Sometimes we need a little help with motivating ourselves to do things. To some, it is easy, and to others, it is easier said than done. There is nothing wrong with having trouble being motivated. That is why we tend to procrastinate sometimes, lack of motivation, lack of ideas and sometimes, we’re just plain lazy. Here are some steps to help you with motivation and will probably get you started on what you need to do.


1.) Start with the smallest task


Spend your time doing five minutes of brainstorming, planning or thinking. Think of the smallest thing you need to do to get yourself started. Break what you need to do in small steps and do them.


2.) Start with the easiest


Think of what is the easiest thing you need to do before actually getting started. Once you thought of it, do it. It will help you get motivated to do the difficult tasks.


3.) Take breaks


Don’t try to do everything all at once, if you need to, take a break. I understand wanting to get everything done at one time, but you’ll drain your energy and feel less motivated to do what it is you need to do. Break up you tough tasks in to small ones and take breaks in between. This will help keep your energy up.


4.) Don’t wait until you feel motivated


Do not wait to feel motivated. If you do something and start off doing the easiest and small tasks, you will feel more motivated to dot the more difficult tasks. Think of something you’re not motivated about doing and then do it. I know it is easier said than done, but you can do it!!


5.) Budget your energy


Don’t use all of your energy doing one thing. Instead, try and use some energy doing one thing more energy for the harder tasks. Do not push yourself too hard to do something. You might end up hurting yourself.


Even though you aren’t motivated and don’t have a lot of energy, try to use some of the energy you have to take care of yourself or do something nice for yourself. You deserve it!
