5 Ways To Stay Motivated (Even When You Do Not Want To)

A few months ago, I was feeling rundown, exhausted and unmotivated. Although I had a number of projects to complete and knew exactly what I needed to do, I just didn’t want to do it.

I noticed myself looking for other things to do that were totally unimportant, in order to feel like I was doing something. Have you ever experienced a situation like that? You know what you need to do but you just don’t want to do it or couldn’t be bothered doing it!

Luckily for me, I was able to recognise my behaviour and quickly turned it around. Reflecting back on that experience, I was in an unmotivated state for about a week. I had to do something different so I applied some of the tactics below.

While it may not be necessary to apply all of them, applying one or two of them will make a positive difference and help us get back our motivation.
