Motivation Monday

Since it's Monday and let's be honest 2020 has been a crazy year, I thought this would be a great time to reflect on motivation. Motivation is defined as "the general desire or willingness of someone to do something", and it is essential to have to meet our goals! As probably many of us already know, sustaining motivation can be easier said than done. How many times do we say we are going to clean the house, exercise, eat healthier, do our school work, finish everything on our to do list for work, etc to only NOT do it due to the lack of motivation? You are not alone! It can be challenging to always stay motivated especially with the world we are living in today, so below are some tips to hopefully support you with keeping your motivation up.

Tips to Support Motivation:

Reflect on WHY this goal is important to you:

  • If you have a strong enough purpose you are most likely going to be more driven

  • Simply ask yourself why am I doing this in the first place? If I were to make this change what impact would this have on my life 6 months to a year from now?

  • I encourage you to jot down your “why” and put it in a place you will see daily. For example: I love keeping a journal, and I also put a sticky note with my goals on my mirror.
