What's Your Tips For Getting and Staying Motivated?

in life •  last year 

Doing the everyday routine is hard. You are facing periods of high and low motivations and you need to deal with them. Psychologists say, that there two types of motivations - positive & negative.

Positive motivations focus on the positive things that will happen when you take action. For example: Having the everyday workout would allow you to maintain your weight and stay healthy.

Negative motivations focus on the negative backlash that will occur if you don’t take action. For example: Not visiting a doctor at the proper time would affect your health.

Today, I am going to share my tips for getting and staying motivated. Please, share yours in the comment below.

  • Relax when Motivation Subsidies, Practice Mindfulness Meditation

Usually, for myself, motivation will vary depending upon my mood, health and many factors beyond our immediate control. Taking yoga lessons and sometimes the meditation helps me to support my mood doing the workout at the same time. It's a great way to relax and forget about everyday problems.

Meditation changes the density and thickness of connections in our prefrontal cortex which as we mentioned is the part of the brain responsible for motivation. It also improves our awareness of our emotional state which can become a great ally when procrastination arises. We also know that regular meditation improves alertness and concentration.


  • Friendships evaluation

Research has shown that maintaining friendships with values aligned with yours is going to help while those which conflict with your values are going to hurt.

Having a support from the friends and family is important. As well, sharing ideas, fears, goals always help to find the right way to achieve goals and get the right words and keep going.


  • Get enough Vitamin D and Sleep Efficiently

Sleeping well is hard when you need to work hard or you are stress out about accomplishing something. But this is super important. Research shows great sleep improves our levels of motivation. The great start is aiming for 8 hrs of efficient sleep. By efficient sleep is meant the period of time, when you're lying down you're in a deep sleep. For those who need more time for lying down may be getting 8 hrs but it won't be efficient.

Another thing is to try eating healthy food and keep the healthy diet - low sugar, more fruits, vegetables, healthy fats.

Thanks for reading this article, I would appreciate guys, if you would share your tips.

I find when my mood in low I withdraw into myself. Be with your friends or find something to do with your friends when you lack motivation. Invite someone for a walk. Better yet do something for someone. Acts of charity always brighten my mood.

right, totally forgot about charity, it also helps me... the thing is that I am facing now the period of the low motivation... prob it's fall coming. don't have enough energy to do stuff...

I like your dedication towards fitness .. 👌👌👍

thanks! actually, it's a huge part of my life!

Интересный пост! Трудно однозначно ответить - ты как всегда права!!!
Хочу спросить: тут у тебя нарисовался бот "boomerang", какая от него польза?

а где бумеранг?

Ух ты... вон оно как!

По статье. Это серьёзный разговор. И всё правильно пишешь. И я всё понимаю, но... не всегда получается заставить себя делать что-то нужное и полезное для себя.
А вот со сном в 8 часов - это просто беда. Я думаю, что мне достаточно 6 часов при постоянном режиме жизненном. Конечно, если я себя перепрограммирую на 8 часов сна в сутки, то буду спать эти 8 часов, но тогда нужно отказываться от работы и я не смогу содержать семью.
Вот и вся стимуляция. :(
