Motivation - Deepstash


There are two types of having no motivation:

  • Procrastination: Avoiding something because it is associated with stress and discomfort.
  • Anhedonia: No longer enjoying activities you used to enjoy. It is associated with depression.

You can increase motivation by:

  • Physical movement, even if it is just a little.
  • Remembering your goals and staying connected with them.
  • Focusing on small but consistent progress and habits, instead of big goals that are hard to keep up with.
  • Learning how to rest and relax.
  • Changing how you think about failure and treating yourself with compassion.
