Becoming aware of your surroundings and the emotional state that you're in is the first major step to motivation. First, sit or step back and breath. Take a moment to check in with your self and what's going on around you. What is in your surroundings that can help or hurt your motivation? Next, check in with your emotions. Are you feeling guilty, insecure, sad, etc.? Addressing how you feel is how you can move on and motivate yourself. If you feel stressed maybe you need to take a moment and meditate. If you feel tired maybe it is time to go for a walk or sit quietly for a moment. (It can also mean you need to sleep or take a nap) Surrounding can also include people. Are you surrounded by negativity? Time to call in the troops a.k.a your suport network. Friends can be the biggest help in helping you to become aware and also to motivate you.
Accept your current state, how you feel, what you think and what you are going to do. Don't fight with yourself, don't talk yourself out of the negative emotions. Emotions are powerful and when you work through them you will gain a sense of accomplishment, refreshment and strength. It will give you a motivation boost that you can do anything you put your mind to. This also implys to accepting others and how they are. Practice non judgement and acceptance withing your daily life.
Redirect your focus with questions. Is this the Truth? Is This Helpful? Is this Inspiring? Is it Necessary? Is it Kind? Focusing on actions versus emotions makes things easier. When you engage yourself in what you are doing, thinking and feeling you start to become accountable. This is one of the major steps in self acceptance, forgiveness and growth.
