From compliments to accountability, motivation has many approaches. Goals, rewards, milestones—what works for you?
Getting and Staying Motivated
We’ve all been there. On day one of any new routine, you feel excited and energized.
But fast forward a bit and sometimes your motivation might feel pretty nonexistent. That’s because one of the trickiest things about motivation is that it isn’t a constant. No one (really we mean no one) is motivated all the time. And that’s ok! Losing motivation doesn’t mean that you’re weak or that you don’t want to achieve your goals. This is a normal part of the journey that everyone experiences in their own way.
The Power of Planning Ahead
If you stop to think about it, you can probably predict some days, times, and situations that might make it tough for you to stay motivated. By identifying these situations ahead of time, you can figure out some creative ways to cope such as:
- Practicing self-kindness and reminding yourself that everyone faces these struggles
- Treating yourself to a non-food reward that lifts your spirit
- Paying it forward and offering support to someone else
- Making time for acts of self-care
- Engaging in some movement that you enjoy (take a walk, play with the dog, garden, do some yoga, etc.)
- Journaling about how you’re feeling
Look at you go! Stay tuned for your next course on rituals and habits.
