How to Reinvigorate Motivation: Habits to Apply to Your Life

Written by on March 8, 2019 in Conscious Living, Inspirational, Thrive with 0 Comments

Comedian Dave Chappelle aptly highlighted it in his comedy special that we are living in the ‘Age of Spin’ where too many important and radical things are happening every single day which desensitises us to what truly matters and affects us. We are living in an equally prosperous and depraved time where we have the most convenient access to all types of information. We can learn an instrument from online manuals in the comfort of our homes, become experts in fields of sciences through online lectures, and teach ourselves basic life skills from various articles and ‘how-to’ websites. We are bombarded with information and that sometimes gives us the need to do so much with so little time.

Finding the motivation to commit to our life goals can be hindered by the issues of the world partnered with our insecurities and anxiety about the future. But we shouldn’t see these facets of our life to be an end to our dreams but as significant obstacles to lead us to a fuller life.

Strengthening your relationships

No man is an island, and that remains true whether you’re seven, twenty-seven, or reaching your seventies. As much as we’d like to think that we’d be capable of living on our one once we reach the ‘adult’ stage in life, we’re still dependent on the company of others. Cherish the relationships you have. Find time to give thanks to the people you value in your life, how they make their presence known, and show it to them in acts and words. Life’s too short to keep your gratitude to yourself.

Finding your safe space

We all need a place to destress or a sanctuary where we can tune out all the noise from social media, the news, and even from friends and relatives. Having time alone is just as crucial and important as spending time with people you enjoy. Finding the courage to see the benefit of being happy with yourself is a clear indicator of personal growth and acceptance.

Try to appropriate your surroundings with what you feel or what you want to explore — redesign your environment whether it depends on the season to look for cosy winter design ideas for your home or the holidays matching the warmth and spirit of giving and being around people you love.

Living patiently

With how fast things are happening now, we might tend to stop and give up on our dreams and goals when we compare ourselves with the progress of other people. You should remember that we are all unique individuals. Life isn’t a race to live better than someone else, but it is a goal to live the best for yourself. Take the time to enjoy the struggle to get to where you want to be. Immerse yourself in the process of learning and figuring out your mistakes. Don’t pressure yourself to run at the pace of other people. Once you’ve accepted your pattern of growth, you’ll be able to see that it’s easier to move along your own path.
