How To Get Motivated Daily And Increase Your Productivity

At some point in our life, we will experience disappointments along the way. It’s an inherent part of our existence.

And no matter how hard you try, you will never get away from them.

But you have to bear in mind that our current situation doesn’t matter as much as how we respond to it.

We may not have control over the weather or how people would treat us, but we always have control over our attitude, and nobody can take that away from us.

Charles Swindoll once said that “attitudes are more important than facts.” It is how we choose to react that matters the most.

But in events that you feel unmotivated to carry on, I have listed five simple things on how to get motivated daily.

So without further ado, let’s begin…

How to Get Motivated Daily (Here are five simple steps)

Focus on Small Task

It’s easy to become overwhelmed once we’re stressed or pressured at our home or work—this is also true no matter how seemingly insignificant the issues are.

Also, it’s hard to perform or resume any activities once our mind is preoccupied with negative thoughts.

And from time to time, I am experiencing such instances as well.  And since I’m finding it hard to even continue whatever I’m doing, I have developed a ritual where I look for smaller productive tasks and focus on them for a moment.

For example, tidying up your home office, tending to your garden, a few minutes of household chores, or even exercising is sufficient to improve your confidence bit by bit.

Aside from its impact on our confidence, it also makes our minds at peace. Thus, it allows us to think more clearly and make better decisions along the way.

Make a Plan and Follow Through

From smaller tasks, you can also plan for bigger goals that aren’t necessarily related to work.

You can create a weekday plan, personal projects, or maybe you could create a bucket list of some of the places you want to visit—it doesn’t how far or near they are.

However, in making such plans, you have to be sure that they are achievable. At the onset of the process, you may have the tendency to over-prepare and exaggerate whatever you have in mind.

Don’t make your goals unrealistic, that it becomes difficult for you to achieve them.

Or, some have the tendency to under prepare that they end up being too easy and doesn’t amount to any work at all.

Anyway, the solution here is to categorize them into a series of smaller and achievable tasks—some sort of a milestone, if you will. Doing so is one of the effective ways of how to get motivated daily.

Also, you have to take note that we have different temperaments, so I obviously don’t know your limits.

Therefore, it is important that you introspect and ask yourself whether you have the capacity to accomplish such planned goals.

Workout Every Day

I know some of you might immediately link exercise or the gym to weight loss or making your physique more slender.

But do you know that there’s so much more in exercising than losing a few fats from your belly?

As we all know, obesity and being overweight is also associated with cardiovascular diseases and neurodegenerative disorder like dementia, just to name a few.

Also, and engaging in physical activity, especially during the early morning and before you carry out your daily chores, improves the quality of your outlook on life.

A scientific study found that exercising, even as simple as short-distance walks, releases endorphins.

It’s a neurotransmitter that has a direct positive impact on the regions of the nervous system that’s responsible for a persons’ overall positive emotional well-being.

Don’t Compare

Never compare yourself with anybody. Remember that you are unique and special in your own way.

Each one of us has a role to play in this life, and it is only you can influence the people around you as you do—and nobody else!

Anytime you feel overwhelmed and tempted being resentful about competition in the workplace or people you know advancing their careers before you do, then remember that you are only competing with yourself!

Take note also that being overwhelmed and constantly pressured by such though is indeed stressful and toxic. And it is costing you your health and robbing you of your peace of mind.

Whenever you are faced with such concerns, remember this important note—our goal in life is not to outdo everybody else and become the best of the best.

It’s quite the contrary. Our aim should be to become a better person each day and outdo ourselves from yesterday.

Be Grateful

In our materialistic generation, it’s indeed hard to focus on the most important things.

We are so distracted by the trends and “what’s in or not” that we are unable to appreciate our surroundings.

For some people, the root cause of feeling unmotivated about just anything is just not being content with what they have.

Our inability to be grateful can lead to emotional distress—you constantly compare yourself with others and the compulsion to accumulate more things.

There are many things to appreciate if you could only learn how to observe your surroundings and find something to be grateful about. Some of them are your loved ones and friends, for example.

Your pets and garden may also be a source of comfort whenever you feel down and unmotivated.

And the reason for such feeling is that act of gratitude or being thankful develops optimism and a positive outlook towards life in general.

Also, this is the case with people advocating minimalism. They don’t have that much stuff, but they seem to be happier compared to people with a lot of possessions.

Final thoughts

I hope my simple list has provided you sufficient information about how to get motivated daily.

You may also turn to them whenever you feel down in the dumps and in need of encouragement.

Well, I guess that’s just about it!

Thank you for the time! I hope to see you next time!

Peace!
