5 Ways to Motivate Yourself

1. STAY POSITIVE

Studies show when you’re happy within, that’s when you’re most productive and we all know productivity leads to success.

Have you realised that you procrastinate the most when you’re in a shitty mood? It’s true.

I understand it’s hard to be positive and optimistic when you’re not feeling it, so here are a few ways you can try to invite a happier mentality in:

  • If you don’t know what you’re good at yet, find out what it is and do it as much as possible.
  • Surround yourself with uplifting people, who support your craft, whatever it may be.
  • Remember, fundamentals are fundamental, so eat all the right foods (to avoid being HANGRY) and sleep as much as you need to sleep (because we both know how cranky you can be if you don’t sleep enough).

2. WELCOME VALUABLE PEER PRESSURE

Happiness is contagious when you surround yourself with people who are happy you’re way more likely to feel the same.

Surround yourself with people YOU want to be, that doesn’t necessarily mean copy them, but if they’re happy with an aspect of their life, surrounding yourself with them means that their happiness is probably going to rub off on you.

It’s simple science, as a friend you naturally want the best for your fellow friends, when something goes right for them or they succeed in something they’ve been working on, they’re happy and when they’re happy you’re happy for them, get it?

Keeping this same energy around you takes us back to point number 1, positivity, positivity, POSITIVITY.

3. MAKE RELEVANT CHANGES

Who has heard of the term to ‘outgrow someone’? Most people I assume.

Once upon a time, you were acquainted with someone, you were friends, close friends, possibly even in a relationship with them, however, as time has passed you’ve progressed in your own life and they may have not, or maybe they have progressed in a different direction.

Either way, you’ve grown apart, there’s no bad blood between the both of you, just a lot of space that you both fill up with meaningless conversation… well, I hate to break it to ya, it’s time to cut ’em off.

Another step in self-motivation is to ‘welcome valuable peer pressure,’ along with that comes welcoming positive people in your life. If you keep the people you’ve outgrown around you, ultimately, you’re holding yourself back.

4. HAVE SOME ‘ME TIME’

Throwback, to when I’d graduated and moved back home, I wasn’t unemployed but I was so unhappy with where I was in life. Even though I knew a full-time job within my graduate field wasn’t given to me after I finished uni, I didn’t realise how hard it would be to actually find a relevant job.

I was so unhappy with where I was in life, I started to stay home more, see my friends less and take out my sadness on the people closest to me.

One day I decided to go for a walk with my dog, while my dog took me for a walk (lol yes) I reflected on what was going on in my life and I don’t really know how but after taking time out to really reflect on life, I realised that I was blocking my own blessings. I wasn’t searching and applying for jobs as actively as I could’ve been and I wasn’t trying to surround myself with happy people as much as I should’ve been.

Since that day, I made it a priority to have ‘me time’ every now and again. I’d use this time to think about my life and the people closest to me, what I wanted in the near future and how I planned on getting what I wanted. I also use my ‘me time’ to make changes in my life, whether that be removing people from my day-to-day or changing what cereal I have on a regular basis.

5. REWARD YOURSELF – ACCORDINGLY

When you complete a task, whether it’s a big task or a small one you should reward yourself.

If you finish all the chores you needed to finish before 5pm, indulge yourself in those chocolates or glazed Krispy Kremes that have been calling you for the past 2 hours.

When you finally complete the assignment that you’ve been stressing over for the past 2 weeks, let your hair down and treat your DAMN self, YOU DID THAT.
