It happens to all of us. We have a to-do list that’s a mile long, but really all we feel like doing is binge watching Netflix or going to sleep. And while I do feel like an occasional Netflix binge is good for the soul, there is still a lot of “adulating” that needs to happen, even in those times we aren’t feeling particularly driven. But how do you be productive when you’re not feeling motivated?
I originally wrote about this subject in a post post a few years ago after just bouncing back from a stretch when I had been feeling completely unmotivated. While I would like to say that pinpointing the sources of my lethargy and ways that helped me regain my motivation prevented me from ever feeling unmotivated again, life just doesn’t work that way! There are just some days (or sometimes weeks or even longer) where we just don’t feel like we have “it.”
After a few more stints where I was lacking of motivation over the past few years and consequently pulling myself back to being a productive member of society, I wanted to create this short free guide to share some ideas to help you work through those times when you’re feeling unmotivated.
