Autumn: what a great time to set your personal goals!
Here are five tips that will help you get closer to your goals and live a happy and motivated life this season!
1. Start taking action by doing something specific and simple
Example: Go for a 10-minute walk instead of trying for an hour, or have a glass of water instead of a litre all of a sudden. The idea is to make the first step easy.
2. Focus on your small victories
One of the things that lowers motivation and causes procrastination is measuring our success by how much remains to be done to reach our goal, instead of focusing on what we have already accomplished.
3. Set measurable goals
By setting measurable goals, you’ll increase your motivation and train your brain to see progress. Example: “I want to be healthier” (not measurable) vs. “I want good energy levels all day” (measurable).
4. Consistency is essential
Instead of aiming for too high a goal, take a big goal and break it down into small actions to do daily. This will be easier and by the “law of compound effect” you will be impressed by the results after only a few weeks and your motivation will be increased.
5. Your energy is your motivational fuel
We have already told you about it: the way you eat, your quality of sleep, the people you meet and what you let enter your brain have a fundamental influence on your level and quality of energy and make up the driving force for your motivation.
Is there anything you can improve in your lifestyle to increase your energy level and positively influence your motivation?
To your health!
