How to Get Motivated to Get Motivated

Right now, at this very moment, I’m looking for motivation to get motivated. I know how to get motivated, I just don’t want to do it. So part of the search for that motivation is writing these words, to see if I find the motivation to get motivated.

The first part of finding the motivation to get motivated is to take some sort of action. Obviously it can’t be too complex since that’s when you get the actual motivation. So the action has to be small enough where you don’t feel like if you’re doing anything strenuous.

For me:

1) Writing a few words does the trick sometimes, other times reading something (anything) helps me get a little fire going.

2) Playing upbeat music works wonders. Especially if it’s a song you really, really like.

3) Breathing hard also works: The breathing you can do laying down so it’s probably the easiest. First start holding your breath for 20 seconds then release it as hard as you can. Repeat this 4 or 5 times. That might do the trick in motivating you to look for motivation.

    Those tips are great! I also enjoy using a cup of coffee or a chocolate chip cookie. I will get up from anywhere in the house for a cookie, and then I can have extra motivation for running later on! I call it the coffee-cookie-calorieburner method. For now, anyway.
