Motivation can be difficult to find sometimes.
How we lose our motivation? Who knows, but it’s important to get it back! So how are we suppose to do that honestly.
A few years ago, I had stumbled upon lack of motivation. I had felt it before, but this time it felt like it was taking over my life.
Usually I’d find my motivation again, naturally. Sometimes it took a little time but this time was different. I felt depression every inch of my body after struggling with the passing of a close friend and my dad. Most days I just had so much emotion I couldn’t fathom doing something productive.
Force yourself, was always what I lived by. If it matters get it done. Truly that was creating burnout CONSTANTLY. I made a decision to take some time off of work because everyday was awful, and it wasn’t seeming to just get better like all the times before.
Slowly, I got back up. I fell back in love with being alive….. it took a while but motivation started seeping through my body and mind again.
If you’ve been feeling rough, having trouble finding motivation hang in there and believe that spark to ignite your life is right around the corner. Here’s 4 things that helped me tremendously to get my inspiration back!
– Accept where you are. Surrender to what you’ve been through, and the emotions it has brought. Give yourself some grace and accept it. Maybe you failed, maybe you experienced a heartbreaking loss. Let it in, let it be what it is. And then and only then we can start to let go of the heaviness that may be holding us down.
– Exercise. Get moving honey! It doesn’t always feel the best to start working out again but once you are moving your body motivation usually comes pouring in. Sometimes it really is as simple as get moving and you will start to feel better in a creative way even.
– Meditation. Usually if you’ve tried a number of things but you keep losing your motivation finding the cause in your subconscious mind could be the answer. We sometimes pick up bad habits along the way and to release that may be holding us back is sometimes just what we need to move forward. Your mind is a powerful tool make sure it is working for you and not against you. For extra boost in your meditations I recommended listening with binaural beats.
Last thing I will say I might lose some of you, but this is where the real magic is for getting your motivation back easily: Balance your Solar Plexus. This is an energy system we all have inside of ourselves. It’s where our confidence and motivation lie and if it is out of wack we are too. Look up ways to balance this area, for example sunlight helps us connect to this part of ourselves. It could be as simple as going to sit in the sun but it could make a huge difference energetically, if you’re into that kinda stuff (like me).
I hope this empowers you to get motivated, just sharing what has truly helped me! Thank you all for reading.
