Lacking Motivation: how to cope?

Over the last two months I have been having the hardest time holding onto motivation. I have just been in what seems like a perpetual funk and I cannot, for the life of me, figure out where it came from. I have started numerous blog posts only to leave them incomplete in my folder, have made lackluster trips to the gym with complete irregularity, and have just spent a massive amount of time being completely unproductive. I have been able to catch up with friends and family over the holidays, and unwind after a very stressful semester at school, but at the end of these past two months I am realizing how much I miss my normal routine. I’ve decided the best way to tackle my lack of motivation is to just throw myself straight back into everything. I don’t particularly feel compelled to write anything right now, so I am just going to toss this post out there to get the ball rolling. I am really not feeling motivated to get myself to the gym tomorrow, but my alarm is set for me to go first thing in the morning and knock that out as well. Hopefully the more I get into the habits of my normal routine the more I will feel motivated to keep it going. Sometimes you just have to force yourself to jump back in or you’ll end up stuck in a never ending funk.

Let me know what you do when you are feeling stuck in a cycle without motivation… how do you get back on top of things?

Happy Belated New Year,

Hope that you will all be hearing much more from me in the coming weeks.
