3 Hacks to stay motivated:
Revisiting your INNER DIALOGUE : Our inner dialogue is like a SELF FULFILLING prophecy. So instead of constantly JUDGING yourself you can find positive voice within. There is a tendency for go-getters to view themselves as bad, unworthy of success, or less than, simply for not meeting a certain standard, which can compound the feelings of exhaustion, mental fatigue, and lethargy that we are trying to prevent. If this is you, stop right here and vow to be more conscious in your approach and mindful around judging yourself for needing to spend time rejuvenating rather than CRITICISING yourself.
Recognize Your EMOTIONAL STATE-When you give yourself the space to honor your feelings, you actually create distance between yourself and your emotional reaction. In this space, even if you have no motivation to do anything, you can choose how you want to show up to the world and for yourself. Between stimulus and response there is always a choice. The tolerance in situations which you feel are illogical can trigger negativity... and during such situations you can always decide what's your option or choice of response. These situations can be personal or professional, however if one takes a deep breath before the response, one can always ensure there is no emotional drain around the same. This takes practice, but it is the way forward.
