Focus on the positive!
If you’re struggling to stay motivated, then consider staying in regular contact with friends who are positive and tend to lift your spirits. If you’re feeling a bit low, it can be tempting to retreat into your shell and avoid social contact altogether, but a chat with a cheerful loved one can really give you a boost.
Staying connected acts not only as a reminder that we’re all in this together – it’s also a great way to share tips with one another on how best to navigate these strange and uncertain times.
You may also be able to come up with goals that you can work on together, even from afar. For example, if you’re finding it hard to exercise at home, then you could try arranging to do a workout with a friend over at your local park. Or, you could simply agree to text each other a few times a week to remind each other to work out and/or talk about how it’s going.
There’s no shame in admitting that you’re finding things a bit tough. Often when we open up to others, we find out that we’re not the only one feeling this way; and a problem shared can often be a problem halved.
What is keeping you motivated at the moment? Do you have any tips that you’d like to share with others? We’d love to hear from you 💋
