Hey everyone, how are you all!?
I went for a walk yesterday. It was so frosty outside! There was ice glazed all over the ground, so wearing a woolly hat was a must! Right now, I am curled up in bed, drinking a soothing peppermint tea to wind down after the busy welcoming of Monday.
Today, I want to talk about ways to motivate yourself on an ‘off’ day. We all have off days, just like we have good days, and it’s totally normal. When these ‘off’ days occur, it can be difficult to even think about the ‘to-do list’ of the day, and the sound of ‘Netflix in bed’ sounds so much more appealing! However, learning to tackle these psychological obstructions is important, as it will feel a lot more rewarding at the end of the day if you have spent it being productive!
Firstly, remind yourself that the day is just one ‘off’ day, and tomorrow will be better. Being productive now will make tomorrow feel easier – you can do this!
Begin your day with writing a ‘to-do’ list and start with the easier, less effortful tasks. This will gently encourage you to ease into the routine of the day and, simultaneously, you will be productively ticking tasks off the list!
Reward yourself with breaks. Reward yourself for being proactive and completing the tasks you initially struggled to begin with. This is a great way to make yourself proud for what you achieved, which will boost your mood.
Also, remember listen to yourself. If you really need a break, then have one. Take things slow, and whenever you feel like you need to rest, then do it. Even if it is little and often, it’s so important to listen to the body and mind and look after ourselves with great care and love.
So, there are some tips for you! I hope they help, and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading.
