These days, it seems like everyone is struggling to find motivation. Maybe you’ve noticed your friends are starting to feel down or not give their all in work and school due to a lack of ambition. For those who have already given up on themselves and others for the year, there are ways that can help get them back onto the track so they don’t miss out this time around!

We all have moments where we feel unmotivated. Sometimes it’s because we’re tired, sometimes it’s because the task at hand is difficult, and other times it’s just not something that interests us. But there are some things you can do to get motivated and stay motivated so you don’t let your willpower slip away or give up on a goal too soon.

Here are 7 tips for staying motivated: 

  1. Break down large tasks into smaller ones and make sure they’re achievable
  2. Find someone who shares the same goals as you -Set realistic goals that will provide motivation when accomplished (e.g., if an exercise goal is to lose 10 pounds by summer, break this down into 3 pounds in one month)
  3. Break your goal down into smaller tasks with deadlines.
  4. Create a support system around yourself by surrounding yourself with people who are like-minded or supportive.
  5. Avoid distractions such as social media sites when trying to complete your task
  6. Stay healthy: When we are physically well, it’s easier to feel happy and excited about life. Take care of yourself so that you can be at your best with ease!
  7. Be grateful: Make time every day or week (or even once a month) to reflect on all the things in life that make you happy. Gratitude will help improve your mood and give you more positive energy!
