Feeling unmotivated? Tips on how to take charge of your future

Mental Wellbeing

Along the way, we may forget about where we want to be and the end goals we set out for ourselves to achieve. We tend to get used to our everyday routine that we may start becoming comfortable with the way things are. This can happen to the best of us. However, having a daily routine is one of the most important habits you have which keeps you motivated.

Losing motivation is nothing to be ashamed of. Most of us strive for the best outcomes for ourselves but we can be led astray once in a while. 

However, there are many strategies that you can incorporate to ensure you stay motivated and be the best version of yourself. Read on to find out how you can embrace the roadblocks and be more motivated in reaching your goals:

Be mindful

Being mindful of your thoughts means allowing yourself to reflect on your journey in the present and where you want to be in the future.

If ‘I could do so much more’ is your common thought, it may be worth changing the way you think. It is not about how much more you could do but more on all the baby steps you would take to achieve your goal. By breaking down the steps into small achievable steps, you can avoid overwhelming yourself with all the steps you need to take – which is often the demotivator. 

Adapting the way in which you approach your thoughts can significantly and positively impact the outcome of these thoughts and bring you closer to your goal. 

Focus on you

Taking time out of our day to practise ways to focus on ourselves act as a constant reminder of what it is that we want. Whether you are looking to pamper yourself or just improve aspects of your life for the better, it is a practice of self-worth that will make us feel better. 

Journaling is a good way where you can take some time out of your day to focus on yourself. Here are a few journaling prompts to start you out:

  1. What will you be doing today to make yourself feel good?
  2. Are you satisfied with how things are going? What would you change?
  3. What could you do differently today that would make it better?

Making little changes and revisiting your motivations is the first step to making long-term change. 

Review your actions

It is very easy to fall into the routine of working, family and friends. This continuous routine may lead you to feel down and lack happiness. Although, this is normal and a regular part of life, we forget to ask ourselves these questions:

  • Are you doing what makes you happy?
  • Are you enjoying where you are at the moment? What could you do to make it better?
  • Is what you’re doing benefiting your short-term or long-term goals?

Take time to think about your actions. Reviewing how some actions improve your mood and overall wellbeing is a great way to begin making big changes.
