What To Do When You Feel Demotivated

This year has been a taxing year for many people all around the world. From job losses, salary reductions, loved ones passing away, relationships ending or just feeling incredibly overwhelmed. We have all had to make changes in our lifestyles to adjust to the new normal.

We may all feel a little demotivated or down in the dumps at times — this is okay! We are only human and we need to learn to meet ourselves with love and kindness along the way.

When I start getting into a slump and lose inspiration or drive, I try to shift my focus and see how I can get myself back on track. Here are a few of the things that I do to help myself stay focused.

Write down your goals

I sit down and write out my goals, even if I’ve written them down before. I put my goals into different categories: career, health, spirituality and relationships. I then put down the goals I want to achieve within each of the categories, and I try to keep each list of goals to a maximum of 3. Then I list different things under each goal that I will need to do to achieve those goals. It helps me stay on track and, oddly enough, lifts my spirits.

Spend time with family and friends

Take a night off and just enjoy your own company

Write a daily gratitude list

Things may be tough at times, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. It all takes time, but there are simple and effective things to do to help you get yourself back on your feet and rearing for another day ahead of you!
