Where to Find Motivation When You Think All is Lost


Whether it's in blogging or life in general, sometimes it can be really hard to stay motivated. Recently I have been feeling totally unmotivated and the slightest setback has really got me down. This is bound to happen to everyone at least once or twice. It is so important to know how to pick yourself back up and get on with it even when it feels impossible, otherwise how will you achieve anything? Even whilst writing this post I still didn't feel all that motivated. So, I used these 5 tips to really motivate myself and get inspired so I could do the best work I possibly could. And once I got some inspiration and pick me ups I felt ready to take on the world once again. 

  1. The first thing I do when I feel unmotivated is read. This could mean reading a book that you enjoy, a magazine or even a newspaper. Whatever inspires you and gets your brain working. 
  2. Next I like to write down my goals. You can either write down your goals for the day, week, or even year. Doesn't matter when as long as you have realistic goals and a time period to achieve them in. Remember to always be generous with your time limits, you don't want to make yourself stressed or rush your work. 
  3. When I'm suffering from writer's block, I find the best way I can crawl out of the pit my brain is in is to read others blogs. I have a folder on my computer of all my favourite blogs. They never fail to inspire and motivate me to get writing and create some awesome content for you guys. 
  4. Get out in the real world and explore. Going for a walk along a beautiful creek, riding your bike through a new track or sitting in a park watching the world go past you. No matter what you choose to do the actual act of getting out and getting some fresh air is the perfect way to reset your mind. 
  5. Taking a step back and looking at the larger picture always manages to put things in perspective. Even if you feel like you have totally failed and things can't get any worse, by taking a step back you will see all the doors that are yet to be opened and all the opportunities you have waiting for you. 
These things may sound all very simple but trust me they are effective. Good luck on your ventures and stay inspired because there is no shortage of beauty and inspiration in this world, you just need to know where to look. 

Lots of love,
