1. Get Active
A lot of times it’s hard to get motivated if you’re not in a good mood. Research has shown that working out multiple times a week for a reasonable period of time can reduce the symptoms of depression. Exercising for 30 minutes which can help to reduce stress. Also, if you’re pushing yourself in your workouts, you’re testing your boundaries and this can be really healthy.
2. Have the time of your life
“There’s no fun in a perfect life. So make a risk. Take a chance. Go where the wind takes you. Have fun.” – Jenny C.
If you’re having fun, you’re going to be more motivated to do great work.
Do you notice that when you’re having fun, you’re more charismatic, upbeat and optimistic? Do you notice that you’re more productive because you’re actually enjoying the work? Do you notice you’re motivating other team members because you’re making the work environment awesome?
“Meditation is not a means to an end. It is both the means and the end.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
We live in a world of information overload. Because of that, our brains sometimes get overstimulated and that’s not a good thing. That’s why we need to meditate.
Calm down. Close your eyes. Lie down.
4. Brainstorm your ideas and write them down
Not all of your ideas will be good. It doesn’t matter. Write them down anyway.
Your great ideas will come when you least expect them.
Eventually, after you jot down 100 ideas, chances are that you’ll have at least one good idea. That’s incredibly motivating when you discover you can come up with good ideas. So start jotting them down.
5. Visualize the future and go make it happen
Think about what you’re going to achieve. Think about the impact you’re going to make. Think of the future you’re going to create.
Go make it happen. NOW.
Because it’s never too late to be awesome.
