We know how hard it is to get up early and start the day with that big smile on your face.
But let’s face it – once you’ve done everything you need to do, you feel pretty happy, don’t you?
So let’s kick it off with a few tips on how to boost your motivation!
1. Go Outside
Go for a jog or a walk in the morning.
It’ll bring you more energy if it’s close to a park with lots of green, which is considered a good color to boost motivation and spark creativity. A researcher figured that seeing green makes people think of growth and it’s taken as a suggestion that we can improve task mastery and that we have room to grow.
So, if you don’t have time in the morning, maybe go for a walk during lunchtime or take a stroll in a garden close by.
2. Do the Things You Love
We know how hard it is to love your job sometimes, but besides that, do something you really enjoy.
Exercising should be fun, and not an obligation, so try to find something that makes you have fun while doing it.
Cut out activities you don’t like and learn to say no.
You’ll feel bad, but once you start doing things you really appreciate, you will forget about those boring ones.
3. Take Care of Your Health
We need to take care of our body and mind. But are you paying attention to the signals?
Maybe you’re too tired because of an allergy, or maybe you have constant migraines that affect your daily life.
Look for an indoor air quality monitor to help you keep up with what’s going on around you and get rid of those allergies that can cause headaches and fatigue.
Note from Kalen: Seriously look into these air monitors. I’ve just recently been learning about all of the stuff that could be in the air, and causing all kinds of health problems. I’ve worked out a deal to get you guys 15% off of a uHoo air quality monitor by clicking here.
4. Don’t Do Too Much
I’m not telling you to do nothing, but for sure don’t take on too much.
Set up some small, medium and large goals and go step-by-step, trying not to engage in several things at a time.
This way, you’re much more likely to succeed.
And remember – you only have 24 hours in each day, so do everything you need but also rest and take care of yourself.
5. Get a Reward
Hey, rewards are fun and super necessary.
Being rewarded can help you keep up with everything you need to get done, and for sure it helps your motivation to go out there and do everything you might need to do. It doesn’t need to be a big reward – a coffee after you’re done with a specially difficult task, a break after that super hard test or something you’ve bee wanting for a long time after you get something big done.
