Feeling unmotivated? Here are some tips
Last Update: Sep 11, 2020
Hey guys. I thought I'd write this post for anyone who is struggling to sit down and write. Today I wanted to finish and publish a post. Unfortunately that didn't happen yet. However I did learn some things about motivating myself.Set a goal of the day
If you have a specific goal in mind you're more likely to get stuff done. Set goals for each day and make them realistic.
You could make a to do list. If you're like me and don't like lists you can set goals through wealthy affiliate. You can even make them private if they are personal.Don't beat yourself up
If you don't complete your goal don't put yourself down. This will only make it worse. Maybe you didn't get everything done that you wanted. That's okay there's always tomorrow. You shouldn't push yourself to hard.
You shouldn't punish yourself for not achieving your goals, but you also should reward yourself if you complete it. That way you have an incentive for doing your tasksTake Breaks
Let yourself relax. If you push yourself too hard you may get frustrated. Know your limits and don't let yourself work too much. Let yourself have a break or take a nap every once in awhile
It's great to go for a walk, play with a pet, or call a friend for a bit during these breaks. It's not good For your back go be sitting so long. Ten minutes every hour is the recommended break time to let your muscles move. You can do a ten minute exercise during the breaks. You'll feel great afterwards and more motivated.Hope this helped
I hope this post helped for anyone feeling unmotivated. They help me out a lot especially if I take a break and talk to a loved one for a bit. I can show someone my progress during this break and explained how I did certain things. Take this advice from someone who often feels like doing nothing due to depression. They actually work! Thanks for reading.
Good post. That is so true. It is like taking baby steps. Once you reach a goal set another. Thanks!!
It certainly does help Lex. Setting goals are important. So is making sure you have some 'Me' time. Jim

Motivation, or the lack there of, can definitely be challenging. I find that if I set the right goals, making sure that they’re specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and have a set time frame for being completed, it’s a lot easier for me to not only stay motivated by my goals, but also reach them. This technique when setting your goals is what’s known as “SMART Goals.” “SMART” is just an acronym used to help you remember specific criteria your goals should meet to ensure that you’ll be more successful at reaching them. The acronym “SMART” stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. Hope that helps. You might have already heard of it, but thought I’d share just in case.
For me, the thing that challenges me the most isn’t motivation, but rather writer’s block. I’ve learned over the years that the best way to deal with that, though, is to just sit down and start writing what ever comes to mind—even if what comes to mind is irrelevant. That usually gets my creativity working and heading in the right direction.
Well, wish you the best Lex666.
Thanks for sharing.
