How to Stay Motivated

In this day and age, it can be really tough to stay motivated. Jobs keep us busy. Those of us in our 20’s are still trying to climb that ladder or land that perfect job. It means going into work early and staying late or bringing work home just to keep up. I can’t imagine dating through all of that too. That’s a whole other stress.

I live in the mountains and though it may look like a life off bliss, it’s still very hard to stay motivated. Motivated to get back to working out. Motivated to write. Motivated enough to not just get home from work and lay on the couch. So what can we do to keep ourselves motivated? What or who motivates us?

I keep myself motivated by setting routines and making plans.

I am currently working on staying motivated to eat healthy and drink more water. My husband & I hit up Whole Foods about twice a week now. We cleared all the junk food out and meal prep. He makes a delicious salmon and sweet potato meal. I am staying motivated to eat healthier because once I started, I realized how much better my body and mind felt. I can’t get enough of my zero calories, zero sugar, sparkling water! Still a work in progress, but I’m getting there.

Staying motivated to write has been tougher than I’d like it to be lately. I strive myself on keeping my blog positive and light, but it’s been tough. My family and I lost my dad recently, so it’s hard to stay motivated to do anything – let alone write. Every time I write, it’s hard for me to write about the positive. But if my dad taught me anything it’s that there is always a positive in life. Always something to be grateful for. I am motivated to write because I’ve made a plan and because I know it helps me.

But what really helps me stay motivated in my every day life? The people around me. I have a husband who works harder than anyone I know. A mom who kicks ass at everything she does and a brother who never gives up no matter what. My dad is the biggest reason I keep myself motivated every day. He taught me to work hard and to never quit. Go for whatever you want because you deserve to be happy. If you want to be motivated, you have to surround yourself with motivational people.

So, it’s time to turn Netflix off for a while. Make some plans and set routines that will better you as a person. This isn’t a post about why you should get back to working out. Think bigger than that! What motivates you? Where do you need the most motivation? What do you want to achieve?
