If you are here on this page I think it’s because you are looking for some kind of motivation and/or inspiration to get moving with your life. You know you’ve got to get out of this rut. It’s a new year but you just don’t know how to start.
Well, the good news is, you did start! The fact that you are reading and looking for ways to motivate you is a good sign. First and foremost, I have to say that if you believe you are clinically depressed or have serious health issues, please seek medical advice.
For those of you just caught up in the “blah” mood of the season, the weather or whatever the reason…let’s get going!!
HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE
Step 1: Make a list of things you want to do today. – Organization is the key to anything! Whether you have your own business, work for someone or you are a stay at home mom or in the PTA, you have to get organized! Sitting in your sweat pants all day on the computer is not going to get you going! Prepare a list of things to do, even if it’s only 2 or 3 things. Start somewhere.
STEP 2: Be grateful. Think of and write down 2-5 things you are grateful for. Think of what your life would be like if you didn’t have these things or people in them. Remind yourself, why you want these things and why you want to be a better person.
STEP 3: Get moving. Literally! If you are at home, go run an errand or go for walk around the block. It will help to get your endorphins going. If you stay stagnant all day, your brain too will become stagnant and that’s when all the negative thoughts creep in. If you are at the office, try to go outside during break and get some fresh air, a different perspective than being behind your computer screen all day.
Start with just these three things today or maybe even tomorrow, (if you started reading this too late in the day I’ll give you a break on this one!)
