How to Motivate Yourself to Achieve and Enjoy Your Work

As the popular saying goes, the beginning is usually the hardest part can be clearly seen in most workplaces around the world. Starting a task or forming a new habit requires a great deal of motivation than progressing with the task or habit once momentum kicks in. If you happen to have mental struggles or you’re stressed out, even the simplest tasks like replying to messages or completing your work report can feel impossible.

Fortunately, there are a few simple tactics that you can use to complete your tasks and enjoy your work even when you are not feeling like it. Next time you are having difficulties working on your daily tasks in the office or at home, use one of these simple techniques.

1.      Plan your day

Having a lot of tasks with no structure can make you feel tired and overwhelmed. And this will only make you feel worse. You need to manage your time effectively. Take a couple of minutes every day preferably the night before to come up with your daily routine.

For instance, it could be a few minutes of exercise in the morning or taking a walk in your neighborhood. Create it how you’d like it to be and designate a couple of hours of your day to completing these tasks. Creating a routine for your day will make your tasks more manageable. Set reminders to know when to stop and move to the next task.

2.      Break tasks into small chunks

When creating lists, you need to divide every task into small manageable chunks. Every time you cross one off your list, you’ll get boosts of dopamine that will help you stay motivated in the long run. Remember, big tasks are small tasks put together. The faster you complete the small tasks, the more you complete the big tasks. When a task becomes too boring or daunting, this is the best way to go about it.

3.      Review your progress

You need to review your progress regularly to figure out if you are on track. When you make time to sit, audit yourself, and acknowledge what you’ve accomplished, you’ll gain a sense of accomplishment for what you’ve achieved so far and what you need to do. This is one of the best ways to reduce stress and overwhelm. Most people overlook how far they’ve come.

Taking the time to go over the tasks that you’ve managed to complete during the day or week will help you stay motivated in the long run. Knowing how strong and capable you are will help you take on tasks that appeared impossible or daunting at first.

4.      Write down lists and focus on them

Starting your day with the simple act of writing down a list will not only boost your productivity but also make you feel more productive and good about yourself. If you are stressed or frustrated, try getting those negative thoughts on paper. Creating lists that boost productivity and eliminate distractions will boost your focus even when you don’t feel like it. Start with the tasks that you are good at to stay motivated throughout the day.

5.      Be honest with yourself

Are you feeling hungry, tired, or thirsty? Maybe you are stressed about your family or you aren’t feeling too well. Such uncomfortable states will make your tasks feel too difficult to complete. During such times, it’s important to figure out what’s getting in your way. This is the only way to move forward. While treating cases of fatigue and burnout might take longer, others like thirst or hunger can be taken care of in minutes. Don’t be afraid to find out what’s getting in your way so that you can achieve your goals.

6.      Take a break

Whether it’s a few stretches at the office or a short walk around the block, taking short breaks during the day will help you feel relieved. Even a five-minute pause from your current tasks will boost your focus and mental clarity when you are struggling in the office. Set aside short breaks during the day to connect with your emotions. This will help you stay refreshed and productive throughout the day. Some people will need more breaks than their colleagues. Therefore, avoid comparing yourself to others.

7.      Create a playlist

Most people have a specific playlist that they listen to every time they need to get a difficult task out of the way. Playing soft music in the background while working will boost your focus while helping you feel relaxed. There are lots of great playlists that you can download on YouTube or Spotify. Add a few songs regularly to boost your focus.

8.      Consume nutritious foods and drinks

The majority of people turn to coffee to get the boost needed to keep on keeping on. However, too much caffeine may negatively affect your focus and productivity. Drinking too much caffeine exaggerates the mental cloud feeling thus leading to a lack of focus. You’ll also become jittery and nervous.

You should avoid foods and drinks that are loaded with simple sugars. These include soda, sweet treats, and candy. All kinds of food and drinks are okay if taken in moderation. However, too much sugar can lead to blood sugar spikes that will leave you feeling foggy and irritable. Try as much as you can to consume a well-balanced diet centered around fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and high-quality carbs such as brown rice and whole grains.

9.      Dress for success

Whether you are anxious or stressed out, clothes can make a huge difference in how you see yourself. Wearing the outfits that you love will make you feel confident in yourself and share your positivity with others. Plus, making the effort to dress for success will help you become more organized. Remember, all you need is a change in attitude to start feeling confident and happy.

Conclusion

Motivating yourself to complete high priority tasks and achieve your goals doesn’t have to take a lot of time and energy. By practicing these simple tips, you’ll not only be a step ahead of the crowd but also feel happy about yourself and your progress.
