How to Regain Lost Motivation

Anxiety, Therapy

Let us know if this sounds familiar.

You wake up Monday morning full of energy and ready to conquer all of your goals…

But by the time Thursday comes around, your motivation is long gone. Motivation is very interesting, as it can come and go very quickly.

You can either sit around and wait for it to find you. Or you can go out and find it. By the end of this article, you will learn exactly how you can regain lost motivation.

Stop Overthinking:

Sometimes the best way to complete a straightforward or complicated task is to jump right in without thinking about it.

When we overthink tasks, we are much more likely to make mistakes and experience anxiety. When our mind is relaxed, it is much easier to focus and get things done.

Successfully completing tasks is very rewarding and can increase confidence and motivation.

Look for Inspiration:

We all have different things that make us tick.

Some people get inspired by books, while others get inspired by music.

Again, no one knows you better than you know yourself. Listen to your body and your mind. It knows what it needs. 

Celebrate All Wins:

Celebrating all wins is so important – even the really small ones. Have you ever had one of those days where you crossed two dozen items off your list, but still felt like nothing got accomplished?

It happens all the time, especially with more mundane tasks.

Here’s an example.

Cold calling 20 potential clients can be exhausting, time-consuming and draining. 

But getting new clients is a process, and at the end of the day, it will be well worth it.

You just have to think about the future and celebrate every single successful phone call. Even if you don’t sign any clients that day, you are planting a seed and setting yourself up for the future.

Be your own best friend. Be your own cheerleader.

Create a Motivating Environment:

Our environment can significantly impact our mood and overall motivation.

Working in the exact same spot all day can get a little boring sometimes. Especially now that most of us are working from home, we have more flexibility to move around and experiment.

One day you can work in your room, and the next day you can work in the kitchen. 

Simply looking at a new set of walls every so often can be very inspiring.

Final Thoughts:

Regaining lost motivation is definitely a process. There will always be days or weeks where your motivation is stronger than others. As time goes on, you will eventually learn which tips and tricks help you the most.
