  • Sleeping in
  • Excessive drinking
  • Hanging out with unmotivated and unambitious people
  • The lack of clear goals & priorities
  • Watching a lot of TV or Netflix or scrolling through social media
  • Eating bad foods that create energy crashes or a heavy feeling

Becoming highly motivated

Integrate peak-state habits in your daily life. Most peak-state habits involve the use of your body: Change the way you move, and you'll change the way you feel.

Do things like breathing exercises, take a cold shower, meditate, listen to an inspiring podcast or watch a motivational video. Focus on the pleasure of the work or review your goals. It will put you in a more energetic and motivated mindset.
