How to Stay Motivated The “Write” Way!
How to stay motivated: Think back to the last time you had
a surge of motivation. Try to remember how it made you feel. Do you wish you
could bottle that feeling? What was going through your mind then? If you can’t
remember, do not fret. You can be ready for it when it happens again by keeping
a pen and journal at the ready.
Journaling will help you record
thoughts, feelings, and occurrences that helped you feel motivated. This is a gift that keeps on giving because
you can refer back to the journal to motivate or keep yourself motivated. Like
a good friend, it will always be there when you need it!
How to Stay Motivated When You're Not Motivated:
Not feeling very motivated? That’s
okay, you can still record positive affirmations in your journal. Doing so is a
great exercise because it is training your brain to override your current
It also provides the added benefit of adding more juice to
flame the motivational fire.
Positive affirmations are shown to be quite effective in helping people take action, a critical component to changing one’s life.
I encourage you to keep an actual
paper journal rather than recording online (don’t be angry at me!) Documents
tend to get lost in the land of electronic files,
especially when you shut down the computer. A physical journal in front of you says
“Here I am! There’s work to be done!” This way, when you need that push, you
can simply open up the journal and start reading. Additionally, the act of
handwriting in and of itself is a therapeutic experience. It allows you to
convert your thoughts into a tangible archive.
Feel free to record motivational
tips from others into your journal. Doing so
adds more positive material to draw from
when you have a need to stay motivated. Life happens - these tips can happen in
the strangest places, so make sure you have a way of recording them even if you
don’t have your journal with you. A small notepad will suffice. You can even
record your thoughts onto your smartphone (don’t forget to write them in your
physical journal later!)

Don’t worry about
what you write in your journal. The key is to keep consistent with it. If you
write something that doesn’t make sense or is silly, either disregard it or
remove it from your journal. How to stay motivated the “write” way – keep a journal!
