The amazing John Lee Hooker would certainly help us indulge our lockdown blues in irrefutable style. However, that doesn’t boost our motivation when there’s a shedload of work to be done. So how do you shake it off, so you feel ready to deliver some kick-ass work for the boss? Well, you do it like this: The following quick and easy motivation hacks will ensure you quickly revive your badass self.
1. Funny Viral Videos, Try Daily Dose of Internet: www.youtube.com
Yes, it’s true! Spend 10 minutes each day (when you are most stressed) watching something hilarious. This generally means seeing people injure themselves whilst doing a ridiculous task that is doomed from the outset. Just doing this will reset your mood and motivation.
2.Music For Motivation, Try: www.youtube.com
Okay, if you’re feeling like it’s all a bit much then step away from My Chemical Romance, Coldplay and Nirvana. Instead, look for something fun and upbeat like the Scissor Sisters. Rest assured, playing a happy song will change your mood in a flash.
3.Tea and Cake Motivation: Try Sass and Belle Positivitea, £12.08, www.amazon.co.uk
Forget about the protein bar. There’s nothing like making a pot of tea and having a huge slab of cake for raising your spirits and spurring you on (at least until the sugar crash). No seriously, a pot of tea will draw on happy memories of tea-drinking days with your nan. Then you will feel spurred on to make your day productive.
4. Mindfulness for Motivation, Try Mindfulness With Marisa Peer: www.youtube.com
Even without the motivational drive, practising mindfulness for a short time each day can really help our mental health. Focus on breathing, on being in the moment and be thankful. Imagine living in your dream house as if you are already there. Spending 10 minutes doing this each day will bring unbelievable benefits to your life. Motivation will soon be a breeze.
