Where can you find motivation? The truth is it is all around us if you know where to look. But with all the daily routines and events we may often feel overwhelmed and finding the motivation to be effective and productive in our daily tasks can often be overwhelming.
So how do we battle lack of motivation?
First of all, take a break.
You will probably notice you are a lot less productive when you are feeling overworked, sometimes we may be overworked and not even know it, no matter the case, it is important to take a break every now and then.
We all need our down time, and a break from the daily pressures can work miracles for your quality of life and recharging your batteries.
Inspiration can strike when you least expect it, and when it arrives it is important to act on that inspiration. But inspiration can also be found as long as you keep an open mind.
Going for a walk can be so much more than just a walk if you take the time to really appreciate your surroundings. The world is alive all around you, and looking small, seemingly meaningless things can really sparkle your imagination.
So can reading, read magazines you are interested in, if you like cooking, read a cookbook! Before you know it, you’;re cooking a gourmet meal.
Truth is, if you have an interest in something, it is important to nourish that interest to give you joy and satisfaction in life.
Nothing will ever happen unless you do it yourself, many people procrastinate, saying to themselves; "I’;ll get to it …" But the longer you procrastinate anything, the less motivated you will be to take any action at all, sometimes you might forget it all together.
When you take action, you will soon begin to notice you are more focused, your interest grows, and your desire to see it through increases.
Imagine a painter, when he starts he has no idea what the painting is going to look like, he may never have an idea in his head, but he will never know until it is finished. But as soon as he starts painting, things begin to happen, he may get new ideas and his picture begins to take form. And every stroke of his brush gives the painter a higher appreciation of his work.
Your subconscious mind will go through the same experience whenever you take on a task, giving you focus and a desire to complete the task.
This is because your mind becomes concentrated on the task at hand, subconsciously searching for solutions. So actually getting up and doing it, may be all it takes to get something done.
