.

Do we need motivation to succeed in any area of our life?

Answer is No. That is not motivation it is about forming good habits. We all need motivation to get started but it is the habits that allow us to keep going. Any habit in life can be changed. With a little motivation, a touch of persistence exercise will & can become part of our daily routine.

Find your reason – Why do we need to exercise?

We all need to find our own reason that resonates for each of us. Something that is personal and powerful. Mine is…..I want to be fit & healthy & to be a good role model for our 6 year old daughter Mercedes. We need to find a reason and remind ourselves of it everyday.

Self Talk & Thoughts!

Be mindful and kind to yourself. Being aware of your own thoughts and how you talk to yourself. Each of us have had times when we talk ourselves out of exercise and reassure ourselves that being at home in our PJ’s on the couch watching Netflix is far better for us. If they are negative thoughts that come into play when you attempt to exercise – focus on your reason, your motivation to exercise.

The saying goes…..

“You don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to get started to be great!”
Start slow, if you go out to hard you will give up faster. Exercise needs to be part of our lives. Small targets, weekly or monthly and once you have reached that then a reward is in order. Rewarding good habits means that they are likely to become permanent. Rewards might be a good movie or a nice cuppa coffee with a friend…whatever it is take time to breathe & enjoy!
