How to stay motivated

Sometimes staying motivated is difficult, especially when you’re tired, overwhelmed or feel stuck in a rut. Here are ten simple ways to stay motivated and on track.

1)    Find a good balance. You’re more likely to stay on task if you feel like you have some sort of control over what you’re doing. If you need to stay motivated at work, make sure that you also make time for down time and doing other things.

2)    Re-evaluate your situation and make sure that you’re doing something you actually enjoy. All the balance in the world is isn’t going to make you feel more motivated in a job that you hate.

3)    Work toward short-term attainable goals. You should always have something to look forward to even if it’s something small.

4)    Break your tasks down and set yourself realistic daily limits. Manage your time effectively and stick to your daily to-do list.

5)    Stop procrastinating. Be your own best friend by getting everything done on time so that you’re not constantly stressing out.

6)    When you’re done with work for the day, don’t think about it. Be mindful and in the present. Allow yourself enjoyable time off and reward yourself once in a while.

7)    Be positive. Having a perpetual negative perspective about yourself and your situation is only going to make you feel more overwhelmed.

8)    Do your best every day and be happy with that. Don’t expect more from yourself than what is humanly possible. Don’t worry about things that are out of your control.

9)    Surround yourself with generally positive people. It’s easy to get stuck in a cycle of complaining with friends and colleagues. While it is good to vent every now and then, make sure that you are spending most of your time motivating and inspiring one another.

10) Take proper breaks daily, weekly and annually. Give yourself time to properly rest, recharge and come back to yourself.
