10 motivation ideas

1.Two-minute rule

Getting started is always the hardest part – make yourself work on a task for two minutes. Chances are, this will turn into a much longer period of focused work.

2.Self-evaluate

Understanding the problem at hand simplifies finding a solution. Analyze why you feel unmotivated, and what you can do about this underlying cause.

3.Gratitude List

Gratitude is a simple yet powerful helper when you feel down. When unmotivated, write a list of things you are grateful for, making it as extensive or as brief as you would like.

4.Physical exercise 

Moving your body regularly not only releases endorphins but also reinforces your mental toughness and energy, your pursuits of your goals in all areas of your life.

5.Quick vision boards

Put together a collection of images that reflects what you want your life to look like in the future. Refer back to this to remind yourself of the bigger picture.

6.Affirmations and quotes

Write down the words that inspire you that you easily connect with. Even if it’s not directly related to motivation, recalling your quotes from our favorite authors can boost your mind and add up your energy levels.

7.Writing

Writing down all your clusters of emotions and starting with the new energy. It’s therapy.

8.Pomodoro technique

The Pomodoro technique helps stay focused for 25 mins and helps in relaxation for 5 mins, which makes your brain function more effectively.

9.Reverse psychology

Accept that you feel unmotivated and that you don’t have to do anything – you have a choice to pursue your goals and make the most out of the present moment.

10.Make it fun

Changing your mindset makes any task enjoyable. Write out any three things from your to-do list: is it challenging?

Question to ask yourself

Somedays for questing and a few days for answering the question in my mind. Question and answering to myself sometimes help me to reflect my thoughts with clear ideas, which makes life easier. So have a few lists of questions here today. I would like if you guys to try as an exercise for today. It will just take a few minutes of your day.

What am I grateful for? 

Gratefulness is an important part of life, by answering this question it will bliss your day. As due to our busy lifestyle we get neglected by our work, and lack of time management. As we take many things granted which we get easily in our life, which may not be possible for the other people to have. Even the basic necessities such as food,shelter and clothes. During the pandemic many people lost their jobs still we got the food to eat we should be grateful for it. 

What I want to be like in 5 years? Or next 10 years? 

The more you think and the more your imagination will enhance your brain. Instead of thinking of the miserable past and getting upset over it. Get start thinking for your future self. What I will be like, what things I have achieved, how I look like, am I happy, which position I’m working on. I am still working on my passion, hobbies.

What did I learn today? 

I might have read somewhere that,”1% improvement a day you will eventually be 37% improvement. So do you want to improve yourself 37%  by the end of this year. Doing nothing at all vs doing 1% improvement a day which you prefer. Learning this is the key to survival in this competitive world of Gen Z now.

Did I do something that my future self will be thankful for? 

Asking this question everyday at night, before going to bed will help you to do better for tomorrow. Its important of recognizing yourself. And keeping in track that you are on the path to reach your dream goals. It will bring the smile on your face to that I did something worth it.

What makes me feel happy? 

It is important to recognize  that we draw our attention from negative emotions. Its easy to get in trap of negative emotions, because one thought we make it enter in our mind it starts inviting the more negative emotions. Frequently practice meditation it helps in regaining our conscious mind in present.

What are the things that are making me sad? How should I get rid of them? 

Start this question with what are the things making you sadder and then ask why the more you ask why as a question the more you get clear with your thoughts. After you list out and clear with things, think of getting rid of it.

Am I being kind to myself and others? 

I believe that everyone should strive to do something selfless or something that provides positive implications for others as well as yourself so it’s important to stop and think about what you are doing in this regard. Be kind we don’t know what others might be suffering from. As everyone has a story.

What questions do you often ask yourself ? Let me know in the comments.

Time management

Making you productive by giving the idea to think different. We have 168 hours a week. I heard this statement from a talk show. Where she was talking about time management. She was given experience on time management from where she had learned.

There was one person who was not willing to reply, to her mails and all the work related stuff. 

So in short and in an easy way let me tell you the example of my friend.

 I message her several times a day. And she didn’t reply to me nor did she answer my call. At one certain day I suddenly met her and asked what work you were stuck in. She didn’t even have time to reply to my messages, calls and mails. 

And she was free to go for an outing with her family and friends and post all the pictures over social media. So she said “It is not about how busy I am, it’s not about my time management. I don’t care what you think or you are not my priority.” 

I don’t care if it’s equal to it’s not my priority. So I came to a conclusion if there is something which I don’t want to work on means I don’t give my priority to those things.

There is a list of pending work in your desk and messed up in your mind. which you are procrastinating all of this while. Now you get to the point, why you were not able to do it because all that pending task are not your priority. 

If it’s your priority then start making the time for it, analyze how much you waste time on that unwanted things wasting on the others.

To do list

Don’t make a long to-do list. It’s not going to work all the time, some things or other things are going to appear. It’s not your mind world , it’s a universe controlling us. Make a 3 priority goals for a day. Take a small step towards your goals.

It’s better to take the top priority of the day instead of long listed tasks, which might motivate you in the middle of a task, struggling to concentrate. All the tasks have to be completed today itself.

Awards might help you to keep up

After making the to-do list and priority tasks, give yourself rewards.it might be  a small task, still reward yourself. Never forget to clap for your own efforts. Sometimes there might be no one to appreciate your efforts that time rewarding and clapping your efforts will uplift you to keep working.

What productive tasks do you do? How do you manage your time? Let me know in the comments. 

Even though you are busy, never forget to give time or a smile to your loved ones.

bye-bye

Happy me

Happy me didn’t suddenly appear one day. It has been a journey for me. Learn from lessons and doing wrongs and taking wrong decisions, regretting all day long. Crying and being alone all this feels before you can say “happy me”. 

As everyone must experience some kind of pain that will help them to feel that feeling of happiness.

Climbing the mountains is a struggle, losing our energy, fighting through the winds, and crossing all obstacles. Now that you’re on top of that mountain you can see that mesmerizing view. Which gives that beautiful feeling of happiness. And it becomes an unforgettable lesson or you can say memory in life.

We all need to learn from every tiny thing happening in life. Every person in our life gives us a lesson.

1.Forgiving others 

So I’m recently reading this book from which I learned that forgiving others is step 1 for letting yourself free from all the anger, unhappiness, and grudges. It is not just that we are forgiving for their needs, it is for our benefit, it’s for our selfishness.

We are making ourselves free from that trap of unhappiness and grudges feeling.

2. Accepting that changes

Accepting that change is a part of life. Every single person changes as the situation of that person’s life changes. Bad situation or good makes us mold in our behavior. If I have to grow and glow so I have to accept all those faults and learn from them.

Accepting ourselves is the second step for that happy me.

3. Kind to yourself and others

Being a kind person doesn’t require cost, instead, it requires effort to be kind. Now there is one task for you, just observe yourself what things you talk to yourself, are the kind words? Are they criticizing words? Or have you been rude to yourself?

Be kind is the 3rd step: Talk to yourself even while you are thinking or talking to others.

4. Admire instead of compare

As we are the young generation of this world. We phase this problem often while using social media apps, most of the time we compare ourselves with those other people and end up upsetting ourselves.

So instead of that, I learned this new trick, which is that we should admire them as one of our goals in our life, and chase those goals till we reach them.

Doesn’t it sound so positive and motivating? I think you should definitely try this.

Let us know your opinions in the comments. thank you for all the love and support.
