Tips for Motivation
Apr 14,2016

It's sometimes difficult to motivate ourselves, or even to be motivated by others. A lack of motivation causes us to feel stuck and uninspired, which can take a toll on our productivity. First, get fresh air. When we're not feeling motivated, it is usually do to a lack of stimulation. The best solution? Nature. The best way to become engaged with the world around you is to go on a 5-10 minute walk, without the distraction of electronics. Second, work in chunks of time. Break down projects to schedule 5 minute breaks in between each tasks. While this may seem to stretch the time out, it will actually cause much less of a burn out.  Also, focus on the feeling of it being done, rather than the time it takes to get there. This provides a "light at the end of the tunnel" feeling early on.
